Writing gaps

It has been hectic around here for the usual reasons and I think now I certainly do feel like having lots of children to deal with. On the other hand I also feel like it is a phase and when the little lady is a bit more independent and I am a bit more organized, I will not feel so tired and pressured for time.
Then I will be able to blog more regularly and get into the groove. Thank God for His grace that abounds.

Friendship with God

Yesterday I tried to submit a new piece for this blog and it failed; technical problems. It was to do with the dynamics of friendships. Thank God for friends and thank God for His call to Abraham to be His friend. I desire the same too, Father.
I want to get to that place where human friendships are deep and meaningful but also bonuses instead of crutches for me.
Lord, You are more than anyone could possible explore or know.
Thank You for Your love and kindness.
I love you, Father.

Keep holding on

A few weeks ago, I decided to try to write for 15 minutes each day and it has not been possible to do that every single day. I have not even been able to blog each day and I am doing my best to stay positive about it even though I am sad inside . This phase shall pass and I will rebuild what disipline has been lost. Like I heard a woman of God say the difference between a dream and a destiny is that you can walk away from a dream but not your destiny.
Now it would be presumptuous at the moment to say I know what my destiiny is though I know it is something to do with Ghana but I know that I am constantly thinking about the writing and have things in my mind to try. Somehow I get to the PC sometimes and because I haven’t jotted my thoughts down, they have flown away but I have to persevere and keep learning and picking myself up after barren periods and times like these. Keep the faith and keep holding on and pick myself up.
Writing, Ghana, teaching, etc etc. I cannot walk away from my destiny so I keep getting up.
They that wait upon the Lord renew their strength indeed.

It does sting

I haven't written here in a while and I feel it but things should get better; I live in hope. Sarah is growing and becoming more engaging and more interesting .
This evening I have just received some criticism for two pieces of writing and it stings a little but even the best authors have to take criticism and get better at the craft. I stop learning once I think I know it all and indeed who knows it all?
I will learn and do my best and keep reading and keep learning. One day I will also be in the position to give constructive criticism and be as gentle and as supportive as possible.
I will sleep well today; I have done my writing for the day. Thank You, Father.
