We all make them. While I was settling in at work this morning, I thought about my evening and how much I enjoy my writing. I was thinking it is a gift to write.
Looking at the statement on the page I think, Oh man! That could be taken a couple of ways. I hope I’m not making the wrong impression. I was grateful for the gift God has given me in writing. Writing fires my soul. It is something I want to do even when I’m dog tired (like tonight).
Of course the statement could be taken as a boast. That is not what I meant to do. Good thing God knows what’s going on in my heart. Sometimes the words we write or say have multiple meanings. In a world of sound bites and quick messages the intent is not clear. We make mistakes because…well…we do!
I made one in yesterday’s blog post. I was at work when I remembered it. At lunch, I asked myself; what will I write on the eleventh day of Christmas? Oh wait I already wrote about the eleventh day…Oh No!
When I got home tonight, I corrected my error on The Whirlwind. I thought about my correction. Should I say something or just leave it edited? Is being polished more important than honesty? Since I own this site and this is my blog, I can sneak into my little back door and make minor corrections and nobody is the wiser, except God, me and a sharp-eyed readers.
I chuckled as I imagined myself as a little girl trying to sneak in the back door to my computer. The image fueled my decision to leave the corrections in underline/strike-through. The post came from from my tired little heart and fingers last night…And the inspiration for this post was born.
The point is: On the eleventh day of Christmas I found another gift of God. He gives Love every day in spite of our mistakes and failures. He is unconditional Love.
Revel in Love today! God Loves You!
