Plans.

Anyone remember this post?

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would not be able to run the Goofy Challenge in 2014. I had my training schedule planned out, I had prepared myself for what life would be like in the Fall with my husband working full time and interning. I had committed to completing the 30 day shred during the month of May to build muscle before I began Goofy training. I had begun planning meals for our new schedule.  What I did not plan for was a positive pregnancy test.

So when that little word "pregnant" popped up, I went through the range of emotions (excited, scared, happy, totally freaked out, extremely happy, nervous, happy, excited)

Then the Lord got a hold of me.

Jeremiah 29:11
I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out - plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. 

Sometimes you can plan, and plan and PLAN but you just you can't plan for everything. Sometimes the Lord has a different direction for your life.

I am very excited about this new phase of life. I didn't think it was possible to love my husband any more than I already do. However, when he thanks the Lord for our baby, and prays for our health each day my heart absolutely melts and I wonder if there is anything more beautiful in life than our conversations with Christ. (sorry, that was pretty sappy!)

I am blessed - very blessed.

Any of your plans change lately?
