Magical Moment 384, "Considering"

I have a lot to consider lately. I've been reflecting a great deal and looking for signs since I've been accepted into a law school on Long Island. To go, or not to go? How will this affect my music goals? Is this the path I want to go down? What kind of future do I want for my family? These are the things I'm considering. In the decision making process, I thought perhaps the first step would be to spend the day in the area where we would most likely move to. If only the ultimate decision was based solely on today. It would be an easy choice as the day was absolutely perfect. 

Islip, NY has everything I could ever want:
The deer are so numerous, they're considered pests 
near Fire Island National Park.
This little red fox actually came to me when I called him.
I'm not even zooming in on my camera.
I've always been a sucker for geese. Love 'em.

A historic, beautiful lighthouse
I couldn't get enough of these giant reeds. Beautiful.

And ocean
Joy would be one happy camper if we lived here. That's for sure.
Oh why can't I be more like Joy, and only care about this?!

I suppose there is more to real life than these things however. I've been learning that life changing decisions come hand in hand with patience and faith. Lessons that will surely last long after this choice has been made. 

A man's heart plans his way, 
but the Lord directs his step. -Proverbs 16:9

Oh, what a tough decision. But what an appropriate scripture passage to cling to. Here's another:

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5, 6)

I'll offer up a prayer for wisdom for you myself. :)

You'll figure it all out in due time and your decision will be the right one. Things have a way of sorting themselves out. Congrats on being accepted though.. that's quite the accomplishment.
