I think I need a little more simple in my life. I realize I've been away from this little blog for almost a month - something rather unusual for me. But I have to tell you that my job is anything but simple right now. In fact it's complex...draining...overwhelming.
I think that's why I've been away. By the time the day's over there's not a lot of creativity left, not to mention energy, words or inspiration. I'm just tired.
But the thing about working for a church is that even when it's demanding, and anything but simple, it's good. It's worth everything. And that's something worth fighting for.
So right now, I may not have a pretty post about a freshly decorated room, or the latest and greatest decor idea that everyone will want to pin...but I do have simple. Good 'ole fashion chocolate chip cookies will do wonders for the soul on even the most trying of days.
So if you're walking through something intense, something scary or sad or draining, my advice to you is get back to the basics. Take a deep breath...let it all go...whip up a batch of cookies...and embrace the simple.
