the overflow

Pinned Image
Yes, you're in the right place {I hope.. that would be disappointing}. Ahh, I'm so excited. So here it is. The Overflow: of my thoughts, His blessings and everyday graces. I've been pondering this one for a long time, and just couldn't come up with anything that really "fit." And then I'm driving up the mountain to Mentone, thinking about how happy I am and telling a friend that I was overflowing with excitement. Duh, Kelsie. There you go. 

So--we now have The Overflow. And I feel like it fits me pretty perfectly. That's what this blog has been to me for the past {almost} two years. Luke 6:45 tells us that From the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks. Fitting, or fitting? So no, I'm not giving you the leftovers--I'm giving you what's coming from my heart. When I have something on my mind, I come here to "overflow" it to all of you. When I get big news or have a funny story, I come here. When I'm worried or anxious, I usually come here and read YOUR posts. And it's been the best therapy that money could buy. 

I'm excited. I had kind of lost sight of what I was doing lately--here and in life. As alone as I feel sometimes in my one bedroom apartment with so many of my friends not in Starkville anymore, I've never felt as aware of Him as I have the past few months. And it has taught me that He is going to provide. I've learned so much about listening to Him and letting Him love me, and then I drive to Mentone and that's what our friend Carlyle talked about all weekend. It just makes me smile. So here is too waking up and being present to what's going on around me. Here's to a new beginning. 

And  a new name just deserves a fresh start, right? It's still in the works, but we're getting there. So--here it is. And if you caught me in the middle of editing last night, bless your sweet heart.
