OK, so most of you who read this blog (actually, I am guessing all of you) know me on facebook, and therefore know that I am now residing in Texas. I am currently writing up a list of goals to keep up on or to meet while I am here, before I move back to Oregon. One of those is to write more regularly. For now that means posting at least once a week on both of my blogs (this one & Food For A Pilgrim) as well as journaling at least once a week. Maybe my fiction and poetry will resurrect during at some point. But for now, I believe this is a good start. So, starting next week, I will begin posting. I hope everyone reads and comments as often as possible. I hate to think that my blog will never get read. :)
For now, I will leave you with this passage that touched me today (thank you, Summer):
“Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. The commandments, ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ ‘You shall not murder,’ ‘You shall not steal,’ ‘You shall not covet,’ and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.”
(Romans 13:8-14, NIV)
It kind of sums up the character development I would like to see in myself while I am in Texas.
