Beautiful Messes…

I’ve been swimming in all kinds of beautiful, messy-goodness and some crazy-hardness at home. Such as life. I never want my online image to represent anything, but my real-life. Though, I will spare you the actual images of my make-up-less-face and all-natural-curly-frizzy-hair, while typing away in my sweats and tank daily-duds. Seriously.

I say all that to say, I’ve had some posts scheduled that I haven’t gotten to finish. I’ve been choosing my family and my kids and my home over the blog. And for me, that’s the way it should be. But, I did want to update you on what I am planning.

Last week I started sharing my passions with you. One post I wrote was on “mentoring,” and the other on “missions.” I’ve got two more I’d like to write finish writing. One on “motherhood,” and the other on “making of a home.” Catching on yet? Well, I didn’t actually try and find all words that begin with “M.” It sorta just worked out that way.

Mentoring is wildly important to me,
missions is part of my calling,
I am immersed full-time + lots of over-time in messy motherhood,
and I spend more time making-a-home than most anything.

I intentionally planned to write the posts that lead up to my new “about me” page. That’s coming soon, too. Slowly, a blog make-over is happening. 🙂

I have big dreams, friend. Those dreams are becoming clearer as I own my passions, instead of try and trade them in for someone else’s. The amazing thing about seeking God for direction is this; when our hearts are completely His, many times the desires we have are His too, because He put them there. So, after a while of asking Him, “What am I supposed to do?” His answer comes as a question, “What is it that you want to do?” because the answer is one in the same.

Do you think so? I do, and it’s freeing, within radically, immensely beautiful Holy Ghost bounds.

Well, friend, if you stuck around for my rambling post, I thank you. Tomorrow I am going to share about a book my friend co-wrote that just released yesterday. A book I believe every one who cares about making any difference in the world around them, should read.

Until then…

    My life is one big beautiful mess, which I gladly give to Him to use for His glory! You are a treasure!

    You, my friend, have given me the biggest hug with your encouragement here. My summer is full of beautiful messes too. . .Oh, I must choose to be thankful and *see*! Love you!

    “when our hearts are completely His, many times the desires we have are His too, because He put them there. So, after a while of asking Him, “What am I supposed to do?” His answer comes as a question, “What is it that you want to do?” because the answer is one in the same.” Yes… this. Thank you. And for sharing about messy-goodness or as I call it beautiful-mess. It’s an unusual calling to talk about those things that most rather keep hidden: failure, loosing our temper, having to say I’m sorry again. I think that’s why I’m so drawn over and over to your blog: you share this truth too and it trickles down to this mama with just 3 littles 3 and under and encourages her in a way that makes her want to keep encouraging with photos and words.
