Whose Life is This?!

I find myself in the strangest place this morning....getting ready to go on a business trip.  What?  Me?  Whose life is this, anyway?!  I've settled happily into my role in the past 10 years....wife, mom, homemaker.  These are the things that make me.  These are the tasks and roles that God's been using to shape me, form me...the lowly lump of clay that I am.

And suddenly...a business trip?!

I never dreamed that there could be work for me that might be fulfilling enough to make me even consider leaving my family for a few days.

Yet here I am.  My carry-on bags are packed.  The presentation is on the thumb drive.  The boarding passes are printed.  My sweet husband came home from the store yesterday with a tiny little travel sized lint roller.  My baby girl keeps telling me she doesn't want me to go.  My heart breaks just a little.

But then I think about what I'm doing, and how I got here, and where I am.

What I'm doing -- I'm building something real and lasting.  Not just for myself, but for all of these little ones.

How I got here -- I prayed and sought my Lord every step along this path.

Where I am -- I am in Him AND getting ready for a business trip - doing something I never thought I'd even consider, let alone love.  But He knew.  He knew where I was headed the entire time.  He loves me.  He watches over me.  He smiles each time I work this business because only He can see the enormous leap of faith it takes me each day to just DO this.  He blesses me.

So today...another leap of faith.

An EXITING and FUN leap of faith!  I know I'm in Him.  I know I'm where I'm supposed to be.  I can feel Him moving in my life.  I find myself waiting in breathless anticipation to see what He has in store for me.

And I know that it's going to be good.  Very good.


PS.  I'm headed to Wisconsin to do a Business Lauch Celebration Event for my new business partner, Jenny.  She's blogging about her first year in this business...go say hello and encourage her :-)
