"Lesson Learned" by Cat Kerr

I started something new....for the wrong reasons....but I didn't care....and what happened was...the powers that Be...wouldn't hear of it...and so as time went on...and after receiving warning sign after warning sign.....my heart became heavy.. my mind stale with inactivity....when by Grace...I understood at last.

We cannot fool the heart into doing something the heart does not love,we cannot let the spirit lie dormant.We cannot let imagination and creativity linger low below the knees weeping for a chance to climb.

This I tell you,is my disclosure.My lesson learned...for when my spirit soars,I will offer up the wind,...and when my imagination is uncontainable, I will set it free,....and if my heart is heavy,I will find the courage to lighten the load.When all there is to do,is change the course.

Lesson Learned.

Cat - this is so true! If our heart is not in line with our work, then it just becomes homework we have no desire to finish (exactly how I felt about math in high school - haha!). I love your new box. Thank you for the reminder! xox Pam
