* Life’s Chapters

I do love a good chapter book. When I’m reading one, I always want to get to the end of the chapter before I put in my bookmark and leave it. It’s a good stopping point and it gives me closure for that reading session but I know I’m not done with the whole story yet.

I recently heard an interview with Christian music artist Amy Grant and she was talking about the chapters in her life.  She said that each chapter does not define us but works together to create the story of our life. Some chapters are good and some are bad but the total is what makes our story. What very wise words.

When I think about some of the chapters of my life, I wish I could go back and change a few events or decisions that I made. However, if I did, would I appreciate the chapter I’m living right now? Each chapter has made me the person God designed me to be, flaws and all. In fact, some of the hardest and saddest chapters have been the ones where I grew the most as a person.

I hope I have a few more chapters to live and write. I want to travel some more and spend time with my children and grandchildren. The beautiful thing though is that when I get to the end of my story, the last chapter, I already know how it ends. No, I don’t know exactly how my life will end but I do know when it does, I will be in heaven with Jesus. Now that my friend, is the perfect ending.

Blessings, Cindy J
