Well, I guess the title and web address reveal my love for the Lord of the Rings story by Tolkien. I mean, I really, really love it. The books and, especially, the movie. I think I love it because the story makes me think of things much greater than me…of Someone much greater than me. I’m finding that I’m also swept up in an unexpected adventure – joining Him in bringing his Good Kingdom to earth, just as it is in Heaven (or that Far Green Country). It’s more than a place to me, it represents beauty and restoration and the hope that all will be well, and all will be well and all manner of things will be well.
At this point in the story, I live in Kansas with my husband (who happens to be amazing and a perfect match for me) and my sweet toddler. I’ve recently transitioned from a full-time job in ministry to a mom and wife who stays at home and takes care of business – I guess they call it “homemaking”.
