It’s Been A While…

IMG_8634-1

I stopped writing for a year.

Not that anyone else would notice, but I did.

My heart did.

I really think our hearts notice when we are silent, but we slog on.

This year has been

A wild adventure…

A school teacher-kind-of-crazy existence…

A following hard after Jesus path…

A nail-biting, waking-up-anxious-some-days kind of journey.

Tears, disappointments,  and frustrations have knocked me around,

And in true transparency, my heart doesn’t always ride the waves well…

It’s been  a season of knowing the hand to hold

And His Word abiding deep in the marrow of my bones.

Some days have been  sweeter than others.

Some days were  just hard…

Some days I chose to laugh when the tears were close…

BUT I have learned to be intentional with my time this year.

Intentional with my days…

With this gift called life…

I want to fill every crack and crevice of my journey

With the beautiful “whatevers”  of Philippines 4:8.

Whatever is…Honorable…

Just…

Pure…

Lovely…

Commendable…

Excellent…

Praiseworthy…

I am looking for life in the midst of these things…

Rose colored glasses?  Hmmm?

No… how about Jesus-tinted lenses?

That’s what I hope you find here.

So I have picked up my pen and stuck my journal in my bag…

I am ready to play with my words again.

Join me…
