I always thought I would birth at least 4 or 5 children :). Growing up and as a young teacher I would always take students home with me. My mom would say "who's child do you have today"I knew as a teen that I would work with children and families. In college I had two names picked out for my preschool (Tender Loving Care – Hugs and Love). Even though I never opened a preschool the Lord has allowed me to impact children and families in a bigger way globally. Even when God changes the way or direction of your purpose and destiny, His plan is always perfect. When I look back over my life I'm so glad I allowed Him to lead.
Let Go and Let God
As Children Bring Their Broken Toys
With Tears For Us To Mend
I Brought My Broken Dreams To God,
Because He Is My Friend
But Then Instead Of Leaving Him
In Peace To Work Alone,
I Hung Around And Tried To Help,
With Ways That Were My Own
At Last, I Snatched Them Back Again
And Cried, "How Can You Be So Slow?"
"My Child" He Said, "What Could I Do?
You Never Did Let Go!" Author Unknown
