I have been writing...

“If you want to change the world, pick up your pen and write.” 

I have been writing...a lot.  
I usually get pen to paper. Ink flowing freely.
Thoughts about those I love.
Thoughts about those I have trouble loving.
Funny things that spring from the mouths of people I know.
Especially my children.
As tears fall hot from my eyes to the point where I can hardly write,
Ink mingling with paper moist and at ripping point, 
I scribble words of fear, anger and anxiety.
My pen doodles flowers, swirls, hearts and owls. 
I try to ponder things that bring me joy or at least a smirk to my face.
I glide the pen - always medium point - to record Scripture that I want to commit to memory.
I jot in margins things I need to do, buy, write and say. 
I neatly list goals and dreams and things I want to DO in 2012.

I want to share all these things here - but I find that I can not.   I share what is safe and even struggle with that.
I feel like I should be truly free to write words that need to come out - to let me fly - to really let me soar.
But I wait...


  1. So beautiful. I think that is why I haven't "blogged" in a while. Because the things I want to write about are too personal and sometimes too painful. <3 love you sis.

  2. There is such much Scripture about "write down these things"...... that has encourage me in the past! But always, I love to write Bible verses...... LIVING WORDS
    Hugs, Heidi
