At the beginning of 2015, I wrote down these words for the first entry in my journal : ‘I don’t really want more time; I just want enough time. Time to breathe deep and time to see real and time to laugh long, time to give God Glory and rest deep and sing joy….I just want time to do my one life well.’ Ann Voskamp shared those words and when I read them at the end of 2014 I knew I wanted to hold them close to my heart as I began 2015. It’s no secret that this year has been life changing for me. A hard, but beautiful story all covered by the Grace of God and His promises. A story I hope to be able to share one day. I’ve always said “I am going to write a book one day!!”…maybe that is the story God wants me to tell.
As this year is coming to a close I’ve thought a lot about the work I’ve done and what it all means. Does it all mean something? Am I still capturing laughter and life, all because of love? Am I still capturing YOUR story? I think so. I truly want to believe that this year in all it’s twists and turns has been a defining year in my work, who I am, and where I hope to be in the years to come. And, what’s to come? I have no idea. I am just so grateful to be right where I am today knowing with my whole heart Who I walk this journey for. Whether this journey keeps me doing what I’ve been doing the past 5 years or if it takes me deeper. I am ready.
2015 was a year to remember. So, with my whole heart to all of you who have let me capture YOUR life in 2015, THANK YOU. May the New Year bring you peace and joy. I love y’all for being on this journey with me.
