Monday 4/12/10 - "WORDLESS"

"WORDLESS"

Now that I am feeling better I was ready to be able to concentrate on a blog. Well, I do have my focus back, but when it comes to writing a blog, for some reason my mind is "wordless". Some kind of block? I feel like the poor fellow above - all feet - not enough brain.

On a second brief thought, this may not be such a bad thing. It's not good for writing, but it has an upside. I am an over-analyzer, a thinker, a person whose mind sometimes just won't quit. Anyone reading this able to relate? It can be a big blessing to have it slow down. I am also a pretty serious person and it is good to lighten up.

The other day I happened to say to my sponsor, "My mind is blessedly blank." I feel discouraged that it is so difficult to come up with a blog, but I think I will just turn it around for today and say how grateful I am that my brain isn't in overdrive and there is a peace and serenity that is filling it at this moment.

I am off to the hospital shortly. I missed last week when I was sick. Each time I volunteer it is like a gigantic surprise. I never know what will happen, who I will see, what God will choose to do. One thing I am certain of, I will be blessed.

Love you all,
Prayer Girl

Are you a Gemini, PG? Even "wordless" you came up with a fine post. I was happy to start the day with it.

I understand! My blogging has been a bit slow of late. I think I am in ebb mode! The tide will turn, I'm sure.

Andrew said...

Oh yes, you are Blessed.

It is ok to feel wordless. Sometimes words just get in the way.

Blessings.

"My mind is blessedly blank."

That is what a high school teacher told me once. I do not remember his using the word "blessedly"...

This I DO know, that in the hospital today, more then a dozen peeps will be blest through your healing touch.

Yesterday a Peep reminded me about being "healed through your touch"--more than two years ago!
Bless you, PG, and love, too.

Oh I LOVE the pic of the Blue Footed Booby...they are amazing.

On the note of the brain being filled, I completely get that, it is blessed when I feel empty, so I understand those feelings quite well.

I hope that your day at the hospital is joyous and loving...
take care ...

Sometimes the words come and other times they are a bit reticent in flowing. I think that you do just great being who you are.

The blue footed booby reminds me of Pam (blue)

I'm glad you're feeling better, I'd bet you met and felt the spirit through a few people yesterday at the hospital (which is always fun to read about).

I wish and pray so many blessings to you that your blog cannot contain them!

What a cool pair of blue "shoes." Must be from North Carolina! I'll take you wordless any day!!!

Hi PG. I thought of you often recently as I notice the volunteers at the hospital during Rosalie's last hospitalization. Those smiles from those loving men and women helped many of us get through the day. Hope you feel better.
And yes, a blank mind can be a blessing. I think it is God's way of saying "REST."

Boy, I can definitely relate to everything you wrote. A blank mind is a terrible thing to waste. I think of all the hours spent in meditation trying to create just that!

I think there is a general lull in the blog world right now. Must be a case of spring fever. Love the photos!
