One of the things John and I have learned is the idea of "living the life given and not the life planned." The truth is I just read the above quote from a friends blog :), and I have been chewing over that thought a ton since it first filled my mind. It is really true, especially living here. The picture below is the reality that our power or "light" is not on very much. So, we live in the darkness in our home some. (Now come one, don't get me on the spiritual side of living in the light. We know that, but day in and day out living life, darkness)
So today's snap reminds me that John and I and our children have learned to live this life that has been given, even if it wasn't what we had thought or planned. Amen!!
