not always

how is it we dream- we question and worry about the future
the future comes and it's nothing like we imagined
sometimes worse, most times just different and then when better---we, i, still question-

hard to let go of thinking things will work like we have seen them in the past-
hard to set about acting on the answers we have been given

such is life, full of endless hours wondering and stilling the fears that ebb into our consciousness-
all is for purpose--could it truly be ----when do the windows open wide enough to see the plan

faith at what's not seen---okay i agree---but what of the world around us---how dissimilar it appears at times

the one foot in the one foot, you know-----

go with it-let it be---stop asking over and over, is this the real thing--is this the story --is this the way

while all around us the rain falls and the seasons do their thing and i take a backwards glance- to discover--once in a while, you can get what you want and it might just be what you need

  1. Questioning keeps you thinking which keeps you wondering. I think you get what you ask for sometimes, but not in the way you imagined it.

    BTW-wondering and curiosity are two good attributes to have.

  6. It is nice to get what you want AND what you need- sometimes people get what they want, and then realize it wasn't what they needed.

  7. I'm an over thinker and stress about everything. I know it's not likely to change the outcome, but I just can't help it.

  13. I like your thought about the future coming and it is not like we imagined it, whether it be good or whether it be bad. I'm a worrier and a thinker and a "what if" etc., I just need to be still sometimes and let that faith really take root and trust God knows what is best for me....

    I do hope the weekend is a nice one!

  16. We never know where our path may lead. I try to take day at a time, and not question it too much. I believe the universe unfolds as it should.
