Such a simple title. Don't ya think? Thinking. The very word puts a smile on my face. I am a thinker. Or more better known as a day dreamer. I think, day dream about everything. Have since I was a wee little child.
I would sit at my desk in my fifth grade class room doing my seat work but pretending in mind I was tutoring a "student" It kept me going it kept me motivated to finish my work by day dreaming.
Of course I don't have to day dream about teaching anymore since ::Ahem:: it's what I do for a living. But I tend to think, day dream about other things so many other things. I was thinking about that this afternoon and I thought it would make a good post.
Stay with me people! I am not just rambling tonight I have a point! Are you a thinker? Do you think about tomorrow, think about year from now, two years, maybe even six years from now? I do I wonder where I will be, what I will be doing, I think it's normal to wonder, to ponder, to think. I am so glad God gave me an imagination.
My mom has told me a story about when I was only four or five years old and I wanted to bring my doll into the grocery store. My mom told me I needed to leave my doll in the car and I wasn't overly thrilled about the idea but after I stopped my two second pouting. I looked up at mom as she shut the car door and I said "That's, otay mama. I have my maginary doll!" (Yes, I had a speech problem as a child. :) ) While I said that I motioned with my arms pretending I was carrying a doll.
I love to write I love to create imaginary characters in my stories and make them real. I love being able to sit down in my chair and just think!
Of course like everything else we need to be careful what we think about what we watch,read, talk to because sure enough that negative stuff will come into our thinking. Like the old children's song...
"Oh, be careful little eyes what you see."
"Oh, be careful little ears what you hear."
"Oh,Be careful little mouth what you say."
We need to be careful what we say and what we think and what we do.
But when we use our minds to honor and glorify God our thinking can be a beautiful thing. I am so glad I can ponder not worry but just ponder and think! Aren't you?
