A few things i would want to discuss if we were having coffee together this morning...
1. i found this book of devotions again after we moved and it has become one of my favorites. i’d never read much spurgeon before, but i’ve always assumed he was more harsh than anything. what i’ve discovered is that i identify with him on a personal level... the way he writes about jesus... the way he writes about his humanity... i’ve found comfort and encouragement in these pages. now, the spurgeon in my imagination is a friend and mentor.
2. i’ve been grasping for control lately and failing miserably- fumbling through the last year of grief, pregnancy, postpartum, and newborn haziness. it’s been hard for my analyzer-thinker self to feel so unsteady. this must be why i’m so drawn to things which help me feel grounded- routines, woodsy oils, and my old, floppy esv bible.
3. this mug isn’t the cutest but it fits just right in my hands and is therefore one of my favorites. and, today, i achieved my perfect sweet to creamy ratio in my coffee. this makes me feel like i’m winning, even if nothing else goes right today.
“my hope lives not because i am not a sinner, but because i am a sinner for whom christ died; my trust is not that i am holy, but that being unholy, he is my righteousness. my faith rests not upon what i am, or shall be, or feel, or know, but in what christ is, in what he has done, and in what he is now doing for me.” -c. h. spurgeon
Day 16 of 90. you are the only thing standing in your way. you can change at any moment. you can be different at any moment. you can turn fear into faith at any moment!! believe it’s possible for you and it will happen. don’t believe me? try believing in yourself for 90 days and see what happens. don’t think you can last 90 days? *believe in yourself for 28 days with me.* don’t think you can believe in yourself for the amount? borrow my belief in you for 28, 90, 1 year, 5 years of days!!

Aveces quisiera frió, vivir en otro lugar, hablar otro idioma y caminar descalza. aveces quisiera estar sola mientras me acompaña alguien de la mano, dormir hasta tarde por que me dio la mañana escribiendo , aveces quisiera ser solo yo, un balcón, mi taza la vista y mi máquina de escribir, de esas antiguas que aún no encuentro. aveces quisiera no tener nombre y perderme entre uvas y tierra , hallarte en la nada mientras camino, sonreír, y regresar juntos a la cama. 🍇✍🏻
