I am really aware that recently I have relied heavily on Wordless Wednesday to tell the various stories of my daily life and the feelings they induce: my ever-growing delight in my gorgeous family; my joy and renewed hope at the arrival of spring; my longings for peace, space, solitude, warmth, and some time away from it all.
And running through it all the constant reminders of my Saviour's unfailing love and grace! His gentle, intimate, reassuring whispers: "I am with you", "I will NEVER leave you", "you are my beloved", "you are lovely and I delight in you."
I would love to be able to spend more time writing and sharing with you who read, and myself (odd though that may sound) what the Lord is teaching me, how He is growing me, and how I am impacting others with my life, as there is much to tell - although I wish there was way more!! My only niggling anxiety is that my writing isn't really up to scratch and my 'waffle' will give a very poor rendition of what I'm trying to say...
May I ask those of you who write deep and helpful things, whether you spend a lot of time thinking, praying, and writing drafts first of what you would like to share? (Or does it all come out as the 'final edition', warts and all?) And also: how do you who homeschool, find the time, the energy and the wherewithal, to post such amazing, godly and inspiring thoughts? And how do your kids let you get away with it?! How do you manage to get any uninterrupted time during the day when you can just 'ponder'? (These are honest, real questions, which I would love answers to please!! I would greatly value any thoughts and advice as I feel I have so much to learn...)
I would so like to aspire to go deeper in my thinking, and for that to be of some benefit to - well, anyone! But most of the time my brain seems to be on 'autopilot' / 'survival mode' and any great thoughts that come to me, are usually also gone again all too fleetingly!!
But I suppose this is "me", take it or leave it. I want to grow, change, develop, but not become someone I'm not. So, mostly, I am going to continue to do my best here, to be real, and speak truth, and share God's love and hope as I experience them in my life, and observe them in those around me. Anything more/ better than that will be up to Him, ultimately.
