Expansion

For the last year, our life has been marked by transition. A much longer transition then we anticipated or desired. And being in transition for so long has caused necessary — though often frustrating — limits on our life.

But…

It has also opened the door to some pretty amazing expansions.

I have finally found the time to begin writing a novel.

My sweetie and I have prayed more, together; we have fought more, together; and we have grown more together.

And when I have felt that I could not survive one more day without something changing or else I would break, I broke. But when I stopped crying, I realized that God had already fixed my brokenness with His strength. And with His strength, I am capable of so much more.

I still find myself resisting His limits, but I am slowly learning to trust that His limits are there for my good — to make more room for Him and His plans in my life.

About Sarah

I love being wife to my sweetie, mama and teacher to my three wonderful children, and friend to people near and far. I love to express myself through words. I blog to connect with others and so that someday, hopefully, my kiddos will understand who their mama was...way back when.
