Some goodness from around the web...


This has been my mind in recent days and weeks.  Completely fogged in, without a clear path to see where and what I am supposed to be doing.

So...I wait.  

I wait for Him to speak. 

And sometimes, he uses the strangest voices.  He uses voices that I don't expect.  

Not long ago, someone said to me that they read my blog and they know that I am conflicted with writing and what to do with this space.  This person encouraged me to just be patient.  To find the miracle in the everyday and write about it.  If I don't see a miracle that day, then don't write...but don't try to force this issue.

What wise advice.

So while I wait for more direction and for a clear path, I want to share some goodies with you from around the web.

My friend, Michelle DeRusha wrote this post on comparison at Lisa-Jo's place.  There is room for all of us in this world.  Check it out.

And Lisa-Jo wrote this for (in)Courage.  Reminding us that the internet is not the boss of us!  Be willing to be used by Him, even if we are only read and followed by one or two people.

Then, please check out my friend Jacque's new podcast series on iTunes. Jacque titled her series Mud Stories. Her guests share their mud stories and how God met them there and pulled them out of the mud and the mire.  I have enjoyed all four episodes.  Jacque has a mud story of her own and you will want to check it out.

Finally, I have some ideas swirling around in my foggy head about this space.  I firmly believe that God does not want me to abandon it and writing about the miracles I see in my everyday life is a good start.  Funny thing is, yesterday's miracle was an idea for this space that just might work.  I am praying about it and working through some challenges.  Hopefully, I'll have some answers in a few days or a week and can get some direction.

One last thing...this past weekend, John and I attended the wedding of his niece.  Another niece took this photo of us (with my camera) and I love it and wanted to share it with you.  When John saw it he said, "why didn't someone tell me to ditch that phone?!?"  Yeah, why didn't they!  Like, why didn't I say something???  Other than the phone, I love the picture of us.

 
Hugs and blessings....what have you read around the web that I should read?

  3. That is a fantastic picture of the two of you. I don't think I would have noticed the phone if you didn't point it out.
    Looking forward to reading those posts you mentioned.
    Have a great day, my friend.
