Now to him who is able to accomplish far more than all we ask or imagine by the power at work within us. Ephesians 3:20
So many thoughts.
It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged. Not like share-a-beautiful-session blogged, but instead, written-from-the-depths-of-my-heart blogged. I miss coming here to pause, to reflect, to share little pieces of my soul as often seen through the lens of my camera.
Staying home with the little man this year was a definite change of pace for me and a good one at that. A humbling busyness, a beautiful fullness that was so much bigger than any parenting book could have described, a slower and more deliberate day-to-dayness. Blogging, more often than not, lingered at the bottom of a seemingly endless to-do list of errands and chores, and most importantly, time spent with my son. I don’t regret my priority shift one bit, but I will admit that I miss sharing my Big Sky Love. Lately, I’ve been feeling that desire to write here return. I’ve started and stopped and started and stopped and started and stopped various posts many times over the past month. My perfectionist ways tend to overpower just letting my simple little voice shine through. I’ve hesitated to be present to matters of the heart. Yet, my faith beckons me here. I am being called.
Here I am.
Many of you know that my faith is such a very important part of who I am. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been praying more and journaling more. I’ve been spending time with God through my bible, and it’s been a gift. God’s words are exactly the ones etched on my heart. God’s words are exactly the ones that I feel so called to share.
Here I am.
For some time now, my daydreams have focused on how to more intentionally weave my faith into my creative life and, on the flipside, my creative life into my faith. There are so many other creative women that, though they have no idea, have inspired me to live my life more fully by doing so. And so, I’m exploring and stumbling and learning. I’m getting to know God all over again. It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing.
I’m planning on returning to a few personal photography projects I started a while back (like this one, While He Sleeps) as well as starting a new one. One that I hope will further illuminate the Creator as we create. More on that soon I hope.
God has planted our dreams deep within our hearts with great purpose. Our gifts were bestowed upon us to bring those dreams to fruition. We are called. I am called.
Here I am.
