My name is Esmeralda, many of my friends call me Essy though. I’m a Catholic homeschooling mom of two. A Lay Carmelite. A photographer. We have been greatly blessed by the gift of adoption and am a big champion of life at ALL stages. Life is beautiful, even when it is messy and chaotic…that’s when God can do His best work.
The previous title of this blog was ‘stepping aside’. It was meaningful for me at the time, because I felt like I kept getting in God’s way…and I needed to just step aside and let Him take over. However this journey is a lot like a dance…sometimes we move backwards and then as if out of nowhere we start moving forward again. That’s the place where I’m at right now. God is asking me to ‘step into it’. God is saying ‘be not afraid’. Go ahead and step into it…into relationships, into joy, yes and even into the messes. I am here to lead you into the promised land and to keep you safe. Don’t stay frozen…just ‘let it go’…haha…sorry. I’m goofy like that. 😉
