A letter from the past

The following is an e-mail from the past, composed on December 28, 2010, and sent into the future (now the present) through FutureMe.org.

My dearest Self,

“I will give you the treasures of darkness and riches hidden in secret places, so that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name” (Isaiah 45.3). I don’t know what secret places, or darknesses, or hidden moments are in your life right now, but I pray that you (I) will treasure them, allowing them to be birthed slowly, in good time.

Love you — take care of yourself —

D.

I needed this e-mail today.  I haven’t blogged much this semester because I am not certain how to integrate blogging with major life transitions (graduation, commissioning, moving)… how honest can I be about the emotional roller-coaster that I’ve been on?  But I pray that the secret places, the darknesses, the hidden moments in your life will reveal treasures.  I am holding onto that promise.
