I write in the after. When little one is settled in bed. When hubs has ventured downstairs to watch the sporting event of the season. After dinner, dishes, playtime, bedtime, that’s when I write. I write after work, after the rest have long since gone to bed and my weary mama eyes need to cross just one more item off the list.
I chase dreams in the after. In the hours left over from the rest of the obligations of the day. I find minutes here, an hour there. Early morning or late into the evening I pray God will open doors. That He would find grace to bless my work & my words when the rest of me is too exhausted to think past the next cup of coffee.
Right now? I live in the after, in the left overs and extras and desperately sought out moments to just be “me.” It’s not where God will have me forever. Someone very smart reminded me today that in those moments, where no one sees what I’m working toward, when no one knows the true deepest desires & God Sized Dreams of my heart, that’s where God can truly work His will. I stay out of it, He gets the glory, and it all happens in the after.
