Hi, friends.


So, I flaked on my #MuseMonday post last week, and I don’t have much to say today. There are hills to sled down, cookies to bake, memories to make. My husband leaves for Liberia a few days after Christmas and we’re revelingin this sweet holiday season and time together before we are apart.

Fast paced and interesting, I loved that Baby Doll explored the what happens *after* surviving a horrifically tragic event. If you think escape is the end of the story, think again...

“I decided right then and there that if home is where the heart is, my heart has been homeless for a very long time.”
Nicole Baart, The Moment Between

“A life lived outside of the will of the Lord is like trying to climb a waterfall.”
Nicole Baart

“I wanted so much when I was young. I was an endless abyss of want, of need of desperate dreams for myself that defied logic. The promise of what was to come hung like rings around the moon on clear autumn nights; the future was unmistakeable. It was always there, glistening in the dark and suggesting that life was little more than climbing a ladder into the sky, where I could reach up with one hand and secure everything that I had ever hoped for in my grasping fingers.
Oh, I dreamed.
And they are not easy to give up, these dreams.”
Nicole Baart, Summer Snow
tags: dreams

“So much of my life had been spent taking and taking and taking. Thinking it was all about me, believing that everything came down to me and how I felt, what I wanted. Even in my grasping attempts to know God, I did exactly that: I grasped. I sought. Sometimes I waited. But I never opened myself, spread my soul wide as an offering so He could come and capture me. I never let Him run strong fingers through my soil, watering it with His grace so my fruit could grow and grow above the weeds that threatened to choke it out.”
Nicole Baart, Summer Snow
