I was working on an Interests Lately post, but I haven't had much access to my computer this week. We had a minor mishap with Jordan's main work machine (back up your files, friends). Regardless, my heart has been a little heavy lately and my original post wasn't right at this time.
Does anyone else feel that life is a giant pendulum and once the balance has been reached, it starts to swing again? My pendulum is currently swinging a lot.
I've cried a lot this year; joyful tears, personal tears, but many more for others. Sometimes, life and death cohabit the same space. Sometimes, we are celebrating and mourning with friends and family almost simultaneously. It's in these moments, when I am reminded to soak up this precious life.
Jordan and I are spending the next few days away visiting friends. I am grateful for these opportunities. Have a wonderful weekend and hopefully you are able to spend it with the people you love :-)
You, Lord, are my lamp; the Lord turns my darkness into light (2 Sam. 22:29, NIV).
