Lovely Loneliness

This weekend has been a gift. Sometimes painful. Sometimes refreshing. I've written in my journal quite a bit and tried to be in touch with the real me and what my spirit is saying to me. I've
been alone. Completely alone. By choice. My spirit has longed for this.

I go between relishing in these times and hating these times. It's hard and I feel the need to nap. . . a lot. I'm opening myself up to the possibilities before me. Why is it we have to be vulnerable to be able to experience the next big "peg of growth?"

God, you're stuck with me,

Through the door...there is moonlight

In keeping with my new business name, Lila Moonlight (changed from Lila's Journey) new business cards were needed.

I've always been fascinated with doors and windows. When our family traveled to Europe several years ago, they'd have to wait on me as I busied myself taking pictures of windows and doors.

This business card seemed to suit my new name. Tell me what you think.

I'll close with some poignant door quotes...

The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live. ~Flora Whittemore

Be an opener of doors for such as come after thee. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.

My husband has been traveling quite a bit lately. First he went to NOLA for a mission trip and then to Atlanta for a conference. All total he was gone almost two weeks. While I love alone time, I sure missed him.

I did this collage the day he was returning. There's "me" down in the right bottom corner (Lila Moonlight) and him as a silhouette toward the top. The antique watch is on the road that leads him to me. Counting the minutes until he got home to me. All together now......Awwwwww.....

Next month we'll celebrate thirty years of marriage. It will be a celebration for sure! He's my best friend, my encourager, my counselor, my personal comedian and most definitely my better half. We've grown together so much so that we can complete thoughts for each other before they even come out of our mouths. Marriage hasn't always been easy, but there sure is cream on the other side. I'm so thankful for my love.

Bliss, bliss, bliss,
