it is not a waste of your life to spend your life letting Jesus teach you to love another well
There’s something about pre-dawn packing
getting in a cold car in the dark
shifting out of park
to drive down the street
to the exit
to the highway
turn on the news
then an audio book
and all that lies ahead
is a road.
I’m going somewhere
I’m on the road
I have a goal
I’ll stay in my lane
maybe pass through some rain
maybe stop for a latte
and a bite or two
but then I’ll get back
on the road

Hey, I'm Sheila, glad you're here.
A little about me: I'm a 40-something woman, wife, mom, RN, soap maker and wannabe suburban homesteader. I think better when I write. I've kept a journal since I was 9 and started blogging over 10 years ago.
I'm introverted, but I love people. I'm curious but shy. I'm contemplative and easily distracted. I feel deeply and know numbness. I want to make things right and I'm learning to let go. I wax poetic sometimes and often don't know what to say. It's complicated.
It boggles me that I am Christ's and he is mine. I gaze into the heavens and the Heaven-Maker's words, remember the hard things, fight depression, and long for home and King.
