I have been making an effort to MAKE time to work on this journal. Otherwise, it just 'aint gonna happen. I can hardly believe this, but-are you ready for this? I set my alarm a little bit early. Alarm and early just should not be in a sentence together. Please note the part that says "a little bit." Just 10 minutes. But it's a start and I kinda like it. I set my coffee the night before, and it's ready when I come downstairs. That helps.
And that I have only done this twice.
I started with a quote from this book:
It's the second time I'm reading through it. It seems like each paragraph has something for me to chew on for at least a week.
But after I wrote out the quote and thought about it all day, I wasn't coming up with anything.
Until I heard a new song by Amy Grant: "Better Than a Hallelujah"
The chorus rang true for me and has stuck for quite a while..
"We pour out our miseries,
God just hears a melody.
Beautiful, the mess we are
the honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a hallelujah."
I'm glad I printed it out-I realized I did it wrong in the journal!
This little bird was a Tim Holtz stamp, but he's no where near finished..
But the process will be good.
And it's a great thought to keep in my mind this week.
I'm turning in early...
Good night, all!
