Questions about life that I am trying to answer:
– How to live authentically…what does that even mean really? For some reason I feel l like it’s only attainable after I have a little house, with a garden, chickens, old Persian rugs, and a perfectly fulfilling job and friends. How do you live authentically where you are with what you have?
– In what ways does God show himself? What do I believe of Him? How do I learn about Him? What does that mean in my day-to-day life? How does he help the individual answer the hard questions about life?
– Why am I so afraid to let go and truly, unabashedly love? Why do I block parts of myself off?
Things I’d like to grow:
-Lemons for preserves
