In Our Caves

 I've been sitting here since 9:30 this morning, and just now stopped to make a bite of dinner at 8 PM.

I don't know how to explain what's happening right now, but the words just keep flowing and I can't help but write. 

Thankfully, both Dave and I are content in our "caves", writing away as the Lord dictates what's on His heart.

Sometimes I come in and find Dave in complete darkness, except for the blue of his screen! He says he doesn't even notice when the sun goes down, so intent on writing that everything else is tuned out.

It's a blessing though to have each other nearby for consultation and read-throughs. Somehow I've written 32 pages just today. Dave's good about stopping what he's doing and reading to give me feedback.

I'm not quite ready to say what I'm writing. It's completely "other" from what I thought I'd be writing.

But there's no mistaking that it's what the Lord's put in my heart. My fingers can hardly type fast enough as I get His words coming down to me at a rapid pace all day long.

Thank you for praying. And thank you for being patient with us if you're not hearing anything from us. We're trying to stay on task and keep going until He tells us to stop.

I can't say that I'm not loving it though! I do!! This is something I've dreamed of, writing from morning til night. So it's not at all a dreadful thing, though I do feel a depth of responsibility as I write, knowing it's God's story that He's pressing on me.

Hope someday it'll be published! But for now, just have to keep writing.


  1. Thanks for coming out of your cave for a bit to talk with us! :D Excited to debrief with you in person in a couple weeks! ;)

  2. Oh, also, I absolutely love how manly Dad's cave looks, and how feminine your nook is. Perfect!

  3. Three words: love, LOve, LOVE!!!
