I'm baaaa-aaack. I think.
The thing about silence is that it makes words form inside your head. I like that feeling. Lots.
I remember a few years ago when our pastor preached a series on disciplines of the christian life. He spent a long time on silence. Living a life devoid of solitude leaves little room for God because it's in the spaces He speaks. I decided that Sunday morning I would intentionally sow solitude into my life lengthening the spaces between and inviting God to speak. The silences are good because I am reminded of the sound of God's voice, the treasure of being called and I can once again see the bridges over the canyons in my life.
This particular period has been lengthy here in bloggyland but the good news is I have things rattling around to share with you and I am yearning to feel the keys beneath my fingertips once again. Thanks for your understanding.
I have pictures, pictures, pictures to share because our family has been so busy. Our Halloween was filled with friends and freedom and we just had an early Thanksgiving gathering this weekend.
I celebrated another "first" wearing the hat of cancer survivor. My sweet husband just gave me an early birthday present with you in mind.
And I can't wait to share all of it here.
