“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
This verse gave me hope, like sweet water during the drought after my separation and divorce. I had been married for 20 years and had believed we would grow old together. My world was shattered, like a windshield full of cracks, but somehow still in place.
Miraculously, that windshield held, in spite of foolish choices borne out of vulnerability. The pieces mended together, ever so slowly it seemed, as I climbed out of the pit of despair and learned to love myself again.
Finally, when the time was right, my soulmate found me. He was my first love who I had not seen or heard from in 39 years. It took that much time for us to learn what we needed to learn to be ready to walk through life together again.
My soulmate is now my partner. He wholeheartedly supports my goals to return to gifts of creativity, so that at the age of 60, I prepare for a leap of faith to embark on a new adventure. This is the beginning of aligning with my true nature and a return to my true self.
We never know what surprises are waiting for us – what blessings are being planned for when we are ready!
May we receive blessings in abundance!
