In my twenties my diaries no longer had locks, were referred to as journals, and remained hidden from the eyes of on-lookers. Thoughts transferred onto the pages proved that this stage of life was a period of trial and error in relationships. At twenty-five years old, an entry before a major surgery contained this thought, "If I die from complications of this surgery, and you found this journal and have read up to this point, I am sorry if my words and actions hurt you. Dear God, please forgive me for my sins."
During my thirties, my journals became a place of reflection of my life. Questioning God why my life did not turn out how I had planned was often penned with tears in my eyes. Guilt and regret from decisions I made in my twenties made their debut and became common topics.
Currently, in my forties, my journals have grown. I've made peace with God and have written many prayers of praise and thanksgiving for graciously carrying me through my teens, twenties and thirties. My journals have married with technology giving birth to a blog. My matured thoughts and contemplations have moved off the hand-written page and are saved on my computer as documents. The words are cleaned, pressed, and ready for visitors to read on an internet blog site where I collaborate with the Holy Spirit.
Whether writing a diary, a journal or a blog, there is a correlation with personal growth in every decade of my life. My once locked, hidden thoughts have become matured contemplations placed on public display. My words and I cordially invite you to spend time with us.
