“I desire to do your will, O my God;
your law is within my heart.”
Psalm 40:8
In Max Lucado’s book Grace for the Moment he uses snippets from his various writings to share thoughts for each day.  In a recent reflection he used this scripture and writings from his book The Great House of GodHe wrote “Want to know God’s will for your life? Then answer this question: what ignites your heart?”  He goes on to encourage one to answer the call of ones heart.
I have to ask myself at the age of 49…what is the call of my heart? I am not sure that I know.  I joke about the fact that I am “almost 50 and still do not know what I want to be when I grow up!”  I know I enjoyed taking a class this past semester at the community college, I know I would like to take one in the fall, but I do not really know what I want to achieve!  I feel like I was an OK Mom, but my son is a young man, making his own decisions…not much I can do there.  I feel like I am a decent wife, ever striving to improve…I don’t know what the Lord has for me…I don’t know what ignites my heart…so I guess I will just continue trying to find out.  What ignites your heart?

On Saturday, John and I took the day and drove to the Finger Lakes region of New York State, just to look around.  It is only about 3 hours from us and we had never been…it was beautiful! This was taken where we had lunch.  We ate outside on the deck…it was beautiful.  A place called Kidders Landing.  There are some lovely falls and beautiful scenery.
Again…I would love to know what ignites YOUR heart…maybe it will inspire me!
