Day 3027 – Thanks Past Jennilyn – or – Wowie I’ve Blogged A Long Time!

I’m roughly at the halfway point of reviewing my 6+ years of blog posts. It’s taking time, but it’s been an amazing journey. I can see how much I’ve grown. I can see how much I shared, and how much I kept back. It’s reminding me of times I drank, it’s reminding me of many, many things.

Today, I read a post about uncertainty, and fog. It was so applicable to what I’m experiencing today, I wanted to reshare it.

As I drove to church today, the fog was incredibly thick, I could only see about four car lengths in front of me. It got me thinking about how God sometimes keeps us in a fog.

I noticed that I could always see the stop lights in time as well as the brake lights of the cars in front of me. I was always informed of the immediate danger.

The drive to church is a very lovely one. There are sweeping farms, glorious foliage and animals galore. Sometimes, all of this is very distracting. The fog kept me focused just on the road ahead of me.

It struck me how God sometimes gives us a time of fog to protect us from what’s going on around us. While it could have been a very claustrophobic thing, I found it very comforting.

If you’re in a fog, maybe God is protecting you from a distraction…

‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
