Goodnight Sunday

I hope your weekend was wonderful. 

It was a wedding weekend in pastor world. And a preaching Sunday. 

This afternoon I got to share lunch with three of my favorite people. I also got to meet the new puppy of some dear pals. 

There were a lot of high points in the weekend. But some tough moments, too. I suppose that's the nature of things....life is often a combination of good and bad. Joyful and tearful. I mostly write about happy things here in blog world. 

However, I hope I do still convey from time to time that my life is certainly made up of more than rainbows and nature photos and vegetable recipes. Most deeply personal aspects of my life don't make it onto the docket for blog posts. And they probably won't. 

But I do hope that you know I am human. And I am not perfect. And I am not smiling every moment. Sometimes I cry. Sometimes I get angry. Sometimes when particularly challenging issues arise, I sit outside on my blanket and imagine I have a super power that allows me to fix the things of which I have no actual control. 

There are so many aspects of my life...these 30 years...that are so filled with joy. But there are other parts that are just as real, but not so great. We all have both. Maybe someday I will be the kind of writer that can compose words that accurately represent both ends of the spectrum. I am not that kind of writer yet. Thanks for sticking with me in the meantime. 

Thank you for reading this blog. 

Really. Thank you. 

So in conclusion to this post without a point....Sometimes life throws curves. Sometimes it's hard to know what to do. Sometimes all we can do is cry/scream/pray on the bathroom floor, begging for the help of a God we find confusing.

But even with all that, we're never alone. 

There is a giant orb of human beings who are here, too. 

And a Creator. A mysterious, compelling, perplexing, beautiful, forever-present font of Love.

  1. Thanks for affirming you are human. My motto is to always look for the good, the possibilities and opportunities ..... even when events seem sad. We are so fortunate to have a strong and knowledgeable guide for our pathways in life as you have mentioned. Always there, always right, even though confusing sometimes based on our own human frailties, personal wants, understanding. When in college, naïve to ways of the world, living day to day not knowing when Uncle Sam would call up my draft number for Vietnam war, I could really relate to Ecclesiastes (3:1), and the song "Turn Turn Turn" written by Pete Seeger, sung by the Byrds in 1965 .... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_zXhD3vZ_g Hang in there, Em. You are doing a super job!
