Welcome to the Ramblings of my Crazy Wonderful

First things first. I'm not really a blogger. I really haven't had the time for it, nor the resources. For the past 8 years, we (my husband, kids and I) have lived overseas without reliable internet connection. Well, most of the time no internet connection at all in the middle of the rain forest.

Recently, I've had so much on my heart and mind as I try to navigate my way through many changes and heartaches. I need to somehow get these thoughts out of my head and on to paper, and somehow get some of these thoughts heard.

 Three kids finally asleep. So here I sit, alone in the dark, listening to music, praying to my Father, crying my tears, and learning how to feel His presence in my current situation all over again.

Starting this blog as an outlet, and hopefully an encouragement to others wrestling with some of the same thoughts and feelings. Maybe different circumstances, but the same struggle and the same God who hears us and seeks after us. The same Spirit who makes even the the groanings and longings of our hearts intelligible to Him when words fail us and we don't know how to pray anymore.

No commitments here to keep up with this blog. When I feel the need to post, I will. When I feel the need to let it go and focus my energies elsewhere, I will. No pressure is the only way I can roll these days. Thanks for reading along. Thanks for any words of encouragement you would like to leave in the comments.

With all that it goes. Welcome to the ramblings of this girl's life that I like to call...crazy wonderful!



  1. Love you and your words.
    I wish i was sitting with you while you cried but i get that sometimes alone to process time is really necessary

  2. This will good Sarah. Could not have said it better myself. I read something the other day that said, "Between a promise and a miracle". Right where I am at.
    Praying for you and just like the word says, "Iron sharpens iron".

  3. I'm thrilled for this blog, Sarah. I've been sharing in your journey from a distance for so many years and I'm so thankful to be so close now to continue in it together.

    1. Thanks Julie! I too, am so thankful to be closer now. I have so enjoyed having you around, and I'm encouraged by your faith and your love.
