Stepping Back In


My heart has been so divided lately, wondering if maintaining this blog (however sporadically) is a worthwhile use of my incredibly limited time. These days, I hardly have a moment to sit -- much less to sit and tap out thoughts in coherent sentences. And yet, my heart still longs to share here. So here we are, perhaps in a more limited capacity, but here nonetheless.

I’ve also given this blog a new title. “Make Something Beautiful” is one of my most favorite songs, and I’ve borrowed its title for this little place as that is my daily - no, hourly - prayer as I walk through this humble, messy life: that God would make something beautiful (and He does!) out of my ugly heart.

Tentatively, carefully, I’m stepping back in, praying that this serves as a precious record and testament of the ways that He is making all things beautiful and new.

no matter what it's called...i am grateful to have a way to keep up when we don't get to see eachother. you often inspire me and i'm sure i'm not the only one. you never know what will be harvested from the seeds that you sow...even "sporadically"...

i love you.

Sarah, I am so glad that you are continuing to share through your blog! It is always a blessing and encouragement to see how God is working through you and your family, and selfishly, it's one of the few ways I get to keep in contact with you! I love to see your girls, hear about your struggles and triumphs, and mostly just peek into the life of my friend from afar :D Welcome back!

I too love to read your blog :) You have an amazing gift of using words to perfectly describe life with youngsters running around. I also LOVE that song which is your blog title. I often meditate on the lyrics.

Kel told me today that you had a new post...so I hopped over to take a peek. Love the new look, title, and you! Must wear those sparkles as we cross the "grates" of life...speck so. Precious picture! Miss and love you. Hugs and Kisses to all from those of us "lounging" at the resort! :D
