Hello Old Friend

Writer in the Window @ The Paris Market in Savannah, GA

A journal or diary can seem like a confidant or best friend to those who use it regularly.  The art of pouring out heart on paper is therapeutic and cleansing for the mind and emotions.  So to neglect a journal can often bring loneliness to the writer.  A sense of longing to reconnect even though intellectually we realize it is an inanimate object to which we are connected.

For several months, I have neglected my blog.  Purposefully at the onset of this sabbatical; I was trying to figure out which direction the Lord wanted me to take this platform of blogging.  I don’t want it to simply be a place to vent or to collect useless information.  I long for my writings to be Holy Spirit filled and blessed and used to touch the lives of people in need.

However, being a person of many interests and passions left me confused as to which direction to take.  In the same time frame that I was seeking the Lord about my writing, I developed some health problems and recently faced two surgeries for hernia repairs: one umbilical and one ventricle.  It has been a season of being still and quiet and listening for the voice of the Lord.

Now that I am physically feeling somewhat back to normal, my heart is filled with things I wish to get written down in my journal and blog.  God is doing some amazing things in my heart and filling me a stirring to be more effective in ministering to other people, primarily my family.

So to my blog, “Hear My Heartbeat”, I say…it’s good to see you old friend.  It’s been too long.

Blessings to you my readers as you share the journey of my musings.
