All week when driving in the car, I just keep asking, what is it that you want me to share? Is there anything more freeing and inspiring than driving down the highway, windows down, sun gleaming over the horizon and the music blaring? It moves me in such a big way. The same way an ocean reaches out and touches my soul or a gorgeous mountain takes my breath away. The same way a good cry can feel so good or in a moment when you decide to just let it all go and the freedom floods you.
I get to share about Chris walking away from his job when we had a negative bank account, no savings and how God made himself real to me when He provided what we needed to the dollar. I get the honor of sharing how He met me at my darkest pain and how He covered me in those moments. I get to share about 3 NICU babies and 2 babies that went to Heaven early. How compassion and tenderness comes from walking through loss. How He led us through big leaps like starting an art studio and through the decision to make American Blogger. How Chris rode out in His kayak and prayed that if we were supposed to sell our house that a realtor we had met with a year before would email him sometime that month and it would be confirmation that that is where we were being led. And that the realtor text him within the same hour saying ” I had it on my calendar to follow-up with you on this morning all these months later.” I get to share how Real our God is, and how real He makes Himself known to me. How three different times in the last 6 months different women in my life have given me a message… all saying God put it on their hearts to share with me, all the same message, all the same verse. I get to share how God has humbled me and changed me.
I get to share my life.
