Lately


I love words and do not take them lightly. I am well-read and have a fairly extensive vocabulary. I love mulling over concepts and possibilities, looking at things from a variety of angles, and discussing options and “what ifs” and “maybes.” When I say, “I’m not sure how to say this,” it’s a pretty big deal.

I’m not sure how to say this.

I can say that I’m on a thought journey with a renewed desire to seek Truth. I can say that I was recently reminded of our false separation between sacred and secular and that everything is sacred. I can say that I’ve been very aware that my thoughts and views on some very accepted beliefs are not in sync with those around me, and I can say that that makes me wonder if my view of God and redemption and forgiveness is also very different from theirs.

If this makes me sound depressed or angst-ridden, I want to assure you that I am not. The fresh realization of the sacredness of each part of life also causes me to see beauty in everything. A simple story reminds me of God’s love. A tale of good-versus-evil that some would ban brings tears to my eyes as I see pictures of Jesus’ sacrifice for me laced throughout the story.

Even a child’s tale can bring me to tears because of the beauty of love, hope, forgiveness, joy, and new beginnings.

I hope that I can find words to express the details. When I do, I will share them here with you.

  1. Wow. You've put into words some of the very thoughts I've been thinking, and “felts” I've been feeling. Well, except for the depressed and angst-ridden, 'cause I have felt twinges of both. 🙂 I'm also reading Foster's Celebration of Discipline. Interesting. Guess we are kindred spirits on some level. Please keep us (me) posted as your journey progresses.
