In The Beginning: Journaling through John Chapter 1

IMG_1015

 

Welcome to our first week of Journaling through the Book of John: A Journey for Lent and Beyond ! The purpose of this journey is to linger longer in the presence of the Lord and not create a sprint through the Bible. We don’t want to minimize our relationship with the One who created everything … with a capital E – Everything – to a bullet on our task list, do we? When I look around at the state of the world today, I dare say many people have. I go further and say, I am in danger of doing this daily! When God becomes a bullet on our list of things to do, friend, I fear He has been removed from the place He desires in our hearts and relegated to an unrecognizable blur in our days.

I’m not sure of the weather where you are situated at this moment, but rumor has it, Spring is right around the corner. Since this may appear doubtful…depending on where you ARE situated, I thought I’d share some poetic inspiration about the most elusive season…

It’s been a while since I have attempted any consistent blogging schedule. It’s been longer since I have done an online Bible study or devotional book group. I’ve pretty much felt like I have fallen into blog negligence over the past few years as I’ve juggled various other commitments, roles and opportunities.

BUT…I”M BACK!

Mom and I in happier days!

 

To say that 2018 was a difficult year would be an understatement. When your New Year begins with being abruptly displaced from your home without warning and ends with the loss of a loved one, well words are sorta hard to find.

I spent most of 2018 helping my Mom stay alive. I cannot write much beyond that now- it’s still too new and unreal. I’m still settling into the reality of her being gone and this new year starting without her. I’m still struggling to figure out who I am without her in my life, and what’s next. Most of all I am missing the woman I called Mom.

Journaling My One Word Journey AND Five Quick Tips for Finding Yours

Well it’s that time of year again. The time of year when many choose to make resolutions, set intentions, carve out goals, and plan their dreams for the fast approaching new year.

 

Since 2012 I have been joining in the One Word trend which continues to grow in popularity. I often begin to reflect upon my One Word choice in November or so which is when I allow myself to begin cautiously  considering the year to come. I say cautiously, because I want to be careful not to miss out on being present and available in the last months of the current year. I think there can be too much focus on the nuts and bolts of these kinds of things instead of the substance.

 

As someone who reflects regularly in time, I believe there is a natural unfolding of occurrences which make it easy to tune in to what is needed on all levels- mentally, emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, and in all areas that one needs to grow and grapple with in their daily life.

I believe if we are in tune with God, ourselves and others- we will hear a plethora of possibilities that might be overwhelming. So many choices- and yet we want to limit ourselves to one?
