Having a very active three year old around doesn't leave me much time for thinking during the day. But during the temporary quiet of naptime, my thoughts come tumbling out. I take advantage of the quiet to do my devotions and lately I have been reading Psalms. David talks often of God giving us our heart's desire (Ps 20:4, Ps 21:2), and today I had the surprising thought that, right now, I am happy with my life.
Of course there are things in the past that I wish I could change, things that I still mourn, and things I am waiting for, but at the same time, I am grateful and blessed. God has given me my heart's desire with baby Robin, and I am finally looking forward again instead of just back. Today, I celebrate.
