Dream Fulfilled



                                                                           www.allposters.com


My friend Karen's son Nigel asked me tonight what my dreams were when I was his age.   I told him that I was living the dream that I had.

I always wanted to be a wife and mother.  I was interested in nursing and maybe being a teacher because I love children, and while I never went to school to become a nurse or a teacher, God has graciously granted me those things as well!

I have a wonderful husband, and lovely family, a delightful home.  In the day to day work of my life I teach my children, love my husband, cook, clean, take care of sickness and boo boos.  

I am now a grandma to the sweetest baby girl in the world!

I have had the privilege of studying medicinal herbs, learning to garden, animal husbandry.  

I sew, I knit and crochet.  I bake.  

I welcome people into my home on a weekly basis.

I also am the president of a homeschool co-op.

So you see God granted me the desires of my heart and then some!  He gave me some dreams that I didn't even know I had!

What about you?  Are you living the life you always wanted?  Has God given you those desires or has He changed your desires?

Tell me all about it!  I love to hear your stories!

  1. My dreams are similar to yours. It took 10 years to become a mother. I can say my home is my favorite place to be. I'd rather have company in than go to a restaurant. The Proverbs 31 woman brought in income. I am praying for God to show me what I can do to do that yet still be a stay at home mother. I am so thankful that my husband desires (not demands) me to be home and that we are blessed to home school. Sometimes finances are tight, but God always supplies.

  3. i'm thinking i'll be in the minority here ... but here goes.

    i never wanted to marry or have children. i wanted a career. that's what i persued. i was a feminist.

    then Jesus Christ changed my heart, my mind and my life.

    i married. at 30.
    i became a mother. at 32.
    i am a wife.
    i am a homemaker.
    i am serving my Lord.
    i am experiencing *true* liberation.

    His ways are not our ways.
    praise His holy name!!!
