Whew! I took up the challenge to write 31 days. By no means did I blog each day for those 31 days. However, I choose to not quit.
This week’s silence has much to do with the unexpected stressors of life. But in a still moment this weekend, I realize that this gives me life.
This space shared with you is a wonderful adventure.
This empty canvas to paint upon is where my heart is free to express.
If there is one thing I have learned through this challenge it is that I am wired to write. Some days I would sigh looking at the academic paper I knew I had to write before I allowed myself to write in this place. Why?
Because my heart was yearning to share with you. It was desiring to create something authentic.
We must feed the artist within, otherwise he slumbers and dies with lost potential. Between the work hours, the obligations, the housework, the meetings, the school work we must fight to keep the artist alive in us.
There is a message stored up in each of us. And listening ears are waiting to hear. Seeing eyes are waiting to gaze upon the beautiful expression.
What is the message you carry? What is the artful expression about to explode out of you?
May your unique expression stir so violently in you that you cannot ignore it any longer. May we be brave to let loose the artist within. And may we take the time to encourage others to not look like anyone but who they were meant to be.
May we reflect the image engraved on our hearts.

31 That’s a wrap!
Here I go again, attempting with thousands of others on the internet to write consecutively for 31 days on the same topic.
This go around will be interesting for sure. Grad student, busy body keeping clients happy, ministry school student. The roles can be a bit overwhelming at times. But at my core what are the burning desires? The roles that if I were to not fulfill, a piece of me would be in angst. These roles are birthed out of a relationship with the one who is Love. Writer, Artist, Revivalist, Daughter, Sister.
In an attempt to feed (and hopefully you can do the same) the inner spinnings of my spirit, here is space for you and I to explore for 31 days, Reflections. I’m more than thrilled! I hope you will join me on this journey.
We take a look back to remember, to learn, to restore. We reflect. In the deepest parts of us we have mirrors hidden within our souls covered by dusty blankets. What are these mirrors meant to reflect? We look upon the waters of a vast lake and we see the heavens kiss the earth as clouds dance upon the ripples. It is but a mere reflection.
What is in your heart and soul spinning around waiting to be revealed?
