“Now his life is full of wonder but his heart still knows some fear of the simple things he cannot comprehend…” — John Denver, Rocky Mountain High I have known many homes, some for long stretches of time, others for just a handful of months. Each move is its own sort of pilgrimage, embarking from comfort into the unfamiliar until the unfamiliar becomes home again. Place has become a marker of formation for me, like cairns on a mountain trail.
“I slowly let go of any guilt and started practicing astonishment.” Love the way you write. This line in particular will be sticking with me for awhile.
Sarah, your words startle me and cause me to see your thoughts. Thank you for sharing you.
This is a beautiful reflection friend. I’m grateful for our friendship that was so timely for me as well in my own season of wandering--miss you already and praying the next chapter is one full to the brim with absolute FLOURISHING for you and for Jordan. 💕
