I will start the story here, but this is not where the story begins.
I was recently talking with my older son Noah about why he carries two different small notebooks in his back pocket.
He said, “It’s because I may have one thought that goes in this notebook and another that goes in this one.”
I then ask, “Why don’t you just keep one and write all your thoughts in one book?”
He said, “I don’t know, I haven’t figure myself out yet.”
I left it at that. But I should have told him I understand because I have two blogs I write in. I guess I haven’t figured myself out yet either.
I have one blog called Love and Wonder. It is where I write about the things God is teaching through Motherhood, being married and owning an Art gallery with my husband in Downtown Fullerton. It is where I discovery through Art and Everyday Life.
Then I have another called Story and Wonder. It is where I write about things God is teaching me as I make my way as the Kids Director. It is where I discovery through the wonder of kids and faith.
Recently I felt the struggle of the two. I was writing in one more than the other and feeling frustrated. Which then I ended up not writing at all.
So I took sometime to see what was the commonality of the two. The one thing that was in common was that God was using all these things to teach me. God is using motherhood, married life, owning an art gallery, finding my way as an artist and working with kids to teach me more about His Love, other people, and myself.
So I have decided to combine the two blogs into one. I will continue to write about things whether it be learning from my boys, learning what it means to live in a marriage, learning from an artist who may or may not have a different world view than me or sitting close enough to a child to catch the wonder of it all. Here is where I can be open to hear God through all the parts of my life.
This is where the two roads come together.
This is where the two become one.
Love, Story and Wonder is the new blog.
