Thankful Thirty...

-->
I turned 30 on the 6th of July. It’s so beautiful this life I live. The Beatitudes song I heard at Hillsong Color Conference has become my favorite… especially this line “If just to know you, if just to love you, what more can I ask for? what more can I ask for?”

I just read through my 25th birthday post. Here’s a little excerpt from it Five years from now? I’d be closer to the light, close enough to see my path and know where the next perfect turn leads…
I can't paint pictures of expectations; I don't have the right colors. The canvas may seem bare now, but who says that's not the whole idea. I am a vessel, grooming and waiting to be made into what I ought to be.

And  here I am, five years after… I’m indeed closer to the light, my path’s been shinning brighter, and God has taken me on paths I never would have wanted to walk on in my own wisdom. I’m still leaving my canvas bare… He’s a better painter. I still can’t paint pictures of expectations in details… but I expect the very best of the very best.

I’m thankful for this new path, for this new phase I’ve been brought into. Indeed, I am blessed beyond measure.
