A Thinking Machine

My husband and I have lived in 13 different places during the past twenty-plus years. For the past year, he's been in Scotland, and when he comes home, more than likely we'll be facing relocation again. I left my 'nesting instinct' in one of those 13 places. Relocation always plays havoc with my creative side so I may have left that behind too. Moving is difficult.

Before packing one box, I do an Internet search for writing groups in the area. The sooner I connect with other writers the better off I am emotionally, mentally and yes, even physically. It's great to have writing friends lined up and waiting for me when I get to the next new town. Of course, that's only happened once. :(

I can hardly stand the thought of moving again. But, on the other hand, I can hardly stand the thought of going through another hurricane. In view of these two hardlies I'd say the best thing for me to do is to:

1) pray for God's hedge of protection around our home, family and friends.
2) turn it all over to God and let Him have our future since He's got it anyway whether I turn it over to Him or not. :)
3) pray for wisdom and
4) clean house.

I know from studying His Word that there's a reason for everything so Lord, heal my impatience and let me wake up every morning eagerly watching and listening for the surprises you have in store for me. Amen

I've been told I think and worry entirely too much. I'm always trying to figure things out. Here's a pic of my brain pattern. Works for me!

Your Brain's Pattern

Your mind is an incubator for good ideas, it just takes a while for them to develop.
But when you think of something, watch out!
Your thoughts tend to be huge, and they come on quickly - like an explosion.
You tend to be quiet around others, unless you're inspired by your next big idea.

Wow--that really is your brain! If you move, I will be oh, so sad. I missed your posts. Glad you're back...Now, go write!
