Living and Writing on Purpose: God * Life * Love * Realtionships * The Important Things.

The residual anxiety continues to plague me…

On the Hopechest blog I posted a page in “Casting my Burdens upon the LOrd” or whatever title in that realm it is…Burdens or Cares. Aren’t they slightly different things or am I indulging in the Literal-ity of things again. I’m going to write my own dictionary someday…I mean this language has been watered down, diminished and revised to be lesser anyway! Why not make up my own stuff…Webster and Merriam have been rolling in their perspective graves for years with what is contained in their volumes of the word!!!

Anyway, I must focus here!

It’s my birthday…hence the tweety glitter I posted for myself. And I have purposed not, NOT, to allow myself to expect the same old life format as I have always expected. And while focusing on the amazing Hand of God in my life…and I am blessed, I know this. I was blindsided by anxiety attacks, severe ones, yesterday. The only way it could have been worse is if I had been driving, especially with the gas prices these days! LOL.

Anywho! Its my birthday and Don gave me a beautiful card…and he wrote:

“We shall do the Impossible This Year!”

As horrible as I physically and emotionally feel from the anxiety hangover, this is the most wonderful thing I could have received.

My husband, a wonderfully intelligent and gentle man, is also very quiet.  His emotions are always something I am left to define on my own, and I am not good at it. I make up for it in communicating what I am defining this as, so that he can correct me if I am wrong.

A quiet man...says much!

A quiet man...says much!

So as I deal, as quietly as possible, with this anxiety hangover, I will dwell upon my husbands words. Because I love it when he is profound and answers my questions without me having to ask. And what he wrote and the entirety of the card he chose confirms our choices of late, in the Lord. And because the words he gave me for my birthday sound just like these words that I have been enthralled with!:

step out into the Irresistible Future with Him.” ~ Oswald Chambers

Thank you, I think I will.

Blessings to all of you from me to you on my birthday! =)

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
