Well, almost 3 months, 8 viruses and $150 later I am finally back to writing!! It's been a good little break, although I've lost my entire readership. However, I'm determined to get back into the groove and work on doing those things which I feel God has called me to do.
I am currently in the midst of directing our fledgling community theater's first production which will be held this coming weekend. As I have never directed a play before, it's been a really good challenge for me. Luckily, my father is a 30 year theater director veteran, so I've had lots of help!! I've learned a lot about leadership and that sometimes you just have to make a decision and go with it, regardless of its popularity. :-) I've made mistakes and grown from them and have developed some skills I didn't even know I had.
I guess this is the process of life itself. We move forward through experiences and challenges, growing and changing along the way. We learn about ourselves, and others, and how we fit into this world. We unlock hidden potential and see the gifts God has placed within us to further advance his kingdom. We get frustrated and hurt, make mistakes (sometimes colossal) and grow in maturity through it all. We "fix our eyes on the prize for which God called us heavenward through Christ Jesus", understanding that even though our life has not evolved in the way we imagined or envisioned when we first developed the script, it is a good and faithful production of what God has given us to do. At the end of the journey the best we can hope to hear is, "Well done, good and faithful servant. Welcome home!"
Blessings and Peace,
