Day 311, November 17
Writing became such a process of discovery that I couldn't wait to get to work in the morning: I wanted to know what I was going to say. ~ Sharon O’Brien
Often I don't know what I'm going to write in this blog. Sometimes a quotation, like the above, will inspire me, but I still don't know what I want to say until I start writing.
Does that sound strange? Perhaps it is for some. For others, like me, it is only through writing that we know what we are thinking, how it makes us feel, what we want others to know about us.
For the past four years, this blog has been my form of expression, saying through the written word what I do not have the ability or talent to say aloud. It is my journal, but it is more. It is my testimony, my value set, my belief system, my sense of self. And, most of all, my gratitude to the Lord for His unending patience, infinite love, unfailing grace.
Joy for today: finding out what I am thinking through writing.
