For some of "us" this is a time of travel, R and R but we're not there...yet. All in due time. Well, not DUE time...His time. I'm trying to listen to God. Walk with God. In fact, My Guy and I are reading "Walking with God" by John Eldredge. As is always the case God has a theme running through the everyday. Handpicked for moi. While AT home, I'm to be quiet. And listen. Pay attention and when distracted, get still and quiet. I spent a good part of the early morning reading said book, then snippets from older saints, the Bible, praying, trying to listen...
I have a Doodle Book (that's my name BUT an idea from Tracy Porter) where I write quotes, "aha" ideas, beautiful pictures from magazines of dream destinations or a favorite photo. I include Scripture that speaks to the moment. Ya know - a girly-doodle-book. I opened it today after reading WWG, and doodled away.
I made a list of my talents (whoa, why do so many of us have difficulty with that?). It seems these talents (or natural affinities) should match up with my next career. The best part about this stage in life is that I don't have to go back to work. I want to. So why not "do" something I love, enjoy and am good at? Ahhhh, but I am "of a certain age" - almost the 55. Am I hire-able?
Well, who knows? Oh, yes...God knows. So when I left the quiet this morning, I knew my mission: it's to seek Him first then be open (receptive). I do love a good adventure - remember Vava doesn't do boring.
So let me know if you have ideas for my mid-life-crisis-calling.**
I'll keep y'all posted!
