I was listening to Beth Moore on the way to Atlanta yesterday. I have most of her bible studies and I listen to them on my 3 hour trip back and forth. She is detailed in her study and she really makes me think. I enjoy her southern accent and I really feel like she loves the Lord. I was listening to a study yesterday that made me think. She said, "What season are you in your life?"
I had to really stop and think. I have had seasons where I was a young mother, middle aged and now I'm at a place where I suppose I should be thinking about retirement, but I'm not. I love working and I hope I have quite a few years left in my career. If the Lord has something else for me though, I want to be open.
I have thought about teaching at some point when I move back to South Carolina for good. I'm interested in so many things and I would love to share my love with children. I don't ever want to stop learning and teaching would be a great way to continue learning.
One thing about this season is that I have finally stopped worrying so much about some of the stuff that occupied my mind constantly say twenty or thirty years ago. Things like...what am I going to do with my life? Who am I really? Will I ever see my daughter as an adult?
I want to live out this season enjoying every single day I'm given.
