I am in a season of anticipation. I am so ready to start the next stage of our lives, yet so unprepared. I am wanting to soak up as much family time as I can, yet savoring the time to myself. I feel the need to educate myself, and also to leave room for being taught.
I know God is preparing me for all the future contrasts I will encounter. He is giving me the opportunity in this familiar environment to work through some of this. I am not too sure I'm doing a great job though. I know that I have things to do, but I know that the work will be inevitable, so I am leaning toward the soft comforts now. I don't think it will serve me well in the end!
Perhaps I am like the shoes: meant for pounding the pavement, but hanging out and enjoying the view - at least until it rains!
