Today, is a special day. It's going to better than, greater than, or otherwise different from all the others. That's what special means: better, greater, or otherwise different.
When life catches up to me in a collision of stress, uncertainty, or exhaustion, I truly need a special day to recharge. Do you?
Otherwise different for me means one thing: solitude.
I'm an off-the-charts extrovert. I've never played solitaire. I write novels to invent more people to spend time with. Even when I'm blogging, children run circles about me while I'm texting friends.
So I arrange six hours of solitude in a little prayer cabin in the woods today.
I really did. Me! Alone for six hours in a tiny cabin by a stream.
I have a journal, a pen, a Bible, snacks, coffee, more coffee, and of course, leftover Chinese food. I might lose my mind with all this time alone. Either that, or I'll meet with God in the refreshing solitude of an otherwise different day.
I'll report back on my adventures in solitude.
What would better, greater, or otherwise different be for you?
