      • This is a beautiful post! I am almost your age, Caitlin, and even though my life is very different in some ways, I can relate very much to everything you have said; it is really encouraging to hear your own wisdom; it reassures me in my own path! Blessings to you!

  1. I was going to be everything from a paleontologist to a disc jockey. At least writer and dreamer stuck, and although child like faith can be difficult to hang on to, He is always with us and we are His children still.

    • Dreamers seem to find amazing opportunities to practice childlike faith. Hope your find that true.

  2. Unruly hair – I think God has a great sense of humor, don’t you? Learning to laugh with Him about those things we seem to obsess over helps me stay humble and grateful. Blessings to you and yours, xoxox

  3. Catlin,
    I have never fretted birthdays but rather embraced them. For me life is a journey with many twists and turns. After HS I envisioned a good clerical job. Trouble was I didn’t want to answer phones. I had trouble hearing and speaking and was shy. I have taken risks each decade, made mistakes, and learned a lot. Through it all God was there guiding my paths.
    Blessings 🙂

  4. This is really speaking to me right now as I am in the middle of a big transition in my life. I love that you point out that things will definitely change in our lives, but God will never change, and neither will His caring for us. Although my path is scary right now, I need to remember that God has good plans for me and He will be my comforter and my guide. Thanks!!

  5. What if, when the times of transition arise, you fail to have the courage to step onto the path that’s in front of you? And what if, now in your 40’s, you feel life has passed you by as a result?
    I love reading blogs on this site but so often feel they’re not really for the likes of me ( single women). Most women have marriages and children,and talk about the blessings they are rightly grateful for.
    It so often feels like you have lost out on all blessing if you haven’t got a husband and children and that you are being punished for a wrong.
