My baby turns six... And I'm one proud mommy...
It's been six years to the month since I posted my first blog entry.
Which means, it's been over six years since God said, "Write for Me,"...
And over six years that I've been blessed with the insights from Him, and even more blessed that I get to share them with others...
Just today, our pastor said we are sub-creators and co-workers with God. In the context of writing, that would mean I'm a co-author and collaborator with Him in sharing the Good News. (It's easy to determine who says what --- the impulsive, ungracious trains of thought are mine. :p )
A six-year-old child can already think and act for himself, learn independently even. A six-year-old blog, on the other hand, would survive depending on the relevance of the subject matter and the commitment of its 'parents'. Well, God is nothing if not relevant, but am I still available... and inspired?
The same God who told me to write for Him has also called me to do other things: Work as a science/math/everything-else teacher, Research as a PhD Physics student, Love as a patient single woman. Too busy to write? These days I feel like I'm too busy to breathe!
"Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her." (Luke 10:41-42)
But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. (Revelation 2:4)
Back to first things first: LOVE GOD.
Then... LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
Then... Obey. Live my life to the fullest! Maximize! Excellence... Carpe diem!
And... if my schedule permits, or if the Spirit compels, then blog about it. ASAP.
Happy birthday, Teci's Testimony. We still have miles to go before I sleep, so be excited ;)
(And of course, THANK YOU GOD for my growing baby. :) )
