I come up with all sorts of ideas, and things about which I want to post. Invariably, when I think about it later, I've forgotten what it was I wanted to say. Then I end up saying nothing; and so it goes on, until, before I know it, it's days since I last posted. There … Continue reading Ideas. Thankful.
Kind of like ringing a bell in the street and shouting, "UNCLEAN, UNCLEAN!!" Except I would shout, "UNWORTHY, UNWORTHY!!" I have a very low personal opinion of myself.

I am fed-up tying myself in knots trying to be all things to all men/people. I become so wound up I can hardly walk straight, or think straight.
