Stuck in the Middle!

February 26, 2013


When Sandra Bullock got up to present an award at the Oscars last night, I remembered her words at the very end of Hope Floats when Birdie shares things her mama always used to say.

Beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it’s the middle that counts the most. You need to remember that when you find yourself at the beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up.

Sometimes life feels like one long middle – one monotone list of sameness.

But then there are other times, like these days for me, when the middle drops from under my feet and life feels more like a series of endings and beginnings folding over one another.

If you’re standing in the middle, I hope you’ll remember it hasn’t always been this way and one day it won’t be like this again. Collect what you need, be faithful where you are, and remember the sacred gift of ordinary days.

If you’re stepping into a beginning, remember love drives out fear, you are not alone, and courage will grow as you move.

And if you find yourself approaching an ending, looking back over the colorful mess of joy and sorrow that have shaped all the days before,  give yourself permission to grieve your losses, celebrate your loves, and anticipate the start of something new.

Are you in a middle, a beginning, an ending, or some combination of all three?

Don’t have a typewriter, a Windows XP or equivalent, can’t Fax, mail or post on some sites, and this KINDLE FIRE device does not support flash player, beta. I call that stuck in the middle. No car, truck or Moped(Scooter)! I call that stuck one middle too. So I guess the question is what can I do to change this, and get unstuck?


BULLFROGS & Butterflies!

In the Spring, they are both out in abundance. Birds are chirping like they are supposed to do. THEY NEVER GET permission first, they don’t need to! God created them to chirp and squall, fuss along the way! It’s part of their nature, it’s their job to make noise… They want to be heard, like God does, and I know one in particular that God is using to teach that lesson, their is a Mule in ear shot of home, who has an uncanny way of braying at the most perfect moment, squawking Bird or talking donkey, which do you choose?
