I am such a romantic...but do not play it out very often. It's usually when I am alone, buried in a book, or melted into a movie! Suffice it to say, I'm a sap!
Tonight, I did not move, while watching "To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday." Yes, it is sappy, but the scenery, OH!----struck such a chord in me, that I pushed the "stop" button so that I could stare at the beaches, the sand dunes.
Someday, I WILL live by the sea.
Sunday afternoon, especially THIS one, as I was alone, was sedentary, solitary, and soul-FULL. While leafing through magazines and ogling cozy cottages, ANOTHER chord was struck. I could live in a nest. Our home is not that large; yet...I do not even need this.
...I think I'm leaning toward getting lean. We need a bedroom, a kitchen, a bedroom for #2 Son when he returns and for guests, and a room full of books. Throw in a couple of potties, ok, ok. Really! What else does one NEED??????
My Guy shall return tomorrow. I've had four nights by myself with much time to think. I wonder what HE'LL think!!!???
Now, all of this processing could very well be due to the fact that on August 1 I head off to India for 11 days. The Lord has been preparing me for that journey - and I am absolutely thrilled to go. I've had a visual of a cork or a stopper on my soul...and HE wants ME to pop. So, pop I shall, in INDIA!
These times of solitude really do a number on my soul.
