Journal Page 3

My newest journal page is yet again from the Ragamuffin Gospel.
This quote hit me square between the eyes:

"The call asks, do you really accept the message that God is head over heels in love with you?"

Well. Do I?
But head over heels?

All days I believe He does love me.
SOME days I go with the head over heels version.
Some days are the "what kind of love is this" version.

What a great reminder this was for me.

A good thought for the days that are crazy and make me wonder if I'm crazy.
Or at least headed in that direction.
That direction leads to wanting to lay down on the couch and, like Anne Lamot says, "make a nest for myself."

Nesting is good.
Journaling is good.
Remembering to pick up Brenna is even better.

Have a great day!!

P.S. To a sweet reader named Denise (you have a picture of flowers by your name): Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments!!! I would love to respond to them, but when I click on your name, there is no email available. I just wanted to say hi and thanks!!!


  1. Wow, that is a great question. Head over heels?!? That is really hard to completely comprehend. Just like his love for us, hard to completely comprehend.

  2. I haven't tried a journal yet. I love yours. And your banner is divine. I see it is designed by Susie! Isn't she a hoot. She & I will be in Round Top together. I can't wait to meet her in person.

  3. Thanks for the shout out. The reason for the no email is I just want to comment without blog authors feeling that they have to respond. Love your blog BTW. Also, in case you didn't realize, my sister is Debbie from Words on Wheels.

  4. Aw, hold your applause. She's not so sweet... a bit sassy once you get to know her.


    And I love this journal page AND the question that it evokes. I'm exactly like you, Lynn. I love the "what kind of love is this?" comment. I'm ashamed to admit that I have times when I cry my heart out with that one.

    Then, I remember. Oh, THAT kind of love.

    Great post. I am LOVING your journal posts. It's clearly what you are "supposed" to be sharing right now.

  5. I must order that book. And I adore Anne Lamott.

    Head over heels in love with me, huh? That is a hard one. Loves me...yes.

    I must order this book!
