Out To Lunch...

Out to Lunch, Out of Touch, Daydreaming, Escaping Reality: 
All of these terms could be used to describe my state of mind right now. 
My life is about to change, drastically, there will be some pain before the gain...and I cannot bring myself to grasp the full reality of it.

Yes, bloggers, I am about to have much more time on my hands.
In my mind I have this picture of being chic and slender, organized and creative, productive, focused and driven to learn new things, clean up my home, start new projects, UPDATE and Cultivate my blog!

Reality is that I'm probably Not going to feel like doing ANY of those things...
And the next 7 weeks of my life will be a faith building struggle just to get back to normal.

Much more details to come (when I have more time on my hands)!

St. Patrick's Day Prayer

May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.

Woke up with sad news of a friend's mother passing away.
I remember that fresh pain in the early hours of the morning:Knowing your loved one is in the presence of the Lord is reassuring, but the panic and grief that strikes you is like no other feeling. 

Ten years after the passing of my mother, I am reminded that God's tender loving kindness was there all the time, even in the midst of all that anxiety and pain.

All I can possibly do is try to provide the same comfort that God provided to me through so many others.

Praying that my friend's comfort and blessings are too numerous to count.

Sublime Light and Blessings

My Valentine prayer is:
That we all may experience 
the fullness and greatness of 
God's special love for us,
The kind of love that never fails,
Never gives up,
Never runs out...
All consuming, perfect and 
Overflowing with grace and

New Beginnings and Silver Linings?

Source: via glorious on Pinterest

I have to admit, I've been gone for a long time...
I wasn't very far, just over in Pinterest land, where I've been spending late nights, iphone data and sick days, daydreaming and trying to become more motivated.

The last month of 2012 was sad and heartbreaking on so many levels. 
Though I'm grateful to see another year I haven't really set any realistic goals for 2013.

Truth be told, I think I'm going through some sort of metamorphosis 
(details to come later).

Distance has made my heart grow fonder, but in a different way, for my blog.
I have to find a way to combine my pinterest/instagram/blogger activities into one and LIMIT them so that I can go out and experience life a little more.

In the meantime, if you want to see latest fascinations, feel free to

My prayers and tears go out to all affected by the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in Connecticut and the mall shooting in Oregon.
