1/31 Days Outside the Kitchen and On the Move!

I'm trying my best to get back in the blogging routine and jumping in with the 31 series for October. Already I know I won't have internet for the first 10 days (not in the home at least... First thing we turned off when we knew we were moving!), and my life is torn between AR and KY.

So my "do what you can plan" (as friend Holley Gerth would say) is to post a photo a day. There may (or may not) be a scripture, or even a comment! You (and I!) can be pleasantly surprised each day! I'll be surprised if I can get a post up from my phone without major errors in it! :)

So... Happy October!! And welcome to my version of 31 Days of Blogging!!

This is a fig tree in the Botanical Gardens of the Ozarks. I haven't seen one in years, but remember the one we had growing in our backyard in Torrance, CA.

The shiny leaves are thick and leathery, the fruit stands out in shape, texture and color. God the Artist did His best in composition on the lowly fig tree! Celebrate with me! Pass the Fig Newtons please!

I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
