A few days ago I posted that I would be away, at least for a while. I needed time alone, frequently in the dark, time to reflect on a recent issue that came up and my life in general.
At one point, a light came on in my mind and spirit. I realized that the issue, bad as it was, that I was learning a lesson mostly unrelated to the issue. It strengthened my reserve to be more disciplined and focused, to organize my time better in order to accomplish not just the daily things, but especially to do what God has been telling me to do…WRITE
I found a book in Barnes & Noble the other day titled “anything” by jennie allen (yes she spells it all with lower case). It is about her journey and “the prayer that unlocked my God and my Soul.” Although her website says it will be in stores Spring 2012, well it is Spring and it is in the stores. http://jennieallen.com/projects/anything I also recommend you watch the 3 minute video clip on her site.
So, one afternoon I went to Starbucks, got a Grande coffee, and set out in the sunshine while I read and made notes as I remembered parts of my own life.
I will always be learning lessons, and aiming to be better…as a person, a friend, sister, volunteer, writer, blogger, in whatever capacity I am in this life, and mostly as one of God’s children.
I thank all of you who replied to my last post on April 10th with all your kind thoughts and encouragement. YOU DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
I am so grateful for these times which make me look at my life, to know my faults and learn from them, to know that no matter how imperfect I am God loves me and sends others in my life who lift me up with their love and encouragement.
