When a good friend who cares about the welfare of my heart suggested that I use some of my time to write a blog my heart immediately responded with enthusiasm but I was also skeptical and I felt that I had nothing of value to contribute. Yet its been an idea that wouldn’t go away and I have gradually begun to understand that blogging will be “for me” and not about it having any value for anyone else.
At almost 50 I am still discovering “who I am” and what that means for my life. Part of my journey into freedom is recognizing that I want to write things down because by the very act of naming something or revealing the essence of my thoughts I am believing that I am not created for the shadows; but that who I am and my view of the world honours God, that I have a unique place and function in this cosmos.
In the light of all this it seems appropriate that I start blogging with a painting I did a few years ago on the same topic; followed by some words of a song that were also important at that time…
I am FREE TO BE ME
