July has been a month filled with transition, new adventures, plans for the forthcoming years with my future bride. While it has been hectic, it has also been a month of reflection and gratitude.
The dictum is true: God writes straight with crooked lines. As I drove down Sloat Boulevard on a rare sunny July afternoon, after completing the installation of my wall bookshelves at the office, I took a deep breath and gave thanks to God for the wonderful life he has given me. Through the immense journey of these past 10 years, I find myself with so much joy and peace in my life.
While relationships change and evolve, I have had the wonderful opportunity to reconnect with my family, strengthen our bonds. I’ve come to love my parents with a deeper love, I have come to appreciate my brother and his wife as they support Dulce and I undertaking our new adventure. And my sister, who lives life running with a passion. I’ve reconciled with the past often clouded in the immense mystery of a divine plan and I’ve come to truly look forward to a future with Dulce, someone whom I love with every beat of my heart.
This perhaps is only a phrase of the great composition that God is composing in my life. I wish there was a repeat sign because I would take it from the top all over again only to give thanks for God’s unfathomable creativity, levity, mercy, and love.
