Unapologetically, it's been a while since I've been active here... Or anywhere else online.
There's been a major shift in my focus from driven and running, creating and surviving... To inner healing... Slowing down. And really being intentional about where my energy is being poured out.
The last decade has been one for the books for my family to be certain. And while the time has been so very productive and fruitful in growing our faith and strengthening our resolve... I'd be lying through my teeth if I said I'd want to repeat it. I don't. I desperately want to learn that which I'm supposed to learn... and move into a more comfortable season. I don't necessarily mean physical comfort... Although I'd embrace that. But I'm meaning more along the lines of rest... peace from anxiety... hope.
Lately, I've been feeling the unction to write again... To share again... To open up again. But this time... I have no desire to create a "following". I'll make one post on my social media pages for those who genuinely are interested... and then I'll just... Be. I've learned that those who are in... Are in. And those who are not... Simply aren't. And that's fine. It's actually totally healthy... To allow people to live without begging them to follow, or comment or like...
And it's okay to share in a more private platform than the "big ones". Perhaps... my writing is more personal than that... More one on one. This is more of journal I'd dare say. I've got so many things bouncing around in my head, that I just need a place to create... Words. And this is it.
I tried to blog here before... But then, it was with purpose... To learn and grow my website... To get a larger audience for my art. Ect.... and so on....
In the quiet years... My purpose has changed. I've watched the hand of the Lord provide in spite of my misunderstandings... my weariness. My clunky attempts to provide on my own.
I don't need to search down people who appreciate my art or value my words... I just need to ... create. And write.
So.... with the purpose of glorifying the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob alone.... I'm beginning here... To write... To create... To share... In my own way... On my own page... Out of the spotlight... And with a TON more peace.
If you've stumbled over here.... Welcome. And may you leave better than when you came. I'm so glad you're visiting.
