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

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.

Finding space in tight places

The spacious moments in life are few and far between some seasons. By spacious moments I mean those times when you are fully present in the moment you are in. Undistracted by the clock, stressful circumstances and overwhelming demands of others. Those moments when you can just be. The times I don't have to be Lindsay the successful or Lindsay the efficient or Lindsay the productive. The times I can just be Lindsay. Just me. That's enough.

I've found that the process of creating pulls me into those moments quicker than anything else. Today, I'm sharing a couple of photos of my latest creation. I found this pattern on a blog I read frequently called Soulemama (The link to the pattern is on the left side of the screen) This was a really fun project to make. It took me about two hours and there were very few things I had to stop and figure out. When it comes to sewing, give me simplicity. I'm very limited in this set of skills.

I love this project for two reasons. It is something I've finished in the midst of crazy school and it allows me to keep creating a little bit at a time. Now I can take my notecards and stamps with me wherever I go. If I have a moment here and there, I can take a time to breathe a little deeper and write a note of thanks or encouragement. It helps me create a few more of the spacious moments in my days.

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we would walk in them. -Ephesians 2:10
