Contentment at each Stage in Life

images (8)This subject has been on my mind quite a bit recently and this morning as I was hanging out laundry I started thinking about it again.

In looking back over my life it seems like I have always been waiting for the next big thing to happen, then as soon as it did I couldn’t wait for the next thing…

Here are just some of the things that I thot of that I couldn’t wait to happen…

I couldn’t wait till…

  • I could go to school
  • I could graduate school
  • Get my first job
  • Quit working full time
  • Start dating my dream guy
  • Get married to my dream guy
  • Get pregnant
  • Have the baby born

And even now I catch myself thinking I can’t wait till

  • Shania can sit
  • till she can crawl, walk, eat etc
  • we have all our kids (so I don’t have to think about the dreaded labor) :/

And all of a sudden I will wake up and our kids will all have grown and left home. Whoa hopefully thats a ways off 🙂

Now I don’t necessarily think these are all wrong, but I was just really challenged this morning that I am gonna quit wishing for the next good thing in my life and fully ENJOY and ‘live in the moment’ that God has me in right now!

Just some of my ramblings…

Have a blessed day.
