Wishing // Wishing, hoping, and praying for Spring Break! Fellow teachers, I’m sure you all understand. We’re on the downward slope towards summer, but that usually doesn’t quite pick up until after Spring Break. Above all, I’m just ready for some rest and a chance for renewal.
Craving // At the risk of sounding repetitive, I have been craving rest. Not just the kind of rest that you get when you don’t have to set a ridiculously early alarm, but the kind of rest that you can only get when you are completely rooted in life; heart full, happy, and overflowing with rejoicing and gratitude. Usually this means that I need to get out of Charlotte, for at least the weekend, so I am praying that I am able to do that this month.
Going // Stir-crazy? Just kidding. But like I said above, it’s been awhile since I’ve been able to get out of Charlotte for the weekend so I’m planning a weekend in Raleigh at some point this month. Charlotte may be my home, but there’s something about Raleigh-Durham that can refresh and steady my soul in just a matter of hours.
Wearing // Layers. Lots and lots of layers. This has been one of the most wishy-washy Winters that I can remember so I never quite know how to dress. What may begin as a chilly morning may end up being on the warmer side by the afternoon. Good times, my friends.
Learning // How to (keep) trust in God and exercise patience. I’ve been struggling with writer’s block for the past couple of weeks and it’s really been wearing on me. My prayers for much of the past few days have been for God to direct my mind and my words and much patience has been needed in the meantime. So much of the heart behind this blog has been me sharing my walk with Christ and how losing six family members in just over two years has changed my life. I think that I still have more of my story to share but as the figurative dust settles from a heart-wrenching season, I feel very much as though I am in a transitional state in many aspects of my life.
