I hope your weekend was a good as mine. I got a lot done, visited with friends, went to a crab feast, and enjoyed the much cooler weather that has come our way.
Yesterday, I had the chance to sit out on my patio for quite a while and catch up on my reading. It was great to be able to sit in my backyard for more than thirty minutes before being forced back into the air-conditioned coolness of the house. Can you feel the beginnings of fall? I can sense the changes coming, and I’m of the opinion that they’re good changes.
One change that has come to me recently is having the time to do some pleasure reading. Having read literally thousands pages for my courses earlier this summer, I could hardly get my eyes to focus on a page. Well, I’ve recovered from that, and now, I’m enjoying a return to some books I’ve wanted to read 🙂
Although I’ve only been able to read the back cover, one book I’m looking forward to getting into is I Wasn’t Dead When I Wrote This, written by a youth minister named Lisa-Marie Calderone-Stewart. Sadly, she wrote this book while very ill with cancer, which ultimately took her life.
There were three bits of wisdom on the back cover that gave me much to think about this weekend, and I can’t wait to read more. I hope these three bullet points also give you something to think about this week, and maybe even lead to some much-needed changes in your life.
- Learning how to forgive is one of the most essential tasks of adulthood.
- You don’t have to save the world. You only have to find the one area in which you can serve.
- Don’t waste a minute of your life regretting who you are or wondering why you couldn’t be some other person. You are just what the world needs right now.
Certainly gives us something to think and pray about, don’t you agree? Have a great week!
