punk sunset


my bible flipped open to job 38 a few days ago, the part where God finally speaks, and asks job some questions. It struck me as I was reading that we have a Papa who lets us ramble on for 38 chapters out of a 42 chapter book. even when we don't know what we're talking about, even when we're ticked, and confused and covered in ash. he's listening; he's there. he cries with us. he shakes his fists at the sky with us.

but then he speaks.


my heart is still back in the messy purples and pinks that was this sunset. i almost typo'd pink with punk. punk sunset. ok i'll stop. 

we're back at our little house tucked in the valley, and it's beautiful and it's summer and i have missed the faces and feelings that is here. but the road is home too, and my gypsy heart already misses the rush, and the no responsibilities to desk work [because wifi is usually not a thing].

AND I HAVE MISSED YOU GUYS. TELL ME WHAT I MISSED. hows life? how's your glorious summer?




lOVE,
kATE

    1. isn't it one of the most beautiful, complex, mind-boggling books? I need to do a full re-read myself... I just literally opened up my bible and it fell right open to that page, and I was just like...wowww, thank you Papa...because I needed that so much.

      Summers always go by too fast, don't they? like what is with that anyhow?? XD Glad yours has been wonderful, girl!

  4. Job is honestly such a huge inspiration <3 His faith in God even when he walked the worst seasons of life is just like WHOAAA. I want to be like that. ♥
    GAHH I love those pictures. Sunsets are always so beautiful <3 and YOUR WRITING. Like even when you write a blog post it's so artistic and beautiful. I agree with you -- the road is home too <3 wanderlust is real.
    My summer has been going by at a snail's pace, but also I can't believe it's August already, so I'm not sure how that works out. But it's a good life. WE had a huge heat wave in July, and it broke now (!!!) so the weather is a little "chillier" and not as hot, but it's about perfect <3 I've missed y'all and I'm so glad you're back!

    1. "...is just like WHOAAA. I want to be like that."

      YES. YESYESYES. So much that... I want to be that kind of person too. I mean, sometimes just reading through scriptures that bring that to my remembrance make me want to weep because it is so filled with glory and truth and everything I want to see happening in my heart.

      And thank you so much for all of your kind, beautiful words, Autumn <3 :')

  9. Nice photos - I like sunsets and silhouettes, and that time of day. :)

    I also enjoyed your insights into Job and God. Truly, we do serve a very patient and understanding God. And, the way you relate to Him as Papa - I like it. It brings Him closer, makes me see a little bit more the personal God He is... So, thank you.

    Anyway, I'm glad you had a good trip, and of course, I'm glad you're back too, because I'm already looking forward to reading more of your posts! xx
