Opening a Door

January 14, 2013

There are many times in my life that doors have been closed.  Closed to journeys that I had prepared for and dreamed about.

So many paths that I was ready to take, but somehow got lost and stumbled.  Then the door would close.  But God was preparing me for other doors...

and for other journeys that He wanted me to take.

Lately, there are several doors that are before me in different areas of my life.   Life as a mother, wife, employee and creative soul.

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us."
- Helen Keller

I have decided not to focus on the doors that have been closed.  I am preparing to open my door and take my journey.  I do not know where it will lead me, but I have faith that God has a great journey planned.  

Wishing you a blessed day, dear friends.
