step one

I finally have it- my own creative space.  Thanks to a long holiday weekend, pushed-off projects were finally completed around our house and I now have a dedicated space of my own to write, dream, think, plan, organize, blog, and anything else my little heart desires.  It's a quiet space; a great space to get away to, and I am so appreciative of it.

And I'm not exactly sure what I am going to do in it....but I cannot wait to find out.

I've not blogged in a while because I've been more in "research" mode.  I've been gathering, reading, journaling, and it's all led up to feeling that God would have me take this space, take this time, to follow Him even though I'm not sure where He's leading.

I have come to realize that I don't have to see the whole journey in order to take the first step.

So it was with great vigor I cleaned out, organized, decorated, and prepared this lovely area that I can call my own.   I feel it's a first step to something, but I'm not sure to what.  I've learned enough about God to know that He will instruct me on step two when the time is right, and that for now, simply showing up is all that is required of me.

Thanks for joining me on my first voyage of using my new space.  Over an hour has passed and it's seemed like only minutes.  When we are doing what we love to do - when we love ourselves enough to let ourselves fully engage in what we love to do - joy fills the time and before we know it, it's time to go.

Thanking God for first steps.
