What Do You Want Your Life To Look Like?

I was watching Oprah today and listening to her guest, Bob Greene, when he posed a question..."what do you want your life to look like?" Hmmm? Seems like a simple enough question, but is it really? As a little girl, I wanted the fairy tale (didn't we all?)...the white house with the white picket fence...2 kids...2 cars in the garage. Now...I just want normal, routine, life. I want to wake up in the morning to a sweet kiss from my husband. I want to come home at the end of the day and cook dinner with my family surrounding me...laughing and talking about our day. I want Friday date nights with the one I adore where we talk, laugh, dream...together. I want lazy Saturdays with the kids snuggled in with mom and dad. I want to worship God with all that I am, kneeling at the altar with my Beloved. I don't need or want material possessions. I need happy moments with my I need to know at the end of the matter what life threw at me....I have a safe place to land. And that my husband will be there to hold me when I comfort me when I hurt....share my joys and laugh with me. I need him to just be there. So many times we take that for granted. I know that I have. Now, I know the true importance of of being there. So, don't just show present. What do I want my life to look like? Contentment.

Oh, how I wish there was something I could do or say to make it better. I have searched and found several scriptures that talk about fear,and the one that speaks the loudest is "Fear not for I am with you." and He is there with you. I pray that He will put his arms round you and His presence be so strong and real that you find His peace and comfort. I love you Gin. If you need to talk Im a night owl anytime you need me. Im here V
