 Hello my lovelies,

If anyone is actually even still following along with this space. I've missed this blogging thing at times, at a lot of others, I haven't. Life has been such a journey in recent years and it culminated in my being unable to feel enthusiastic for blogging. And I don't know that's really changed. But today I felt inspired. And hopeful. So here I am. For the moment. 

My book reading habits have severely changed the past few years. Grief of losing both my mom and dad in the last 6 years, living overseas for 8 months, and processing through where God is leading and guiding...My life looks a lot different than when I first started this blog how many, many years ago! I'm still writing/journaling though. Still writing some poetry. So many this'll show up occasionally here, maybe not. I don't really know.

I guess this is all just to say hello. I hope anyone who ever followed along here enjoyed their time. I have been SO grateful for the friends I found through this adventure! I hope you're doing well, at least mostly. :) I hope life is giving you small moments and pockets of joy alongside all the crazy chaos that seems to happen a lot. And I hope beauty and wonder give you glimpses of hope!

til next time (I hope)

:: seeing ::

Sometimes a moment
a sparkle of light
a colorful window of joy
is all it takes to spark a whisper of delight inside my soul.
I smile as the sunshine breathes 
Happy and Welcome!
My brain is full of information...
the darkness and sadness of the world tugs at my heartstrings
the broken and weeping world just outside this door...
But also?
Just outside this door
this window
there is Wonder
and Awe
in the tiniest blooms of pink and purple
I see the imagination of my Father there...
I look across the street and...
there's a yellow door almost hidden in the bushes on either side
a blue house
a yellow door
the green of the bushes
the pink and purple blooms
Then I catch the barest glimpse of a father carrying his son
they slip down the alleyway just down from "my" door
a split second of time I see them
but just that merest moment...
breathes renewal to my eyes
There is such evil, yes
such awful, heartbrokenness
things on HE can handle and fix
and yet...
and yet...
and yet...
slowly He opens my eyes
to witness
to glory in
to breathe hope in my soul
there is yet Truth
and Beauty
and Joy
in the tiniest
quickest of moments
Never discount
the power of Beauty
of Home
of Wonder 
to breathe HIS glory
to prove HIS existence
even in moments I don't understand
HE is still and always
moving, working, changing, renewing
This world is singing His praise
and when He opens my eyes to See...
so am I
