Baby Steps

marriage


I put things in boxes,
segregating my life
in tiny boxes.

God, Husband, Family, Friends, School, House, Writing, etc. I used to do this with journals, one journal for notes at church, one for prayers, one for daily ramblings, one for poetry,

yet aren't they all a part of my daily walk?

Aren't they all threads in the quilt of my story.

I am obsessed with keeping it all separate.
This is why I have two other blogs:


Just like weight tends to creep up on you slowly so does sin.

I woke up one morning and realized that...

I'm not the wife he married,

Im not the mother that these three blessings were gifted to.

I had given my time and efforts to another... the world.

And I continue to box up my life.
To sweep the grit and dirt under the carpet,
boxes stuffed full and taped shut.

Last year I decided to put all my journaling in one volume, the notes taken, the ramblings and the quiet mutterings from my heart cries to Father.

I'm making baby steps.

Baby steps towards new friendships, baby steps in becoming true faced, baby steps in climbing out of sin patterns, baby steps ignoring the lies that creep into my mind, baby steps towards learning what wife means.

So... I am taking yet another baby step and combining the cottage blog to this one for they both tell of our stories, our life,

our mess.

  2. Good post. I have to say that it has been interesting watching you the past 12 years (how time flies) and knowing that you were shutting me out from the real you so many times and then last week when we got together- just how real and honest you were. I came home and told Rich- "Finally. I think she might be ready to be who she REALLY is." We have prayed for your family for so many years- every step of your journey and have been with you through all the good and all the bad even if you didn't know we were there. LOVE YOU!!!!

  3. Love that picture! And love your honesty:)) You speak for so many of us, especially me:)) Why are we not content with who God made us? Are we still trying to please man, or God?? Keep fighting the good fight sister!

  4. My friend, I too am taking baby steps... I've been writing about my journey into living TRUEFACED as well. I actually got to attend the Truefaced Intensive in Tulsa, OK. It was amazing!

    Over a year ago I realized that I really didn't know what grace was. I'm taking baby steps into it now. I'm trusting God to put all the puzzle pieces together.

    Loved my visit here today! So excited about your new journey...
