I see peach and aqua leisure suits, shag haircuts…my favorite record album, or as they call them today, vinyl. England Dan and John Ford Coley. And I hear these words…”Hello now, it’s been awhile…not much, how bout you”.
I can’t remember a birthdate or year for the life of me…but here I am singing the 1970’s song in my head. The song came to mind when I thought of you…it’s been awhile…actually a long while, over a year. And, I miss you. I miss sharing my, sometimes very random, thoughts. I miss chuckling at myself, and know you chuckle, too. I miss knowing that the words that came out on the page, were just what the Holy Spirit had planned.
And so, I’m back! Where have I been? Following my dream.
Actually, I just read my last post…over a year ago. I remember exactly the day I prayed for God’s direction and felt his answer. I believe that was the moment that God said, “I’m giving you your heart’s desire…now is your time.” Sorry following my dream somehow meant letting “49andcounting” go. It just did. But today is my time to revisit you all. And hope that time and distance hasn’t separated us.
I have old friends that I rarely see, but when we do…it’s like nothing has changed. And I haven’t changed much. (more grey hair, further away from 49 than I’d like to be…oh, maybe a few other things)
I pray the words come to me again, that God gives me the gift of time to write to you, and that your heart and mine will be smiling together as we honor Him.
