“It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful” is something Myquillyn Smith, The Nester, says and posts often. It is a reminder I need. After reading her book, The Nesting Place, I understand it to be something she has come to believe, but not without a struggle we may also understand well.
In her book she says, “I can accept the fact that my house and life and body aren’t perfect, because I trust there is a greater purpose. I trust that God knows what He’s doing, and I don’t have to panic and attempt to make sense of it all. I’ve given up trying to control our circumstances and instead am determined to create a home wherever we are. And that’s made all the difference.”
I really do not know what I could add to this. I can only let go and nod and declare in agreement. Will you also, no matter what place you are in?
I trust there is a greater purpose. I trust that God knows what He’s doing.
