I know. It’s been a week.

Even when I had my tonsils out I continued to blog.

But apparently when I live in another first world country, I can’t fit it into my schedule.

[That’s not truly the reason.]

Here’s the thing. I’m processing so many things. I feel like the dryer of my soul has been tumbling my thought laundry constantly for the last few days (weeks?). And things in there are getting HOT. [I have stretched that analogy as far as it will go, but I used it in my journal too, so it makes sense in my head.]

I can’t write about it publicly. Well, I guess it’s more that I don’t want to, just to be honest. God and I are working through some majorly great and challenging stuff, but I’m not ready to talk about it.

Just know that when God opens up doors for you to step out and be brave, He takes you, moves you, pushes you, changes you, and loves you.

Do it.

When you get the chance, do it.

If you want the chance, ask for it.

So now to a few great pictures from the trip…

North Berwick from the top of The Law
Esther & I with fancy nails
Super Bowl gathering... at 11:30pm.
Sweet Elliot & my hair looks weird.
Edinburgh Castle with The Civil Wars in my ears
Tom adding some pizazz to his popcorning.
I like the Royal Mile. A lot.

Also, I wrote a post today over at (in)courage. It happened a while ago, but it still feels pretty near to my heart. I hope you get the chance to speak truth IN LOVE. It makes all the difference.
