I love words! 
I am not great with grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. 
But I still love words. 
I love what they represent, what they say, and what they mean.
So I thought I would change the name of this page to reflect that. 
This page is going to be more than a 'blog' page... 
It will be my thoughts, ideas, opinions, loves, likes, feelings...... 
It will be - my words.

I sometimes feel like I am drowning.
I panic. 
I try to grasp everything in sight. 
Grabbing at things in all different directions - Flailing around - Gasping for air.
When we panic while in troubled waters, we will take on water, we will tire, we could drown; 
but if we just allow ourselves to be 
let go of trying to be in control of everything
and to just float on our backs
 we will ride the waves and allow them to guide us back to safety. 
I need to have FAITH that God knows what He is doing. 
But do I? 
Do I have doubt? 
Can Doubt and Faith take up the same space? 
Can I have Doubt and Faith at the same time?
I don't know. I hope not. I pray that I don't. 
I do not want to doubt. 
I do know that I need to quit flailing about. 
I look ridiculous running around with my arms flying above my head 
with my brow all wrinkled and scrunched up. 
Kicking and screaming.... 
Taking on water and possibly drowning.
I need to TRUST.
I need to have FAITH.
God has got this! He has it ALL!!
It is time for me to relax, float, and believe that I am being directed to safety. 
I KNOW that HE has the perfect plan for my life. 
He has a perfect plan for your life.
He promised.

Jeremiah 29:11

New Living Translation (NLT)

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory, but now it's blurry, no literally.

Here I sit at my kitchen table.

It is hard to see.

As every minute passes, I get older. 

What I have noticed changing the most in this last year, are my eyes… my eyes are getting older. Heck, I have had them since I was born. Not only have I not been able to see long distances without corrective lenses since I was in the fifth grade, but now, alas, my near sightedness is now failing. Anything that is 18 inches or closer, I struggle to see! Sad, really.

I love to read.

I love to hand write.

I love to draw.

I love to type.

Ahhhh how I miss the days where I did not have this struggle. 

I now also know why they advise you not to have babies in your forties… 

It’s not just because it may be harder on your body, No! It is MOST definitely because when you are holding them in your arms, snuggling them, you won’t be able to see them...

they are nothing but blur. 

Being a human who loves to wear contact corrective lenses, and has always worn them, I am now at the point of trying to adapt into glasses. Ah, glasses, how I loathe thee. Why, you ask? I can’t see out of the sides. My peripheral vision is blurred. OH the dilemma I am faced with. 

Where are the large print Bibles?

Where are the large print word finds?

Where is the zoom button for my desktop screen?

Where is the Accessibility Settings on my phone to make everything larger?

No, No, No… I do not want bifocals, but I really do think the time has come.
