I don't know about you but it seems like I'm always looking forward to the weekends.

I love the weekends.  Not having to get up and get ready for work. Being outside, all those things. 

But for some reason right now weekend evenings seem tough for me.

I think I know's the fact that my days are SO busy, that when things stop around 7ish it seems odd.
That and the fact that the sister is gone all the time now because of the new boyfriend. 

It makes the house quiet and lonely in the evenings.  
And I don't like it.

Even though I know it won't stay that way long. 
Soon the weather will cool and I'll be able to run again (sorry folks but I'm too big of a wuss to keep running when it's 95 or hotter).
The photo sessions will start up again - 2 scheduled already & I'll be working a bridal fair in October.
So soon I'll be too busy to be lonely these weekend evenings.

But I also know, as wedding season approaches it's going to get harder.

To see everyone with that special someone will be rough, not that I will be exstatic for my friends who have found their special someone, but I long for the day that I find my own special someone.

I know that God has a plan and a purpose for my walking this path at this time in my life.  And I may not understand it, I may not always like it. But I trust him.  I trust that even when I don't know where I'm going, He knows where I'm going and he ALSO knows just how to get me there.

Besides, with all the things planned for spring, like going back to school, I better enjoy the down time while I can.
It's not going to last forever.

Leanna, you are right! God does have a plan for your life. Not just a plan or even a good plan but a perfect plan for your life! You are exactly where God wants you to be and doing exactly what he wants you to do... don't let them (or what others have, aka a special someone) rob you of that joy!

I wish I could say I came up with these words of encouragement but I didn't. They are words from others who have made an impact in my life. Their words have comforted me and lifted me up but they are not all ways easy to apply. :0) They are just a start.

Psalm 145:18-19 God bless your day!
