Made Things

From My Journal–Doors

In between thinking about what to share here on my blog,  I thought I’d occasionally share some ‘aha’s from my journals……..these are some notes from May.
Doors are like plans.
Sometimes people hold a door open for you when your hands (your life) are full.

You also use them to leave and head out into the world.
Doors open/close, open/close–traffic comes and goes,
we come and go in and out to find pasture.
Sometimes they are closed for a reason
(it’s just not time).

Sometimes there is more than one choice.
There’s really only one door that matters.

Such quiet, powerful words over there.

    Hmmmm, indeed. I love it when we hear 'sacred echoes' throughout our day. Thanks for reading, Nancy.


    “Sometimes they're closed for a reason. It's just not time.” That's the second blog post I've read today that delivers a similar message. M-m-m. I think you've just delivered a God-note to me, Jody!

    Doors are one of my favorite symbols. Ever read Joyce Rupp's book, Open the Door. I think you would really like it.

    Thanks for sharing, Jody. I've been lax in journaling lately – maybe I need to try a new approach.
