Post From the Past (2008)

Just like the clouds roll by so does life

some clouds cause storms that we want to pass

some clouds produce a much needed watering

this is how life is

we need to go through the storms

to know how to live in the light

to know how to drink in the refresher rain

feel the feeling

in order to move forward

2011, it took me years to "feel" my life. I had to go back and feel the feelings because I was very "shut down". Lots of walls...I've got most of them down but even now I have to remind myself not to put up walls and to be true to myself. It is an ongoing process. God is so good never to overwhelm me.

Thanks for reading!

Visual from God

Everytime I get up from sitting in my house, my dog, Macy, gets up with me and walks to the back door. Each time she does this, the same thing pops in my head. I wonder if I treat God like Macy treats me. Do I think every move God makes has to be about me. I admit, sometimes, I do.

I'm thankful that God uses things in my daily life to help me learn. God is for me always but, sometimes, things are not about me. Sometimes, I am called to sit back and pray while God does a big miracle in someone else's life, just like Macy has to wait for me to decide it is time to let her out.
