not mentioned since I now have a more permanent means of expressing myself: * while I was living with the boy-friend (much later, I split from--verbally abusive), I sensed God giving me a dream to not only help me out, but ultimately help a great number of other folks. This dream was a 2-parter: the 1st--shoot a lot of photos with my (then) Minolta Srt101 film camera, post those photos on-line for people to buy. Part 2--from the profits of those photos, I would create a foundation to begin funding a homeless shelter & services better than what's in my community currently--the one I feel I'm led to begin will be strictly Christian policies firmly in place. No one will be turned away, unless the shelter full. Additionally, the message of the Gospel will be shared, gently to those who are in need or to those who are curious There will no ramrodding Jesus Christ's message of everlasting life to anyone who comes through the doors of this shelter or of its services. Then, that went down the the proverbial toilet, when I broke up with b.f--losing everything I owned because of the infestation of 3 species of bugs, I was instructed not to bring anything to my new 'digs'. I thought for certain that 2-part dream was gone, forever!!! Of course, if the Lord God is the one inspires to do something and circumstancesseem to waylay that something, it "don't mean diddly squat", because the Lord is, by far bigger than any circumstance. * I, then, received my 2nd camera--a Minolta X-700 film camera! The camera was already loaded with 2-year-old film. I got as well a package of film and a bag.
Life has been crazy lately, and I haven't seen my daily writing habit in months. I have a hundred blog posts written, but I forget exactly where they are, and I remember thinking none of them were amazing. So I'm in that position that I created that habit to get out of: it's the night before a post is "due", I'm unwilling to skip a day, and I've sat here for an hour writing intro sentences for a million different posts.
I wanted to write about how, when giving advice, I used to always just tell people to do exactly what I do. In time, I realized that the best way to support someone is to give the advice that will bring them closer to their goals and desires, rather than what you'd do with their resources to get to your own goal. I think I already wrote that post, though, and I'm not sure if I posted it or not. Then I realized that I spent about four hours today explaining to my friends why they should buy bitcoins and possibly buy a plane. So maybe I'm not so good at that, after all.
I scrapped that post and came back to an empty box. What am I thinking about these days, I asked myself?
Well, I have one cool project I'm doing, but it would ruin it to talk about it before it's done, so I have to wait on that. I know exactly what the blog post is going to be, though, and I can't wait to write it.
