Funny how I always get so comfortable in my daily grind and then something gets all shook up. One day a light bulb goes off or an opportunity opens up and my life changes course.
I was doing just fine until…
- I met my husband and he treated me better than any man ever had. I fell head over heels in love with him and it altered my life in a major, major way.
- I had children. I probably don’t need to explain this one at all. They have been such blessings and such reasons for making the decisions we make. Life altering redirection.
- We felt the call to take a giant step of faith and move to Florida. We’re still watching it all unfold. We had no idea why we were supposed to come here, but I have never regreted the decision and I will never live in Ohio again.
- My sister introduced me to something called a blog. I had never heard of it. Now I am a daily blogger and I really enjoy it.
I am on the edge of awareness. I don’t know what is being stirred inside of me, but it is something. My eyes are being opened to things I’ve never noticed before (or refused to notice). I feel the eyes of the hungry looking my way. I see the pain in the heart of humanity and it spills over onto my lap. I hear the cold silence of the aborted and I can’t stop the noise.
The stirring started sometime recently. My selfish side (flesh) tries so hard to ignore it. My nurturing side (spirit) can’t look away. My soul stares at these things and it is impossible to look away. I cannot look away.
Awareness. Sometimes it tears me apart. Sometimes it brings me utter joy. What will it be this time?
