I've been reading a book called "Plan B; What do you do when God doesn't show up the way you though He would" by Pete Wilson. I've been a little disappointed with my life so far. My four year plan of being married or engaged by the time I graduated from college didn't happen. I've got six months and it's not happening. I've also been disappointed with my writing, the struggles of getting published.
There was a particular chapter that interested me. He talks about how his child was afraid of the dark and he had to check under the bed for monsters or things that went bump in the night. It wasn't really the dark that she feared. It was the fear of the unknown. I admit t hat I still sleep with a nightlight on and I don't like the dark. Maybe I also fear the unknown. My plan was to be married and have a baby so I could be a stay-at-home Mom and write. I don't have a Plan B. It's scary. When I graduate, I don't know what I'll do for work. Though I'm hopefully traveling to New Zealand a few months after, I don't know what that will be like. I'm afraid of the unknown. I'm a planner and I'm pretty sure that God laughs when we make plans because our plans will never have as much meaning as his.
I shouldn't have a reason to be afraid of what's to come. I need to trust that God will be with me, no matter what.
I also absolutely love the love story between Aragorn and Arwen! A beautiful and ageless love. Viggo Mortensen... alas, you are incredibly handsome! :)
Hope you had a wonderful Tuesday!!
