I guess one of the few benefits of being back in the US is that there are libraries I can visit and enter into worlds and refuges that I have missed for so long.
It has been a while since a post of any substance and a couple weeks since a post at all. Just started my new job as a case manager and it has been a whirlwind experience of learning the computer, laws, and other boundaries that define the job role. I also don’t have solid internet at my parent’s house so internet is hit or miss – thankfully I come in a little early now that I finally got a vehicle so I can sneak some Mac updates and a little internet time in before I start work for the day. Hopefully as time advances and things stabilize I’ll have some inspiration for writing and I’ll find a reliable and consistent internet connection.
Three months ago, if you asked me, I would have told you that if you really loved someone, you’d let them go. But now I look at you, and I dreamed about Maggie, and I see that I’ve been wrong. If you really love someone, Allie, I think you have to take them back.
To understand the Twilmish, though, is to understand that in a mere moment, all can be saved or lost, an ingenious idea can be born, a kingdom can fall, love can grow, and life can discover its meaning.
Not sure how long I am going to be able to keep posting, life is both currently empty and full and I am running out of steam for an online presence. Hopefully I’ll get some clarity soon.
There have been days I’ve felt as if I could only pray, “Will you forget me forever?” Maybe you feel that’s overdoing it. Perhaps you’d say, “Well, maybe you should pray for something else. It sounds like you’re expecting God to do your bidding!” Maybe. But I wonder if you’d be as quick to say so to a brother or sister struggling with addiction, praying 10 years for relief, longing for a wandering child, or to a congregation fearful of its doors closing.
