TRUE - Five Minute Friday

Many pairs of shoes inside the front door make my heart happy. Some slid neatly off and paired together, some thrown off and in various locations in the front room; but it doesn't matter - just seeing them makes me smile.


I've been away from the keyboard and blogging for almost two years.  Away so long that I couldn't even remember my sign in.  I've slid back in by joining the FMF party; but no explanation giving for my absence.  Not that you need one; but True needs one.  Does your life every get so overwhelmingly painful that you pull away from activities that you love? I did.


The last two years have not been what I thought they would be.  Tears. Sorrow. Sadness.  Not many pairs of shoes inside the front door.  As sadness and sorrow swelled like the waves, I pulled away, you could say, I caved.


Life seemed to turn upside down a couple years ago and I reeled from feeling tossed by the seas.  You know, I had my picture-perfect life all planned out.  But God had His plan.


And His way and will prevail,
Even when I felt as if I had no wind in my sail.
Tired, worn, lonely and frail
His way, His will prevail.
