Life is like a bag full of surprises that have me exclaiming "Ooh la la!" Ok, maybe I don't say those exact words, but there are many events of life that surprise me.

If you were to ask me 10 years ago what I'd be doing in 10 years, there is no way I would have been able to guess most of what my current life looks like. 

For example, I thought I'd pursue music. Not the music that fills my current life, but strictly classical music. 

I saw myself living in the suburbs and never considered myself a city girl. But I love the city now and can't imagine settling in the suburbs. Mostly, I saw myself living in the predominantly white suburbs I grew up in and in a bubble. But that idea has no appeal to me now. I love the diversity of my neighborhood and the challenges and joys it brings.

This doesn't mean that I've stopped dreaming and pursuing those dreams. I've just been more willing to allow God to surprise me over the years as I have learned that His plans are better. When God shuts one door and leads me through a door I hadn't seen before, it may be daunting and/or exciting. But I know that this is His loving way to guide me toward His greater purpose for my life.

So let those "ooh la la" moments happen & embrace them!
