Monday Blueprint Madness


Yet another ill-conceived bathroom brings to mind an important principle of life: "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." (Matthew 7:13-14)

I'm not saying that life is in the toilet! Don't get me wrong - I believe that sometimes taking the narrow road is difficult but necessary.

Today I was able to participate in most of the 4 sessions for Day 1 of "A Woman Inspired." There were many interruptions on my end and occasional technical difficulties - but I am truly blessed to be able to join this forum. I'm uplifted by the message of faith shared amongst the women participants. It's a narrow road I'm walking and I'm grateful for every minute of it.

I was fabulous, Jeanette! Now have I changed my blog yet....no, we just returned from an away-weekend, but I am inspired! Thanks to the angsting mother here!

Not just narrow in terms of space, but narrow in terms of time - squeezing in prayer instead of making it a priority in full openness of the morning. Hard lesson.

Ahem. IT was fabulous - not "I". *blushing from embarrassment*
