Lately 5.20.14

Lately I have pulled out spring clothes, and put them away.  Then brought them out again.

I've taken a fair share of walks with my dog, and admired plenty of blooms.

I've seen snowy and warm days.

I've been painting and drawing more (and actually feeling good about it).

I've still been encountering old stories, and am more fascinated each day.

I have been waiting to meet my nephew, Gunnar. :)

I've also been struggling a bit, though I know that's normal.

The days I feel the most antagonized and spiritually attacked seem to also hold the most potential for good, if I can just keep my eyes open and move forward.

That's what I'm attempting to do currently.  I woke up yesterday morning in a black mood and literally found myself on my knees in prayer.  I'm the type of person that once emotional turbulence hits, it must be dealt with and sorted out immediately-- that's not been possible recently (as it's completely in the hands of time).  I know God has a plan, but in the past week I've definitely had moments of being overwhelmed with hurt and anger.

Thankfully, I am surrounded by family and friends who love me and encourage me in times such as this.  And I know it will pass.


  1. lady, you are so cool. i admire you pictures and feel that i connect very deeply with the things that you have written here.
    for some reason, its hard for me to get through spring. there are often intense periods of restlessness. dark moods and discontentment. but i love what you wrote here and thank you very much.

    1. Thanks Abigail, I do think we have more than a bit in common in regards to the way we feel about things. :) The good thing about spring is that it leads to summer!

  2. Praying for you honey! I know what that feels like.Feeling blue is certainly not fun. Praying for comfort from Heavenly Father and to wrap you in His sweet peace. Merry from eachlittlebird.blogspot.com

    1. Thanks Merry, He has comforted me indeed and shown me open windows in the face of this closed door (your prayers are much appreciated)! :) God is good, even when our hearts are heavy.

  3. Your 'dearest mom' creation is fantastic! The flowers look really nice. I've nominated you for a Liebster blogger award! You can see my blog for more info.
