In summer, I noticed writing slows, people’s thoughts are elsewhere, occupied by a frenzy of rushed vacations and manic relaxation. The flow of thought congeals under the pressure of too much heat and movement mixed, like a fan blowing hot air to quench an unsatisfyable need for cool and calm. And on we breathe, red hot as the air, miserable in the humidity, happier somehow in the rain that falls a few minutes every day to somehow provide a break, despite the miserable wetness of it. Rushed streams of thought are forced and flow thickly when they do attempt flow. Herein lies what I am observing on the blogs. Those unaffected by the heat and cludge of mass vacationmanship, those of us with more bills than income and can not get away, we still write. It is at least somewhere for our mind to go, our thoughts vacate to. So you fellow writers still expressing words from your thoughts, who still can, I thank you and delight in bathing myself in their richness. 😄❤
I just wanted to shout out to the regular bloggers/writers out there. I can tell a whole bunch started out strong with new year resolutions and have trickled off to not write any longer. Writing is such a valuable sharing of ideas and expression of freedom and love. Invaluable. And what a worthy outlet! So this of you still writing away, good on ya and keep it up. It is beautiful to read your words and share life with your journey. Great job!!! Love you!😄❤
God makes each of us unique with specific gifts. My job as a writer is to encourage with truth. God often gives me a topic to write myself based on my experience. Other times someone writes from their gifts and experience that may help someone like-minded. I am a variety writer, all to encourage with truth. I write some wake up calls, some praise, some facts to empower, some challenges to embolden, some poems for trust and faith, some snippets of parentimg, thoughts on schooling, some recipes for health, some plans of salvation. So my blog sight is a buffet rather than one course but all for the purpose of encouraging in truth and hopefully restoring souls to God. I wanted to explain that as it sometimes seems random. My higher goal is for God and I take no money for it and want none because it is worship for my Lord God/Yahweh. Love you all, thank you for reading.😄❤
When one writes well, the words convey the soul of the author.
I love the Bible because it shows me the soul of God.
I love reading books because it connects me with the soul of the writer. Doesn’t matter the physical manifestation of the author, the shell of that person is stripped away to obscurity and the mind and heart and essence (the soul) of the author is conveyed and appreciated. You also see the moral character, for better or worse. And this meeting of souls is beautiful. The story may support this but how it is written is much more important.
Never neglect the written word. Especially the Bible, as God is the most important of souls to connect with.❤
(I get nothing for promoting this book. I did not write the book and do not know the author except through reafing this book. In fact, I blog for my passion and love of God, truth and the art of writing and not money.)
I am promoting this book because it is a fantastic story with the greatest encouragement I know of through its thrilling story. I am reading it to my daughter right now, not having read it for several years, and again was drawn in to its power and sweetness. And it is making my daughter much more passionate about reading. Thought I would pass it on. ❤
For some reason and quite suddenly, I am no longer able to share other WordPress blogs I like on my blog. I am not sure why this is, but just know that and understand that I would share more of my dear writer friend’s blog entries if I could. Please do not take it personally and know that I am not happy about it. Love you all. I will keep reading, however, and write my own. Keep writing. Love your work!❤
Blessed with a wonderful teacher, she armed me at a great age for journaling. It was therapeutic, lovely, an outlet for everything inside, a place to voice it all other than just my songs and piano. It fit me like a glove. And now, as I write, I journal to some degree. My goal now, however, is not so selfish as it once was. It is loftier now. I wish to convey Jesus through my work, whether it be my art, my music, my writing, my teaching, my parenting, my sports, anything. I am not the goal anymore and I find the older I get, the more it is less about me but so much more of God. He is everything. I am a little girl, lovingly designed and made by God, but I am nothing at all without Him. No one is. The greatest “stars” and billionaires on the planet are nothing either without God. God is the why, the who, the where, the way. And Jesus is the key to salvation. So I write Jesus as much as possible. I try to be like Him n in any small way and away we go. Praise God!❤❤❤
