About the Author

I'm passionate about life, a recovering "yes-girl" I'm learning to live to do right things not just good things. I want to be REAL, and really live. I write honestly. Most of the time in fragments; about control, imperfection, homeschool, emotions, balance, and living by faith. I am that girl...

    • Kate! Such a beautiful post about your journey. Happy to walk beside you (even if it’s a virtual walk) until we get there!

  1. What a joy to see you posting here today!

    “I want to be strange and a stranger, shining His love and living in the joy of His truth.”

    Love this. Thank you for your words and sharing your heart.

  2. Great thoughts, great encouragement, great reminders! Thank you for sharing. Particularly as a busy working outside the home mom, this speaks to me :). Not fully knowing the details, but wanting to dwell with Him in the light.

    • Kate — I too am living the balance of working and home – so glad this brought you encouragement! YES to light dwelling!

  3. I am… Homesick for HIM! Well stated and how I feel. Not the kind of earthly homesick I sometimes feel, but so longing for that peace that only HE Can bring!

  4. Lately I’ve had the saddest feeling. I just don’t want to be here. It’s not a harm myself kind of feeling, don’t misunderstand, it’s just this feeling that I want to be someplace else. Someplace with no sadness, no pain, no worries, none of the complicated yuck that seems to be everywhere I look. I think, maybe, your post explains that feeling. Thank you.

  5. Penny – I am so very glad to have been able to put words to your feelings. This place we we walk is hard and messy and full of complicated yuck as you put it, I am very glad it’s only temporary. Looking forward to a new place with you!

  6. I thoroughly enjoyed this post and it’s reminder to be homesick for God. That will help me to remember Him in my every day. Thank you.

  7. I am weary, sick and tired of this place called Earth. So much stress, worry and crap! Taking time this week to be quiet and listen to God. Sitting at beach relaxing before the crazy starts again!

    Longing for more of Him & spiritual white space to breath in more of His love, grace & mercy!

    Blessings 🙂

  8. Beth —
    The beach sounds wonderful! I sure hope the sun and sand have helped you to hear God’s will for you while you are here and experience His peace. It’s hard – and worry (in my experience) only makes it worse. Deep breath sister, enjoy His creation and rest your soul for the road ahead!
