My guiding word for 2017 is Vision. You can read a little about it here.
I am happy to never go to another class reunion. I accomplished what I needed to at the last one. That was in 1993, my ten-year high school reunion. It was shortly after our daughter was stillborn. After all the years of tormenting those people put me through, I made sure that they would notice me every time they took out their reunion picture. Rather than hiding in the shadows like I tried to do throughout high school, I made sure that I was front and center of that photo.
I don’t know that I am particularly superstitious about anything. When I was a kid, we did the whole “step on a crack, break your mama’s back” thing, so I avoided stepping on cracks in the sidewalk. That wasn’t so much out of superstition as just playing along with the game. I do believe in ghosts, but that doesn’t have anything to do with superstition so much as believing what the Bible says. The Bible says not to be calling up spirits. If there were no such things as ghosts, the Bible wouldn’t be telling us to leave them alone, now would it?
Lately, I have been driven to get some things done before I can no longer do them. You can read more about that at Vision Post #1.
