let me be aware of the treasure you are.… Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
One day I shall dig my nails in the earth, or bury my face in my pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.

I have been a sporadic blogger lately, and a frustrated one as well. It’s with much prayer that I endeavor to bring God glory with my life, whatever that means at the moment. At this moment it means I am having a hard time with my hands and joints in particular. I have really struggled with sadness, complaining and frustration and I know those are all wrong reactions to my situation right now. I have decided to give my hands a rest and trust God with whatever he’s doing in my life, and to praise Him and honor him in any way that I can. That means being thankful for pain, taking my fears and frustration to the cross and trusting Him no matter the outcome. In the meantime He’s blessed me with a wonderful camera that helps me take much better photos. I am going to try to honor God on this blog with a few of them while my hands do a little healing. Love and peace to you all, and I pray I can get back to typing and posting more soon.
