The best things in life are often unplanned and unexpected.
As I look back at the path I have walked I can see the guiding hand of God in my life. I was directed and guided to end up where I am today. It is anything but what I would have expected, or planned, but at each and every step along the way it simply felt right.
I am now living in Colorado and engaged to a wonderful woman. I finally understand what it means to truly love someone else. In March will commit to her for time and all eternity in one of the many temples of my faith. She has two amazing children whom I have already grown to love and I look forward to the prospect of being a family together.
Walking forward I seek to create a relationship with the woman I love that rivals those written of in the storybooks, immortalized in song, and versed by the poets.
The chapter of my life that began in Arizona so many years ago is now complete. My life there has come to an end and I look forward to the new beginnings of better things. I look forward to moving ever onward, forward towards the sun.
The Lord has blessed me with work and the way has been opened to guide me, step by step, to where I stand today. It is not anywhere I could have imagined… but it is right. That much I know. And I am happy in it.
Writing and contributing on Forward Walking, an Inspirational Blog that is touching more and more lives each day, has also been a great blessing in my life. Though it began in February of this year I never could have foreseen where it would lead and today I find myself attached to a movement I more than believe in, but rather – seek to embody. I am forever grateful that Seth Adam Smith was prompted to call me that day. Thank you for listening my friend.
I have not written as much on here, my personal blog, as I would have liked in recent times as many changes were taking place within my heart that I was hesitant to share. I was scared of being vulnerable in something that I couldn’t see the end of. What was I being taught, I wondered? Where was it all leading?
All I could see was that something was emerging, that I was being taught and changed from the inside out.
Moving forward I will make the time to write and regularly share the journey of my life as it occurs. I hope that my life will be as instructive to you, as you watch me live it, as it is for me in living it.
I fear that much of my personal journey this last year – the journey of a single man running from relationships to a man committed, ready, and desiring marriage – has been missed. I hope in the months and years ahead I will be able to fully communicate my journey bit by bit as I understand the lessons I was taught.
Now that life has settled down to some degree, or at least stabilized a bit, I look forward to writing regularly and sharing the journey of my life with you. I do not ask that you adopt my perspective as you read my words, but rather, that seeing the world through my eyes will gain you new perspectives upon your own.
