Wherever Journaling Leads…Go There

It has forever been thus: So long as men write what they think, then all of the other freedoms – all of them – may remain intact. And it is then that writing becomes a weapon of truth, an article of faith, an act of courage.”
― Rod Serling

 

This morning I saw something in my Instagram feed that prompted me to want to share a few fresh from my mouth words in response…which can be dangerous, but I went ahead anyway!

It’s Friday night, and I confess, I am sharing a few words that I wrote awhile back. BUT, it’s all grace, right? I was originally going to share from my morning journal…being the brave and crazy soul that I am. But, all the duties of life led me  down alternative paths. So the housework progress was  made, work  got done, and Saturday will be a beautiful writing time, and lingering with the Lord in prayer and rest. That being said, I challenge you to make your own list. Be spontaneous, my favorite way to write anything at all!

How does one begin a journey? By taking the first step. First steps, those earliest beginnings of what will be, could be. First steps are like possibilities unknown. We take them despite fear, anticipating an unseen outcome. We take them with hope and one at a time. First steps are like the first pages of a journal. Open to possibility.

I have just returned from a weekend Writers’ Conference here in New England. My mind is still racing and I am heading into a busy week…I am hoping to catch a bit more time to process the wealth of information, beauty and diverse voices  I experienced during this  event. Meantime, as always finding the way back into my own rhythm includes a bit of poetry. Poetry is my pathway to clarity,  focus, vision, and possibility. I  hope to be sharing more about that soon…I promise big news is on the horizon, and I can’t wait to share it with you! One small step for this writer…and for you, my faithful  readers and friends!

Meanwhile,  I pray this simple affirming words breathe freshness into your day. For those of you who follow my Instagram account, this is my response to the Spontaneous Journal Prompt I shared on August 16th. I wrote it this morning, but it is the ruminating question  on my mind as I consider my  current writing life.
