Breaking away from what we've always known can feel like such a big deal, can't it? I have known it was time to start a new blog for over a year now, but I just never took the plunge. In the spirit of seizing the day, today I've put my big girl panties on and done it. What a breath of fresh air!
Here is where I hope you'll feel like you've been swallowed by the world's most comfortable couch. Where you kick your shoes off and take a deep breath. Where you sip on the hope of the personal God and find the deep refreshment your soul is longing for. Where you can find a friend who doesn't have it all together and is okay when you don't either. Where my every day life can maybe inspire yours. Where you and I can connect and discover we share more than we thought. Where pressure, expectations and noise get checked at the door.
The source of hope and beauty found here at cHOPEcaptured is solely the gift of my Daddy -- you might know Him, but just in case you don't, He's the God of the Universe. Daddy makes life like a 3D card -- just popping off the page! He is personally involved in my moments, patiently and faithfully teaching me trust as I slowly and more fully turn to Him. He is the one encouraging me, even asking me, to share with you here! If that seems weird to you, I get it. And it's okay. But He already knows you like the back of His hand and would love the chance for you to know Him too! Photography and writing are my tools of sharing. To not share would have me grouchy and sort of constipated inside. You don't want to see that -- but sometimes you might!
If you want to sail through the days looking for hope, why don't you plan to stick around? I'm not sure where the waters will take us, but I know it will be a grand adventure!
