So I’m looking at my list and I am struck by the niggling feeling that I left something out. I know I said that it was a working list and that things would be added. But as I kept rereading my list I kept asking myself, “what did I forget to write down?” And I took the biggest intake of breath I’ve ever taken. How could something so important, so integral in my life be left out? How could I forget?
My faith and my relationship with my God is a fundamental part of my life whether I talk about it or not. I would, however, love to talk about my journey in faith much more than I do. I’ve always been afraid of sounding too preachy or “religious”. But why should I be afraid? Why should I not talk about a part of me that strengthens me, that more often than not, carries me through my life journey?
My faith and my relationship with God gets me through everything – all the highs and lows of my life are underlined by how I see God working in my life. Why shouldn’t I talk about this wonderful relationship that is a constant in my life?
So the first amendment to my list is this: To write about my faith more.
