The words I think

A million words run through my brain
Some of them I think
Will make it to the blog
But mostly they stay in my brain.
It  seems the thinking is stronger than the writing

The words do not come to the blog.
Instead they run havoc inside my thinker ,
rarely shutting down.
I may not write them, but I surely do think them:

I think about writing these things:
* teaching math to children
* the year that I was glad to leave and how it showed that I made no worthwhile connections,
* how we can be certain whether or not we are going to heaven
* my heart as a mom with one child home catching a snapping turtle in my backyard while one was on a college exploration trip
* the lesson I am learning about the gift of now due to two dear people that are now engaged in battle against cancer, and
* how our lives are significant whether or not we ever write a book, or a musical, or give a speech but that there is great value in being faithful in the everyday ordinary things,
* how I have three homes: my hometown, my current town and my future town in heaven,
* how God transformed the most difficult thing in my life into a love letter,
* how He sees me. Really sees me. 

Oh, how many thoughts I think.
Oh, how often I think of writing them.
But writing and thinking them are not the same thing.


  1. I do manage to write a lot on my blogs but still there is so much more that I'd like write there as well as books, stories, articles, and so on. We have to push ourselves to write. Don't lose those precious thoughts by keeping them locked inside of you. Just write.

    But I know. Sometimes it's more easily said than done.

    Good luck with it.

  2. I can SO relate to this. So many thoughts swirl, but capturing them can sometimes be so difficult! Even just writing about that struggle counts, though. I'm right there with you!

    1. I thought that starting with the whirling would be a step in the right direction! Thanks for encouragment.

  3. So many words, so little time. :) I identify with you in this! Thanks for linking up with us at Grace & Truth.


Thanks for being part of the conversation...I love hearing from you. Kathleen
