Go Forth from the Fourth

June 4th, 2014 was the 4th anniversary of The Woodwife's Journal.  It's funny how life doesn't always go in the direction you planned at the time you thought it would.

It seems like every year when I think I'm going to take off and make this a great go to place for folks who share my interests, something happens that keeps me from doing that.  So the only conclusion I can come up with is that now is not the time.

I've finished my homeschooling career and have raised two beautiful, godly daughters who are such blessings to me.  I thought this would be the year, but alas, not to be at this time.  I directed a play that took up a lot of time last fall which i enjoyed greatly, My daughter got engaged and planned a spring wedding, no problem at all but still kinda took over the spring, my mom's illness has escalated and I'm caring for her, sometimes 24/7, until she's better.  That's the new reality and where I'm living for now.

But someday, when I grow up, I'm going to take this blog and my herbal career to the place God has planned for me.  And until then, I will not pray for patience because I know He might test me...and test me....and test me until I'm ready for what He has in mind.  He's like that you know...always a sense of humor.

Meanwhile, I'm sitting here, near the summit of the mountain where I grew up, just remembering and dreaming in between things I'm here to do.  The mountain laurel is nearing it's blooming peak and the bees are buzzing, the birds singing, as gentle breezes blow me back to days of yore when this mountain forest was filled with indians, pirates, villians, princesses and knights...wait!  I think I just heard someone calling me from that thicket!

  1. Sharon, I can so relate to your dilemma. You are making good choices tough to prioritize your family. May God bless you and this article I read earlier this year has strengthened me almost daily.

    1. Thank you, Jennifer! I think that article was written just for me! :)
