JournalingToday I'm going to journal a little on here, meaning that I'm going to share a little of my heart in a more official way.
I am very happy today. I don't really know exactly why. But it does make me happy to be happy. One reason I think is that I have gotten a lot done today, and I have clarity of mind. This morning I made several phone calls right away and got ready quickly. I also did some other things I would normally have put off. Some of those phone calls have been on my list for quite a while, and others I just hadn't wanted to deal with. It felt so good to have them done already. It feels good for it to be 12:30 and for me to have something to show for my day and also to have a plan for the rest of it. For the rest of my day, I'm going to finish my quiet time, go to the grocery store, bake a cake for my neighbors (we borrowed their movie for about 9 months. that calls for a cake), and I'm planning to write a long-overdue letter to a friend. It makes me so happy to feel like I can look around my workspace and see more desk, and that I have been accomplishing things instead of shuffling them around on my desk or on my to-do lists. What further delights me is that getting some of these things done will allow me to do some other things I have been longing to do for a long time. Like read books, organize things, and write. This makes me extremely happy. I am also happy because I have been cooking real meals lately. And because I just read some articles in a borrowed magazine that sparked some good thoughts and inspiration. And I'm happy because I am writing more again. It feels like the real me. I'm uncovering the real me. I think I've been hiding.
The reason I decided to post instead of writing in my physical journal is that it takes too long for me to write by hand. Also, I wanted to draw attention to the fact that God is good. Fewer people would see it in my journal. (Few people will see it on my blog, as a matter of fact.) Anyway. I believe that God has good things happen to a lot of people who never know or acknowledge Him. But I do know Him; in fact, He's my Father, and I am thankful for the good things that He has been bringing about in my life. A freshness of thought and many things going well lately. Clarity of mind. And I like to write. So I put it up here. :)
Okay, I better go. I need to do some other things and then go to the store. Bye!
