The Right Piece….

Growing up, this was one of my favorite toys!  In fact I had 3 different ones…one identical to this, a square one, and one that looked like a turtle.

But it never occurred to me until tonight, just how one of these puzzles can represent our lives.  You see, with this puzzle, you can only fit the right shape in the right hole…it’s pointless to even try to push the square piece through the star shaped hole, it won’t go in, and only leaves you frustrated and aggravated at its resistance.

There are many times when we try to fill the “God-shaped” hole in our lives, with something that just doesn’t fit…money, love, drugs, alcohol, etc.  We can keep trying all these different ‘pieces’, but it’s pointless….only God can fill that void.

Only when you get the right piece to the puzzle does it make sense…

An Update on Us :)

In the past few months since my last blog post, a lot has happened! Time flew quickly (although at times it seemed to crawl for us!), and on June 28th, Kyle & I got engaged 🙂 It wasn’t really a surprise, since we already had a date set and wedding plans were well under way, but it was still special!

Kyle and I went into town to pick up my ring, and on the way back to the van, we sat on a park bench, and he proceeded to ask me to marry him 🙂 I barely let him get the words out before I answered with a huge smile and the words “Indubitably!”.

It has been so amazing how God has continued to bless Kyle and I, as we continue to serve Him!!

Kyle & Sara2

It was TOTALLY worth the wait!!!
