A Bend In The Road

If there has to be a bend, I would choose this one!

Just when you think you know where you are headed, God changes directions on you. . .

I thought I had retired from bus driving when the school year was over!
Jesse graduated and that meant no more tuition.
I was looking ahead to quiet, relaxed mornings and long days full of  baking, cooking, visiting, helping, gardening, preserving, crafting, reading, walking and just loving my family.

But, it seems God has something else in mind.  . .
I learned on Saturday that my job has yet to be filled. . .

Would I consider. . .????

So, for the the time being, I will once again be driving kids to school everyday.
While this is not the direction I thought my days were heading, it's comforting to know that it's all in God's hands and He works everything for my good.

Who knows what might be around that bend in the road. . .

Now I'm off to find some cool window stickers for the bus.
I do love to decorate my bus for the kids!

It is definitely a comfort to know that God is leading us! You are a softy, though :)

Yes things do have a way of changing, but we have the comfort knowing that God is indeed in charge. I am actually looking forward to driving the bus again, and you are like me i love to decorate my bus as well, and my kids appreciate it, the little kids anyway.

Hmmm. While I should look at it that way too, my first reaction is "NO! DON'T DO IT!" Shoot. I was looking forward to you have all that free time too...
