the view from the middle step…

If there is one thing that I’ve learned in this 31 days of stepping down, it’s that you can step so far down you find yourself in a muddy pit… wallowing.

I started this journey because I also knew that one can spend all summer trying to build herself up to the point that she needs to be knocked down a step or two.

I’ve been too far up

and I’ve been too far down

and I’m not crazy about either place

Today… I found the middle step. That place where peace resides. It’s directly under His wing and there is joy here.

Today, this step looked like a trip to be with my parents at the hospital awaiting further tests for my dad and later a trip home to a kitchen full of pumpkin seeds and pumpkin slime.

I think the view from this middle step will be different every day. I think I need to learn to be okay with that… because it’s a seat of trust. Trusting the One Who knows what each day holds and letting Him hold me.

I like this step.

I think I’ll stay awhile.

It feels just right!

I'd love to know what you think...
