I had been praying for mentors for the longest time and he's given them to me in authors, bloggers, local women's leaders, and new friends and for the first time in a long time I know who I want to be.
There's a lot of dust in our lives right now. It feels almost like a bomb went off in our transition back to Midwestern life and another one when I began working outside the home. It's confusing, cloudy and we don't know what to say about it all yet. I think we're in the 2nd stage of culture shock, or for us re-entry culture shock. It's time for us to dig through our Delta souls and our Midwestern DNA and figure out what we want to keep and what to sweep up.
Some days it's all I can do to say, "I'm listening, I'm tired, I'm here Lord. Let that be enough."
Jesus, be with all my friends who draw near here at Redeeming Her. May your presence be sweet and strong and may you fill them up. Amen. Love you, Rachel.
