My good friend, Rachel, sent this to me tonight. I love how life doesn't turn out like we plan, but if we're patient, we see how it turns out better than we could have planned. Depending on our particular circumstance or trial, it may take us longer to get to the point where we see the blessings that come from our trials, and our life molding into something far more beautiful than we could have orchestrated ourselves. With each new step in my life -- each new "adventure" that I must overcome, I hope that I am able to more quickly turn to the Lord for His support and guidance. Until then, I'm face with one trial after another until I master humility -- and that may take a lifetime.
