A Backwards Look & A Sideways Glance

Good drivers not only look ahead out the broad front windshield, but regularly glance into the rearview mirror to see what's behind.  Really good drivers use the side mirrors as well, to catch a glimpse of what might be coming alongside.  

We're wise to do the same as this year closes and a new one is ready to dawn. 

I invite you to take time to pick and choose the topics that grab your attention.  Some questions need to be prayed through.  Sit and ponder.  Journal your conversation with God.  Discover the gifts He desires to share with you, borne from your pain, your joy, your journey. 

> Delightful, Serendipitous Surprises

> New Skills, Hobbies, & Challenges Explored  

> Ridiculous Energy Drainers 

> People I Blessed & Encouraged 

> Life-Changing, Faith-Stretching Lessons Learned 

> Bone-Headed, Impulsive Choices I Won't Make Again 

> Powerful Books Read 

> Ways I Became More Like Jesus 

> Colossal Wastes of Time 

> Quality Relationships Developed  

> Movies, Plays, and TV Shows That Provided Insight 

> Poor Uses of Money 

> People Who Greatly Impacted My Soul

> Toxic Junk I Could Afford To Lose

> Gifts I Discovered God's Given Me

Moving Ahead Together ~

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...
