I captured and posted this earlier this week from my iPhone. It represents the soul-crushing weariness I’ve felt in the last few weeks. An exhaustion that I haven’t felt since 2007. We are working to find out what is going on with my stress levels, my body, and my “life” – but I thought this quote was so apropos to what I have been feeling.
♥ Hanging by a Thread
It always amazes me how spiders can hang by a thread and not feel the least bit stressed about it. They weave and craft their home with silky-thin strands and set their mind to complete the task no matter the obstacle (rain, sleet, snow, wind, humans). If for some reason their web is destroyed, they simple pick themselves back up and start spinning threads again.
This was from the Folklore festival. I love the collage of colors that is on this Kenyan design. Makes me miss Africa…
♥ Look on the Bright Side
Now all you have to do is climb down the mountain!
We have started the process of looking for a new one. Pray for us people! It is exciting and terrifying and wonderful all at once. It has been an opportunity for John and I to bond and we have an absolutely darling real-estate agent. We think we might have found a house – it is a pretty long shot – but we are hopeful. I attended a church called the Journey this morning in what could be “our” new neighborhood and loved it too. So there is the hope of community… and while I was standing in service, I had the thought that no matter where we land – I always find my true “home” in God’s house. It is where my heart has always felt the most at peace, and I love that.
