10,000 Hits.

Wow! You guys it's crazy to believe the blog is at 10,000 hits! But it's even crazier to believe what has happened in my life and the lives of those around me in the time I've been blogging. The posts you find here are a mix from at least 3 of my different blogs throughout the years... so there's lots to journey through.

Looking back at the last 4+ years of blogging I've done has been like reading a well-worn journal or perhaps going through a box of old letters and notes. I've been reminded of all that God has done in my life since the beginning of my sophomore year of college.

He has used Narnia more than once [here and here] to teach me more about himself.
He has allowed me to look back in order to look ahead.
He has been patient in His communications with me.
He has taught me about contentment, AGAIN. :)
He has shown me what's important.
He has been teaching me about brokenness. [Mine and others']

God has done SO much! And that's just a glimpse! There's plenty more to read if that all doesn't convince you! :) And I have just been along for the ride. The beautiful, unexpected, hard, but oh-so-worth-it ride!

My life is nothing like I planned and far more than I dreamed.

Let me leave you with this whimsical quote.
"There is only one invitation it would kill me to refuse, yet I'm tempted to turn it down all the time. I get the invitation every morning when I wake up to actually live a life of complete engagement, a life of whimsy, a life of love does. It doesn't come in an envelope. It's ushered in by a sunrise, the sound of a bird, or the smell of coffee drifting lazily from the kitchen. It's the invitation to actually live, to fully participate in this amazing life for one more day... I think every day God sends us an invitation to live and sometimes we forget to show up or get head-faked into thinking we haven't really been invited. But you see, we have been invited -- every day, all over again."
-Bob Goff, Love Does


  1. I love that quote. Could you make a neat poster for me with some cool font so that I can hang it on my bathroom mirror? Or, I could just print it out in Times New Roman...

  2. You may have hit 10,000, but let's be real, half of those are mine. jk, but really, I love reading how God is changing your life. Love to my beautiful, courageous sister!

    1. I would be so down with that... if it were TRUE! :) I mean I know you love me but I didn't think it was quite at stalker status. Yet.

  3. So amazing to see how Jesus is working in you and through you for the benefit of others. You are a treasure!
