So what is this going to be? A little bit of everything I think. Maybe that's it. What I'm thinking. What I'm believing. I hope what I'm knowing. And why would anyone care what I think I know? There's no reason in the world that you should. But then why are you here? Cuz you have to be somewhere I suppose. I've never been here before. I may not be back. I might get too busy to care; time is short. That's fine. Nobody can deal with it all at once. There is a lot to deal with.

I try not to take myself too seriously, but I know I have far too much. So I'm trying to learn how to laugh again, as I had forgotted for a while there. Also I'm relearning to enjoy life; you know, like when we were kids. The biggest challenge ahead is learning how to love God with all my heart, and soul, and mind, and strength. This one is not really that hard when you know the truth. But along with it comes learning to love others as I love myself, and that one is, as they say, "a horse of a whole different color." I think I need to learn to love myself a little more, but the problem may be that I know all these facts about me. Sometimes the facts are simply wrong or they are just stuck in the past. I'm trying to get my facts to line up with the truth. As someone once asked a great man, "what is truth?" If he had only known.

The Best of Life is the Rest of Life!

This picture came from the blog called PostSecret. If you haven't checked it out yet, it's time you did. I don't necessarily like all the cards or secrets I see, but I guess that's the point. Each one represents one person's secret feelings, emotions, actions, desires, or whatever. I don't know what is so secretive about the one above, but I identified with it immediately. A lot of people probably do. As I stated when I started blogging, time is short.

Today was my birthday and it went pretty well, but now at the end of it, I'm reminded that I haven't done everything I need to do in this life. This can be problematic for many people, I'm sure, but then I'm only responsible for what I've done, or not.

I'm not really feeling bad about the situation, as someone always likes to say on the birthday card from the coworkers, having a birthday is better than the alternative. (At least in the natural.) I know that to be absent from this world would be the best thing that could happen to me. But I wonder, no, make that, I know that I haven't done all that I need to do in this life. But time is short. Biblically speaking I should have another 70 years, but I can't help but think that by the "signs of the times" I, or we, only have a few years left. Okay, maybe a decade or two. I need to do some thinking, and some praying, but mostly I need to do some "doing." So I guess I had better get busy. "The best of your life is the rest of your life."
