First of all... check out Hopefulthings for a delightful recap of the Barn Sale! It was an overwhelming success, thanks to a good crowd and everyone who put so much energy and creativity into making it happen. 
We dreamed of doing this simply for the joy, just because it's something we are passionate about, and it was really incredible to experience everyone sharing in the beauty of collaboration.
Second... I love having a blog!
What a gift to have a place where you can change your mind any time you want... write as often as you want... 
and say what's on your mind! I won't always say everything that's on my mind. I use a filter like i use spell check! Consider yourself lucky! ha

Today, a new name and an ever-evolving look on the blog!

Life is a process,
always moving... changing... growing... expanding... and this space reflects that.

This year has been lots of learning... {not always} enjoying the process of growing differently, taking on many new roles and accepting imperfections along the way. 

   God is always moving us to go deeper with Him, never at a stand-still.

A week or 2 ago, if i hadn't been using the aforementioned filter, there would have been a post entitled OVERWHELMED.
Wallowing gets fairly miserable after awhile so, out of curiosity, and maybe the need for something different, i tried gratitude.

What a better way to love -- i meant to write live -- but love is what came out. I think that says it better! Wallowing is not loving. Thanksgiving is. 
Sometimes it looks like nothing is happening....
like a duck sitting calmly on top of the water, underneath the oceans are moving.
