Kelly, Zoo Girl, that’s YOU!! I know I have your address somewhere, but if you want to e-mail it to me again, that’d be swell. Thanks, Kell!
And now…Thoughtful Thursday. Don’t let the Deep Title scare you away. It’s not that big of a deal.
I’ve been thinking about something a lot lately. Well, not just lately. This is one of my normal thought patterns–a recurring theme running perpetual laps around my noggin.
What are you passionate about? And what are you doing about it right now?
I realize this is a loaded question. And even vague in some ways. Let me try to clarify. All of us have something we’re passionate about–something that lights a fire under us, makes us giddy, gets our creative juices pumping. Some of us have a lot of these somethings.
I think God created us to be passionate. And creative. And expressive. I think it looks different for everyone, but I think we can bring our Creator MUCH glory by doing what we love, doing it well, and giving Him the credit.
I really want to talk about this more later (pleeeease stop me from saying this one more time–it’s getting out of hand!) in greater detail when I’m not leaving for a 2-day retreat in 12 hours, and I haven’t packed or figured out quite exactly what I’m saying or gotten my family all situated for my absence.
One of my passions? Helping others pursue theirs. I love, love, love encouraging women (guys, too, but not as much) to find something they love to do and go at it. Yes, money is an obstacle. Yes, time is a problem. Yes, a family is a lot of work. But you’re up for the challenge–I just know it!
So, a question to get us started on This Thoughtful Thursday. It’s actually a three-parter:
1. What do you do for a living? (stay-at-home parent totally counts–or you can also tell me what you used to do for a job)
2. Is the job you have your “dream job” or does it just meet your family’s needs right now?
3. If you could do/be/pursue ANYTHING you wanted, what would it be?
Speaking to an awesome group of women tonight at 7:45, then again Friday and Saturday mornings. Would LOVE your prayers that I’d be filled with the Holy Spirit, speak God’s truth, and minister perfectly to individual hearts.
Bless you, guys! Have a fabulous day!
