I came across this picture in our toy closet the other day when I was putting a game away and it stopped me in my tracks. Max drew it several years ago for a book report at school based on the book “The Tale of Three Trees“. I cry every single time I read it…and every time Max says it’s his favorite book. I love reading it at Christmastime. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it as you prepare Him room this Christmas season!
I see my own story when I read this book. So much of my life I would never have chosen. But I would never trade any of it for anything in the world. I am so grateful that God’s plans for us are immeasurably more than we could ever ask for imagine!
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
