Emotional Writing...Or NOT!

You would think that being in an emotional state would be great motivation to put pen to paper...or fingers to keyboard. That is definitely not the case with me. I can't bring myself to write. I don't know why that is.

It is just that we are about to lose our home of 12 years. The only home my 2 younger kids have known. I keep telling myself that it is just a house and I will be able to make a home out of any old house.

I find the difficulty lies with two things:

1. My daughter is very sad. The tears come in an instant when we discuss anything about the process. We aren't going to move far, so they will be able to stay in the same school, but it is just hard for her.

2. There is sooooo much to do that I don't feel like I have the stretch of time needed to write creatively. Yet, here I sit blogging away, changing the template, finding more blogs to read, and more. What a waste.

I need to just write a page a day. That's all. Just a page. Maybe that will get the juices flowing and keep me sane during this crazy time.

Oh yeah....did I mention that my son just got married? Yep. Lots of stuff going on in my life. But God is gracious. I know that there is purpose in everything, His Word is true and we shall be overcomers.

  1. I was in a similar position a few years ago. In fact, I ended up not writing for three years, and yes, we lost our home and had to move to a new city where I took a new job that is now possibly coming to an end. So here I am again, wondering what will happen and where we'll be in a few months. But God took care of us in the last storm and I know He'll take care of us through this one--and you too! So don't worry about not writing for a couple of days. Maybe He needs to tell you something different than what's going to go into your book--something to give you renewed hope and peace.

    Many blessings,

  2. I'm so sorry to hear that Aunt Sherrinda. Please let me know if there is anything we can do to help make the situation better.

    Maybe I need to take you out for a girl's night to relieve some of the stress!
