I’ve seriously perfected the art of not writing the past few weeks. Our family has been hit with a bug that just won’t go away. I am rarely ill, but boy when I am, I go big! I’ve always been an overachiever I guess. [On a side note, I think I’ve gained 10 pounds from eating several batches of those yummy gluten free pumpkin chocolate chip muffins too. Can you overdose on pumpkin? I think you can!]
Though I haven't been writing, I have had lots of time to think in between coughs and tissue breaks. What have I thought about? More like what haven’t I thought about!
I have so many wild thoughts up in my noggin. And it seems like those thoughts just float back and forth and all around at the same time. Ever happen to you? Drives me batty.
But then I chat with other females and they are like “oh yeah, me too.” So that makes me feel so much better. I’m not crazy. I’m just female. Though if you asked some people, they’d say that’s essentially the same thing…haha!
My hubby likes to spend a lot of time hanging out in his “nothing box.” I can honestly tell you that I have NEVER experienced this so-called “nothing” box. I have never had a moment of not thinking about things. Ever. In my life. Even when I’m trying to “not think” about things, I’m thinking about not thinking about things! Talk about driving a girl crazy, right?!!!
So yeah…back to the thinking. My thoughts have been about pretty much everything. Insecurity. My blog. Life. Job. Family. Future family. Church. Friends. Politics. Books. Writing my first book…putting together a talk for a weekend women’s retreat…and the list goes on and on!
So, okay, here’s what I figured out….
Absolutely nothing! All that thinking and no answers. Come on God, where is the crystal ball when I need it? J
But in the midst of all that nothingness, I did come to a pretty great conclusion about blogging. And writing in general, I think. Now, this “big thought” I’m about to share might seem obvious to you, by the way, but this took me about two years to figure out….
So today I felt like catching you up on being under the weather and having all these crazy thoughts in my head. Next week I’ll share a recipe, or just tell you how seriously cool I think Jesus Christ is.
Cuz, really, Jesus Christ is seriously really cool.
If you don’t know Him, or don’t have a personal relationship with him, I would be happy to take some time and chat with you about the true beauty and joy that comes thru a relationship with Christ Jesus. I mean, you might think you know what beauty and joy is….but until you know Jesus, that worldly joy doesn’t even come close!
Feel free to email me, or find me on Facebook if you’d like to chat about how cool God is. I am so blessed that I get to talk about how awesome God is every day on air...but I think I could talk about His awesomeness 24 hours a day, 7 days a week my friends and never tire of it! But I must get back to the tissues...
