After writing about my Exclamation Marks and saying that I would write about the life lessons they represent to me, I was suddenly struck with self doubt.
"What was I thinking, that I thought I had 'life lessons' to share with anyone?" I thought.
As I share the thoughts that did come to mind over the next little while, let me say that just because they are things I believe to be true or helpful, does not mean I practice them well, although I try!
I won't write about my faith as one of my life lessons as that would diminish it somehow. The fact of faith is intrinsic to who I am. There are lessons that I could and have written about related to faith. They are different to the context of my Exclamation Marks--although any sound lesson can find its root and be confirmed in scripture--the pages of the Bible.
The underlying premise of my faith is this: God exists; an active relationship with him is possible; he loves each and every human with a love that is inconceivable and unconditional; his plans are best, but his ways are beyond understanding, and they are often opposite to accepted wisdom!
Well having said that I will begin--stay tuned!
