What’s in a name?
These days my life is about as far as I could get from deep rolling right field. Its busy, I’m caught in the action and my teammates (especially RRL, and my four or sometimes seven kiddos) depend on the fact that I’m actually in the game ALL THE TIME. So I created this blog to step back into my little quiet place of observation.
Every now and then I like to pause, reflect, and share. Because these thoughts are about the game I’m currently observing, you are likely to mostly see stories about my four crazy adorable kids, my amazing bonus kids and the joy and struggle that comes with having them “for a while” , my faith struggles and victories and occasionally some thoughts about the bigger world around me.
All of the thoughts come through the lens of where I stand right now: in my role as a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a part-time employee, and especially as someone anticipating the Lord’s return. I find that these moments I spend writing about my family and reflecting on my life tend to bring me to a place of thanksgiving and pure delight. The Lord has richly blessed me. That by no means should indicate to you that I’ve got it all figured out or that my life is easy (heavens, right now I have seven kids under 9). In fact, quite the opposite is true. My life often feels like it is spinning out of control. Here, though, I can reflect on the good and rich life that the Lord has placed me in. From this position on the field, I’d say this is a pretty sweet game I’m getting to play!
