it is not a waste of your life to spend your life letting Jesus teach you to love another well
there’s a dancer
In me there’s a hospital builder
a wound washer
a home maker
a child discipler
In me there’s a shepherdess
In me there’s a warrior
a strong-armed carrier
In me there’s a companion
a queen on her knees
making way for the weak
In me there’s a servant
a diligent worker happy to labor till the day
her King scandalously bows to say
“Well done. Be seated. Let me serve you, my beloved.”
Christ, in me. My hope of glory.

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.
