i'm not old...

but lately for some reason I've been reflecting in ways that make me feel old.

For example, I look at my hands and realize that they've finally thinned out... not sure why, but my hands have always been on the "chunkier" side, and now they're not. Apparently my older brother had the same thing... my mom always told me that his hands looked like little kid/baby hands til he was in his mid-twenties. I look down sometimes and see my mom's hands. And I love that, because I've always wished for hands like my mom's. It also makes me stop and think about where I am right now. Who I am and what I've done so far.

Reality becomes something different for everyone. Whether good or bad.

I would like to know more about my future, but I think I would get bored if i knew what was going to happen by next year. That or I would become complacent, feeling that my life has already been set.

Right now in my life, I feel challenged daily. I'm facing some huge life changes right now, and scary as it may be, the scariness factor in no way outweighs my craving for adventure and the lure of the unknown.

That's all. Kinda random, I know :)

interesting... i always looked at my mama's hands and wanted hands like hers -- age spots and all -- and now i'm getting them. :) aren't we funny? ... and like my mama used to say, "funny peculiar, not funny haha!"

i'm excited about the path He has you on ... keep seeking Him and you'll have an adventure of a lifetime!

So often we do want to know what is down the road in life, but you are right on - we would become bored or to restless because it was not happening yet. So glad we serve a God who knows what is best for us better than we do!! Sounds exciting to me, Amanda...enjoy each step of the journey!!
