Shoot like a Girl | Belonging

Day 37: Six weeks. 4000 miles. Four states.

Two holidays.

Six weddings.

Two birthdays.

One anniversary.

One tattoo.

Two special houseguests.

Two Thanksgiving dinners.

One Thanksgiving breakfast.

One cup of cornbread dressing.

One afternoon with the homeless.

Two tree-decorating moments.

One tree-lighting party.

One dream-filled meeting.

One nostalgic afternoon.

One pinecone hunt.

One fundraising lunch.

One potluck.

One rich podcast.

One lip-sync video.

Six celebrations with strangers turned friends. Or maybe seven. Or eight. Because I lost count.

It’s been a busy season, to be sure. Calendar days cracked and pouring into other days that are already filled with responsibilities and obligations and privileges. I am exhausted.

And yet, I would do it all again. Because THIS:

Every destination was a person. Every moment was together. Every celebration was community. Oh, how beautifully we are built for belonging. How wonderfully we are made for each other.

Please don’t forget that, love. Please don’t let this world tell you otherwise.

We are made for each other.

(Oh yeah, there was this one too).

About Ronne Rock

YOU ARE GOD'S HAND-CRAFTED DESIGN. AND I WANT TO CELEBRATE YOU.

We're in this together, and I am for you. I secure road signs with a hammer of hope, and clear the debris so they can be seen. I am your encourager. I walk and keep walking. Cheer and keep cheering. I invest, dive deep, and cherish most the stories being written in the lives of women who believe restoration is a reality on earth as it is in heaven. God holds the pen in those stories, “That one - I hold her. And that one - she is My delight. And that one - never snatched away.”  I am a mouthpiece of celebration for women. Redemption is our song. You can find even more encouragement in  "For You, Love" the prayer journals that invite you to respond, and in Everbloom, a collection of stories from the Redbud Writers Guild. I'm currently writing One Woman Can Change the World, set to publish late spring 2020 (Revell). I'm honored to be represented by Credo Communications.
