“The need to write comes from the need to make sense of one’s life and discover one’s usefulness.” John Cheever, the late American author
I find that particularly true in retirement. First, thank God I have been able to retire.
Looking back, it becomes easier to make sense of my own life. I find as I write, I can be useful by eliciting smiles, understanding, laughs and insight for my readers. I hope and pray I can do that for many of you. I certainly feel more useful in my slow, so far, thank God, deterioration. I believe I can grow in God’s hands and accomplish those ends.
Others don’t really know me. I really don’t know me. But, He does. May I be blessed by Him through Scriptures, circumstances and the people through which He guides me. Lord knows I need that.
