Evolving

Life is evolving right now.
I wish I could explain more.
Let's just say, taking a vacation last week let me stop, declutter my brain a bit,
and well, begin to hear God again.

It's not that I wasn't listening, I just couldn't hear him over the noise of life.
I've also started reading "Choosing to See" by Mary Beth Chapman.

Wow.

Her new memoir, outlining life - especially since that faithful day - May 21, 2008, is in one word - POWERFUL.

It arrived on the right day, and well, God is using it to say SEE I'm here.
In fact, I think I've found my "second" word for 2010 - SEE.
More on this, but this much to say.
I'll continue writing book reviews, but this blog is going to evolve a bit.
It will have more of me and well, my choice to SEE where God is working in my life.

I wish I could say more, but right now, I feel like a big ball of mush.
I'm trying to sort out emotions, decisions and life.
I'm trying to listen to less of the world and more of God.
I'm going to choose to SEE where God is, not wait for God to catch up to my plans.

So stay tuned. I think this is going to be an adventure.

  1. I'm so happy I found your blog today. I've been able to comment for a wonderful book giveaway I've been wanting, the book that is. I relate to the ramblings you were expressing in your writing "Evolving." I felt you said very well what I've been thinking and feeling emotionally. I'm also having a change of routine where I'll be studying the Word more intensely and not only looking to see what he wants me to see; but to hear what he wants me to hear. Life can get so confusing and jammed up with problems that our mind wanders away from the true picture and we feel like we're reaching out in the dark for something to hold onto. You spoke of Mary Beth Chapman and the book "Choosing to See." I'm not familiar with either, but I'm going to find out. I do believe God led me here today specifically to see "Evolving." I'm entering a new phase of my creativity. I plan to write...what yet I don't know what I'll write first. A good foundation of author friends and their blogsites, good reading and learning what authors know is my start base. I'm nearing a change soon to start writing and see what happens. At my age of almost 72 - I don't have much more time to waste. I hear God telling me to write about the parts of my life that will help others and lead others to him. I've plenty of material..true..that readers could say was bad fiction....but it's true. Thank you for lending me your blogsite for a few moments to share with you. I hope you don't mind if I make a copy of "Evolving" to keep in my study notes with my Bible. You've been very helpful to me and I'm thankful to God's grace and mercy.

    Sharing God's Love,
