So I’ve been sick.

First and most importantly Jonathan and I give thanks to God our Father who is clearly guiding this unexpected path in our life.

Mountainside Reliance

          I haven’t posted in nearly a month for many reasons. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I mentally fall into a ditch, and then I walk in that ditch for a while and I meet a bunch of interesting ditch dwellers who all encourage and inspire me to climb back out. About a month ago my brain fell into a writing ditch. We were in the process of buying a house, my job was wearing me down, and what little spare time I had was much needed relaxation time with my husband. I occasionally would pull up my blog, stare at the main page for a minute and then close the computer. I simply didn’t have anything to say.

          I don’t know if what I’m writing today is the right thing to say, but I know it has helped me climb back out of the ditch. So maybe it will help someone else out there. Whether you’re stuck in a ditch or climbing a mountain, God wants to be next to you.
