words of wisdom

~God can only steer a moving ship~

I really like that. So many days, especially with the call to adoption, I just feel like standing still. It's way easier. I get stubborn and depressed and would rather just do nothing.

But as my friend Kristin reminded me "God can only steer a moving ship"....so when I feel like plopping myself down on the couch and saying 'FORGET IT' or when I dream of running off to live in 'my special country'all by myself ....(yeah, I REALLY like THAT one) ...I need to stop and focus on what's important , what I feel called to do ...and how to accomplish it. Which is NOT always easy at all.

BUT...

I need to be a moving ship, not one docked and resting, which is easier.

Thanks Kristin, now that was sweet and mild mannered...wasn't it?!

  2. Wow! How did I not feel my entire body getting tingly all over when you posted this extremely nice blog entry? Guess because I was in PA with family the past weekend and am still recovering from the travelling. I'm glad that those words resonated with you--I know they did for me the first time I heard them years ago!

    I'll go back to my original opinion of you as the sweet, funny lady from Minnesota!

    Love you!
    Kristin
