I WILL RECOGNIZE IT WHEN I SEE IT....DIVINE ASSIGNMENTS......and WHY I LOVE THE RAIN.......

I’LL RECOGNIZE IT WHEN I SEE IT……DIVINE ASSIGNMENTS….

I have pretty much always lived my life by “I will recognize it when I see it….” Whether it has been a job I would want, a relationship, or even my couch…..Yes, My Couch….

I had a couch that was getting worn, but I wasn’t sure exactly what I would look for. What type, what style, what comfort…..so I simply said to myself “I will recognize it when I see it…..” And I did…..I happened to go into a furniture store one day and there it was….the perfect couch for me……I recognized it when I saw it….

Sometimes I look in the paper thinking I will get a “real job….” Instead of the wonderful one I now have. The job I have now is being a full time Mommy, homemaker, wife, writer, and painter…..When people ask me what I do I simply say “ A Lot of Everything….” And I do….and I love all that I do…..So why would I simply want to take on a job that is mediocre at best or simply take me away from my Divine Assignments which I believe are what we are likely to be passionate about….?

I believe when we stay in our Divine Assignments in life things unfold as they should. I believe when we get out of our Divine Assignment even with the best of intentions (thinking we are doing the right thing) we often mess up in ways we did not expect or simply the right opportunities dry up….There again, even with Divine Assignments….I will recognize it when I see it….I will know instinctively what is right….

A while back, I decided I should get a job outside of the home simply to get out….Spending whole days painting or writing is wonderful and yet it doesn’t do much for the social life….Two jobs came up that I thought would be fun…One working at a golf course and the second at a nice local hotel…..I drove my car all the way there to apply. I then thought “Why am I doing this….?” As truly both would take me from what I really was meant to be doing…and so I left before I applied....

I am on the road with my dreams….I didn’t say towards my dreams because I believe the road towards our dreams are as much a part of our dream as getting there……It is all a journey anyhow….so why not enjoy it is my take on things….Anyhow, If I get off of my dream map, and go onto another map (a map I think looks good but I know is away from a bigger plan) then the time spent away is taking away from what I am meant to be doing and I may miss a true opportunity because I chose to detour away from where I was supposed to be….

I do like to get sidetracked so I have to keep myself aware not to be. I have to decide “Where am I truly meant to be” not “where do I THINK I should be….” There is a big difference in my opinion……There again….I will recognize things when I see them….

I had a boyfriend before I met my husband. I knew he really wasn’t the right one for me, but I gave my time to him none the less…..A waste of time in my opinion although he was a nice enough guy…..Perhaps he was in my path to slow me down for me to see what awaited…..My Husband….One night my husband walked into where I worked…..I knew right away “I recognized it when I saw it” and so I knew right away There was my husband standing there….Now 20 some years married to that very man….I recognized him when I saw him….

So I do live my life like that….whether it is about couches, husbands, or pretty much anything else….I simply don’t take on things because it looks right…..It has to feel right….Feel right in my Soul….Often I don’t know what I am waiting for……but I know one thing….I will recognize it when I see it…

 

WHY I LOVE THE RAIN….

I simply love cloudy and rainy days…..Does that make me unusual? I don’t think so. I think there are lots of people out there that love them just as much as I do…….I love being home when it is raining and listening to all that rain hit the roof….Pitter Patter……as well as looking outside with it pouring down.

There is something comforting and cleansing about the rain…….There is also something that gets me focused on little things around my home and in my life that often I tend to overlook because I am busy being out and about…….I love to talk on the phone when it rains….I love to play a board game with my family…..I love to sew….paint….write….cook….and be creative….Yes I simply love the rain….
