Closing The Gap

I never expected to turn thirty and have it all figured out. But standing as a child, where the gap between adolescence and maturation seems as wide as the Grand Canyon, 30 is a lifetime away.

If you had asked the me THEN where I thought I would be now, it would not be so radically different from where God (and my dreams) have led me. The path was a little rockier and there were a few surprises here and there, and I am not QUITE where I wanted to be (yet), but it’s coming.

I’m closing the gap. The Grand Canyon has shrunk to the size of the spacing between concrete pavers on a city sidewalk.

It’s here. Today, I turned 30.


Now that I’ve had my requisite moment of reflection, it’s time to get back to work.

Tomorrow is coming quickly. You can close the gap. Take heart and keep working. (Tweet this)

When ‘tomorrow’ arrives, we’ll celebrate together.

“We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving, and we all have the power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing.” – Louisa May Alcott
