The Boat of Life

Sometimes it’s fun

sometimes it’s bad

you just have to hang on

while it steadies

safe and sound

 

Rocking back and forth

going forward and backward

you never know where to go

will the destination be good?

 

Holding on for dear life

all you can do is pray

as you are whisked

to places unknown

with only an oar

for a guide

 

A hole might appear

putting an end to your plans,

take heed! Be cautious,

be prepared

 

Wherever it takes you

heave a sigh, let go

you’ve no control

only an idea

have faith

let that be enough

let hope be fruitful

Planning to Unplan

There are moments in our life when we either regret or bask in the choices that we make. I hope I can just simply choose what I feel with the events of my life but with the one thing, I wasn’t given a choice, with the other, I kept going back and forth until I just went with the flow. But whatever I feel with the life I lead now because of these events, I know I won’t have it any other way.

My son, Jace Gabriel Wisen, came to my life as unplanned as IMG_3985it can possibly get. I even cried when I found out I was pregnant, as unsure as I was of motherhood. Two years in though, I could say that Jace is my sunshine. My light at the end of the tunnel. My rainbow after the rain. All his giggles, coos, and gurgles send my heart a leaping and it always feels close to bursting because of so much love. He is the best unplanned event that has ever happened in my life. I never thought I’d be grateful for this unexpected surprise but I am, each and everyday.

 

 

On IMG_3872the other had, our dog Hunter, might not have come unexpectedly but he was surely not planned as well. I just came across his picture on Facebook and decided right then and there that I wanted him. Not the most ideal of life decisions when you go about it but I know I made the right decision. He may be an overly rambunctious, hyper social, and somewhat stubborn five month old Siberian Husky I have ever met but he is also the sweetest dog that has come into my life. He may have brought a lot of changes into my life like waking up real early to feed him and getting soaked every week because I’m giving him a bath but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love this dog and every waking hour he just worms his way into my heart more and more.

So you see, making plans for your life is a good thing but sometimes, it is the unplanned ones that give the greatest joy and brightness into our lives. Maybe because it’s God working. It’s His plan, not ours. He planned for our life to be like this, not us. It’s only unplanned because we didn’t take these things into consideration when going about our life. God did and that’s why it still perfectly fits our life.

The Plea

feeling-hopeful

Please

remember me now

exactly

the way

I am;

calm,

collected,

sweet;

one who

plans,

someone

who

loves life.

Please

remember me now

just

the way

I am;

optimistic,

understanding,

laughing;

one

who

truly cares,

someone

who values

life.

For when

the beast

shows itself

all of this

will

be lost,

I

will be

pushed

to the

back

forced

to watch

my very self

destroyed.
