My roses are dead my violets are not blue but can I still say I love you?
I have started writing again but my time away from this blog has been for a reason. Only God knows the deepest of deepest inner heart feelings. Continuously broken and mixed. Wondering of doubts and closeness. God is truly The only one who I can go to, my father my all-time prince of peace.
What a wonderful day. I started my morning with French toast. It is not often that I eat French toast, I made it with a day old bread it could’ve been older, but I wanted to eat it today and it tasted great!
It’s the fourth day of my Daniel fast. For the people who don’t know what the Daniel fast is you can find a detailed explanation on the website of allaboutprayer.org. This a short version of the way I explain it; The Daniel fast is based on the verses 2 and 3 of chapter 10 in the book of Daniel. Daniel was a determined man with clear ideals and to achieve this he did not hide his feelings for anyone and was not out to please man. On the contrary , he took a personal initiative to begin a fast that kept him focused on what was truly God’s will.
“I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me – like food or water.”
Ray Charles could not have said it better. My mother have told me that I would move around in her womb on the sound of music. Coming from a grandfather who was a dancer, a home were music was our daily bread and my father who would start moving on the beat of the sounds of pots and pans, it was not strange that later in life I would be a music – dance lover.
Busy…busy…busy… so little time, so much to do. That is all I hear around me. Being busy all the time can creep up on you and before you know it, you will be a cranky person, who does not have time for the people around you but even worse not having time for God. STOP! and think about what you are doing, look around you and breath. Do not take the 24 hours that are given to you for granted, life is to short! It is time to live the abundant life. The question is, what is the abundant life? Well look no further than the book that can give you all the answers…the Bible!
