It has been almost 11 months since I have blogged here! Like our friend Cher belts out “if I could turn back time…”! It is true, many of my musical quips are locked and loaded in the 80’s. I have missed reading and writing da Blog with you all. I must mention how apropos the Waiting on the Lord post from Mitch Teemely was. We are generally impatient in waiting for His good timing! A lot truly went down in the last calendar year. Two jobs ended (sorry to admit it, but grateful I am free from both!), a close friendship ended, and miscellaneous complications thereof! That is the true Reader’s Digest of the last year. The 2nd job was an all-consuming one, my boss was pretty good overall (just one of those meat grinder type of jobs that runs you over). Close to landing the next spot, so I thought I would throw down some words.

Lest someone hear complaint in the words, I am full of liberty and freedom. I didn’t say it was easy to get free, but….! I see opportunity like never before in the liberty of God. What is your time and freedom worth? Life has a balance in it, and here in our American freedom I find imbalance! Here is a song that the lyrics describe my processing. The whole song paints a little different picture, but these lyrics speak to the heart of it! The Ongoing Concept ‘places you go’.

Places you have been make you who you are
(You can make a difference now)
Places you will go make you who you will become

Places you have been make you who you are
(make you who you are, make you who you are)
Places you will go make you who you will become
(who you will become, who you will become)

I find myself continually grateful for what I go through (whether hard or easy) as it shapes my future and gives me experience to share with others when they face similar situations. It is important for all who tell the story of their own lives also. A few more lines from the song:

Get up off the ground
You can make a difference now
Get up off the ground

Another phrase that pays in my world today is “get free”! I am looking forward to the coming months of diving back into all the expressive overflows. Blessings to all readers and writers, I have missed you!
