One of my favorite bloggers, Danelle, over at http://www.heseesme.wordpress.com wrote this week that she will not be blogging for awhile since she is in a season of learning. She writes:
I can tell that I have a post brewing when words come like streams into my soul.
I can’t type fast enough.
I read back words on the white screen and want to comment because I don’t even remember typing them.
This is truth.
She is a young stay-at-home m0m with two little boys whom she home-schools. I learn so much from her even though I am twice her age. When she wrote this about her posts, I could relate. Some days my hand types, but it’s like someone else is pressing the keys. Other days I research and edit and revise and research again which leads to more revising. It may be something that is interesting to me, but it is not inspired. Danelle made me think about my writing when she talked about hers. I came up with a word for those posts of mine that are more God-inspired. They are “tHe” posts. Posts that are more newsy and report-like are “the” posts. Somehow knowing that I’m not expecting myself to be inspirational every day is a relief. I don’t know “from what” because no one is making me do this, but I have a sense of relief anyway.
I really don’t want people not to get something when they drop by here. We all only have so many hours in a day and if you take the time to come by, I want you to get, at the very least, a crumb. Do you know what I mean?
Whew, now that that is off my chest, I think I’ll call it a night.
God bless you, Dear Reader,
