To a large extant it has been the ability to have a vision beyond my circumstances that has allowed me to live as well as I have these past several years. It has allowed me to do things I swore that I could never do. It has allowed me to be someone, I didn’t think that I’d ever get to be.
But I did, and I am.
It has allowed me to survive the ending of a marriage. It has allowed me to grow as a father to my sons. It has allowed me to share my experience with others, It has allowed me to do a lot of things I never was able to do before; not spending money I don’t have, gardening, landscaping, working out, and writing, being but a few of them.
But something happened this weekend, something got let go.
And for the first time, in a very real way, I feel like I’m there now. Not at the end, but the path I was meant to be on. Not to say that everything is easy, or that I still don’t have an awful lot to learn, or that life itself won’t happen, but that I know now without a doubt that I have everything I need, and that the vision that I had is now.
It certainly makes it easier to be where your feet are.
It seems to be where the grace of a loving God always takes me.
