Hello, hello! Welcome to my new little online home!
Those of you who’ve known me for a while know that I’ve had a number of blogs over the years. I’ve loved them all. They all offered companionship as I walked the roads unique to whatever phase of life I was in; allowed me to wrestle with issues I needed to work through; brought me joy and relief amidst the highs and lows of young motherhood; and introduced me to new friends — many of whom are dear to me to this day.
Just recently, something hit me about all of these sites. Though the URLs were different, there was a common thread that united all of them:
The theme has never changed.
As I look back on all my years of blogging, everything I’ve written about has been an attempt to answer the question:
How can I love with less fear and live with more passion?
How can I better unite myself to God, who is not only the source of Love but Love itself? How can I more fully participate in this love and pass it on to my husband, my children, my friends, and even strangers? How can I better listen to the quiet, wild calls of the Holy Spirit and offer my fiats with less trepidation? And how can I use this freedom to embrace this short life that has been given to me with “some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” (Maya Angelou)
My hope is that this site will allow me to continue to explore these questions while leaving room to move between relevant topics (including marriage which will always be one of my favorite things to talk about). I’m ridiculously excited about it. It feels like both a fresh start and also, at long last, a permanent resting place for my reveries.
And so with that, I’m off to continue decorating my new place! Thank you so much for stopping by!
I am tickled pink that you’re here.
