Another day! The routine is becoming second nature. Today it was disturbed by a trip to take my father to hospital. The drive, however, gave me time to think.
I have changed the tagline on the blog to a Kierkegaard quote: “Now, with God’s help, I shall become myself”. I thought in the car that for the first time in my life I have met “me”. And, for the first time in my life, I do not completely hate that “me”. It is a “me” that belongs to Jesus and, yes, is not to everyone’s taste. It is a “me” that can talk to people without having to be right and it can be alone with itself. So the tagline is really about how the solitude, by God’s love and mercy, has given me time and space to “become myself”. A process not yet finished but something worth working on.
I am still going to write about freedom. But that might need to be tomorrow.
