Good afternoon, all! I’m very excited to start this writing journey again…It has been awhile since I sat down and devoted intentional time to penning (typing?) my thoughts, but since Baltimore has been covered with around 2 feet of powdery precipitation, what better time to start than now? It is my hope/goal to post here at least once a week. Posts may take the form of poetry or a journal entry, but my prayer is for this to be the place where my Savior and what He has gifted me with–the ability to express myself AND lift others up–meet. Here you have it, folks: A little Paper, Ink, and Jesus.
A little about me: I am 28 years old and currently employed as an assistant teacher in West Baltimore. I am also about halfway through a bachelor’s degree in what was supposed to be English, but which may turn out to be much more. I love to read/write, anything remotely French, serving in the house where I’ve been planted (Destiny Harvest Church, Columbia, MD–whoop whoop!), decadent food, teaching my kindergarteners, putting miles on my Honda, and spending time with my friends and family. I am an only child, but God has blessed me with incredible “siblings” and covenant friends that challenge me and love me beyond reason. Life is good.
Here is my plan: As I am growing in Christ and learning snippets about His plan for me, I am also finding that there are parallels between a lot of what we go through as human beings and our walk with Christ. Being the English major that I (currently) am, my mind works best when it can pinpoint allegories and connections. Rarely is what you see just what meets the eye. As I learn more about how God manifests Himself, I just want to bring you along on the journey–through work, through love, and through trials. I hope you enjoy what you read and can apply it to your life somehow.
That being said, allez, viens!…lets go!
