About Facing Glory

I am learning that it takes time to see God's glory. It is always there, but when I write I tend to look for it more. And so I write this blog. It's simple, thoughtful and a glimpse of the journey I'm on. I enjoy hearing your ideas, so comment freely.
Love, Lindsay

Today

Thomas Moore : To live ordinary life artfully is to have this sensibility about the things in daily life, to live more intuitively and to be willing to surrender a measure of our rationality and control in return for gifts of the soul.

Fall is Coming

When you live in Texas, you learn to appreciate the small glimpses of seasons. Our summers last the majority of the calendar year. I like how the air smells a little crisper in the mornings and the sun sets at a different angle making everything look a little more majestic. Beautiful days just seem to be more frequent.

"The leaves are starting to change. They welcome with brilliance the death that awaits them with the oncoming fall. Oranges, yellows, reds, and reluctant greens call from the hilltop and testify to the beauty of life and the inevitability of death."

I'm experiencing the truth of this statement this fall. This season, I'm learning a lot of things about myself. It's funny that the less clear responsibility you have in your days, the harder it is to get everything done. I say this to intro the basic quality of the past couple of months. My summer job is complete, my waitressing job is not paying the bills and my physical therapy school applications are still out. But the beautiful part of it all is that I really have all I need- Lovely friends, good books, job applications and a substitute teaching badge. What more could a girl want?

I have lived my whole life having things quite orderly and clearly planned. These days have been different and although I'm feeling the growing pains of adulthood, I wouldn't trade them for anything. Through it all, I really know God is close. Sometimes it's a little harder to believe all His plans are good, but He hasn't let me down thus far. I'm sticking with my God for a while longer.
