Rough Hewn is the personal blog of…me!…Leah D. – a designer, photographer, would-be writer living in Seattle. I love writing about my faith, art, design, music, silly things I notice riding the bus or waiting around, and anything that may strike my fancy. Expect a lot of quotes from: Annie Dillard, Henri Nouwen, C.S. Lewis….
This blog has had many seasons, but the thing that has carried through them all has been my desire for this space to be a place that documents beauty, change, honesty, questions, struggles, joys, laughter, quiet moments…all the stuff of life. I’m in process and so are you. My prayer is that in my ramblings you might find a laugh, a smile, a feeling of similarity and connection, a conversation, and evidence of a life lived not in perfection, but in the trust of a grace and savior much bigger myself.
This life, therefore, is not righteousness but growth in righteousness,
not health but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise.
We are not yet what we shall be but we are growing toward it.
The process is not yet finished but is going on.
This is not the end but it is the road.
All does not yet gleam in glory but all is being purified.
