The beginning of the end

It's the end of my last day of being twenty-eight... the beginning of the end of my twenties. How surreal this is, that a whole decade of my life could fly by so quickly. I think after turning twenty-five (when the "beginning of the end" really starts to loom ahead), I developed this dread of Thirty. You who are there know what I'm talking about. I'm not going to lie, it's not completely gone, but I'm coming to a place where I'm almost ready to embrace it. I plan on living this last year of my twenties to the fullest, instead of dragging my heels into the next decade of my life. And I plan on doing that, in part, through writing.

Yes, after all that insistence that I wouldn't start a blog, that it was too much upkeep, here I am. It just seemed like it was time to branch out, beyond facebook. Imagine that, a world of writing beyond facebook... I think I can muster the imagination for that.

I invite you to join, or continue with me, on this journey. I don't know in what ways, but I just know this is going to be a good year. I'm confident, because God is good and I am eager to taste more of that goodness this year. I hope you'll also taste of His goodness through my writing. May you have eyes to see how inexhaustibly creative, gracious, patient and resourceful He is, to craft such beauty out of the rubbish of life.


  1. Amber! I am so glad you are doing a blog. I look forward to reading it and know that it will be a source of re-focusing my sometimes chaotic days, as it already has done today. Love you, Annie

    B-Ber,this is where you are headed way ahead of time. My goodness I recall 28, 29, 30 ...
    You realize so much more, than so many, as far as insight to life.
    I am just now beginning, my begining and I'm excited.

    Glad I am now learning what you already understand.
    God's plan has a different timetable for each of us.
