"I Seek"

I have been a bit behind the last 5-6 days, I haven't read blogs (so sorry!) nor have I posted.  I've been dredging through the days trying to accomplish the simplest task's sometimes in the most complicated way.  What can I say, I was born with that nature, "by process of elimination"! And it's not always the best way to tackle a project.

 I think we all have the desire to be an accomplished person but, at what?  I want to be writing, I want to be reading and studying, I want to go back to school.  I want to be a wonderful mother and grandmother, a respectful daughter and...well, the list goes on.  I guess I haven't (at 60) decided what I want to be when I grow up (you can laugh here).

I have always enjoyed learning, I simply can't get enough. I NEVER question God or His Word but I certainly do question my or others understanding sometimes and so "I seek".

I was looking back at some posts when I first opened this blog over two years ago paying attention to some of my thoughts, events and understandings.  I can look back and laugh at some, at some consider "what was I thinking!" and some I even want to say "I don't know who wrote that".  As if some gnome or elf had slyly made their way past my passwords and posted in my stead.  But then with a huge smile I feel joy at the growth I have made. I don't see a lack of accomplishment or embarrassment I see growth.

I know that God has blessed me by His patience, with His grace and has sent me on this path.  I always pray that some words I write will in any way be fruitful for someone else.  I pray also that they be His words and be fruitful for me also.

Matthew 7:7
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

I am stubborn, most curious, inquisitive and always "seeking Him".  I have been blessed 10 fold by writing here.  My attempt to "give" has been equally "received" as a gift for me of growth. Yes the Lord is good, He is so good.  And Amen to that!

Matthew is the first of the five Gospels, the Besorat HaGe'ulah in the Hebrew B'rit Chadashah (the New Covenant) 


  1. You only really keep what you give away.

  2. Yep. I can see growth in you, too. Lots of it. Growth closer to God, more comfortable with others, more control over self. Growth.

    The ultimate qualifier for the definition of "living" is growing.

    Love you,
    Sis Jean

  3. we are alike in so many ways :)

  4. Like curiosity, stubbornness is (sometimes) a gift. At least that is what I tell myself.

    I also have had my writing attacked by those pesky gnomes and elves. I actually view those moments like I do the marks that we made on a door frame as our children grew. They are just reminders of where we once were, but are no more……….

  5. You are all so sweet, thank you each.
