Over the past few months, I’ve been feeling the “itch” return–the itch to get back into the discipline of writing. As I contemplated relaunching my blog, I decided it needed to be renamed. “April into the New Year” summed up where I was two years ago, but I’m in a completely different season of life today. Of course the biggest thing in my life these days is being newly married. On June 14th of this year, I married my best friend and the best man I’ve ever known, Jared. So “one” is made up of two: me and him, figuring out how to be “one flesh” as the Bible talks about, a profound calling indeed.
But in getting married I also realized that I will never be whole and complete if I simply rely on Jared to fulfill all of my needs. There’s another aspect to becoming “one”: finding my true center in God, the great “Three-in-One.” So maybe “one” is really made up of four: me and the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Or is “one” really five: me, Jared, and the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?
The math of the Trinity is confusing enough, let alone adding other things into the mix! However you count it, I’m on a quest to being “one”: a whole person, relying on God for my everyday existence, and in unison and unity with my incredible husband. I certainly won’t pretend to have all the answers, but I can promise to be honest along the way. My prayer is that you can discover something new about yourself as we journey together.
From one stumbling journeyer to the next,
