Everything and Nothing

Everything has changed and nothing is different.

We now have a son- he is alive in another world, very much ours. God knew before he was even conceived he would be an Allen. Someone else is taking care of him today, feeding him, helping him get dressed and hopefully teaching him to dance. :)

But today I drove carpool and started laundry and drank coffee, just like every other day.  Nothing's different but everything has changed.

Publishers and agents have my visions in their hands and may want to do something with all my dreams.  They want me to write and create and do ministry in ways I never considered.

But today I drove carpool and started laundry and drank coffee, just like every other day.  Nothing is different but everything has changed.

About a year ago we signed over every piece of our life.  And God surprisingly took us up on our offer, stretching us out and dividing us up and giving us away in small and big pieces.  Like we took the red pill and jumped in the rabbit hole and there is no going back and everything is familiar but nothing is the same.  Our coffee cup lives turned into spinning teacups.

And though nothing has been easy, I feel so full, so sure, so alive.

For His name's sake, for His kingdom to come,

nothing is that different but everything has changed.
