Why I Don't Blog Very Often

Because this happens and sometimes this happens... and this... and this... and sometimes this happens... So...

  1. It looks like you've been staying very busy! But i'm sure you're having a great time living life in those moments. The spilled paint made me laugh. Thank you for being real still. :)

  2. A picture is worth a thousand words. :) Ha! Good explanation ... I'd always rather you live completely for God, and wherever you are know you're all there while you're there, and hear about it later – 'cause God is always working, and no matter how long after the 'praise' occurs, He is enthroned on the praises of His people. :)

  3. Now there's the gifted lyricist I admire! Haha.

    A photo post is great! I forget to take photos and then end up trying to say how hilarious something looked and lamely end with '...I guess you had to be there'.

  4. Thanks so much, Sara. I am a busy mom of 4 so, in many ways, I get what you're saying. It was my birthday yesterday. Several times during the day I felt my mind being preoccupied with how I was going to "blog" about the day. Finally, I felt God gently nudging me, "Enough, already...just ENJOY the day with your family!" Good reminder...from both of you. :-)

  6. I LOVE the little man in goggles!!! Made me smile big! :)
    Loved your mini interview on KTIS about one scissor...God is lightening many of us of our loads for the journey ahead.
    Blessings as you press on.
    {Also LOVED The Reason at Bethel! Thanks for your testimonies, love to see God displayed!}

  8. Sara - I recently heard your interview on Soul 2 Soul in which you quoted Charles Sprague. I have searched and searched for that quote. Could you be so kind to send it my way? Thank you for your music - it is a healing balm.

  10. Could there be a better blog post? This is why you are so beloved, dear Sara, and why so many strangers call you a friend :) When I listened to the Director's cut of Invisible Empires...or I should say when I listen to (because I keep listening to it) my mouth dropped open when you talk about waiting in prayer for 2 years and wondering if you should do something else, go back to teaching, etc. Ahhhh! Because it is crystal clear to those of us who aren't you... that the beautiful art story you create & tell in your writing, your singing, your art house creating, your blogging (albeit sparse)is cold cold water to thirsty, weary souls. See, you give so much by way of your unfolding story to those who are listening, but you give even more, I think, to the artists who are listening...You carry the Artist who has yet to consider his/her's creativity in the realm of the Almighty, right into the Living Room of Heaven...every album and every concert, to me, has been entry into a new room in the (art) House where I have had the honor of sitting at your table, breaking bread with you, feeling the textiles and beauty of the room, hearing new sounds, new voices, remembering some of the rooms I have already visited...You are not just creating a physical Art House North, but you have been creating a traveling, live Art House since you began this singer/songwriter journey and shared it with the world from the beginning...My tour through the house over the years has been incredibly rich...it has the same feeling of when I was a little girl, racing up the stairs in my grandparents Chicago bungalow, discovering treasure upon treasure that told story after story of my mom and dad and aunts and uncles and grandparents and great grandparents...If I close my eyes tight and take a deep breath from the frenetic (that's one of your favorite words!)pace of life now, I can still hear the creaky wooden stairs and smell the musty sprawling attic that captured my young sojourner attention and opened up the mystery of God to me. Grandma and Grandpa sold the bungalow long ago, and it is now just a delightful memory for me. Your music and your story though, they are a traveling Art House that reveals the things of God, the richness and fullness of community with Him with every note and word and decision. Keep your eyes on the prize, Sara. Your Invisible Empire is one that is not invisible after all...

  11. Sara, your mom came by to look at the "Old House" you used to live at in Springfield. You came by when we were living in it and we are now renting it. A couple that had lived in it had totally abused it and me and my bible study group were helping us get it back together again when she came by. Do you have any old pictures of it? I would like to see them. We loved living there too. It was a good place for us to raise our kids. Now we are renting it or trying to sell it as I can't go up and down the stairs anymore.
