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.

Seeing spots


Remember when you were little and all the team moms wanted to take a group picture. You see spots for a while. You get overwhelmed, sick of the photo frenzy. You want out of the forced team pose. All you see are spots.

But sometimes you can take a look up, quit focusing on the flashes and see that you can look beyond the line of soccer moms and just 'be' right where you're at. This is how I'm coping with grad school. Bear with me a minute. It's a crazy analogy I know, but think about it. I have seven professors all with very 'important' assignments. I could spend my time getting quite overwhelmed or I can look beyond the deadlines and declarative statements and see the big plan. I am walking on a blessed road. This opportunity is a gift and I can choose to simply enjoy being here. So I'm choosing to look beyond the dots.

So I enjoy this view. This is what I see from the lunch room of school. It's beautiful and the chairs a quite cozy. I'm learning to be at home where I am. School can be restful, even with constant deadlines. I'm choosing to still do what I love (like blogging!)

And then this evening, the Lord helped me unwind a bit more with this glorious image in his creation.

This verse encouraged me today...
I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. John 17:22-23

His glory is all around us. Enjoy today friends.
