I have always seen singleness as a burden of sorts. I have often found it hard to be content during single seasons. But it’s during these times when I feel like I’m waiting for something more to happen in my life that God imparts wisdom to me and cements in me the lessons He wants me to carry into the next seasons of my life. It’s during one of these seasons that He told me I am a writer. That He introduced me to the people who would become my biggest supporters, not just in writing, but as I walk through life in general. And during this particular season of singleness He has been teaching me to focus in more on Him. It is during this season, which I am really hoping is my last single season, that He is teaching me to walk by His side more completely.
So, even during these seasons that I sometimes feel are burdens I am trying to enjoy the time I have. Last night I went on a one-on-one date with my oldest son to our town’s bed race. Yes, you read that right and yes it is exactly what it sounds like. In the grand tradition of small towns mine has it’s own character. Only in my town do we celebrate the coming holiday season by racing beds on wheels through the middle of town! It’s really kind of funny to watch! Then it was home for pizza and hot chocolate with both my babies!
Let God fill you with all the tools you will need for the coming seasons of life and enjoy the time you have during the season you are walking through right now!
