As most of you know, Lewis loves all things YELLOW.
So when the rains come, Lewis can't wait to put on his YELLOW raincoat and YELLOW rain hat and spend time visiting with the YELLOW ducks who always find their way to the Little Puddle after a rainfall.
Throughout the years, I have started journaling in all kinds of books...But the composition notebook calls to me in a way no other journal has. It feels like "home" when I am writing and adding all kinds of odds and ends.
I look forward to beginning a new journal as this one is almost filled to the brim AND all the way to the last page!
I have immersed myself in Bible study, books on Scripture, devotionals, prayers, etc. over the past 6 months.
The more time I spent studying Christianity, the more restrictive it felt to me.
I have always believed that God is at the hub of the Spiritual Wheel and there are many spokes, which in my mind, connect each individual to his/her Creator.
We do, indeed, bloom where we are planted and religions will vary as much as cultures.
I believe the Great Creator endowed us with the ability to communicate with Him on many levels and each of us must find our own way to do that.
I also believe respecting, embracing, and not judging the faith of others is a step toward world peace.
Yes, there will always be extremists of every faith who will distort the foundations religions were built upon. We have seen what religious wars have done throughout all civilizations, including our own present time. But we can overcome those fears and prejudices and look toward the light of each faith.
The Youngblood's song, "Get Together" speaks volumes...to me.
