Small thought 9/1

One of the shaping influences over the lives and writing styles of those who have experienced events that were hard to communicate or legitimize in the eyes of others is the desire to simply say things as they are, regardless of whether you say them best. Being perfect at what you do may not be as important as allowing the truth of what your experiences have been to exist within it’s own breathing room. I care less about the typos than I do the words that are being spoken, and I can see that same focus in many people who read this blog. Perhaps it’s because of the typos.  🙂

I am a second-grade teacher and pastor-to-be who loves people. I spend my weekends with friends or wandering the museums of DC alone and with a journal, trying to put words on the places of the soul that still feel wordless. I spent most of my days at school trying to learn patience through my students and running on sheer nerdy passion. I follow Jesus Christ, and savor that as my most important identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
