31 Days: Journey to Trust (Day 1)

We are home from a long anticipated vacation. It was all we had prayed for -  days filled with sunshine and blue skies and time with much loved family we don't see nearly often enough. Together we explored the incredibly beautiful Outer-banks, stepped back into history on battlefields in Virginia and the cobble-stoned streets of Williamsburg, and walked trails with the "big red dog." It was wonderful.

I find it is always a little bit of a jolt to step from days of relative irresponsibility back into my "real" life. There's the laundry, the pending doctor visits and the inevitable stack of mail -to name a few.

All that to say I thought I would give The Nester's 31 Days a pass this year. With so many calendar squares filled and all the catching up to do, I couldn't imagine finding the time to write for 31 days straight.  However, there was this gentle nudging - the kind I find hard to ignore. A sort of a whisper into the heart of me.

So I come with my little, trusting Him to use it as He will. For that is the journey I've been on for as long as I've drawn breath - this journey to trust. Perhaps you would like to walk along with me. It's always so much nicer to have company.  I will share from my heart - just little bits I've learned (I have only begun to plumb the depths) - and would love to learn from you.We'll start tomorrow evening (one of those doctor appointment days tomorrow).

  1. So good to see you here again, Linda. Looking forward to what you have to share.

  2. Looking forward to reading more as you are sharing your incredible wisdom.

  3. Looking forward to it Linda. I am writing 31 days but I wanted to write without restraint. I didn't want to think about who would read or what would fall out on the page. I already did that today and it was good and soul cleansing. So my 31 days won't be posted but I am thankful you are responding to the nudge. God has something for you-- and us through you-- in the days to come.

  4. Oh, I loved Williamsburg.

    Gotta trust those whispers! xo

  5. I learn so much about trust from you, friend.

  6. I just now found this series, Linda - and figured out how to subscribe so I won't have to play catch-up anymore. I checked in at day 11, so I'm reading backwards for a while.

  7. Glad that you all enjoyed your travels...
