Beautifully Broken and Wholly Loved You are going to think I am crazy, but I bought a beautiful water pitcher. That isn't the crazy part, I had actually bought it to break it! You are probably asking why would I do such a thing, and I share with you the story behind the pitcher. [...]
Have you ever felt like you were following His lead, but it seems like you are getting nowhere? There are times that I feel like I am on cloud 9 when I am following Him, but sometimes I can feel like I have no idea what direction is up, and what direction is down. I can feel like I am taking giant leaps into what He has before me, and then sometimes I feel like I am taking the tiniest steps ever! Sometimes I can even wonder if what He has before me will even be worth it. What happens if I don't like what He has for me?
I really enjoy pillow talk. You know when women get together late at night, with the lights dim, and get really vulnerable with each other. Maybe this happens at a retreat before everyone turns in for the night, or maybe it's just a night when you and your friends are sitting on the couch with fuzzy blankets (that's what happens at my house!). I love these conversations. I love the beauty in the openness that happens during these talks, and the bond and trust that is formed and deepened. Sometimes what is shared are the great things going, and sometimes what is shared is the struggle and heart break. And let me tell you that “pillow talk” is code for what is shared here stays here.
