triumphant return

 you probably don't recognize the blog name or this new design... 
its been almost a year, friends, since my last post on my little blog that was formerly titled 
ive gone through a lot of growing and experiences in these months, and i finally decided it was time to reboot the blog and thrust myself back into this world. 
i missed it. 
i missed typing out my thoughts and sharing my photography and life. i missed reviewing books and i missed everything. 
so this is my return. 

like i said, ive grown a lot. 
when i last posted (on 3.1.15), i was unemployed, directionless and kinda just there
im not going to say ive got everything figured out, because i haven't. 
im still uncertain about the paths that He is going to take me down and where im going to be in five years, ten years, twenty years. 
im turning the big two-oh in a few weeks and it still kinda feels like im a fifteen year old girl who was afraid to drive because she didn't want to have responsibility for the lives of her passengers. 

im working now.
i got a full-job as a general reporter at the local newspaper (be prepared to hear plenty about that), and its pretty great in my opinion. 
sure, sometimes i dont want to get up at 6:30 in the morning to do my make up and hair and dress in a way befitting of a reporter (you mean i cant wear my slouchy neon marilynn monroe shirt??). 
but on a whole, i like it. 
ive been cutting out every news piece i write because this job, and its opportunities, are important to me. 
 i have a mission task on my heart (not going to go into details about that quite yet until the Lord reopens the door), and i think my ministry will either be with kids. 
 i hope. 
but then, i don't know anything still.

i think, thats where ive grown the most. 
i dont expect to know everything anymore. 
im ok with having the road ahead be fuzzy and im ok with having to hold my hands out in front of me in the blind faith that He will take them and lead me though the unclear patches. 
i like to look back on the previous year and assign it a word that summed it up.
ive had grow and bloom..
2015 was the year of trust. 
 trusting Him to know the things i don't know. 

im excited to be returning and hopefully reconnecting with followers..
ive missed this. 
and im excited to see where 2016 takes me, takes this blog and takes my life.
