Life is still revolving here, just as much as I suspect it is where you are at present. I find myself centering myself more and more these days around my table with my family, actively pursuing hospitality, which doesn't require me to write about and trying to keep my family (and chickens) warm & fed.
I've been listening to Slugs & Bugs Christmas album on repeat. I like to think it's just for my kids; but, let's not tell them how cool I think it is lest they lose interest. I haven't found much comfort in cooking lately, which I'm trying to redeem, to fight for; but, tastes aren't quite as vibrant these past couple months.
I'm praying Psalm 51 over my heart. One to be contrite and see how when confronted with my stuff, I run to my gracious Savior to make me new.
I'm relishing in vivid pictures of our family taken by our friend Matt. My favorites are the out takes. I love capturing the real parts of life more than a staged front.
I'm preparing my heart and mind for a workshop I will lead in the Spring at Faith & Culture Writers Conference (come if you are a creative and in the Portland area). More about that later.
in all that my family has gone through, I have been impressed with my need and desire to live a life of prayer. One saturated in this state. I would love to pray for you. How can I pray for you?
PS since I wrote this on my phone I have no links for you to see more information on Slugs & Bugs or Faith & Culture Writers Conference. Sorry.
