You know what…. I think I have in mind for this space to be a spot where I can share all the thoughts that are in my head. The strange things that have no other place to have a voice. And that is what it has been. Well, if for some reason you are a regular visitor here, you may have noticed that the strange voice has been rather silent lately! 🙂 I have been thinking about that… 🙂 🙂 🙂 And, I think it’s a couple of things..
(I am proving my point here by the frequency of the word "think" in the paragraph above…)
(1) We have been so busy – as I am sure have you – with holidays, and we had the bonus fun of being quite sick for most of last month… so… even if I WAS thinking… no time to chronicle it….
(2) I don’t think I have been thinking. 🙂
Yesterday I had a great chance to think again. The sermon in the morning, the parenting class we started in the evening… to starting my new Max Lucado book just before bed (1am for those who are interested) … lots of GREAT stuff to think about … I will probably include some here in the next couple days…
But that’s when i noticed… I had not been thinking. Whether simply because of the busyness, or because of weariness, or… unfortunately… because I was not allowing anything in to make me think? Often during the holidays I was not really stimulating my mind or my heart… I was merely being entertained with anything that I was giving time to. Or, I was doing my job… singing Christmas songs. Now, don’t get me wrong, Christmas songs rock! BUT, I am not sure I was being stimulated to think.
I was not really reading… anything. I was not hearing anything new in particular… and on top of that I was busy…
That all adds up to, no thinking.
So… I am looking forward to thinking. 🙂
