It's been a crazy busy stressful couple of weeks. I'm sitting in the backyard of my sister's house, taking the long road home from ‪#‎Declare2015‬ .
I'm trying to process all God exposed me to at the conference, and trying to apply it to everything God is teaching me in this season. It's not always easy, and there's a lot of distractions here.
The sky is just too lovely here, the sunset a bit too beautiful. The geese honked just too loudly as they flew over and glided to rest on the lake.
The cicadas are humming in a competition with the chirping crickets. They are determined to drown out the buzzing of the last few hummingbirds that whiz by my head.
The pinks and purples on the horizon are fading now, and a deep blue hue is creeping from above, pushing them deeper into the hills.
I doubt I'll be debriefed from my conference when I get up from this place, or when I drive down the road tomorrow morning. It's ok. I'm grateful for family that share their view, and so thankful that God saw fit to give me such fine distractions.
He always knows JUST what is needed!

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
