I had a dream that I posted a blog with all sorts of bullet points and prayers. I don’t remember what they were but it reminded me of this little space that I’ve left dormant while I’ve been off living out adventures that haven’t been put onto paper. I keep waiting for time to slow but I know better than that. So, I figured, I’d take a minute or two to say hi.
Lately, I’ve been perusing pinterest and there’s a board that I’ve deemed “to fill my home with all things happy and beautiful.” This little one has accumulated almost the most pins out of my boards–quoateable beats it by a bit. But as I think about those fun ladies over at Squee who wrote a whole eBook on figuring out your what pinterest says about you…and no, I haven’t yet gone through it all! On my list and sitting open in my browser! But I can’t help but be struck by how that’s so long been a core value and a priority and a longing and a desire and just part of my heart. As I’ve said before, “I just want a home…is that too much to ask for?” Now, I don’t mean a literal building, though that’d be nice, but it runs far deeper than that. Home is all things safe and cozy and protected and loved and accepted and beautiful and happy. In many ways, there’s that understated longing for heaven that we all have which plays into this; yet, too, I am ever thankful to God for the places and people in my here and now that I call home.
On that note, I think I’ll get back to all the other things I should be doing….graduate classes did start yesterday..ep!
p.s. what is one of your favorite pinterest boards?
