I was so hyped for this new year.  I was ready for new thoughts, new ideas, new inspirations to write about.  Nada.  I don't know if I'm thinking too much about it, or maybe I haven't been "present" enough in the moment to capture anything.  I haven't given up hope. I know the magic will come.


I see this photo and I feel like I could write a novel based on how this piece of art inspires me...but my words come up blank on a page.  I don't know what to say.  I don't even know where to begin.

Why am I inspired?  Is it because of the magic wand?  Is it because it looks as though it's the hand of Mickey?  Is it because of the legends that burst from the castle?  My imagination is unlimited yet I can pick nothing to get the juices flowing.

Well maybe I need time to soak it in some more.  I feel this way with God's message sometimes.  It's so much, so overwhelming, so inspiring...but when I reflect on it, I can't pinpoint exactly what it's saying TO ME.  There's always a lot of wisdom in the Word of God, but the nugget I'm looking for is what will help me in my journey of faith.  It's the piece of advice that is the catalyst for growth.  I always need some time to break down what God is trying to say to me.  I need to sit still and listen.  Oftentimes, I read passages in the bible and forget to ask myself what I've learned.  I am trying to get into the habit of opening my heart a little more each day as to learn the message He has prepared for me.

Maybe in this case, I need to sit still and just stare and this statue.  I'll let the magic from the wand speak to me...slowly but surely.

Or maybe it has already been used as a tool of inspiration!  I'm starting to think that right about now ;)
