It’s been a week of April showers and as my mom used to say, “April showers bring May flowers.” I started painting flowers one summer when my allergies were so bad, I couldn’t venture into my garden. I’m not nearly as inspired as my husband is to paint. I’d rather paint with words, but some days you need to broaden your horizons. Trying something we aren’t in the habit of doing – walking in a different neighborhood – venturing beyond the safety of our own backyard – stepping outside the box – can seem forboding to some while exciting to others. Somewhere in between there has to be a happy medium.

Taking that first step into the unknown is the hardest. Anytime we’re called upon to do something we’ve never done before, or are challenged to explore different avenues it can be downright scary. But even as we age, there is no end to the discoveries we are yet to experience. By passing them by, we’re losing an opportunity. Try something new today!


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    We’ve got the flowers down here in Arkansas. Daffodils and Bartlett pears are already done; redbuds and dogwoods and tulips are flourishing. But along with the flowers, we are having spring thunderstorms, complete with hail and drenching rain, thunder and lightning, and the threat of tornadoes. Happy times. J.
