Following a Winding Path, Finding a Treasure

This morning I was awakened by my husband bringing me a cup of coffee. Umm! Very sweet, I say.

We are the only ones up, since this is a day off from school in our district, and the young folk are sleeping in a bit. So . . . I’m allowing myself the leisure to read some new blogs. I’m a regular reader of by Tim Challies. Today he recommended a post in Radical Womanhood, a blog authored by Carolyn McCulley, which I read and appreciated so much that I added the blog to my Google Reader feed.

I was still feeling relaxed, timewise, in our quiet, warm, sleepy home, so I decided to scroll down and read some of Carolyn McCulley’s earlier posts. I came across her book recommendation for A.W. Tozer’s The Pursuit of God, The Pursuit of Man. She posted an excerpt entitled “The Rules for Self-Discovery”. Take a look at this list:

Rules for Self-Discovery

1. What we want most

2. What we think about most

3. How we use our money

4. What we do with our leisure time

5. The company we enjoy

6. Who and what we admire

7. What we laugh at

I’m reminded of Matthew 6:21, “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” There’s A LOT to think about here; I like it. I really like it. I want to live life thoughtfully and wisely, not bump around ignorantly and lazily in the dark. It is so easy to SAY something complimentary about oneself (I am speaking for myself, here, not criticizing anyone.), but the things we ENJOY speak more accurately about us.

I’ll just let this simmer on the back burners of my heart and mind now, and hopefully something beneficial will percolate for later postings.

    This is a lovely bit of wisdom. To live thoughtfully and wisely is a lifestyle we should all try to attain — it’s a shame that sometimes this wisdom comes later in life, but it’s never too late to become what you might have been. 😉

    Thank you for your visit and your kind words about my blog…I’m so glad you enjoy it.
