Update and Exciting Announcements

Hi Friends!  Or whoever still pays attention to this very neglected space.  2019.  Oof.  It's been a weird year.  This is literally the second post on 3-Fold Cord this year.  And it's the first time you've heard from me in almost 2 years.  I can't tell you how many times I had 5 or more ideas floating around my head that I wanted to flesh out into a post.  But somehow, it hasn't happened.  Call it busyness, laziness, or a lack of commitment, I will admit to any of them.  The last 4 years have been full of both changes and also much of the same. 
This year has been a strange for me.  In January Mark declared it would be THE year and it has definitely not been THE year I was expecting.
  



In 2019 my mother died after suffering from Early Onset Alzheimer's for 13 years.  I also started a new job, decided I hated it as much as the last one, and quit that job.  I'm in the process of launching a freelance writing business and am finding so much joy in putting words on the screen again.  In 2019 we celebrated 9 years of marriage, rejoiced in my dad being cancer free, attended a few concerts and one beer fest. We sipped great wines, studied the Bible and grew in love- the 3-fold cord is strong. This year I also buried two grandmothers, became a great aunt, our cats, Gemini and Tulip turned 12 and 1 respectively, and I spent another 12 months in the unfulfilled longing to become a mother.

Every year is filled with both trials and triumphs and at year end I often focus on the joy and blessings- this year I'm determined to do the same.   I've heard Jesus speaking to me through tough lessons and I feel finally ready to let go of my stubbornness and open myself open His lessons and accept my soul is still in need of refining.    

I could talk about the wayward path that has brought me here today and bemoan my bad luck, but I've come to realize, that even if the path is long and windy, there is purpose in traversing it. Through this change in my attitude to God's lessons, I've decided to stop hammering away jobs I'm not really good at, hoping to manifest financial blessings through shear belief and hope (all while being unfulfilled).  Through my career, I've had jobs I've loved and jobs I've hated.  I'm finally ready to stop compromising and pursue something I'm excited about.  I'm in the process of launching a freelance writing business and I'm finding so much joy in putting words on the screen again.  

So my dear readers (if there are any of you left), I wanted to let you know that I'm back and that you can expect to hear from me often.  I'll be updating this site weekly and you can also find me writing over on Medium.  

Let me know if you or someone you know is in need of content for your business!
Please also let me know what your current creative pursuits are and where I can find them- I would love to be inspired by you!
