God-sized dreams...when you worry you've wasted your life

Monday, June 21, 2010

We sit and talk. Eventually she clears her throat and quietly asks, "What do you do if you feel like you've wasted your life?" The silence hangs thick in the air between us.

It's a heavy question of the heart.

    Kris, your screen name intrigued me since I have a step-granddaughter who is a Marine wife. So when I saw the title of this blog plus the screen name I had to come and learn more.

    First of all, I read the entire blog at Holley's Dayspring blog, and thoroughly felt moved by it. I needed it right now, believe me. He has me sitting in this place with the scale not budging to teach me something . . . patience and that health is important.

    Secondly, I love all of Dayspring's cards and get their devotional. I see you posted the one for Father's Day. That was a super poem. My dad is gone, but I still spend most of Father's Day thinking of him and the example he set for me.

    I'd like to get to know you better and perhaps journey along with you on this weight loss thing. So, I've "friended" you.
