Can I just be super honest with you? I'm a momma who is crazy busy (and that’s just so rare and hard to find these days: a busy adult) just keeping everyone alive and keeping permanent markers and scissors out of toddler's hands.
I need a breather from this Heart Series on the blog.
Not because I'm too busy, not at all. I hope I'm never too busy to simply write.
I just need my soul to breathe and keep the past in the past for a little bit. Cause writing about hard times is....well, hard.
I have recently had the privilege to write for a marriage blog to tell some of the stories about how this recent season of trials affected our marriage. (Can I just stop and say that I am sorta terrified every time I have to write the words affected or effected? Which is it?! Why do I never know?!)
Here is one post about how this hard season looked in our marriage. And there is a recent post about how celebrating kept us sane.
So much has happened, especially since I wrote the celebration piece. But those lessons and the growth that came with them has lasted and I pray it always will. In my waiting and longing to reach the finish line…I’ve realized there really aren’t any. Much of our transitions have resolved, some still linger.
I’ve stopped chasing that illusive light. I’ve learned to sit and ride the train I’m on. Because really that light is an illusion. Nothing will be completely complete until Jesus comes back…Am I right?
So I hope you are encouraged by these little peeks into our marriage. I’ll be writing more of our story in the Heart Series sooner than later. But until then I’ll be writing about the here and now while I take a little break from the past.
