My favorite aisle in any store is the office supply aisle-you know, the one filled with empty notebooks. Sigh, could I just buy them all? I mean, is that really too much to ask? According to my husband, it is. 🙂
The reason I have been drawn to the notebook aisle since I was a little girl has to do with the wonder of staring at a blank sheet of paper and dreaming of all the ways I could fill it up with words. I love journaling about life when I get a chance in a notebook. It is so great to look back over the years of scribbles I have kept because I can see how God has grown me and changed me and how I still have lots of growth and change potential.
Or I could fill the pages with stories that I make up. That was my particular favorite way to use a blank page when I was a teenager. My friends and I would write story after story and share it with each other. Trust me, it was no great writing but the act of getting to imagine on paper truly is magical. From time to time, the urge to story write on blank pages comes back strong for me.
Finally, I love writing about my passions. I love writing “articles” as it were about what I am passionate about. That is where this blog is coming in. I wanted to get my articles off of dusty old notebooks and into the world for others to see and think over. My prayer is that as I share my stories of life and my passions with you, God will use them to grow you closer to Him and to help you find ways to better glorify and serve God.
What about you? Do you love staring at the potential of the blank page or computer screen? Or does it drive you nuts because you don’t know what to put down yet? Let me know. I would love to hear about what you fill your blank pages with and what you want me to share on my blog’s blank spaces in the future.
Thanks for reading! 🙂
