Recently as I was adding to my list of 1000 gifts, I wrote this as one of them: "writing my way to the answer." The pen saw the answer before I did, the words coming out of it before I knew they were there. It is a miraculous thing when I sit down to journal my way to the truth, even when the truth seems far from me, and I arrive at it. Sometimes I can't name the weight sitting on my chest, but the pen can. And after it sees it for me, I sit and stare at the words on the page. "Oh," I think. "Oh yes."
If you don't journal you might want to try it. Incorporate it into your quiet time each morning, writing your way to the truth of God's love for you, His plan for you, what He's trying to say in your life. Let the pen show you what it sees. I guarantee at times it will totally surprise you.
The pen pictured is my current favorite-- a Uni Ball Vision Elite. Love the way the ink flows from this pen like water spilling over the edge of one of those infinity pools. Come to think of it, I should probably add that pen to my 1000 gifts list.
