As I sit at Panera Bread realizing that this is something that many people have done for a long time, I'm feeling official. It's funny how just a laptop and no distractions can take me to different places. Now that I have this mobile journal (i just came up with that name) I think I'll have to do away with the old paper and pen. Has that time of my life really come to an end? I think so. I had been writing in journals for the past 12 years and now this gives it a new uumph (a word I've loved for a long time!)
The question for me is what will be published? I love the look and layout of the blog page and my Word document doesn't offer the same thing. I'll have to decide if I abandon completely my idea of journalling for spiritual growth on a blog or just in a folder in my documents.

If I could eat my cookies in the morning, I wouldn't feel the guilt that I do at night. I'd have the whole day ahead of me to appreciate the taste and to burn off those calories. I really don't have much more to say about this.
My mornings have changed so much lately. Since the Passion conference and the purchase of this new bible of mine, I excitedly wake up to coffee that Nick brings to me in bed and time to discover more about our God in His Word. What a privilege it is to handle the Bible so freely and discuss it so openly. I've been perplexed as to why I question so much more each time I read a story in the Old Testament. I'm asking things about the text I never saw in the first place to ask. Maybe you can only be spoon fed for so long. I delight in the fact that I was raised on all the classic Bible stories. But as I have transitioned into the one that teaches it to her own children, I find myself learning so much more about God rather than the details of the story. I'm excited about this newness in my reading.
