I have just turned 40 and oh how I cried. I wept in fact.

But with that something else was beginning to dawn in my heart, and in my mind. I have reached a point where I have suddenly decided to let go.

It is time to leap off this hill that I have been clinging to for far too long, as if it were safe. As if it were all I had.

It is time to leap like the para-glider and allow God’s currents to lift my sails and soar and allow Him to take me on a new journey with Him fully in control.

There is vast scenery ahead. He will take me to the heights where I can see it all. But He will also take me in to land in the right places where I must become involved in life and people, to form relationships and all that that brings. This is a new journey. An exciting journey and God will always be with me. Yes, I have a husband and two beautiful children. We are all in this together.
