radio silence




Sorry to be so absent, I am still here! The truth is, I am still trying to figure out how to fit everything into this amazing life I am leading. My life is a jar that seems one size too small. I have so much to do, so much I would love to do and be and my jar is that bit too small.

Work is huge (so grateful) and my children are small amazing beings that need me. Between the two and wanting to be the best I can for Dida, there's not a lot of room left in my jar. These three big beautiful stones fill my jar. They deserve the best and the most of me and so they get it.

So with the rest of my limited time I try to keep up with two blogs, see family and friends and maintain a house. Well, the house does not actually get maintained by me and the cooking? Hmmm, that's make do at the best of times.

And I have a longing in me for more of Him. I was so inspired by this on Sunday during prayer meeting. He can and will give me strength to live in a space of joy and thankfulness. For what He's given me is both bright and beautiful.

We pray that you'll have the strength to stick it out over the long haul—not the grim strength of gritting your teeth but the glory-strength God gives. It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over into joy, thanking the Father who makes us strong enough to take part in everything bright and beautiful that he has for us. Colossians 1: 12 (MSG)

It's always good to see you, Sammy. Family comes first, and they're only young once, right? :) Life is a constant balancing act, I can relate!
