like a piece of glass, suddenly shattered,
swept up and forgotten. in a blink. so fast.
is that life? or is it more?
we went camping this weekend. without the distractions of technology or schedules, the hours passed in laughter, play, and conversation. and when the weekend was over, and sunday night arrived, along with the shocking death of such a young dreamer, i was so thankful, so blessed, for the weekend i had.
it makes me think about my life. am i living as i have been called? am i living for the moment, the temporary, or the eternal, the ultimate?
that's why i try to share with you these struggles and these joys. you and so many other keep me accountable. your words and comments bring me so much hope. it's like a little note of encouragement is slipped in my hand every time you write beautiful blog posts and write lovely comments. thank you for that. from deep in my heart.
there is so much more that i could say and tell you how i feel, but i want to know: what about you? what do you live for? tell me!
p.s. Only three days left to enter the self-portrait contest!
