EXCERPT FROM POTENTIAL PROJECT
Knee Deep: Handwritten Letters to my Creator (KNEE DEEP: A 9-Month Whirlpool of Handwritten Letters to the Creator by Christina M. Eder, Paperback | Barnes & Noble® (barnesandnoble.com) was released in 2020. Knee Deep has been my least marketed, most sold book of the six I’ve had published. I believe there is a Knee Deep sequel brewing. Perhaps, “Hip Waders: Stepping Deeper into Unknown Lands of Learning.”
The following piece, from a recent journal entry, is written in the style I used for Knee Deep. I ask for your input. Your thoughts add value to me as a writer and fellow voyager on our mission trip called life!
From the FROG Blog, I anticipate your response,
Thank you for the strength of silence. I feel a tense chaos in my spirit this morning and need to slow down. Instead of a rush hour, a hush hour can bring clarity and pressure release.
In my seasonal retail job, I feel overwhelmed. The customers and aisles seem to close around me. Overloaded shelves threaten to consume my peace. Remind me to keep a Thanksgiving and Christmas spirit. Help me retain a Valentine season where love buys out materialism.
Our world is well stocked with distractions. Guard me from feeling like the entire store relies on my attention. I’m one person. I have a sole responsibility…to remain in You. It’s crucial to regularly inventory my soul health.
Protect me when I get trapped in the shopping flurries. Help me remain grateful for my job, health, smile and sharp mind. Light my path so I can uplift others. Lead me to seek calmness.
With love and gratitude for (inner) silent nights,
