Heart of the Matter
Lately, like many others it seems, I have lost my 'umpah' to write with the heart I once used to. One of the obstacles I realized that I have set before me is wanting to please others in my writing. This is not what I set out to do with this blog. This blog was for me to explore all that weighed upon my heart and mind, to be transparent with my walk with God so that others might be encouraged. That being said, I recognize that I do write for others in some sense, but I should not be constrained into silence of the matters of my heart. Some of these matters are hard to write about, I rarely discuss them, let alone scribe them for anyone to gaze upon. Some other matters, I do not mind sharing, even though they may cause some discomfort - for the reader and for me.
To be real: to be real...it may not be pretty, but it is beautiful in the end. See as one who can see with the eyes of God the beauty, the truth, the reality of the one you gaze upon. Not in judgement, but in purity of Love...and rejoice - for you too are being viewed upon and loved...unconditionally. ~mp:)

I suppose I should write something. I have been reading over my blog posts of late and noticed that I have not been so "revealing"...
