I know that I’ve titled this (and myself) The Part Time Gypsy. However, our wanderings over the past couple of years have been restricted to the more close-to-home variety: parks, libraries, movies, back yards, etc. I’ve found myself not feeling the gift of gab about these more mundane and “normal” wanderings, but instead just living my life, going through each day. Most days are good, some even great – but they feel very “normal”, very un-noteworthy you might say. Or perhaps it’s just that instead of curling up with my MacBook on a warm summer evening, I’d rather curl up with my family. Either way, I’ve been MIA. Again. :)
I did just write a post however – over on my other blog, The Drive Through Christian. It’s about a different sort of journey, a spiritual one, the one we’re always on even when we’re doing dishes, playing with Legos, and paying bills. It’s always there at the heart of our lives – guiding us and helping us make decisions, questioning us and making us take a good hard look at WHY we do the things we do.
This journey has been HUGE for me over the past year. I haven’t felt the desire to write about it just yet, but suddenly it came. It hit me pretty hard and I just felt a need to share. It’s over HERE on the other blog site. (If you haven’t signed up for those email alerts yet, you can do so. Unfortunately, being signed up for this one will not get you automatically on that list!)
The blog itself is short because there’s a recording of my story that I’ve included. Take a listen. See if it resonates with you. Have you had a similar experience? Or any experience that made you KNOW in your heart that God listens? I’d love to hear them.
From Off the Beaten Path, (Wow. Never realized the spiritual significance of those words until now. That’ll make a GREAT blog someday… )
