Me & You & 22.

img_1690

Today…this 14th day of February…this day that celebrates love with chocolates and flowers and fancy dinners and kind words…on this day, I celebrate life. I celebrate the breath that God gave me and the beauty that He has surrounded my life with. This day marks 22 years of breath…of life…of adventure…of God’s goodness and grace.

.

This day of celebration looked different than normal. The day consisted of midterms and lectures. Family being over 650 miles away. A quiet house. But then I realized, a birthday isn’t meant to just celebrate a day, but it’s meant to celebrate those 364 other days that came before…the in-between days where passions were pursued…where mountains were conquered…where love was felt…where friends were made…where God was good…and where the messy taught the beauty of grace and inner strength.

.

This year will hold the beginning of a new season in life for me. The end of an academic journey (for now at least!)…the beginning of a lifetime career. It’s exciting and scary all at once. It’s a year of becoming, of truly learning to live out my calling, and learning what it is to be still in the quiet moments…just me & you, God and this year of being 22.

xoxo, Lindsey

  2. Beautifully written 💕 my heart aches to be there with you, to celebrate this day/weekend like we always have. But, I know there is good purpose for why this year is different and I’m blessed beyond measure to sit from afar and watch God continue His beautiful work in your life. 🙏 Love you so much. Happy birthday 🎈
