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.

Where Have You Been All My Life?

from Longfellow’s "Endymion"

"…O drooping souls, whose destinies
Are fraught with fear and pain,

Ye shall be loved again!

No one is so accursed by fate,
No one so utterly desolate,
But some heart, though unknown,
Responds unto his own.

Responds, as if with unseen wings,
An angel touched its quivering strings;
And whispers, in its song,
‘Where hast thou stayed so long?’…"

A reminder, gentle reader, that there is someone for everyone! Someone who comes along and says "Where have you been all my life?" To spring, to new beginnings, to life!

I wonder if having someone out there is a blessing or a curse.

I assumed it a blessing, Scott, but if you can ask the question, then it must be both.

Well spring is certaintly here! I spent two hours in the garden and it was brillinat. :-)

Thank you very much for the comment on my blog, Rachman. Everyone should be like you. I hope you realise that I didn't mean you personally in any of what I said. I can see how much your religion means to you, and yet you don't try and make me believe it, and I really respect that. I was talking about narrow minded people of the Christian or ANY religion who can't seem to understand that different people have different choices in life and condemn them for that. To me, people with attitudes like that aren't worthy of being Christian.

Of course we can remain friends - I love your posts because they are accessible to me as a non Christian even though you talk about Christian ideals. Thank you for your honesty too. Don't change!! :-)

Hi GhostRose,
Thank you so much for coming by to chat. I knew you weren't talking about me personally, but I felt someone of the Christian faith needed to respond to your comments. I'm glad you were open and honest, so that we could exchange ideas. Hope we get to visit again. ~ r.
