journey before destination || walking in the fog

Tuesday, November 08, 2016



I've always wanted to walk in fog. kinda one of those things in my imaginary bucket list--I've done it a couple times but never in a fog as thick as this one.


it's like a layer of creamy gloss that covers your eyes--it surrounds you, and your ears almost feel clogged with it. and, if you are like me, and only used time to grab your camera (pssshhh forget about shoes) then you also feel the wet dew on your toes as you walk through the grass. it's actually really amazing and, oddly, quietly peaceful. like, I'd like to get a hammock and lie out there amidst the fog. plz.

it's funny. some things are just as you imagined them--and others, well, the best part was anticipating and dreaming of it. things aren't always what we imagine--but if we allow God to lead us wherever He leads us, we'll soon learn to love the journey, and not just anticipating the destination and being dissatisfied with were we are. right now. not where we'll be in a years, months, or even tomorrow.


it's not like we are always going to be perfectly content--of course not--but that doesn't mean we shouldn't strive to follow The Lord and be satisfied with our journey He's prepared for us.

I rly don't know where this came from but maybe one of you needed to hear it, or maybe I need it. all I know is, God's got His plan for you and me. He's got this.


can you relate?
have you ever walked in a really thick fog?

  2. I drove (not personally cuz I can't drive, but in a car XP) through super thick fog on a mountain a week ago. It was so cool because we could only see like 100 ft in front of us, but also super scary because it was a two-way road O.O

    but I love fog. There's something just so beautiful about it.

  8. Girl, definitely walk through the fog when you can! I remember particularly in fifth grade, every day when I had to walk behind the school to get to the entrance for the fifth and sixth graders, it was foggy to the point you can only see the ground several feet ahead of you. IT'S SO MYSTERIOUS BUT IT'S THE LOVELIEST THING.

    xoxo Morning

  14. SARAH. This post - and your PICTURES. They're SO pretty! (but I could be biased, because I LOVE fog :D) Waking up to a foggy morning is basically the best - make me want to write and read and stare out the window at all the prettiness *nodnod*.
