I am a simple, ordinary kind of girl. There are a lot of things in this life that honestly, I don’t really “get”. Sometimes I think I fumble through the motions, trying to not look as awkward as I feel, trying to find my place and where I fit in this world.
I don’t have a lot of big dreams, big plans for the future, or for how I want the rest of my life to play out. Sometimes I wonder if perhaps a part of me has never grown up—a part of me that just wishes that life was as uncomplicated as it was when I use to spend my days hard at work in the little garden I made all by myself, or climbing into my trees to read a book and to watch the birds, or anything except face the politics and confusion of a normal day “out in the working world.”
I don’t know much about how it is going to all play out, or if the dreams I do have will ever be a reality.
All I know is that I want to live this one life that I have in such a way that I don’t miss any of these real moments. All I know is that when I get to the end of my life, of this year, to the end of today, I want to have taken time, no matter what I am, to truly delight the things that in my simple days He has seen fit to give me.
If these days are easy or hard, LORD, just teach me to not just live, but find delight in your perfect plan for my life.
