FANTASTIC FRIDAY/ FANTASTIC YOU
We all need to be good for something. Even a pesky mosquito is good for something because it provides food for fish and bats. We were all made for a purpose in life. I don't think the good Lord made any mistakes about that one for sure.
I've been doing some re-thinking about what my purpose in life truly is lately. I know that when I had family at home my purpose was to provide for them. When I worked my purpose was to a good job. When you retire and the kids are gone then you have to discover some new purpose to your life.
If you don't find your purpose then you just drift through life, When you are drifting there is no control or sense of direction and nothing to aim for.
It is very empowering to have a purpose in life. You truly feel alive and your days are brighter. To many my purpose, for right now anyway, seems to be the comforter, the sounding board, the back up baby sitter, and the the pray-er (meaning I get a lot of prayer requests). Most of the time my purpose is living a life of solitude, just enjoying the beauty of each moment as it comes.
Each of us has a different purpose in life. That purpose is driving force for setting our goals. Doing what I love and loving what I do is my purpose. Living each day looking for the wonder all around me and doing what I can to the best of my ability. Maybe that is purpose enough to last me a life time.
And ever those, who would enjoyment gain
Must find it in the purpose they pursue

I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
