Back to Normal

Back to Normal.  Not quite.  I don’t think I’ll be “Normal” until I’m in Heaven praising Jesus and spending time with my Grandparents. 

But in a way I’m “Normal.”  I finally completed my Associate in Arts in Liberal Arts degree (and I’m in no way liberal).  It’s been a long year.  After my post last year I needed to distress.  {Please forgive me for just leaving and not explaining why I quit writing.}

Samuel’s wreck and his life transaction took a lot out of me.  Then as August approached, I realized that a new chapter in my life had started.  I was the mother of a college student – with me in college as well. I was able to get through Biology (actually learned a few things along the way). 

I was thinking I was going to write again over the Christmas holidays but I never could.  It’s in those times that I feel as God is nowhere around.  Yet He was.  As my family celebrated Christmas, New Years, and Easter –  He was there. 

I moved into my last semester {yes, another Biology class}.  I graduated in May.  Hmmm . . . maybe I can write again?

Nope.  I’ve gone through most of the summer with this post in my mind and I’m Afraid. 

Afraid.

Afraid that if I started writing again . . . no one will read it.

Afraid that if I started writing again . . . that I will find a new voice.

Afraid that if I started writing again . . . I’ll open myself up to new possibilities.

Yet, fears and all . . . I’m writing again.

So with August approaching again, He is drawing me Back to Normal.  Back to what my mind, body, and soul says is Normal – writing.  So as Samuel starts his second year of college student and my youngest, Caleb, starts High School – Back to Normal I try to become.

I can’t promise a new post every week.  I will write as the Spirit leads.  I will write when and if He has something to say.  As I slowly return to writing, I’ll be making some changes to the site itself as well.

Now, with forgiveness and hopefully acceptance, I start another chapter of my life.

My heart is bursting with a new song; lyrics to my king erupt like a spring for my king, to my king; my tongue is the pen of a poet, ready and willing. Psalm 45:1 The Voice Bible.
