Up at 2 AM


So, here goes... I find myself sleepless one more night (not unusual since I will typically work nights), but alas, this is a night I should be snoozing peacefully next to my husband. Yet instead I find my brain traveling a million miles a minute thinking of a thousand things at once. I can't slow it down, so I get up.

I am thinking mainly about life in general and what paths I may take in the next year that might shape my ultimate future and help me to live out my purpose. Heavy stuff for what is now 2 AM. I find myself turning on the old laptop to search the internet for answers. Yet when I imagined myself searching for answers on the internet I heard God say, "the answers are already in you." So, instead I imagine myself finding my journal and rummaging for a pen and the thought of all that was exhausting - especially when I pictured myself using the lost art of longhand to quickly jot down all my crazy bursts of thought. Surely God can't mean for me to go through all that...?...

Therefore, here I am. A BLOG! Brilliant! The Lord works in mysterious ways. This is the beginning place to make sense of those non-sequiter thoughts, that turn into ideas that turn into choices, that turn into paths, that make up my life. Or it could also just be where I post my latest fascination or hobby (obsession). Either way, I was led here and for me, tonight, this might just be enough to get me back to sleep. Sometimes just a little action goes a long way...

Thanks for reading.
