What do you do when you feel everything is happening all at once? “Everything” can consist of SO MANY THINGS- excitement, frustration, grieving, contentment. It can leave us feeling as though we have nothing left.
Hello, friend. :)
It has been WAY too long. I can't tell you how many times I have started to write, all failing to find the words I want to say. I wanted to write something with meaning. Something that would help change YOUR life. Instead, God has been writing my story in ways I would never have dreamed. In the past months, I have seen a large change in my life.
God hears you.
He hears your cries. He sees your tears. Nothing will ever happen that will cause Him to be confused or surprised. He knows everything- past, present, and future.
“Will it get any easier the older I get? Will my responsibilities ever cease spinning around my head? Can I just pause and catch my breath?” School is starting. Work continues. The days become busier and the schedules get tighter. It feels as though I am trapped in a whirlwind of chaos. Everyday there is something unexpected I need to do. Somewhere else I need to go. I enjoy it! But sometimes- okay, okay, a lot of the time- it is overwhelming!!
I slowly walked up to the beautiful grand piano and set my music on the stand. I sat down- refusing to turn and face my peers who were watching my every move. I scooted forward on the bench, carefully placed my right foot on the pedal and simultaneously placed my hands on the keys. My fingers- no, my whole hands- were shaking. I don’t know if I can do this.
Fresh air. Blue sky. Green grass. What more could you ask for, right?
My family and I traveled North on Vacation to Salt Fork Lake Park and it was just simply beautiful. We stayed in a cabin on the hillside for four days. After a restless night for me, we hiked the Shadbush trail.. Two miles long. Hilly terrain. And utterly exhausting.
God has given me a love for people and a passion to write. I love that the sky shows the creativity of our loving Maker, don't you? I hope you will join me on this journey through life exploring the beautiful creation God has made and the lessons that He is teaching me through it all.
