MIA...that's me!

Dear Heart...
What a long strange trip it's been:) And what a year 2012 turned out to be. like the above painting i did and the one in the post below, i have felt so open and free to being FILLED up and completely surrendering to God's will in my life. Along the way He reassued me as I closed many doors and gave up on a dream or two.  God provided many opportunities to grow and yes He did stretch me a bit... well a lot. At times it hurt a little..well a lot, but looking back it was an awesome year and I continue to be in awe of God's generousity.
i have many goals for 2013 and hope to connect here in this place more often. to continue to share my heart and creative spirit remains a hearts desire but i also hope to build bridges with people who share that calling.
To stay rooted in my goals and wishes for the new year my reminder word is GROUNDED. I want to continue to surrender and be grounded in God's word and will for me. I spent so many years of my life soaring, exploring, and discovering myself. I get the picture of who i am and what i have to offer. i want to stay grounded and content in who that is and remain open to what God would like to do with me.
i am inspired by each of you and feel so much support! it is humbling as i see many of you struggle and grow with such grace and freedom. If you have a word that inspires and nurtures your 2013 journey...what is it? I would like to stop by and support you in that mission.
If you don't have a mission for the new year...maybe it's because God has you in a similair place that i found myself in and growing, completely surrendered and totally wiped out. If brave cause it is the beginning of a transformation. Be easy on yourself because it's a first step on a long road. I would like to be there to encourage you. Remember, we don't always have to soar...sometimes we need to land.
thanks for being a soft place for me to land:)


  1. Sweet, Jill, I have missed you and your voice! When I saw your fb post today... congratulations... I thought I would hop over here to see if you have posted. So happy to see you did! Love hearing about your word for the year. Mine is 'with'. I have been posting on Mondays with quotes where the 'with' means something and my thoughts. I hope to continue it throughout the year. I would love to hear more about what you have been up to. Would you like to do a typing skype chat sometime? :)

  2. I was so happy to see your post on FB and to see your comment on mine!! I am FB messaging you about something I've been thinking about...

  3. How did I miss your post? I'm pretty sure I know the reason and its called being too busy. I know this is going to be a great year for you. I think for me, I need to learn to listen.....listen for God's direction. So happy to find your post and I look forward to more. Hugs to you
