Sometimes God closes doors and opens windows. And even though it brings you to your knees, requiring you to crawl to get through it, you come out on the other side better. Stronger. More grateful because of the journey it took to get there. (Wandering print available in the shop)
If I am remembered for nothing else, let it be for words, and for love. And for the way the two could be intertwined to represent the greatest of things that life has to give. Photo from the Wander collection, available now in the shop.
Inevitably, we all find ourselves here at some point. And we are given the choice. To stand beneath the wall, to turn back, to remain complacent. Or, we can choose to climb. Although it may come with the pains of growth, we can choose to continue And on the other side, we flourish. (Still No. 4, The Labyrinth, currently for sale in the print shop)
A personal post to our son on our first Mother's Day is on the blog today, as well as a hopeful prayer to the women in waiting. My heart waits with yours, regardless of this season. 💕
Do you ever feel like you're battling two sides of yourself? Maybe you want growth, but simultaneously rest. Maybe you want to pursue your career fervently, but simultaneously be committed to your family. What I've noticed recently, in my own heart and life, is a struggle with worth and purpose. Where am I finding the guidance to determine my purpose? Is it in quiet time with The Lord or in social media binges? When we begin to see our worth not in what we accomplish, but who we serve, our purpose changes. More thoughts on the Still Wandering journal this afternoon. 💕
