Past and Present

I've been doing a lot of reminiscing today - which comes right on the heels of some praying I have been doing lately. Well, actually some quick one liners: "Can you free me from THAT?"

The response always comes quickly, gently: "I already have. It is you who hold on to it". *sigh*

Being at camp has reminded me of my days at camp - and of that era of my life in general. Honestly, it's not one I would want to relive, for many reasons. But today, I recalled the time I was given on this rock. Hours and hours and hours of sitting and writing, of listening and crying out to God (though I would never have described it that way, then!) I grew a lot on that rock. More than I knew at the time.

There are things from that season of life that I miss - things that I could have again, if I put forth the effort.

Important things. Things that would help me grow.

But in order to do that, I must make room.

I must let go of other things.
