Oh, the places…


behind the door

This morning i received an unexpected text message. The number i didn’t recognize but i did see there were more than 10 numbers…the usual for a United States mobile. It was from a friend of mine in Australia! you can imagine how excited i was to hear from a friend so far away! He asked me ‘What’s on the other side of the door that was opened for you?’. what a question, eh? It got me thinking…have doors been opened already? my response: well, it seems as though children were behind the door. i’m a nanny now (for a lovely family with 2 precious boys). And beginnings of a young adults ministry. We’ll see what else.” I’m also going to be teaching/assisting in an English as Second Language course. Reaching the nations…

It’s nothing spectacular; most of these are practical—a job, ministry, teaching—but blessings indeed! I shouldn’t underestimate the power of small beginnings. Oh! the anticipation…-c



crickets, chimes, cookies & tea

these are a few of my favorite things…

i’m sitting on the balcony of our 3rd level apartment, a place me and my loving parents call home. this is a place of serenity, especially now at 11:29 pm. these southern nights are hot. but we’ve got stars..the crickets are saying to me sleep but my mind is wired crazy. i’m not really sure the thoughts racing in my head but there is hope of them making sense. they will…clarity is in reach. the chimes will ring in rhyme. i’m on a path to discovery; and it is a good one. the wind and bend  make for exciting days. they aren’t there to throw me on my face, although that is a great place to start.

i don’t want to waste these days wishing myself somewhere else…we’ll get through this. it’s just another transition and another hall in which to wait. -c
