Hello. It’s me. I’ve been gone for a long while, I know.
Earlier this year, I posted about some big life changes – my father was divorcing my mom.
It’s been a long, rough road since then.
PageTurners fell to the wayside as a non-essential. I have had so much on my plate – both in the emotional and physical realms – that I had nothing more to give. Neither words nor the desire to write them. I had run out, felt empty and hollowed out inside.
Everything in my life was so intense that I couldn’t even engage with this writing world – a world that makes me feel truly alive. I COULDN’T EVEN READ BOOKS! I had no mental or emotional energy. Everything felt hard and dark, like everything was just wading through the fear, hurt, sadness, anger, and pain. It’s felt like that to some extent or another for a VERY long time.
A part of me – a beautiful, wonderful, glorious part of me – has been asleep, not gone, but in a deep hibernation.
But I’m tired of it. I’m waking up. And I am so, so, SO glad!
I am ready to live again – and truly, live in way I’ve never lived before.
I’m ready to live…..
I’m ready to live touching lives around me, to have my God’s purpose and plan be mine. To grow in every way in my life, to bloom into who I was created to be. And PageTurners is part of that.
Yes, I know there are going to be further trials in my life, I’m not thinking that I’ve overcome it all, or that I’ve gotten this figured out, ’cause I haven’t. There’s gonna be awfully hard times ahead, I know that, because that’s how live is.
But that is okay, because, I have hope for my future. I have a wonderful, beautiful, amazing family. An incredible new church. And a brilliant future in both writing and life ahead of me.
Hello. It’s me.
I’ve been gone for a long while. But I’m back again, and by God’s beautiful grace, even better than before.
My life isn’t perfect, but it’s mine. It’sthe life that God gave me, one that was almost stolen from me before I was even born. It often feels like a big mess, yet the truth is, my life is a beautiful masterpiece. I’m just having parts of the picture revealed little by little.
I’m glad to be back, and to be me, the me I have always been destined to be.
Life is beautiful gift, one I don’t want to waste. God has beautiful things ahead for me and for you. It’s time to take up everything He has to offer and live the abundant, beautiful life He has for us.
