Almost going home

I am extremely exhausted tonight. I had a great day. A lot of emotional processing. I looked at the stats on my blog today for the first time since beginning blogging. It turns out more than one person reads this. I am not entirely sure why, but they do. I am immensely honored. It makes me feel like I have a voice even if I do not know these apparently hundreds of faceless people. Or have any understanding of how they came across my blog. So thanks for coming and reading. I very much appreciate it.

I think I am about ready to be an author instead of a penniless writer. Maybe they are not as penniless. I have had quite a bit of trouble today imagining being ready to be done with vacation tomorrow. I can’t imagine living another year like this past year, but I seem to be about ready to embark on an even busier one. Well, the good part about it is next year I plan on having two vacations. How amazing!

I journaled some during my time with God today about the characteristics of a pioneer. It seems on some level I am one. So people tell me. It was good to know I am in a predictable place. Lots of people go through this. Not just me.

I read a devotional in a study Bible today about Isaiah’s calling. When Isaiah experienced God’s grace, he responded with “Here I am. Lord, send me.” I need to get better at that. I am getting to be less of a Jonah, but that used to be my best description ever. Sigh.

But God said to Jonah, “Is it right for you to be angry about the plant?”

“It is,” he said. “And I’m so angry I wish I were dead.”

But the Lord said, “You have been concerned about this plant, though you did not tend it or make it grow. It sprang up overnight and died overnight. And should I not have concern for the great city of Nineveh, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left—and also many animals?” – Jonah 4:9-11
