To Write, to Breathe

This morning, the sun pierced through the blue fall sky, through the kitchen window and exposed the layer of dust on my computer keyboard.

I haven’t touched it for months. Nearly six months.

My fingers have been stiff and achy these days.

Life has been full, a flurry of change and adventure. We moved to Texas and have been busy adjusting to it all. My to-do lists have been long. But sadly my words have been few.

How I’ve missed you my blog friends. I wonder how you are? How I’ve missed writing in this space.

It caught me by surprise, but maybe for some, writing is the way we remember to breathe.

Honestly, I’m not sure what I ‘ve been waiting for. Maybe for life to settle a bit more. But sometimes it’s in the waiting, in that place of uncertainty and process, that we are most real.

So even while I sit here in our new home with unfinished rooms and incomplete thoughts, I will dive in anyway.

I hope I haven’t lost too many of you, dear readers!

Please stay tuned – I will continue here at Invited by Grace!

There. I committed myself now. 🙂

‘Til then, as we prepare for a season of thanksgiving, here’s a tidbit to cling to:

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. ~ Colossians 3:15

Peace. Let it rule our hearts.

Gratitude. Lord, help it to be the richest, loudest anthem of our lives.

  1. I totally understand the break from writing or not continuing with the same message all together. I created my blog in a time of pain, of transition, and since having grown into a new phase, I have not revisited it. But, I would still like to read your work if you want to share!

    1. I completely understand! I just checked your blog, and I do see that it’s gone. 😦 Loved your work while you shared it with us. Maybe in time you will come back too!

    1. Thanks. I will have fun with those unfinished rooms … though I have to admit, “unfinished” rooms drive me a little crazy. Glad to see your blog is still up and running too!

  2. Kim, I haven’t checked my reader in quite some time but I’m glad I did today and found your words.
    You have a beautiful way with words and I pray the Lord leads you — and that you would feel His peace wherever that may be. Hugs!

  3. Hi Kim,
    You’ve had a lot on your plate…so just just breathe and the words will follow. Congratulations on such a complex and successful move to your new home. Blessings and warm wishes for a happy Thanksgiving.
    Much love,
    Shirlene
