This year has been a full one for me!
And I’ve really enjoyed the chance to write regularly. I love to write, and hope it is a big part of my future.
But right now I’m feeling a call to radical presence–presence to Jesus, to myself, to nature, to quiet, to my husband, and to my children. I am one who flings myself far and wide with lots of initiatives and ideas. I’m feeling a call to pull it back and recenter this upcoming year. I need to do the challenge I proposed on the site a few weeks back–saying no. No blog, no homeschooling, no hosting the neighborhood Bible study, no service projects, no overseas mission trips.
I know I have a call to contemplative prayer and contemplative presence. And this past year was just too busy to respond to and deepen in that calling. I am tired of being too busy.
So, here’s to a year of letting go and slowing down.
Somewhere down the road I look forward to writing again 🙂
