"i was thirty seven and still discovering who i was."
this struck a chord with my heart instantly. i think it is because the season of life i seem to be in right now is continually showing me that i have alot to discover about myself. a few weeks ago, while talking to one of my very best friends, she said that she still finds herself thinking 'when is my life really going to start'. it resonated with me, because i find myself constantly thinking "well i will do such and such when i get older or when things settle down or when i get a job or when justin doesnt have to work so much etc etc etc". but the thing is, those times may or may not come and go and still i dont do 'such and such'. its like we are always putting that part off and putting the urgency of the mundane for today's work. do any of you do this?
randomness i know. and i am not sure i have a point, i just loved the quote and the reminder that i will continually be discovering who i am (especially spiritually) for eternity. but our Lord knows me so much better than I know myself.
** i was looking for this quote i love for this post, but cannot track it down. it says something to the effect of not sacrificing what is holy on the altar of what is urgent... anyone know this quote??
