Tuesday: Choices. As with Cara we are all given choices, even if God has called us to do something. Even then He gives us the choice to accept or refuse that calling. Once you accept this truth there is no easy road set before you. All roads are dfficult and to refuse your calling is hazardous. Cara finds this to be true. Her journey is marked by many tears, tears that she sheds because of choices she makes. Then tears because of those she has come to love coming to harm. Tears well up within her over the enormity of the task set before her, but a sweet whisper deep within her tells her, "Lisen and watch". For God does not call us to do something that He is unable to accomplish through us. The problem is that we have such a difficult time in giving the situation over to Him. I was once told that God cannot make a person willing, but He can make them willing to be willing. You find that in SEABIRD. If you are in a cabin that is on fire and refuse to get out to safety, God can and will throw a hornet's nest in that cabin (because of His great love for you) so that you will flee the burning flames of the cabins in your life. So choosing to follow Him earlier on is much more preferable, although not always easy. Still, you will find that some tears you shed will be tears of joy, and these are the kind of tears His children should shed.
We're at it again. That's right, "Tag, you're it". Those posting reviews are listed below, although in no special order. Plus, there are other team members who will be posting just the basics, which I'm sure you'll find intriguing as well. So hunt around and enjoy the journey. Like Cara you may not think you are special or anything, but you really are. You may find yourself on one of these sites.
Now a little about Sherry Thompson:
I was born in Baltimore MD in 1946. Between then and my fifth year, my family moved to New-Port-News VA, Homeville PA and finally to Marshallton, Wilmington DE. I've lived somewhere in New Castle County DE ever since.
I attended the University of Delaware and received a BAAS cum laude from their School of Education in 1969. My major was Interdepartmental History but I earned sufficient credits to secure unofficial minors in both English and Educational Psychology.
During the last three years of my time as an undergraduate, I also worked about 20 hours a week at the University of Delaware Library. I was accepted into the university's psychology graduate program, but chose to accept a fulltime position at the UD library instead.
I worked at the library from the spring of 1965 to the spring of 2000, when I retired from my position as Supervisor of the Interlibrary Loan unit within Access Services. Now, I write. And, revise, and volunteer, and … oh, yes, I write.
