isn’t it all a little blurry sometimes?  out of focus.  not quite clear.  and yet, beauty is still there to behold. line

flowers focused_la la lovely

clear.  crisp.  vibrant.  beauty.  the same.  as it ever was.  only now seen.line

its been a week of a few things coming into focus and finding  peace in acceptance.  some of that is accepting myself.  i seem to be finding myself during a time when i’ve felt quite lost.  in a way, i feel like i’m kind of piecing a life puzzle together.  i’m learning more about my strengths (i just took this amazing strengths finder test and my dear friend is going to coach me in this process – i’ll share more on that later this summer) and also my weaknesses.  getting to really know yourself . . .  how you work, what makes you tick and what makes you happy and what makes you cry is enlightening and sometimes a bit frightening.  but i feel like it’s so important and valuable.  have you been on this type of personal journey?  yet?

on a lighter note, i’ve been crazy crazy busy trying to get everything in order as we are road tripping it to the south on saturday to visit family.  everyone is excited and i’m just praying i make it through the 12 hour car ride.

    It’s not always easy to recognize one’s weaknesses-like the idea of a test! I will be thinking of you on that road trip this weekend as we head out on our first road trip with the new baby (gulp) to Colorado! Hoping he develops a new love of his car seat! Hah!

    Yes, I am now on that journey. Some journeys are painful, the shoes one wears for certain spiritual roads are Not always comfortable and hurt but, I have found that as the rains washes and refreshes the city side-walks, so my tears…as hard as it has been, has clleansed,, refreshed, painted new my soul, my heart, my mind. I am softer, more understanding of the needs of others and, more grateful for beauty that is gentle and inspiring. “As I passed by again, I saw that the time had come for you to fall in Love. I covered your naked body with my coat and promised to Love you. Yes, I made a marriage covenant with you, and you became mine”. (the words of our sovereign Lord: Ezekiel 16:8)

    Thank you for the beauty, time, love you put into this blog. It always makes me happy.
