I read this article this evening and thought of "story"... what it means to take the circumstances given to us by the Lord and choose, by faith, to "write our lives" in a way that glorifies God.
My new chapter? I'm taking on training for a triathlon! (here's another interesting triathlon site.) This is *way* outside of my comfort zone, but when I said "yes" to the opportunity (and faced my fear of the unknown), I found, to my surprise, that I was having fun! (ok, so I'm still more than a little intimidated and scared of some parts of this, but overall I'm having a blast! Plus it keeps me very, very humble.)
It's significantly harder to get strong and fit now, at 46 after having 12 children than it was when I was in my 20s, but so rewarding to begin to "feel good in my own skin" again. In addition to that, (and really higher on my priority list) I have also been blessed to make some new friends that I never would have met otherwise.
Here's to new chapters and
joyfully glorifying God and
learning to depend on Him in new ways,
