We had this perfect two year plan. Brian would get two years as a Quality Engineering Director under his belt, we'd move back to Denton, Texas and live happily ever after.
And here we are five years later.
God has a funny sense of humor sometimes, doesn't He?
These five years have held so many amazing moments:
- the beginning of this blog
- the start of a career in photography
- singing backup for Mallary Hope
- the beginning of my etsy shop
- recording a few songs with a friend
- sister-in-laws getting married
- leaving my day job
- my brother getting married
- launched Create + Focus
It's held sad moments, too:
But today, as I think about the significance of five years, I can't help but think that it all led up to that little fifth pair of shoes.
Tiny, perfect feet filling the hole God knew in my heart.
As I type this, Riley is sitting at the kitchen table coloring with Julia and Nate. It is like he has always been here.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. - Ecclesiastes 3:11
Happy five years!
God is good, All the time! And all the time, God is good!
