I Never Thought…

When I was a kid, I never thought I would like tomatoes…now I’m 26 and I think they are pretty delicious.

When I was a teenager, I never thought I would leave college without a boyfriend…now I’m a college grad and I still don’t have a boyfriend.

When I was looking for colleges, I never thought I would go on to graduate school…now I have a Masters Degree in Library and Information Science.

Never in my 20’s have I really believed that I could weigh less than the weight on my driver’s license, which was 20-25 pounds less than I weighed most of the time…now I weigh 8 pounds less that what is listed.

When I was in grad school, I never thought I would have trouble finding a job after graduation…now I am struggling almost daily with the fact that I still don’t have a steady job.


Sometimes, you need to look at the past and see how things you never imagined could come true, have come to be…bad and good.

Take a breath.

Remind yourself of who you are and who God is.

Then, trust that things you just can’t see happening are going to happen…something might just be in the works right now.

  1. As always, your posts delight my soul!

    PS Tomatoes is spelled with an “e”. Still working on drawing up adoption papers for all of you… you know who you are…..Love you lots!

  2. When I was in high school, I was sure I would be married with kids younger than my mom was (23 seemed soooooo old!). That certainly did not happen.

    When I was in college, I was certain that I would be living in another country by now. Indiana isn’t quite what I was thinking.

    In August, when asked if I wanted that new job, I said “Hell no!”

    It is a VERY good thing that God is in charge of managing the bigger picture, and not us.

    You are wonderful, and God is in control. In small group this week, we studied Romans 8. All things work together for the good of those who love God.
