Words Blooming Forth

My words have been coming slowly as of late.

Or perhaps my mind pushes them out of the way.

I can't fully blame my schedule, family, or situation. For somehow I trapped the words inside, and their song dulled down. Down, down, down. Later, later, later.

But words never die. They rarely remain silent for long. They may go underground for a spell, but this makes them grow stronger roots for the upcoming blossom.

My words are blooming forth again, I can feel it.

Lovely tree I found at one of the camps this summer


Words, I give you the freedom to come out now. Soul, Jesus is your freedom to rest and breath, even when the body is hard at work. Mind, you can let go now and embrace the now. Body, even you can find the balance between work and play. Heart, prepare now. Dig deep roots. Grow a bloom that can only come from God. Strength, you can lean into Jesus.

Can you feel it? The words inside of you? They are digging into your soul and bringing up something beautiful. They may seem quiet right now, but words never die.

They bloom.

Still lovely flowers I found at a different camp this summer

I really want to apologize right now for my accidental blog vacation. But to apologize detracts from the lesson that I learned. Sometimes, words come slowly. Sometimes, I have to wrestle with the words too busy before I can do anything else.

I can say this with absolute certainty, though.

I REALLY REALLY MISSED Y'ALL AND BLOGGING AND READING BLOGS AND GAH BASICALLY ALL OF IT!!! (except for technical issues. Those I can go without.)

Although I haven't been active blogging, I've been quite active in many other places in life. Namely, I went on a mission trip!!! I worked in Indiana for a week, and it opened my soul to a new level of boldness and selflessness. More on that in the future. For now, I just want to say I'm back. And I've realized in this blog break how much I appreciate each and every one of you! Blogging has become such an intricate part of my life, that I went a little crazy without it, even for just a few weeks!

Comment below what you've been up to this summer! And do you ever feel the words of your soul dig deep only to bloom forth?

BUNCHES OF LOVE AND CHOCOLATE YOUR WAY!

p.s. I guest posted on the MOST AMAZING BLOG (which is Abbie's blog, duh) a couple of weeks ago in case you didn't see it. (If you commented, I recently went back and replayed to them all. It came out during my mission trip and I couldn't reply to all of them.) And since words never die, go give it a read and a late comment. Right now I'm all about those late comments considering I'm catching up from a month's worth of posts!

p.p.s. Also, exciting stuff coming your way from Freckled Minds, a new creative movement I've had the honor of being a part of so far! Go check out the new site and dance around in excitement about the things coming from this spectacular initiative!

  4. Hey, Hannah! Eep, even from reading just that first part of your post, I already love how you write. I'm kind of in that same boat right now. Trying to get back into writing once again, trying to narrow down the focus of my book, trying to really breathe and write the words that are meant to be written. <3

    Glad to have you back, girl!

    1. Autumn, thanks bunches! The trip went well, but this whole summer actually has been teaching me the step-by-step, real-life, interruptible type of following Jesus that is really exciting in a normal kind of way.
