One of the things I love about bloggerville is the opportunity to meet others and read some really inspirational writing. A few days ago I read a post by Elaine at Peace for the Journey that has challenged and altered some of my thinking. Elaine states "I’m also a soul walking in solitude right now..." What a beautiful statement! Her words made me do a "stop and think." To think about sitting in solitude with the Lord instead of being "sent to the couch". How much more uplifting and positive was Elaine's statement than my thinking?? Her statement offers hope, mine sounds more like punishment. Hmmm....Perspective and attitude.
Lysa TerKeurst ...I realized I was fiddling with foolishness. Lysa's post reminded me we all have our own story. There is no "right" way to do life or to experience the "cancer" journey. All survivors have a past and we each have different circumstances that make up our walk.
If you have the time and want to be inspired check out Elaine's blog at Peace for the Journey or Lysa at Lysa TerKeurst.
PS. This week I cut back on all activities except for working 8-4....and it is helping my body heal...I actually went for 2 20 minute walks today. So, I am planning on keeping the activities limited through the month of December, anticipating that in January I will be out sharing that "Hope lives now!"
