No, I have not fallen off the face of the earth…
nor have the kids over powered me and locked me in the closet (although there have been times that they have been close!).
And, no, I am not mourning the death of my crock pot – but I did loose an amazingly well seasoned (like been with me for 9 years) stoneware bar pan…stoneware and hardwood floors don’t mix in case you’re wondering!
And, unfortunately I have not been sequestered in my space creating up a storm!
What I have been doing is leaving the free world of blogging and moving to a self hosted site and installing all kinds of new themes and widgets! (If this sounds like greek to you, don’t worry, I am not going to bore you with the details, and if you understand what I am talking about, then you probably also understand the occasional growls and snarls I issued towards my computer and the tears of frustration and joy that fell from my eyes!
It’s a new day here at Eat.Craft.Run. As 2016 comes to a close (yep, can’t be in denial about that any longer – three weeks until Christmas and four weeks until a new year…eep!), I am looking ahead to what God holds for me and my family… we know we will have a move and possibly have a kiddo moving out (this whole growing up and going to college thing is really rough on this momma’s heart). But through it all, He is faithful, and I am enough (yep, still focusing on my one little word for the year… and looking ahead to next years word too!). God has placed some amazing people in my life on this nomadic journey I have been on, and each of them have kept a piece of me with them… but the cool part about the fact that they took a piece, well they left a piece of themselves with me in return! And these cheerleaders that I have picked up along the way… well, many of them are behind the new look here, and behind the one little word for next year, and behind the notes and sketches that I have scattered around the house. So, I guess what I am trying to say is thanks for sticking around as I worked on being still and listening and while I
stepped out leaped off the cliff in faith… hopefully the new look, the next word, and the cheers I have been hearing from God will serve to bless you as much as they have blessed me!
Oh, and that picture above…it’s one of mine. I am lucky enough to have scored the desk space right by the back window that looks out on to the lake, so when what I really want to do is bash my head on the desk because widgets confuse me, instead I look outside… and when views like this great me, I know that it is God reminding me to slow down and rest in Him, so I have gotten in the habit of leaving my camera in arms reach and taking a self imposed (or maybe God imposed) time out and trying to capture the beauty He has blessed me with!
