Hello readers and bloggers. Goodbye, March madness and salutations April. The months go by like crazy. Time seems to have no meaning as you get older. Let’s reflect on how my March went.
Pigs must have flown somewhere, because I shared my mediocre poetry with all of you. I don’t know what made me decide to share my poems, but I’m glad I did. Maybe it was all of you. Seeing how bold and open some of you are with what you share on your blogs must have motivated me to do the same. I even wrote a poem for the first time in over 3 years. I pray that I can continue to write more poetry as much as I once did. In regards to blogging, I feel as though I’ve grown, and I wish to keep on growing. You guys have a hand in that just by reading, liking, and commenting. I appreciate it.
I learned that some efforts are not in vain. It was an old woman at a nursing home, playing a hymn on the piano, who taught me this. So what if not a lot of my church members take part in our nursing home ministry. All that matters is that we share the gospel with others; that the residents take something from the singing and the small sermons. Perhaps God was speaking to me through that elderly woman to let me and my parents know we weren’t wasting our time.
I need to cut back on the caffeine. I used to drink cold coffee just in case I was feeling worn out. But now I drink a quarter of it before a shift even when I’m wide awake. That French vanilla is my favorite. No more. It’s back to “only if I need it”. While it’s not alcohol, caffeine is a stimulant. The body can do without that extra kick. The only stimulant I need in my life is the word of God.
On that note, I could open up the Bible more. You can never open it up enough times in your life. Sometimes I feel as though my relationship with Christ is a bit one sided. It’s not Him, it’s me. I could do more. There is no way I could repay Him for all He does- air in my lungs, a job, a roof over my head, my talents. However, I could give Him more of my time and attention as I do in everything else.
I think my April is off to a good start. No April Fools Jokes. Instead I went to church, and I gave special music to my church members. It’s amazing how different songs can go so well together, especially songs of worship. I took a song from scripture, “Seek Ye First”, and a song that was in head for so long, “Sanctuary”, and I mashed them together. The church seemed to love it. I always get butterflies before going up to sing, but as I’m singing I know that God has me in His hands.
(Don’t worry I didn’t walk into church with that hat tiled, nor did I walk into the sanctuary with it. They’d talk about me.)
How was your first day of April? How was your March? I wanna know! Happy Sabbath. Have a good day, and God Bless.
