Just returned from the mothership in Pennsylvania…a committee meeting Thursday night, then an all-day pre-Chapter meeting on Saturday. All day Friday grading, and I’m still not done…shoot – was hoping to have all day tomorrow off, since it’s my 50th birthday. But I should have it done by noon, so I can take a half day!
Just started a new novel, called “Bethlehem Road Murder”, by Batya Gur. I was intrigued by the first sentence…
There comes a moment in a person’s life when he fully realizes that if he does not throw himself into action, if he does not stop being afraid to gamble, and if he does not follow the urgings of his heart that have been silent for many a year – he will never do it.
I am so grateful to God for the gift of an adventurous spirit, of a consciousness to live out of hope rather than fear. It’s so freeing to be able to just be who I am, without apologies or shame, and not overly dependent on the approval of others.
