I just realized that it’ll be five years this October that we purchased our house. And for some reason that number stuck out to me.
I remember when we were getting engaged and picking out a ring that I said to myself, “In five years, we will upgrade to a nicer band.” When we bought our house a year and a half later, we both discussed that “in five years we would sell or have enough money to rent our house and move to a bigger house”. And in only six months, our first born will be five years old.
It’s so funny how our expectations change and how we think that we will be somewhere in life or think we know how it will go and then realize that you are barely in control of anything. Growing up is a strange and odd world and it’s almost silly to have presumptions about how your life will turn out. We still haven’t upgraded my ring or our house and I might die of shock when Liam turns five, but I am happier than I ever could have imagined. I am thankful for the way our family is growing together and blessed to have a God that is control of our lives and future. My priorities have changed and I’m grateful now just for the time to enjoy it all.
Wonder where we will be in another five years?
If the me of the present when to the me in the past and told me about where I would be…I would be in shock and in a panic. I am glad God doesn’t reveal too much to us until the time is right.
