An Update

On Friday, August 13, my beloved asked me to marry him. It was a very romantic proposal well suited to our tastes (he proposed in a bookstore), and the subsequent week was a flurry as we began wedding planning. In the days since he left my home, there have ensued certain dramas of the emotionally and mentally draining sort, which have not only precluded blogging but, frankly, my quiet time with the Lord. So I’m jumping back in headfirst, feeling utterly exhausted, sinful, and so very grateful that we have a savior who says “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).

This week is a blessing — my mother is out of town and so I have the house to myself. I am nearing the end of the month-long journey of “I won’t apply for work so that I can work on the novel and be faithful to God” — and trust me, the last 12 days have been brutally unproductive in that department. So if you could pray with me that the rest of this week would be fruitful and good, that would be so appreciated.

Hopefully the blogging will start up again soon — who knows, maybe even today. All I do know is that He who began a good work in me will be faithful to complete it… and even in the face of all my uncertainty and sin and fear, He is working difficult situations to the good.
