Free Falling

Free Falling....

I want this to be a beautiful new beginning.

I want it to be about my heart's journey.

The most wonderful new venture

I want to be able to share the stories ... His Stories ... 
that have been writing on the pages of my heart
since the very first moments I became a 'twinkle' in my Father's eye.

I want it to be pretty.
Beautiful. Heart touching. Loving. Engaging.
Oh, and did I say beautiful?

From the heart...for the heart.
Heart to heart...moment by moment.
Loving into wholeness the wounded and brokenhearted.
Catching glimpses of heaven in the areas of my heart
and my relationship to the One who calls me His Beloved.

What IS my life signature?
What is that one thing that colours my world?

Beauty.... I am always looking for glimpses
of beauty in every situation and circumstance.

The strength of Joy in all circumstances.
Peace that passes all understanding.
Perfect Love that casts out all fear.
Wholeness of heart, soul and body.


It seems too large.

It's true, sometimes you don't know where you are going
until you get going.

Just write.

Those two little words that seemed... well, just right.

Just Write is about forgetting the worry of details, like finding your niche, gathering like-minded readers,  sending out the 'right' message, even about whether you'll make a difference or not.

If He's tugging at me to pen those words from Home,
then it must matter.

Just write.

I chose black and white, because I wanted something simple, clean, elegant. 
No frills, but not utilitarian either.

Mmmm... will I write from a different mood
because this space ventures far from my usual style?
Will a different voice emerge as a result of it?



Emptying.  Oh yes, that has turned out to be the a theme for this past year.  I had no idea it would be that.  And it is funny that the main place of emptying has turned out to be the emptying of my bookshelves of dozens and dozens of well-beloved books, as well as those that were casual friends and mere acquaintances (those were the ones that hadn't been read enough (or at all) to get into my heart and change my life in some way).

 Keep writing.

I do believe this newly-minted blog is just that... a free falling exercise that will get the words in motion.  Quit stalling.  Pretending you are too busy to get to the real work you already KNOW is what you should be about.

Fear... you've been afraid, my dear girl, already worrying that what you have to share is just too ordinary to even bother with.

But then you go to the Alexander McCall Smith evening event.... and there he sits on that easy chair chatting with his 'talk show host' (even though it wasn't a talk show) and reminds you that those ordinary slices from our lives are good. They are sweet. That is what makes up our lives for the most part. Perfectly ordinary glimpses of heaven in unexpected places. (oops... that's something I'd say on my other blog)

So breathe. Dance. Laugh.
