Can we all agree that the past couple of years have been unusual, to say the very least?
These past two years have been strange for me in that I haven’t been writing personally. Yes, I’ve collaborated on a few projects with others and I’ve done a bit of contract writing on the side, but writing from my soul has only taken place in the quiet pages of a personal journal. These years have been full of moments to digest slowly.
While the world has been in a sense of ongoing shaking, our family has also faced multiple losses of loved ones as well as a failed adoptive placement. We’ve talked richly and deeply with those in our close circle, but so much about these past two years has felt too near to share publicly. A smaller, deeper time of life for us.
Especially when the world gets louder with opinions and half-baked ideas, I find myself pulled into a quieter place to think more fully before I speak. Rarely do I regret pausing to consider my words a little more before I speak them; but often do I regret those words spoken in haste with too-little context behind my suppositions.
And yet, I feel drawn back to this space of sharing thoughts and, above all else, finding God in the everyday moments of life. It seems appropriate to re-enter this space on the tenth anniversary of the Now Found Blog.
I look forward to sharing this month of the other milestones I’m marking as well as some more processed and still-in-process thoughts of how we navigate this world in which we find ourselves.
So, I welcome you back and I invite you to dig in deeper with me to these moments where God is present – though we may or may not sense it. He welcomes us always to keep seeking with the promise that He will be found.
