I will continue to write lists, make plans, and dream. I will continue to ask and to try. I will take tiny, careful steps and some big, awkward ones. I will hear "yes." I will climb mountains. I will learn to wear grace and love with dangly earrings, and I'll practice giving up the things I can't control to the God who can.
Sometimes I will fall. I will fail. I will hear, "no." Sometimes I'll leave grace in a dirty pile of laundry, and sometimes I will let my worries build up until I'm not quite sure how I'm going to get up. Sometimes I will be disappointed. Sometimes I will not be sure of where to go next.
Of course, I'm all sunshine and daisies when I get what I want. Who am I going to be when I don't?
