–transition–

transition. In around 6 weeks I’m going to learn a new definition of this word. As I stretch my writing “legs” and open my mind back to the words I’ve written here before, I sit, looking back on who I’ve been, and who I’m rediscovering. Dan and I have been married months and months now…

{Mr&Mrs}

We’re off friends! On a new adventure. We are just shy of being married for 2 months. We’re learning what it means to love deeply, forgive freely, and to move in the eb and flow of uncertainty. That’s life, isn’t it? It’s been a hard couple of months. Months filled with some serious love, joy,…

…Because of March 16, 2013!

“Even The Winter” What if we find ourselves beneath the snow, our warmest words all frozen in our throats and all we feel is left out in the cold, you and I?What if the days grow short and lose their light? What if the coals burn black and the embers die? and we can’t find…

back again.

Hello blogging friends. I’m back, and taking just a few of the moments this evening at home in Indy to blog while I have internet access. My heart is rather content to pour out some words here, sitting on the blue couch with tan trim next to my Dearest Daniel while my sister and mom…

In 7 months they’ll call me Mrs. Ng

Yep! That’s right. 7 Months from today, on March 16, 2013, I’ll be getting a new last name. Dan + Kate = the future Mr. and Mrs. Ng. wow. The sheer overwhelming nature of all of this, the story I wanted to write down in its completed form, and the planning-mode I’ve been in have…

of thunder and sun

Here I share with you a song from Josh Garrels that I ran to the other day (pretending you are a maiden faith-warrior on the treadmill is much more fun than running without music. Just saying). “Rise” by Josh Garrels “In surrender and despair Before I’m dead, I’ll take the last climb Up the mountain,…

9 months, and sojourners on the way

A kingdom that cannot be shaken: this is what we have been given. As I listened to Josh Garells play his indie-folk music at Redeemer Presbyterian church Downtown, I heard truth, a strain of thought he commented upon between two of the songs. He was speaking of being out in the desert. He said that…

When you need to remember that He uses it all…

“Record my lament; list my tears on your scroll — are they not in your record?” {Psalm 56:8} What do you do when your heart screams “NO!” and “What about me?” How do you pick up the “yes” of this morning, this new day of more waiting on the Lord?  “My heart is in anguish…

contentedness

I’m “ready” to hear back from people. I’m “ready” to get some sort of response from employers who have received my cover letter and resume. At least, I think I am “ready.”  This is apparently not something I “need” to know. God knows what I need. He is able to come through, change circumstances, turn…

when you take heart

“Take heart” These words I heard yesterday as I walked up steps, and away from embrace. He said them as I went to do the good thing that I had in front of me. The good things were waiting. Was my heart there to take hold of them? After seven months of grace in this…

don’t know how to accept it

I’m finding, I don’t know how to accept love. Accepting it from some people it is easier than accepting it from others. From my parents, I feel comfortable accepting their love. But most of the time, I find myself striving to earn every other person’s love. I want to be a good friend (so that…
