Since writing isn't coming very easy for me right now...


I've been in a bit of writing funk the past couple days.  (I'm calling it 'a bit of writing funk' because I'm not here to moan and groan about it, and that's what I do when I'm in a serious funk. Ha!)  Actually, I've been rather uninspired, and focusing on my different writing projects has been most difficult.  My brother had to tell me the other day to step back from writing for a bit and take a breath, so that's what I've been trying to do.  Just trying to relax and not worry about all the things I'm not getting done.  And you know what, it's been rather nice.  Being unproductive, I mean.  ;)
 

I'm just going to sit here and nibble on my carrot.  Ah, this is the life.
 
 
Anyhow.  I have tons of post ideas in my head at the moment, but as I said I'm in a writing funk so you're not going to get any of those today.   Instead, for this post I simply want to share a song with you.   It's called "Storybook Realities" and it's sung by B. J. Thomas.  I've been listening to this song quite a bit  ever since my siblings and I bought the CD for our mom for Christmas.  It's a song about dreams.  We all have dreams, right?  Things we want to accomplish in life.  Things we think will make us happy and fulfilled.  Well, this song is a beautiful reminder that our happiness and fulfillment come from God alone.  All our dreams are wrapped up in Him.  Apart from Him they're nothing.  He's our true happiness; and the only one who can fulfill the deepest longings and desires of our hearts.
 
 
 
 
 Have a lovely and blessed day!

  1. The part about nibbling on your carrot made me smile! :D

    I hope you can escape from your writing funk soon, but in the meanwhile enjoy your "break"! It is nice to just step back and breathe sometimes. :)

    And yes, so true! It is amazing how God gives us true happiness and contentment in any circumstances....even if we still have unfulfilled dreams. Dreams and goals are wonderful, but it's really only our relationship with Him that matters. :)

      True. It really is only our relationship with God that matters. Life would be meaningless without Him.

  4. Oh, I hope you get out of your writing funk soon, Miss March! I sure know how that feels! (Enjoy your carrot, haha.)
    Thanks for the song - it's got a nice old, comforting feel to it! :) Yes, dreams are something everyone has... but what you said was very true. (I'd actually been thinking about that lately, too!)
