3rd Year Reflections

3 Years Baby!

I was reading this post which is what I asked for when we were due to come here. I had a good laugh, because I thought at the time that I had seen already that God had a better plan.... but 3 years down the line - I realise that I only saw part of it.

  • Had we lived in a big town (like I had asked for), we would have been lost in the masses and never made the friends we are making in our village.
  • Had we lived close to a gym (like I had asked for), I would never have gone to run in the forest.
  • For a spiritual home different to where we had come from (although that was very cool!) - we have that in that we are able to live out what we believe daily with a variety of faiths and cultures, which is (for me anyway) the best way of being.

Sometimes it's a bit of a bugger to realise that actually you do not know what is best for you, but a relief to know that Someone does.

If I think about it, I got exactly what I wanted ... but not in the way I expected.

Forest walks
Time with new friends

Yes. This is the bestest best place for us.


  1. I think I commented on Facebook but its nice to get comments on your actual blog, don't you think?
    This is such an excellent post
    It is faith inspiring because its a long view, seeing the superior wisdom at work in your lives.
    We need reminding of that, I think.

    About your home: that is who you are and what you do.
    You can take an empty shell and make it vibrate with personality , colour and fun
    In your life and in your surroundings
    Its a wonderful gift: for you and for all those around you

    1. I do enjoy blog comments too :)
      Thank you ... I agree on it that we do need reminding that a long term view is good, and knowing that He is wiser than we think we are! x


So, what do you think?
