This morning I come to you in a pre-caffeinated, box-surrounded, jammie-wearing state. But lest you think I am all ascatter, I had an actual intterupted night of sleep and time in God's Word. I can't think of anything that is better to fuel the heart, mind and soul!
I'm joining with a band of fearless writers who brave the keyboard, the clock and the unknown that lies ahead from the prompting of Lisa-Jo Baker (you can find all the details there). We throw out breadcrumbs before us as a trail to blaze instead of behind us as a way safely back. Let's see where this word adventure will take us today.
In case you are wondering about all this talk of adventure and the unknown, I'm reading Begin, the first of the Growly books by Phillip and Erin Ulrich - and LOVING. EVERY. WORD! Annie Barnett's illustrations are magical and set the stage for my imagination. You need to get this book. Okay, enough of this unsolicited advertisement.
So here we go!
It's where I'm living right now. Sure I have a new address and can't find my way sure in the dark, but there is still the old tie. There is still the running back and forth, wrapping up the fine print of the past two years in someone else's house that we tried to call home. Now we call this new place home, but it hasn't quite settled in to the bones and fallen easily off the tongue. That moment when "time to go home" comes out without thinking about a route or all that waits for you there.
In between is where we should be living every day. We are in this fallen world for but a breath that seems like half of an eternity, but it's not. It's just a short time that stretches on and on and has past in a blink of the eye. Anyone with a little knows the saying the days are long, but the years are short. It's like that.
In this middle ground is where all the work is done; the packing and unpacking of possessions, valuables, TRUTHS!
