Care to join me ?

5 Jul

I am a hopeless romantic. I live in other worlds, in other dimensions along a parallel of other lives. I read my way to the edge of this continuum in the quiet of my room, and travel into a mystic labyrinth through the words that fill my eyes.

I have hundreds of books that occupy many rooms in my house. Books that are filled with people I’ve come to know – who have shown me places I’ve only imagined.

Together we travel on horseback; in carriages; in flying machines; on the backs of Dragons. Together our wings carry us through clouds along the rim of the wind. I live in the future; I live in the past.

When I read, the characters come off the pages and sit next to me. Characters who get just as excited as I do when I pull the cowl over my eyes to camouflage my presence. Characters who talk sotto-voce as they watch me nock my arrow then flawlessly send it soaring to its mark.

When night falls and the house is quiet, I climb the stairs to my room and close the door on this space. I pick up the book that waits patiently on my bedside table, and I gladly step off the edge.

The Whisper of God

Years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day-to-day activities, children, family, and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed our extraordinary God in my everyday ordinary life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. Opening up the Bible daily drew me into His will and wonderful ways. He was no longer a friend of a friend, but my personal friend. I began to hear God whisper His desires and lessons for me. Now, my goal is to encourage women to stop and listen for His whisper in their lives by sharing what God has taught me through my Bible Studies and devotionals.
