I bought a necklace on Etsy, and wore it everyday. It was a Meme that said, “Life doesn’t sparkle unless you do.” The finish started peeling off from the wear.
I found this one today, and purchased it immediately.
I was looking for this quote, and found the necklace.
That is the same way I found the other necklace. Just out of curiosity. Is it a Meme, or a necklace? It’s both. I’m excited to give my other one a much needed rest.
I’m learning about stillness. It is hard to find complete stillness. To sit still, or have alone time is one thing, but to tune into your surroundings and everything is completely still, at the same moment?
It’s a magical moment to find out who you really are.
When I was a little girl, we went to church. Mama was very active in the church, so the whole family went. Mama didn’t give us a choice until we were 18.
There was a song we sang in Sunday school, and you’ve probably heard it. “Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so.” We learned it by heart.
Mama made us go to church, so when I turned 18, I left. Who wants to be ‘made’, or forced to do something? I may have left the church, but Mama knew what she was doing. I still don’t question Gods love for me. His love is the one love I know is true.
When I look over my life, and ponder what has bent me the most, it’s relationships. I haven’t written in-depth about them publicly before, but writing heals.
I don’t write about specific people, or use any names. It’s what the person taught me that will fall to the page. If they read this Blog, and realize it is them being used as an example, my hope would be they feel honored for being worth writing about.
I want to document this season of my life, because I haven’t done that before. Most people keep private journals, which I have a stack of, but keeping it private doesn’t help anyone but me. This life is not all about me, and even that took time to know.
This I know.
The closing of a door.
When one closes, another opens. They close for a reason, and in due season. The difficult part, is leaving it shut. We touched on that in It’s a Start.
But, can a door change? Let’s say we close the door on a relationship. Can it make adjustments, and become a more appealing door? Putting space between you and the individual causes stress. We get to see how well the stressful situation is accepted, but if they are solid within themselves, and their commitment, they will not falter. They wait well.
Acceptance. Does that door hold your hearts desire?
