Did you ever wonder...where did the time go?
Has it really been THAT long?
How have I changed? Are my goals, dreams and my purpose still the same?
As you can see, it has been over three years since I have "blogged", connected and shared my
thoughts. To be truthful, I have felt like a drifter and in some ways, homeless, during that time.
I am tired of it. As I approach the wise old age of 50, I feel the urgency to leave a legacy bigger than me. To find joy through the discontent. To touch lives of those I may never meet. To hold close those who I would miss most. To create meaning in life so that I leave with a smile on my face and a celebration for those around me.

Wow! I find that often my Facebook posts are actually words of encouragement or frustration to myself. Thoughts expressed. Inspiration for action to be taken.
And yes, can you tell, I am in a season of discontent. I call it a season because I know, "this too shall pass". I am not praying for the pain and confusion to leave but praying that I may grow and get stronger, more focused and believe more through it. Pain is an inviation to grow.
Thank you, Lord, for this invitation. I joyfully accept and will bring focus, action and belief to achieve what you have in store for me. I am excited and can't wait for the surprise at the bottom of the box.
