to everything there is a season


I want to keep my soul fertile for changes, so things keep getting born in me, so things keep dying when it's time for them to die. I want to keep walking away from the person I was a moment ago, because a mind was made to figure things out, not read the same page recurrently.

~ Donald Miller ~
from his book, Through Painted Deserts

I am so looking forward to something new. I don't have a specific in mind--just something new. Even a new idea would be a delight at this point.

Spring cannot come too soon for me.

"... not read the same page recurrently." How I wish I'd seen that in my youth, when stalked daily by depression, hearing the same damning words over and over in my head. Send this to everyone you know who is suffering from depression. Yeah, it might not help. But you never know.

Wanda, the image I receive when I read your words is of a seed, tucked just beneath the surface of the soil, barely cracking open, all its energy pushing the sprout toward the sun. Soon. Glory.
