Just when you think you have life figured out or things seem to be going smooth, reality hits you in the face. Things you hoped for do not happen; things you did not want to happen, do; and, you are on a journey in which the only constant is change. Those who do not have a strong faith in God often have trouble adjusting to these changes. Seek your strength, direction, and affirmation from the One who rules over all things! By the way, the older I get the more I realize that His plans for my life, not the expectations of others, are what matters. May I live this out in faith.
