Now What?

I've reached a weird stage in life.  I feel like I'm all grown up and now need to figure out what to do with my life.

It's not as though the kids are all grown and out of the house, but they certainly are much more independent than they used to be.

And it's quiet.  Oh so quiet.

In some ways I love the quiet.  In other ways I know the quiet isn't always good for me.  I constantly go back and forth between loving people and loving solitude.

So, I am looking for a job.  I am volunteering.  Women's Bible Study just started up again.  All good things.  But, it seems we are constantly searching in this lifetime.

I am reading "Carry On, Warrior" by Glennon Melton.  She talks about living a holey life.  As in, we are all born with a God sized hole in us and we are constantly trying to fill it with other things.  I love this lady.  She speaks to my life in a way that no one else has.  I can relate to so many things she talks about.  And, she's hilarious, which is always a plus because if you can't laugh at the craziness of this life you will lose your mind.

So, God is showing me a lot these days.  I am always grateful for His faithfulness.
