Yesterday was my 28th birthday. I celebrated via Skype with my parents, sister, and best friend, and some of my Portuguese friends surprised me with a homemade cake! It was really yummy!


28. It’s kind of hard to comprehend. I know 28 is still “young” in the grand scheme of things, but it makes me feel old to realize it’s been ten years since I graduated high school, twelve since I got my driver’s license. At 28, my life is definitely different than what I expected. If you had asked me at 18 what my life would look like at 28, my answer would have included marriage, babies, and probably a house with a big front porch. I won’t lie and say I no longer want those things, but I am aware that many of the blessings God has given me have been possible because those desires have not yet been fulfilled. I do still want those things. Some days I want them so badly it hurts. But the truth and the hope that I rely on is that the Lord knows my heart, and more importantly, He knows and wants what’s best for me, even when I can’t see clearly enough to make that judgment myself.  I don’t know if I’ll ever get married or have kids, but I do know that God promises to satisfy me completely, in ways that no one and nothing else can. I’m clinging to that promise as I look forward to another year of His guidance and blessings!

“For he satisfies the longing soul, 
and the hungry soul he fills with good things.” 
Psalm 107:9
