Once upon a time, a young woman stood on a Mexican rooftop…
awed by the beauty before her and overwhelmed with feelings of un-deservedness, excitement and a strong desire to be there – forever.
With each beat her heart was telling her that this was God’s will, God’s future for her, and she prayed fervently that it might be so.
Flash forward twelve years: This morning an older woman, the same and yet different in so many ways, looked out her window and surprised by the memory, thrilled to re-live that moment of joy.
A different window, the same rooftop glory.
A different city in my beloved Mexico, the same sense of awe.
A different year, the same gratitude and excitement to be right here, right now. The same assurance that this is His will, and the same desire to stay here – forever.
