Some very “Becky” randomness…

I know that I can’t be the only person that writes inspired thoughts down on near ’bout anything that’s close by. I try to keep notebooks EVERYWHERE – but it seems that my pen and receipts are drawn together with a magnetic force! Recently I have had quite a few moments of inspiration – I thought I’d share a few…

April 12th
In the Target parking lot – stressed and in a hurry, I was struck by a thought…
“This driver in front of me – forcing me to slow down….
This song on the radio – calming my mind…
I’ve got to slow down
I’ve got to find some calm
Need to enjoy the freedom of the road,
Soak in this song filled with so much soul…”

April 30th
While I was running I was thinking about my scattered loved ones – All over the map – I allow my heart to hurt while I run…I was struck by the similarities in my physical and emotional state while running…
“I’m working through the pain on this pavement
Working through the miles…
Making the distance disappear with every stride…
I see the finish line –
One more mile…One less tear.”

May 5th
Inspired by my momma…
“It was the place I could always go back to…
The place where my picture on the wall reminded me that I was someone’s favorite person…”

May 11th
I have no idea where I was when I penned this…But it certainly reflects the work of the Holy Spirit within me…
” I’m in a good place…
A thankful place.
a peace floods my soul
There’s joy in my singing – There’s a smile in my heart
You bring this warmth into my life.”

May 26th
I was cooking – Thinking about my childhood – Seeing lovely images of my family in my mind…
“I see my life in photographs in my mind – A moment of impression….
I feel my life in waves of emotion – In a certain sort of feeling…”

June 4th
I was finishing my run at sunset – looking into the vast night sky…Realizing how very small I am in this great big world…
“I am but a speck – Only magnified through Your eyes of love.”

I wanted to share these penned thoughts because I have no idea if they will ever amount to anything more than these few lines each – And I’ve decided to accept that. I love when the Holy Spirit nudges me to write down what’s in my heart…Sometimes it has shades of sorrow – sometimes it is filled with a melody of thankfulness and joy – and sometimes it’s the weaving together of my life and God’s plan being fulfilled.

Have a lovely day, my friends:)
Love, Beck
