We have some big news in our home!!
We are selling our home and MOVING.
We are selling our home, downsizing to a smaller home, and choosing to rent instead of own. And we are SO EXCITED!
Why? Well, many many reasons, here are a few....
I have a friend that always uses the word 'intentional' to describe me. I used to carry that title around with a big fat slab of pride. I used to think I was the most intentional person I knew. Until last year.
While I know my heart's desire was to live intentionally and purposefully in all that I did, I now realize my intentions weren't much beyond plans. Without action, intentions simply remain sitting before us taking shape as a desire, a plan, a hope, a focus, a dream.
I've learned a lot about myself in the last year. I've learned that I'm not really as intentional as I thought I was. I've learned that my intentions are good, and I'm exceptional at planning out an intentional day or an intentional activity... but I've also learned that one can't claim to be intentional unless the discipline is there to match. I've learned that it is through our actions that intentional living is truly displayed. Planning isn't living. Action is what births living. Intentional plans in conjunction with actions are what make an intentional life impactful. And I don't know about you, but I long for my life to be one that impacts this world for Him.
Hi, friend. Welcome. I'm so glad you're here.
It feels good to be back here. It feels good to be sharing my words with you again. It has been three years since I felt the Lord urging me to hide my site and privatize my words. In many ways it has been a quiet season, a private season, and in other ways, it's been a very vulnerable season. There is no denying it has been a shaping season, one full of growth in so many ways. But above all, it has been a beautiful season. Truly. One for the books.
For the last six months I've wrestled with my Lord regarding His gentle nudge to share my words with you again. I've asked Him for months if this was from Him, or from my own heart. And a few weeks ago He finally answered: It's from both.
