So, here we are – another October, another Write 31 Days. After a three month break from writing, I’m excited to have this challenge again to write for 31 Days in a row. I have decided this years, 31 Days will be on Reflections. Some of these reflections will be hard to write, a glimpse into my story; but I want the reflections to ultimately point to my Heavenly Father and all He has done for my children and I.
Up front, I will let you know this first week of October is brutal. This is my introduction to me coming back to write, but in all honestly, I probably won’t be back to write until after Monday – the 5th. Yes, I’m starting with nothing written in advance, knowing I will start out 5 days “behind”. But if I don’t start now – when will I? I’ll be linking up in the Family Life category – most of these written reflections will be about our single-parent home.
…so, here is to starting anyway (this is huge growth for me: knowing in advance I’m not exactly going to follow the rules and I’m starting anyway!). I will be reflecting on my story, but hopefully you will see His reflection through what I write.
Reflect | a verb.
- to throw back without absorbing (heat, light, sound).
- to think deeply or carefully about.
And the above is just because I had to look up the word reflect to make sure it wasn’t contrary to my verses and One Word for 2015. These posts will be reflections, not dwelling on the past, but lots of reflections of the last 15 years of being a single parent.
Crazy note on the picture above – the mountains are MILES away from the water, yet they are reflected in the water as if they were right next to each other. Also, that water was only about 10″ deep…..again, the reflection is still there.
