Out of the Ashes
I am reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin and decided to check out her Happiness Project Toolbox. One of the ideas I really like is the One Sentence Journal. It is something I think I can manage. One sentence isn't so daunting. At least it will get me writing again. By the way, it has been a great book so far. Rubin talks about "midlife malaise" which I completely identify with.
At the same time I am reading Spiritual Depression by David Martyn- Lloyd Jones. Ya' gotta love how God uses the sacred and the secular to speak to us. It is amazing how the two books speak in different ways to my soul. God knows I'm so hard headed that I need to hear it through several avenues. I am marking it up because there are pearls on every page. A great book for a struggling soul.
Someone suggested that I "reinvent" myself and he has a good point. Also, both books came from the same friend, hmmm...I think she is trying to tell me something too....Thank God for friends who love me! It is time to get out of the rut I've been in for the past 2+ years and start to feel alive again. Who knows, maybe I will start my own Happiness Project! I'll keep you posted.
Be watching for my daily snippets of life as I finish the year...one sentence at a time.
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.
