January was a challenging month. Fresh on the heels of a fabulous Christmas holiday and a wonderfully restorative month of December, I hadn't expected to struggle last month.
I had plans. Ahem.
I am spending this week's writing time processing my way through January. Digging to understand January's highs and lows. There are some big things happening in my heart this week as I reflect about last month and press into some deep truths in my life. Truths about who I am and the life I am called to live.
Rooted in love to be set free.
I've given myself permission to take as long as I need to write my way through this which means the blog will be quiet for a few more days.
But I thought I should break the silence here and post something. A few photos will do.
I can't wait to come back with more words, though not in the anxious "my blog will suffer if I don't publish" kind of way. I feel remarkably at peace after a couple weeks of inner turmoil. I guess all that writing is actually helping. I'm sure the prayers of good friends don't hurt either.
By the way, I just want to mention that the Whole Food Kitchen workshop starts soon. Heather has re-worked the course with new recipes and new features. One of those new features is Kitchen Stories. You might want to register just for those stories alone! My contribution carries the same theme as what I'm writing through right now - rooted in love to be set free. Even in the kitchen.
Heather has generously offered FIMBY readers a $10 discount on the course. Just use coupon code fimby2013 at check out to receive that discount on your registration.
