For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Ever wonder what you will be doing 5, 10 or 15 years from now? I do. Not the intimate details, but the over all picture. I am mostly talking about with your kids. I was watching the kids play the other day and I couldn't help but wonder what they will become. In 5 years (shoot, less than that) will we be at soccer practice or dance lessons? Will we be at swim practice or cheerleading practice? Will we be at piano lessons or softball practice? So many unknowns.

The parent side of me it is very exciting to see what my kids will grow up to be. What their passions will be. The OCD side of me wants to know because (like any parent) I want my kids to be the best they can be. Not necessarily the BEST, but the best THEY can be. So I want to start practicing with them now. But what fun would that be?

The one thing that I do know for sure is that God knows our future. He knows what the kids will become, what they will want to do and well, everything. I believe that as long as we turn to Him for guidance and instruction that He will prepare us the best He can to handle whatever comes out way! How encouraging!

I hope they still like each other....they are sisters for goodness sakes :) HAHA!
