Traveling with Christ

Plans

So often I make plans; think of things I want to do, places I want to go, people I want to see as does Nick. I think we all do. I don’t know that it’s any different for any age. We plan and we dream. The plans and dreams change, but we continue the planning and dreaming. Some people are able to carry through and accomplish their plans and dreams while others keep on planning and dreaming. Someday . . .

Who’d have thought I’d remarry, that I’d live in TX, that I’d serve a ministry that lets me meet other travelers and serve a variety of Christian ministries around this beautiful country of ours? Again who would have thought I’d be spending summers in TX where the temperatures are regularly over 100 degrees. Certainly not me! Summers were hot enough in FL for me. Nick and I both said we’d be out of TX during the summers.

Yet where did we spend this summer? In TX. In hot, humid TX. It was quite the experience for us. We even managed to walk up and back to get our mail in the middle of the day–peak hot temperature time! And we’ve gotten used to it. And, just like in FL, you get the outside work done before lunch, so you can work inside during the peak heat hours of the day.

The change in plans was necessitated by my health issues. Well, actually necessitated by the Lord. Proverbs 16:9 A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps. It’s taken us a while, but we’re learning this. We’re still working on the “Ask. . . ; seek His will. . .” part of it, I will admit. Our tendencies is still to jump in first, then ask. As we look back, we can see how the Lord had a purpose in the plan changes. We may not see that at the time, but hindsight (isn’t it great?) allows us to see reasons for what’s happened. Not always. But that’s okay. It’s His direction for our lives. That’s where we want to be or should want to be.

So what are your plans, your dreams? How do you plan? How do you accomplish your dreams? Have you? Just wondering . . .

Blessings,
Boo and Nick

    I live each second of each day as it it were my last & make the most of it. With my mounting health issues…I am so grateful that the Lord allows me to wake up each morning. Mike also has health issues but we deal with everything together. Thank you for sharing your blog with us.

    I am so glad you guys are doing well! I am seeking for not just some, but all that God has and wants to pour out on me. So for me, this is a time of pressing in to His presence and Love.
