It's Not That I Have Nothing to Say...


It's not that my life has been quiet and calm and boring.
It's not that I have nothing to say.
It's not that I don't want to blog.

Sometimes there's just too much to say.
And never enough time.
Or there's too much to say, but here isn't the place.
Or I don't even know how to make sense of what I'm thinking.
And I have no idea how to put it into words for all the world to read.
Or if I did, I don't know that I'd want the world to read it.
Sometimes it's all just to raw and fresh and tender to share.

So, I say nothing.

Except this, the words of Fanny Crosby, the blind hymn writer:
Jesus doeth all things well!

I say that in blind faith today.
I look forward to being able to say that some day with hindsight.

Because my God is wise, and kind and good.
He's the God that has led me all my life long.
And I believe that He will continue to lead me to good,
as He always has.

I've been missing your blog, but I understand. Life is full, and busy, and not all of it should be published. :)

Would love to see you again, maybe I should have a 'Midwife Appreciation Supper' for all my nearest and dearest ones . . .

Except I'm sure I would never be able to have more than one at a time, and a baby would interupt it anyhow! Feel free to drop in for supper if you get a chance!! :)
