This post is brought to you by the NaBloPoMo July prompts from BlogHer. This month, I am writing about connections.
Today’s Prompt: Steve Jobs said: “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.” Discuss.
As I mentioned on Thursday, this is definitely a family that believes in connection. The dots of our past have definitely shaped our present. So, can you connect the dots of the future?
A firm believer in my faith, I trust that God is the one connecting the dots of the future. The dots that connected in the past make us who we are today. We don’t have control over how those dots will connect, but just have to trust and have faith.
Sure, I would love to have a hand in how the dots will connect. There are goals, like losing a few more pounds (and Greg gaining a few), working a dream job, having another baby (we are mildly crazy in the fact that we are willing to risk being outnumbered by small humans), and buying our dream house. There are things I hope we get to do and experience (like Hawaii, watching the kids graduate and get married, becoming grandparents, retiring to a beach). But, as we have learned, we have no control over the hands we are dealt and have to put the trust in the Creator. He connects the dots so we don’t have to.
