A Time to Look Inward...

Recommended Posts

I used to have confidence in my ability to communicate, verbally to be sure, in print maybe not so much. Too often my typing abilities are either in lead or lag, of my mind, concerning what I wish to say. As a result in many different social forums, I find myself being misunderstood, or misrepresented. 

So, it is time to find out where and how that process came to be. Time to look inward, and see where I may improve, and to see if it is possible, to do better, or too redeem oneself. Maybe it is a possibility to do so, maybe not? Regardless of where this journey takes me, it has been both fun and frustrating. 

But life, "my life" is to short now, to unintentionally undo all that I sought out, to do. So for a while at least, I need to look into the scriptures and my soul, before I lose my soul. 

Love too all...

Papa

That is a beautiful thought, Papa Lee.  You have had much influence here.  I have felt the sweet Spirit of the Holy Ghost many times in your words, including these.  Your words remind me of a poem I am sure you are familiar with.  It is titled:

          A Sonnet on His Blindness

When I consider how my light is spent
Ere half my days in this dark world and wide,
And that one talent which is death to hide
Lodg'd with me useless, though my soul more bent
To serve therewith my Maker, and present
My true account, lest he returning chide,
"Doth God exact day-labour, light denied?"
I fondly ask. But Patience, to prevent
That murmur, soon replies: "God doth not need
Either man's work or his own gifts: who best
Bear his mild yoke, they serve him best. His state
Is kingly; thousands at his bidding speed
And post o'er land and ocean without rest:
They also serve who only stand and wait." 

John Milton
