😎🐫🎤 The seasons of life are interesting to watch develop. A new season of my life was revealed to me this past weekend. I’m sure some of you will think, what took you so long? Well, all I can say is, sometimes I’m just not the sharpest crayon in the box, but I do try to be one of the brighter colors…preferably yellow. Up until I was in my mid 20’s, I never really thought about my death. But then it seemed like overnight I suddenly had a fear of death. I had three very young daughters at that point in my life. Then in my mid 30’s things shifted and you may have heard me say…”Take me now, I’m ready to go.” As the song goes…”All I know is I’m not home yet. This is not where I belong. Take this world and give me Jesus.” I was just ready to go. What God revealed to me and gave me a whole lot of comfort and excitement about this weekend was, I’ve spent 50 years of making mistakes, growing, learning, laughing, loving, and crying, both sad and happy tears. (My name is Shelly and yes, I’m a big crier.) And this is the time of my life that He has spent 50 years preparing me for. I (for the most part) am very comfortable with and confident about myself and who I am in God’s eyes and He’s put me here for a purpose. He’s allowed me to walk through my trials in life, based on MY choices, so that I will be better prepare to share Him and all He’s done for me. He allows others into our lives that have been where we were, so that we can pass along the wisdom He has granted us. God is telling me…”Shell now is a season to share.” This has got me excited to see what, who He brings into my life. I know I will never stop learning and growing, but I’m grateful for this new outlook on life. Bless others and be blessed.
