Just Catching Up!

I’m going to write in this right now. It’s already the 18th of February and it’s flying right by me! I set up a Calendar because I wanted to be a bit more organized but it isn’t even panning out. Practically nothing of what I put there worked out the way that I planned it and it’s surprising because I’m not that kind of person.

Somebody said recently; “It’s in the spontaneous this time, not the calculated or planned.” Boy is that ever true this year!

I did manage to do my homework-yes, I’m in school again online and love it….and forwarded my first assignment to my teachers. This picture I’ve posted just gives you a little idea of how organized and minimal my work area needs to be. I don’t need much but I do want it to be comfortable and not cluttered.

I’ve given myself a whole year to take this course so that I can be a “Certified” Copywriter. I’m really not thinking that it will take that long because when I went to college online for a two year degree in Business I had it in one with a 4.0 and on the Honor Roll too! I was surprised myself because I enrolled as a Senior; over 50…my…my! Oh what fun! I give the glory to God because He really helped me through that. I was working full time and often up till 3 A.M. And come to think about it, it was a spontaneous choice then too with the same amount of money; that’s interesting. Looking back I wonder why on earth did I do that?

Well, as it’s being brought to my mind…I think it has to do with right now; don’t ask me why but I believe so. I’ve signed up for classes this year and I believe that there’s a reason and God has it up His sleeve, as it were. Mmm; I have to think-where has all of this come from and how fast. Thinking backwards, I never planned it or even thought of it; the opportunities just popped up! I’m either crazy or I’m tracking with God in a more creative way. Is it possible; why not?

This picture fits. And thinking about this whole thing excites me! I’m not one who can sit still very long unless I’m studying. My face is in the Bible in various translations, a book, or I’m studying something online. I stopped watching TV in 2017 and I don’t miss it at all.

So where am I going? I know I’m going to “what & where” God promised but not in a route I would take myself or even see it-not in a million years! Like I posted last time, a roller coaster ride for sure and very unpleasant to the senses (2020 & 21); the crappiest years of my life and not because of the people, because for the most part I’ve met some really genuine, lovely and generous fun people, but the hardest most ugly circumstances. It’s either that or I never noticed them before to that extent. It’s a very long journey I’ve been on and God isn’t a Liar. I just flat-out believe that if I ask Him to lead and guide me into all truth, He will. It’s not complicated. It’s in the word somewhere where it’s written; actually it’s Luke 11:11-13 (AMP) What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will he give him a snake instead? No! And according to your faith be it unto you. Yes!

Now I just can’t help but believe that I was born for this time on the earth and alive for a reason. I may not yet know what that is specifically but I see pieces that my Heavenly Father has in His hands. There is something He put in me before He sent me from Him in the first place. It’s a mystery and I’m supposed to discover it but I see that it’s only revealed through knowing God’s Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit-the Spirit of Truth and Jesus is the Truth, and He reveals my Father as I cultivate that kind of relationship. That’s why I see pieces…..something like this—

and not the whole picture “yet” just like this puzzle. I will, because He wastes nothing…broken pieces of my life coming together like dry bones….and oh how they will come together, meeting with other people who have been broken, have broken pieces too-who would guess? And what is Father God going to do with us—well, He specializes in Masterpieces! He makes real beauty out of ashes and makes us jewels in His crown! Isn’t that wonderful? He also makes us a mighty army in His arsenal; ferocious and fearless!!! I also believe that we are being honed and sharpened right now….for this Kingdom Age and Era. This is biblical; the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand and Jesus said this the most when He was on this earth operating as a man-in the flesh. He is our pattern and blue-print to go by.

Reminds me of who I am!

My my, I just sat down to do a little writing and all of this just flowed from my heart! Ha Ha; it’s been a while but I love to write! So I hope my scribing brought a little encouragement to someone out there in cyberland who needed it. It’s past midnight in Arizona so time to call it a day! Just one more picture……MIGHTY WARRIOR FIT FOR BATTLE!!!

In the next 20 years I believe I will be living the best years of my life. Learning to Blog is going to be part of that. My friends and family tell me I should, so I will and have fun doing so! I'm an "eternal" 70 something. I have 2 grown Daughters, 3 Grandchildren; 2 girls and a boy, and 3 Great-grandchildren. I live in AZ. I continue to grow and learn and never stop; especially about knowing my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and living in His Kingdom. I have lots of friends, love to ride motorcycles, read and occasionally watch good movies. I like to stay active so I walk a lot and do my 10 min. exercises a day through a membership in Dr. Livingood's Crews. I have cut out tons of sugar as I learned how to eat a lot healthier; I feel great! I'm brushing up on my copywriting skills and just received my first Credential for 2022; looking forward to 2023-a NEW me!!!

  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. We are indeed in a spiritual battle. It seems like it is flesh and blood, but Satan is fighting back. Yesterday I posted about Esther and asked friends for prayer that the message would reach people that needed Jesus and His love. Today, Satan brought up a hurt from the past that I hadn’t thought of in years and it wouldn’t leave my mind. I had to literally tell Satan to leave me alone and start singing praise hymns. What happened goes so well with your post! Congratulations on your course. It sounds like a grand adventure and I’m sure you will do well. I love your play on the word “masterpiece”. A new view on that word–the Master takes the pieces of our lives and arranges them according to His plan. I’ll never look at that word the same again!


    1. So glad that you are inspired! Yes, that is a wonderful way to see that word. I did read what you posted the other day too; just hadn’t commented on that right then; so many things on my plate and you are right. You did the right thing too by telling that creep to leave you alone…another play on words is that we have authority over every “creeping” thing on the earth…and he sure is! Thanks for your comment, I appreciate your valuable feedback.
