Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
Philippians 1:6

i am.

i am a writer and i am anxious
i wonder how things will turn out
i hear the way it could be
i see world changers - i am one
i want to know where to go and what to do
i am a writer and i am anxious

i pretend my life is a movie
i feel ready
i touch the future
i worry i'm not ready
i cry about everything
i am a writer and i am anxious

i understand that God is in control
i say God is in control
i dream of all He has in store
i try to remember He is in control
i hope i can be a part
i am a writer and i am anxious

Your poem is beautiful. I loved it.

And I can so relate to your conflicting feelings of being away from your baby. I always struggled with that so much. I just think it is so wonderful that you and Jenny (and your other friends) write out your feelings, thoughts, and daily happenings as they happen. How wonderful for Ellie to some day be able to read all this and realize how much she is loved and cherished and what wonderful parents she has. They do grow up so very fast--the time just flies by. I am so glad to see ya'll treasuring every moment.

He IS in control, and He has you and ellie and landon in the center of His hands...far away from the edges...
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.
Phil 4:6
