This post originally appeared on Jan Prahl’s personal blog, Writing Under the Maple Leaves on April 18, 2015. She graciously shared it with us today.
This was me, today.
When I think of writing, This is the kind of idyllic spot that comes to mind.
(Even my blog name hopes to bring up this type of imagery)
But realistically, most of my writing happens more often in a place like this
(We eat at the other end of the table, Sewing, writing, and miscellaneous
crafting as well as homeschool planning and clutter happen at this end)
I want my house to look like this……..
(well not exactly like this, but neat and sweet like this)
But this is a more realistic view.
This was after several hours of play, my two shortshots, and two of my grandbabies.
Yes, four kids are in this photo, one is not visible, she’s sitting on her Aunt Sgirl’s lap.
My point is, where ever you are, enjoy your life and make the most of TODAY!
If you can do better, keep striving towards it, but don’t allow the distance from where you want to be and where you are to, hold you down.
Serve the Lord with Gladness…..Psalm 100:2
Whatsoever you do, so it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men. Colossians 3;23.
(PS, read that title to the tune of that song from days gone by “Brighten the corner where you are”)
