Poetry? Me?

April 29, 2017

Can I do this?

Never considered myself good at this kind of thing.

But last week I went to a poetry reading, enjoying it more than I thought I might.

Her words were about real life, not hard to understand.

Symbolism makes more sense to me in  allegory than in poetry.

And now I’m finding myself enjoying writing this more than I might.

Didn’t want to do some same old post.

This week is revival at church.

I think my week is going to be with meetings..

Just show up, God.

Come and show off if You want.

Thank You

Three things

April 22, 2017

This morning I felt like I got nowhere on anything I wanted to do today. Thankfully, coming back this afternoon, I was able to get through the business stuff I wanted to do in a couple of hours. I’m feeling better just knowing that I did get through my stuff.

  • I’m always getting e-mails about online trainings I can attend. I’m pretty careful about which ones I listen in on. And some I start and then decide that it is not something that will help my business. But yesterday I listened to something I think might really help me. The training was talking about how different businesses can help one another grow. I’ve started working through some things and really plan to do more of in the coming weeks.
  • I’m doing a lot in the business these days.. But I am getting some writing done when I need to take breaks from work, or when I’m not able to get online. I’m now working on revising one of my novels.
  • I haven’t found anything yet , but I’ve been looking into online writing classes. I want to start out with something free. I’ve been sending out some articles to different blogs.. Hopefully I am going to get better as I get more practice. But taking some classes might not be a bad idea.

I’m surprised at how quickly I got that done.

Some Easter thoughts

April 15, 2017

My family has always been a fan of radio dramas. We grew up on Adventures in Odyssey. In that show, there was something called the imagination station, where characters could go back and witness different event throughout history.

I think if if I could go back and experience one event, it would be this weekend.. I know it would be horribly sad, but…

We know the end of this story, but the disciples didn’t. Sure, they had been there when Jesus raised Lazarus. But that was different. Jesus was the Miracle Worker, but the people had kill the wonderful Man.

They had given their lives to following this wonderful Man. But now He was gone, He was dead. No one could do anything about that, right? What were they going to do? What were they supposed to do?

I think knowing the end of the story has made… Wanted to say that it had lost some of it’s power. Thankfully, the cross has not lost its power. But can you imagine someone you dearly loved coming back fromthe dead? What incredible joy they must have felt..

Saturday thoughts

April 1, 2017

My family has had some busier weekends lately. We’ve had several things going on between family and some dear friends. I was actually supposed to be gone this weekend. My sisters and I were planning a girls’ weekend. But we were going to do this in Atlanta.. Well, they had this fire which burned a bridge which has caused even worse traffic than usual.. And as it turns out, it is not turning out to be a great weekend to do a fun trip for my sister in in college. She has a lot of studying to do and things like that.

was looking forward to the weekend with my sisters for sure. We started this last year. It’s kind of my birthday celebration with my sisters I get to decide what we have to eat and also decide what we’ll watch.. But of course, we’ll talk too.. This has been postponed, not cancelled.

And so, to be honest, I’m kind of glad. It would have been a quick trip with all my sister needs to do for school. We’ve been traveling a lot, and will be gone again next weekend, and a weekend where I’m not in the car for hours on end is nice.

I’ve been hanging out on my computer today. I have gotten through my work stuff, though I have been reading a good bit too. Tomorrow I’ll be with my friends I do things with a lot of Sundays.
