Make your life count…

          1. I don’t forget, I never could. But everything in me cries out (daily) to me to start living a life of meaning, you know? And I can’t help but feel like a failure and a disappointment to everyone… Especially God because He gave me this great gift and I am squandering it. By doing that, my wife says that I’m basically spitting in His face.

            1. Everyone goes at their own pace through life. You aren’t squandering anything. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise and don’t let the impatience of others make you feel like you are a disappointment. God will motivate you when he thinks you’re ready. Keep talking to him and you’ll see… 🙂


            2. See, that’s the thing: no one has said anything negative about my writing, and the only impatience I sense (and it’s only slightly) comes from Tanya. Otherwise, not to brag, but I have an amazing support system. Almost all of this is internal; I am my worst enemy. God has been nudging me for years, I think I’ve been ready all along. More than anything, I need to make Him a priority. I know He has a plan for me (as He has for us all,) and that I cannot fail. I just need to do it. Thank you, Michelle!!

  1. Your word photo above made me stop and think, I’m one of the few rare people who will tell another exactly what I think. I try to be tactful, but I’m never exactly sure how it is going to come across. Of course, I don’t spout off these positions without a little meditation on the matter first. I just want people to grow and live life to its fullest and I’m not afraid to spell it out at times. It’s unorthodox, but it’s my way of leaving a conscious stream of the thought in my wake.
    Thanks for spurring my thoughts.

      1. Oh, and Michelle, I’m glad you say things the way you are feeling them. It’s a gift.
        While I’m at it, I think I will also throw this thought out there. I think your honesty about life is highly regarded by God as well.
        Ever since I began following your blog, I keep having this mysterious person named Michelle showing up in my dreams.
        It’s all good. It’s basically confirming that you are on the right track and it is ok to synch with what you’re saying.
        Interesting huh?
        Thought I’d share.

        1. Thank you… this means a lot to me. That is really interesting… Isn’t it wonderful how we can have dreams and I even have visions of people that I have never met. I love trying to discern the meaning. Sometimes it is quite a puzzle and other times it’s very obvious.

          1. It is. I tried to figure out who this mysterious Michelle was that kept invading my dreams for several weeks now. I already knew the meaning of the name, which is often a huge clue to what the dream is portraying, but the repetition usually signals it is important. So I meditated on it a bit. That’s when I plugged it in that it was a reference to you in one of our digi-conversations.
            Anyway, it’s all good. You seem to like to take over the classroom and the kitchen whenever you get a chance. I’m not usually willing to cede this position. But in this case, ok, go ahead. 🙂
