Come, Saltillo Sunrise

Bits and pieces of part of my little life are falling about me today. Not in a necessarily bad way... no, they're coming together, it seems... those tangents and fragments of my heart that I've held close to my chest except for the times I've unclenched my fists to show them to my heavenly Father and cry, "But what about this? What about this?" I'm blessed, but I'm among pieces this morning. Emotional day.

Looking forward to a week of climbing around the Zapalinamé mountains and breathing in the Saltillo sunrise. Just look at it. There are no words. I think I'm holding my breath until the moment I can plant my feet alongside one of those rocks and lift my face to that burning-away night sky.

Thanks for all the tenderhearted comments and blogging support as of late. You're the best, really. So I'm sure you'll understand why I'm signing off, except for a Monday Moment, for the next week or so. Sorry to leave you like this, but know you're in the knapsack of prayers I'm hoisting along with me into those mountains. And I'll be back, Lord willing, with some amazing things to show and share.

Until then, my love. -B

I just discovered your blog the other day and love, love, love it. I too have been feeling a little "piecy" lately; I've been doing a lot of praying about it, and the truth is your blog has really helped me achieve some peace in my own life. Thanks for sharing so much of your life...it's comforting to me to know that there are others out there that appreciate among other things the wonder in a raindrop, the comfort of a summer cobbler, and the love of our savior. Keep up the good work! You are inspiring...Gracias miss Brin

Is it in the air?? I too feel somewhat 'other' lately.
I wish you a restful holiday, Brin. 'Put your trust in the Lord..He doeth all things well'.

We'll all miss you while you're away, Brin. I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing, and exciting time.

I know what it's like to have pieces of one's life fall apart, too. And I've discovered that God is the only one who can pick them up, put them back together, and make something beautiful of them. He has for me, and I know He'll do the same for you.

God bless you,
Lindy :)

Hope you have a blessed vacation! May God bless you with a great time and traveling mercies! Come back soon...

Feeling the same way, Brin. But remember, God doesn't want us to be in a rut, but trying new things and leaning on HIM for our strength and security. I can't wait to see what He does next in your life!!!

Have a refreshing time, Brin, and we'll see you when you get back. I'm busier now since I started a fulltime job, but hope to still be able to pop by & see you. I always enjoy my visits here with you.

Ouch! Do I know these words and have I felt these very emotions!!! It hurts me just to read those words as I've walked those shoes little girl and my thoughts and my prayers are with you. Keep dreaming of Oct 15th...63 days till the high seas.

A friend forwarded me your blog and I truly enjoy reading it. I long to be on a piece of land and get back to digging and growing.

My husband is from Saltillo and just returned with some fabulous photos of the mountains. http://picasaweb.google.com/cuzamora/CarlosMexico2007/photo#5096767248045958338 I look forward to our visit next year.
