How many times did you get asked when you were younger, "What do you want to be when you grow up?'
I always thought being a flight attendant would be the coolest job out there! I looked into it and was crushed when I found out my eyesight was not good enough. I guess in the event of a emergency you need to be able to see to help your passengers -- even if you lose a contact.
Fast forward to present day. I am a wife, mother to two teenagers and 3 pups. I have a pretty good gig working at my kids private school. The hours are good and I get a nice tuition discount. No complaining.
Still, many days I wonder....is this where God wants me to be? Am I serving Him? What exactly is my purpose? Do I have any spiritual gifts? When I leave this Earth, will I be remembered for anything worthwhile?
Does your mind ever spin like mine? I used to be caught up with what the Jones' had, how they got it and how in the world could they ever keep it? Then I finally had a light bulb moment. Who cares what the Jones' have? What Marty and I have we earned ALL BY OURSELVES. No help from family -- Just from our own hard work and that was a huge accomplishment to me.
I AM content with what I have. I REALLY AM. Material objects don't seem to matter anymore.
I am blessed beyond measure.
I do not desire a high paying, high pressure job. I DO HOWEVER, desire my work to matter to someone or something. Maybe it does?
But am I doing everything God intended me to do? Have I grown up? I don't think so.
As I ponder over these deep thoughts, I wish you a safe and happy weekend!
