Four months and nine days to be exact. I haven't missed writing, but at the same time I have. Over the last four and a bit months I've been painting, reading, sewing, crafting, being a mum, holidays, attending Colour Conference in Sydney, and generally spending time being by myself and reconnecting with a lot of the things that make me happy.
Being by myself does mean that I've been hibernating a little too much, but I think I've needed to do that. In my times of hibernation I've been hearing God speak to me about a lot of things in my life, and that makes me happy. Knowing that He is with me 24/7 is comforting, and has reconfirmed that only He will be by my side forever. People come and go, but Jesus remains.
I'm going to commence Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Life today. My lunch time reading and purpose actually. It's been many years since I first read through his book and recently found a newer copy at a second hand store, so I snavelled it up and will dive into it today. I need some new direction and purpose at the moment, and believe that this is the means by which I will discover it. I'm really looking forward to what I will discover over the next forty days.
I hope to post more often, and also share what I've been creating over at my art blog page too!
Here's hoping that all my blogland friends are well!
