Footprints in the Sand.

So much to say....been busy.
It has definitely been interesting being back here in Ontario. My heart still belongs here, even though I have been gone for close to 20 years. I wonder what God has in store for the future.

This week I have spent with two of my dearest friends, and it has been exactly what I needed. Now Lori is the one, who I tend to get into trouble with, no matter what we are doing....and not to disappoint, we have gotten into some trouble already. Now even though I don't know how to put my head under water, this week, I have surpassed all expectations, by doing a somersault off of an inner tube in Lake St.Clair. The best part, was that Lori and I were able to do this at the same time......although we didn't plan it.
Donna, the other one, was on the boat, as our 'spottter', and we all know how well that turned out. She is the stability, the voice of reason in our lives.

In this journey with God, it has been cool to see how He is so evident here.....I can feel him all the time. Now I am not saying that God is more prevalent in Ontario, but I have felt His presence ever so much.

As I walk this road, I noticed last night one thing. I am no longer walking. I was thinking about the poem, 'Footprints In the Sand,' and this week, I believe that God has definitely been carrying me.  The thing that gets me is this: for so long, I have tried to walk beside Him, fighting along the way......and now, for me to actually allow Him to carry me, is a huge step......a life changing step. Don't get me wrong, I am a little freaked about being carried and dropped.....I am nervous about where He is carrying me, but for how, I will wrap my arms around His neck.....and rest my head on His chest.....and wait.
