So Very Long...

It's been so very long since I've written anything at all for songs I sing. I can't tell you how much I've missed it. Somehow along the way, though, I've lost that spark that makes words leap readily from my pen or my fingers dance across the keyboard. I know that someday my heart will sing through my fingertips once again, but for now, it is slow going. More than anything else I appreciate the patience others shower on me since I can't seem to find any for myself.

Life has been a whirlwind these past few months. Sarah, my beloved Sarah, was happily married in Florida at the end of December. Seeing her happiness, being a part of something that has been a dream of hers for so very long, is something I will never forget. She has always been my kindred spirit, confidant, and best of friends...Sarah, I treasure you.

Along with all of the craziness that seems to go hand in hand with out-of-state wedding planning, we have once again picked up roots and moved--this time all the way to North Carolina from Michigan. Being the second move we've made in six months, yes, things have been more than a little harried, but now that we are mostly settled in, I can't tell you what a peace I have in my heart about being here. It's the right place for us right now...it really is.

I can't promise how often I will really be able to update songs I sing with new posts, but I can promise that I will try. I've found how easy it is to lose sight of yourself in the losing of someone you love. But I'm working on it. Some days it is more of a struggle than others...but at least I'm trying. I find that is what is really most important.

Much love,
Emily

Oh lovely Emily, the words do seem to still dance off your fingertips-- as least in this post, your magic is still there! I do know what is it like to not to want to write, though. I'm glad you've found a place to call home, and pray that God will grant you His peace. I know we've never met, but I have been touched by you, and yes, still lift you and your family up in prayers whenever I think of you. We're all patiently waiting for your words, whenever you feel ready to write them. Much Love!

It sounds like you are on your way.

I've thoroughly enjoyed another visit to your blog - I always find inspiration.

I was interested to hear of your move. I live in North Carolina - near Wake Forest. If you're anywhere in the area I would love to meet you someday. Tea? Coffee? Feel free to email me - elizabethdaming@yahoo.com
