{twenty seven}

Life has felt so vivid and real lately. Maybe it's having three different birthday celebrations spread over one week, or perhaps it's the recent progress and clarity of vision I've experienced in the last couple of weeks.  Things are moving, sliding into place, and it is good. God, you are always so, so good.

When I use the words above to describe my recent life, I do not mean easy or simple or obvious.  I mean full of energy, action and life, which often means things are even more uncertain or risky. I've realized that's almost required for success and fullness of life, to step out in the line of fire.

I've been doing a good deal of that recently, so on Wednesday when I turned 27, I took to one of my favorite forested spots for a reminder of God's bigness-- that when I step into the line of fire, it's in his arms and not on my own merit (thank goodness).  Is there really anything like nature to put the size of our Creator into perspective?

  1. Happiest birthday to you, first of all. Second, you're such a lovely lovely lady and I can't believe you're 27??? I thought you were younger, but this makes it so much more inspiring I hope I'll be this alive in almost ten years.

    1. Thank you, and haha! Funny enough, I get that pretty frequently-- at least the older I get, the more okay I am with it!

      Oh, you will be SO alive dear girl, life just gets better (and you are already so lively). :)

  2. I absolutely love your outfit and all of its neutral tones! So pretty! Oh, and happy belated birthday!

    1. Thanks Joanna, on both counts! -^_^-

  3. So beautiful :) So blessed to be your sister in Christ! Blessings :)
