the last couple of years i have really struggled through the winters, for a variety of reasons...the largest being an exceptionally bad job, tough times for my family, a second mediocre job, and an unhealthy amount of stress from doing way too many things half-heartedly.
this year, the winter hasn't been like that. i'm looking to spring this year not as an escape from winter's pain, but as a continuation of the things that are building. i am so excited about the future, and even though i really don't know what it looks like at all, i am not afraid of it for once. it beckons me with a smile, and i want to run to what God has for me. i can feel it like the promise of the sun on my arms when i'm driving. it's teasing me...summer is coming! get ready for it!
