I promised myself that I would write today.  I am not sure what has happened in recent weeks but words haven’t been there.  And I believe I have to write even when I feel there are no words because if I don’t, then I might stop altogether.

And I don’t want that.

I feel I am called to write, but sometimes I wonder…am I REALLY called? 

Sometimes words flow.


And other times it is like a rusty nut stuck on a bolt.  You know wrenches, WD-40 and brute strength to release it. 

That is how the words are sometimes.  That is how it has been the past two weeks.

But I DO feel called.  I believe that if my words only help to clear my head and my heart, then I should write.  But, truly, deep down in my gut I believe that my words reach some soul out there in the world.  So…I trudge along…

I think the problem partly stems from my preoccupation with a problem at work.  I have a pretty stress free life – yes, I know I am blessed in that area.


But a problem has arisen at work that is causing me great angst. I looked that up to make sure that I used it properly! *grin*

On Wednesday, I decided to try and clear the air because I no longer wanted to continue having the issue dominate my life.  

My attempt at clearing the air didn’t go so well.
Yesterday, after a conversation with my wise husband, I have started to pray about the situation in a different way.  My work day yesterday was better…so we will see if things continue to improve. 

So I write.  Even though I feel I have nothing to say I write.

I write words that don’t seem to make sense, that may not matter to anyone but me. 

But I write.

Sometimes life is like that.  

I have to keep plodding along because I know it is the right thing to do.

I have to keep putting one foot in front of the other because it is the right thing to do.

I have to.

I just HAVE to.

Because deep down in my heart…I know it is the right thing to do.

And sometimes doing the right thing, isn’t the easy thing.

Have a good weekend….
