A Head Start - Welcome Back!

WHEW! I wasn't very good at staying offline this month! Let's just say that too much fun stuff went on, too many grandkids were around (and are fixin' to be back next week!), and not having internet for so long made it hard to stay away from it! My Facebook page has several posts on it, and a few of them I'll share here this week. Thank you for hanging in there with me (trying to be) offline.

There's been some fun and unexpected and fun things going on in my life. Nothing life-changing, but still signs of life, and that's always good. Even when it hurts, it's a great reminder that I don't walk alone and that God is with me (and YOU!) in the midst of it all; the good, bad, boring, desperate and desolate. Everything has a season.

As I prepare to return to online life, I'm excited to give you a little sneak peak of a few changes, a fresh blog design that will work better with photographs in the future, a few returning features for the future (like book and product reviews and give-aways!), a few new things (like recipes!), and of course, shared words and pictures.

Blogging, for me, has never been about the numbers, it's been about the ONE. I often write as if God is the only one who reads my blog, and if He allows ONE other person to read it, I'm blessed. So, that being said, I'm so grateful to know that you're here with me through all these changes. All the moves, career and job changes, seasons of the year and seasons in life. Thank you. I pray that my words and pictures will encourage you as we move forward from here...

Grace and peace,

Merry Christmas

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. 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
