Coffe Date

Since we are on a coffee date I thought I would at least show you where I am sitting as we sip our coffee with Pumpkin Spice creamer.
{:Yes I know my coffee cup is not glamorous at all, but it goes in the dishwasher:}

Anyway, as we sit down I would tell you how amazing you look, and how incredible it is that you stay so busy with all you do and yet always look so put together. We're women, it's just what we do right?

As I am sitting here, I literally cannot believe how much has happened in life in the two short months since our last coffee date. Since then three of my friends have gotten married and three other awesome people in my world are now engaged.

While all of my friends are planning their babies first birthday parties, picking out baby names, decorating nurseries, and trying on wedding gowns and going cake tasting, I am more worried about those big decisions in my life like...what nail polish color am I going to try next, and should I get a huge bottle of Ragu or Prego spaghetti sauce this week for the 4 times I will make pasta in the next 5 days?

I am definitely at that age where my friends and I are all the same age but our lives are so vastly different. It's not a bad thing by any means, it is just a place that I have never been before and a place that I find a lot of people my age are at whether they have children, just got married or engaged, or are just living life for the next nail polish color.

It is often hard to balance everything. I have friends with kids who suddenly say they find themselves loving their family but missing the time they had with their girlfriends. Then there are people like me who miss their married girlfriends but are so busy with the other things in life that they can hardly find time to breath. It can be hard to navigate life at this age with so many of your closest friends at every point along life's journey.

But wherever you are remember this...
1 Corn. 7:17
And don’t be wishing you were someplace else or with someone else. Where you are right now is God’s place for you. Live and obey and love and believe right there.

You are in God's hands and he is strengthening and sustaining you in your season right now!
I don't want to miss the season I am in NOW because I'm longing for the next one. Let's being women who are committing to flourish right here in our own worlds and in our own season.
