The Story In Just One Day
I recently read that most everybody thinks they have a book in them. Every morning when I'm running I write a new chapter in my brain. Yet I never seem to actually write anything. What would my running brain chapters actually have to offer anyone?
And why when I sit down to write in a journal or here on this blog the words won't come. The thoughts seem confused and nothing makes sense.
I do want to write my story. My own story of how I got to this place today. Not because it is a super compelling story, but just because it is mine and I will forget important parts of it...parts my girls will wonder about.
And then I look at just one day that I get to live and I feel like it is a story worth writing. Each day God gives us is a compelling part of our story...pain, rain, joy, frustration...it is our story and it is worth remembering.
