A couple of days ago I went into town to run some errands. Of course, I had my 5 month old with me, so after a couple of stops, it was time to feed him. We stopped at a park and got out to enjoy the sun, and take his first ride in a swing. It was great fun, he got a kick out of the swing, and since there was no one else there, ate really well too.
While I was sitting there feeding him, a woman pulled up and got out of her car. She was obviously a professional, in fact, she could have been me, only a year ago. She had a notebook with her and was reviewing some documents. I couldn't help but think of the many times, as a sales representative, I had done the same thing; pull up to a park in between business appointments to review things and go over my game plan for the next call. It was a little odd, sort of like traveling back through time and looking at myself. . .
The best part is that I wouldn't take a million dollars to trade places with her. There I sat, enjoying the sunshine, nursing my baby boy, and thinking about what I was going to make my wonderful husband for dinner, sending up prayers of thanksgiving for all God has blessed me with and the radical changes he has made in my life.
How wonderful to be in the will of God, and have him show me so clearly. How amazing that he changes our heart long before he changes our circumstances and truly "gives us the desires of our heart."
