Illusions of Innovative ideas

 I begin each day with illusions of innovative ideas of being industries. My imagination runs wild as I imagine each room packed and ready for the movers. The energetic initiative to invent illusive plans soon fails when unexpected issues arise.

Interruptions like phone calls, emails; even needing to give my diabetic cat her insulin stops my incentive to complete the tasks.

Incidentals like sorting through my kids’ school papers, vacation pictures, random notes…make my mind drift of course.

Idleness like Facebook, television, playing solitaire on this laptop, breaks my steps toward reaching my goals.

Nevertheless, I’m a can-doer. I’m a positive thinker. I’m obviously a planner. I’m competitive, even with myself. Failure is not an option. So, I press on toward the goal. I push hard to remove those things that get in my way. However…

I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No...I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. Philippians 3:12-14 (nlt)

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m so tired that my inability to write is showing. I don’t mean to be a grumbler…but I’m dog-tired from the unintentional isometrics I’ve been doing. My muscles have been pushed in ways they rarely get pushed. And, boy, do I feel it. My mind is foggy, so I hope this piece makes a little sense.

God bless you for reading it. God bless you for your prayers, encouragement, and support. God bless you with his everything.


  1. Doing an incredible job on the A to Z! I admire your ingenuity in overcoming the mountain of moving. You are an intrepid writer to in-scribe your insightful words in the midst of such impertinent craziness.

    Couldn't help myself- you got me going :)
    You will be missed Merrie. Quite irreplaceable.

    1. Thanks, Angela!! My life has become incomprehensible for sure.

  2. Merilee,

    You're doing just fine here...I'm a bit behind on my readings, but will catch up! I started a new job and it's been more difficult than expected to get into a routine. Keep pressing on!


    1. New routines are always a difficult adjustment, so I appreciate you taking the time to stop in here..and bring me delightful encouragement.


Thank you for your thoughts and comments...God bless you
