The ambitions we have will become the stories we live. If you want to know what a person's story is about, just ask them what they want. If we don't want anything, we are living boring stories, and if we want a Roomba vacuum cleaner, we are living stupid stories. If it won't work in a story, it won't work in life."
"You know, a story is based on what people think is important, so when we live a story, we are telling the people around us what we think is important"
So this is what I really wanted to blog about but didn't. I am using the font Helvetica. Has anyone else seen that documentary??? I.LOVE.DOCUMENTARIES. I in fact, did not want to blog about the font, rather I wanted to blog about what I want. What I see. What I hope and desire for my life.
The picture above speaks to what I picture my weekends to look like. I want my community of friends and family at my home. I want to break bread together often. I want to be known by these people and I want to know them. I want to be a part of their stories and I want all of them to be characters in mine. I want to have quality food on my table. I want to know where that food came from and want to be a part of the process of growing it. I want my chairs not to match. I want to have worked hard to be able to afford to feed all of these people whom I love so dearly...which means I want my business to flourish. I want to show women how to walk in the beauty that they have been given, how to own that beauty and how not to pervert it through a booty short or showing way too much cleavage. I want women to be excited about their wardrobe, knowing that each piece that hangs itself on that wooden hanger is a visual representation of who they are and where they are going in life. I want these women know their worth. I want to continue to know my worth. I want to know what the Lord says about me. What HE feels about me. What HE speaks over me. I also want a man who is fully committed to that as well. Fully committed to the LORD and what HE says about him and us and our family. I want us to enjoy the same things in life. To have fun. Lots and lots of fun. To go on adventures. I want our life to be an even bigger and better story than just my little story alone. I want him to believe in our life as a story. A story in which the LoRD has the pen and is daily writing us into something grand. Something huge. Something that we can't do on our own. Something so big that it sounds silly. Just like Noah. I want to give a lot of things away. I want to travel the world and know people everywhere. I want to be a really great cook and wife and mother. I want to have lots of people whom I write to. I want to write a book. I want to continue to be filled with a confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. I want to be completely filled with joy and peace. (Romans 15:13).
This is what I wanted to blog about tonight. What do you want?
