On My Heart: Feeling Blank

I've been staring at the computer screen for awhile now, and its just kept looking back at me, blank as can be. It's how I've been feeling lately. I had some weird virus over the weekend where I felt knocked off my feet. I didn't feel sick in the least bit, just overcome with fatigue. I fell asleep at 4pm Friday night in my clothes. And if you no me well enough, you know that I am not a fan of dirty clothes or shoes on clean sheets. Period. I spent all of Saturday laying in my bed; thinking, and thinking, and thinking.


And then I realized that I've run out of words, which is a rarity for me. I could talk to anyone until the cows come home. I'm hoping this time without words will give me an opportunity to take a step back and find others to encourage. I'm working on cultivating an old habit of waking up every morning and doing something for someone else where I don't benefit from it. I'm hoping in the stillness and quiet of my spirit, I'll better be able to see the weary, the heartbroken, and the hurting. And when the time comes, I can only hope I find my words to bless them with!

  3. It's ok to feel blank. I think it happens to all of us. We're so used to processing so much that when a blank spell comes along it seems SO strange. I'm there with ya.

  5. I love the idea of doing service for someone each day. I often times am without words too. And it's ok to be silent every once in a while :)

  6. If you are a mom you don´t have the option of beeing without words - so be blessed! It is a lovely thing just to be quiet! Helping others without a benefit is so wonderfull that there don´t have to be words. One of my best friend said once: if you find someone who needs help or an ear, just be like a wonderful nice bathtube full of warm water - just pour warmth around them and give relaxation just because beeing there and listen!
    I love that idea and hope you will have a nice and calm bathtube time!
