While swimming I noticed a tiny flower being pushed around by the currents of the water.
I stopped and watched for a while…
I felt a connection
For a long time now I’ve been at the mercy of life’s currents. Never allowing myself to put a paddle in the water and give some direction. I’ve always been moved in the direction of the children or my husband.
I am typically a go with the flow person.
But watching that little flower I realized it would eventually be overcome by the water and end up at the bottom of the pool.
That’s where I feel like I was heading until I found blogging. I would have let myself sink to the bottom and watch the world go by…
This blog is my paddle.
I am giving myself a chance.
A chance to choose direction.
The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.
