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.

Celebrate Mondays?

I came upon this piece of wisdom today, and I thought that it was right on spot. So I decided to share and expound on it just bit, as I have a tendency to do from time to time:

People imagine a place of Godliness as a place for seriousness, a solemn place, a place that fills you with trepidation. [A church sanctuary, as an example.] The fact is, where there is God, there
is joy.

That is why our every moment is a moment to celebrate and fill with joy. [Man, I need to remember that; especially on Monday's.] Because at every moment we are fulfilling our mission of bringing Godliness into this world [I think it would be more accurate for me to say that I should be fulfilling my mission.] Not just the obviously joyful matters, such as meditation, study, prayer and good deeds, [Let me be honest and admit that things like study or meditation or good deeds are not the first things that come to my mind when I think of joyful matters.] but also regular, mundane activities and the ways we earn an income and go about life--all are ways by which we know Him and bring Him into our world. [So be it!]

Wow! I love that. I will have to meditate on that some more to make it a part of my life.
