2017 SPRING ISSUE | CHOICES 13
the sounds of birds; leaving the topic on a shelf at the back of my mind. Or time to pick up a book, any book. Reading occupies the mind, giving it a chance to leave the need to complete the task without being blocked by over-thinking it. The best inspiration most often comes after midnight on Saturday evening. I head to bed with no idea what I’ll say the next day. I have a scripture, I’ve chosen a few quotes that relate to what it says. But, a twenty-minute lesson? No inspiration, just words that don’t feel right. Trust spirit, trust inspiration, take a deep breath and pray. Sunday mornings are too busy to worry about what I haven’t written. Coffee in hand, I head to church, trusting and waiting for inspiration. And after waiting all night, right on cue, inspiration comes.
