What an exciting Wednesday!
Today I am over at Kris Camealy’s website with a guest post as part of the launch of her new Advent Devotional, Come, Lord Jesus: The Weight of Waiting. I shared her book on Instagram last week and I can’t recommend it enough. As I wrote on my review on amazon.com:
Perhaps you too feel the stress of living in this world and your heart cries to be near Jesus. You are living in a time in between when one thing is finished, but the other hasn’t started. Or you are waiting to hear news of a pregnancy, remission, a job, or a wrong made right. If so, I recommend walking through Advent this year with Kris’s book Come, Lord Jesus. Or rather, walk through it now if you need to. Her gentle words of longing and hope are a balm to this weary soul. May they bring hope to you too.
Today, I was also live on Facebook with some exciting news! You can watch that video here! (Hint: I’m now a Compassionate Entrepreneur for Trades of Hope. More on why will be coming on the blog, but if you’re curious, learn more here!)
Now I need to rest and pick up the next book in the Harry Potter series. I think I’m on book 6 – for the third time. Happy Wednesday everyone!
In 2005 my husband and I pulled up roots from the Midwest where we had grown up, met, fell in love, and got married, so that I could attend seminary in Denver, CO. We moved from a land of green grasses, lush trees, plentiful waters, and humidity to 5280 feet of altitude, an arid climate, mountain views, and much less snow.
The climate of course wasn’t the only change. The move away from our families was monumental. I cried every time we said goodbye to them. Every holiday. Every vacation. Every visit from the parents. Every single time.
I thought after three and a half years of grad school we would return home.
I was wrong.
