I’m on a journey through life. It has people and adventures, travels and wanderings, love and loss. I’m the spontaneous, planned one. I’m the writer and the reader.
This blog is not a best seller, but it’s a little insight into my world.
I hope you enjoy, laugh, and even cry along the way with me. Even more, I hope you see a glimpse into the world of a girl living by the grace of God.
I chose “Steeped in Sunshine” from Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist:
“Spring flew swiftly by, and summer came; and if the village had been beautiful at first, it was now in the full glow and luxuriance of its richness. The great trees, which had looked shrunken and bare in the earlier months, had now burst into strong life and health; and stretching forth their green arms over the thirsty ground, converted open and naked spots into choice nooks, where was a deep and pleasant shade from which to look upon the wide prospect, steeped in sunshine, which lay stretched out beyond. The earth had donned her mantle of brightest green; and shed her richest perfumes abroad. It was the prime and vigour of the year; all things were glad and flourishing.”
More than Dickens poetic description – and my love for a well-steeped tea – I know all too much how the sun and the seasons can affect moods and emotions. I think rain or shine, snow or sleet, our lives have the opportunity to feel steeped in all the sunshine life has to offer us. We can live each day as if it’s the sunniest, most perfect day there ever was, and that’s how I want to live: Steeped in Sunshine.
