I've definitely been neglecting the blogosphere (yes, I said 'blogosphere') for some time now.
I've avoided blogging for a few reasons. Mostly due to a sincere lack of time to sit down and write something other than a paper for social work or english or history or...whatever.
I've also been avoiding blogging because I've felt I've just had so much to say and have been wrestling with so many big thoughts these days that it has almost been immobilizing.
I'm craving community.
Two of my best friends in the world are overseas right now. Many of my other dear friends have graduated and moved away. I find myself once again writing about this strange transition time I am in, the same one so many of my friends are going through.
It's good to know I am not alone in this.
In some ways, it feels as if my life is waiting to begin - almost as if I am being left behind in a sense while others continue on their brave and adventurous journeys.
I know that is not the Truth - just a lingering feeling.
I realize my life is happening right now. My brave and adventurous journey is here, for now.
So, what am I going to do with it?
What are you going to do with it?
And what are we working towards?
Many thoughts and questions I've been pondering these days.
In the meantime, God is constantly overwhelming me with His kindness and goodness to me.
Life, although a perpetual mystery, is sweet and I am blessed far beyond what I deserve.
