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.

Being here


Have you ever noticed that it can be hard to live right now? It's difficult to exist in full awareness of the moment. Perhaps we get overwhelmed sometimes and think it's easier to tune out most of life. However, I'm finding that being fully present in each moment is where the joy is.

We all want to find peace, happiness, joy, purpose, meaning and contentment. I'm pretty sure I haven't found any of those things when I'm tuning out reality. Sounds funny to say doesn't it? Nobody wants to admit they check out of reality. That makes you sound like a bit of a psychology case, but we all do it.

However, every time I just soak up life around me, I'm overjoyed or overwhelmed to the point I pray with more gumption than I knew I had and then God gives me joy in even terrible looking circumstances.

I'm learning to live right here, right now. Little moments and big moments make up my life. I don't want to miss them anymore.

I snapped this shot because I thought the tree looked like the shape of the Scottish Spires and I liked it.

    uhhh, sha.

    you speak truth.

    it's a struggle to live in the day... not just through the day.

    it takes time and heart.

    but it's worth it. i think that's why i enjoy art so much. it means details, and thought. sometimes it means meditating on scripture and prayer. top
