And, We're Live!

While the sun sets in one corner of the world, it's rising again in another.  Looking forward to the many adventures of a new blog space. :)

A WIP for sure, but I hope you'll stop in and look around!

Do I Hear an Old Man Snoring...Again?

“When you see someone putting on his Big Boots, you can be pretty sure that an Adventure is going to happen.” ~ A. A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh

Look familiar?  On a rainy day in June nearly seven years ago, a younger and rather different me created this little space.  Seven years is a short time I suppose, but it's long enough that it's high time for a change.

So what better time to start something new than with the first post of the new year (yes, I do realize February is not the first month, nor is the 22nd the first day) when resolutions are in full swing?  Supposed to be, anyway. ;)  

My new space is currently "under construction," but as soon as things are operational---as in, I actually figure out how to post---I'll share the link here.

Stay tuned!

"The midsummer sun shines but dim, the fields strive in vain to look gay; but when I am happy in Him December's as pleasant as May." ~ John Newton

Wednesday Wisdom No. 29

slipping through your fingers

"Excellence requires caring about someone or something enough to invest time, effort, and skill into it, with God's glory and our neighbor's good as the goal.  Biblically defined, true excellence has others in mind―first God, and then our neighbor.  'So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God' (1 Cor. 10:31).  Eating and drinking are fairly common aspects of daily life, and yet even ordinary meals become significant when they draw our attention once again to glorifying and enjoying the God who provides them.” 
~ Michael Horton, Ordinary: Sustainable Faith in a Radical, Restless World

Wednesday Wisdom No. 28

"Do you feel alone today?  Are there ways in which you feel alienated and unloved?  Do you feel misrepresented or misunderstood?  Do you feel passed by and taken for granted?  Do you feel broken and in need of repair?  Do you struggle to find reasons to continue?  Do you wonder if it’s worth it?  Does it seem that there’s no one to share your heart with?  Do you sometimes wonder whether anyone cares?  When the waves of loneliness and discouragement roll over you, where do you run, where do you hide? ...Yes, life can be very hard, people can be very cruel, and there are times when you are left alone, but you are never completely alone because your Father is with you in tender restorative love." ~ Paul Tripp, New Morning Mercies
