Sunday Scribblings: The books I would write…

Sunday scribblings

I would write books that inspire and uplift. Ones that educate about things of an eternal nature. I would mix history, scripture, modern science, philosophy and modern revelation. (That sounds very boring, but trust me, it would be anything but boring!)I would write books that help people understand better who they are, and why they are, and what is possible for them, and how to reach these possibilities. I would write a book that would help people want nothing less for themselves than a person who knows that they have divinity within them would want. Then I would know myself better, and mankind better and God better. I would feel like I had accomplished something worth while and become a better person in the process, and perhaps have helped others to do the same thing.

If I wrote the story about the first time I fell in love and what a crazy mess it was like my friend Carrie (whose posts I miss dearly) told me I should, I would probably feel guilty with every word. See? Even the mere mention of this brings guilt up through my core and out through my fingers. So, maybe if I did something really worth while, THEN I could be so frivolous as to write about a silly girl who couldn’t get things straight between two best friends and has felt guilty about it ever since. Once I wrote about that, then maybe I’d understand it, though, and that would be a lot nicer than this insatiable guilt!

Your ENTIRE life is "something really worth while." I have no doubt in my mind that you could write an amazing book. Some sort of spirital guide for the mortal traveler.

Like me, with little ones running amuk and a husband and house to tend to, it's just a daydream for now. But it's fun to dream about...

I love the idea of new revelation and history.. What about Atlantis and the Flood and recent discoveries of pyramids in Bosnia? These impractical theories- tied to sciptural truth make for stories and amazement in the creator!

Thanks

Maybe if you wrote the love story that's powering your imagination now, it would lead to writing other things that really interest you. Sometimes reasons that things happen unfold over a period of time; too often mysteries are never explained. Nice post!

This was a great post, and filled with emotion that was not expressed. Makes me want to know more.
