it's easy to forget.

new growth

With all the talk of enjoying the single life, it's easy for me to forget to articulate what it is that I feel ultimately called to. I forget to ask my friends to pray for it. I get caught up in how I feel now and what I'm doing now that I forget the glorious anticipation of this beautiful thing, and look at my hope in light of my present circumstances, which leaves a bitter taste in my mouth sometimes.

So I'm practicing being vulnerable and honest, lest I keep forgetting. Just in case I've mislead you while trying to muster a false sense of satisfaction...

_I want to get married.

_I want to have lots of children.


There it is, plain and simple.

Soooo hard to be vulnerable and honest. I'm proud of you. Thanks for sharing with (all of) us. :) I'll pray for you.

Also, have you met my boss? You have a lot in common... (Kidding! Don't kill me...please...)

Dear Luz--

I laughed a bit when I saw this post because I thought you were kidding... You weren't kidding ~;0) I am glad you were inspired. I'm praying for you (and Bonnie and me as well :0)

Love,
