Time for a Change


As some of you know my roommate/good friend Christina and I just moved out of our darling home in Multnomah Village. We moved into a Condo and we are in the process of making it feel like home. It is a wonderful space and I feel so fortunate and blessed to be able to live there. We still have unpacked boxes laying places and not one thing is hanging yet on my walls, but regardless it was time for a fresh start.

The picture above was from yesterday morning on my balcony. I was sitting by the fire reading my Bible and sipping coffee when I looked up and out of nowhere splashes of hot pink, orange, red and purple appeared. A smile painted my face instantaneously. Isn't it fascinating how dark the world can be, and then so suddenly you start to see the light and the beauty. I think life works a lot like the setting and rising of the sun. Life can be good for a season, it can be great even! However it won't last. We are not promised happiness. Sometimes the sun has to set and the darkness has to come, but with certainty we know the sun will surely rise again.

Our condo reflects this imagery, and it was time for a change. For both of us.

Can't wait for our place to be all set up, and for dinner parties to commence. So here's to the sun rising again, as I know it will!

Love and Not Missing the Lessons in Life

  1. This is a very inspiring post, Katie! So, how's it going with you living in your new condo? I hope all is well. I love the photo that you shared. You sure have a really nice view from your place, and it must be so wonderful to wake up there every morning. Anyway, I wish you and Christina good luck on everything! :-)
