Peace and Drama
June 18, 2010 § Leave a comment
I opened up an old journal, and exactly four years ago today (June 18, 2006) I went to a church service and heard these words that were appropriate then, and again now.
4Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
I wish I could say I have been productive in my writing today. My writing friend Adam and I have decided to meet for an hour two times a week to sit down and write. Today was a rather emotional day for me, and I did not want to write. I sat down and Adam said, “Write one sentence.” And I did. And then I wrote a few more. In one hour’s time, I only wrote a few lines of dialog, but something is better than nothing.
I video chatted with Ben again tonight, and got to see the latest action figures he’s been building (or rather, customizing) and listened to him sing and play guitar. I do love his voice so.
It is time for bed, but over and over I need to hear these important words to rejoice and not be anxious. I desire peace. Good night.
