Potholes

"Go now, write it on a tablet for them, inscribe it on a scroll, that for the days to come it may be an everlasting witness." Isaiah 30:8

A Portrait in Progress by Portia


(An autobiography in 5 short chapters)

Chapter I
I walk down the street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I fall in.

I am lost...I am helpless.

It isnít my fault.

It takes forever to find a way out.

Chapter II
I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I pretend I donít see it.

I fall in again.

I canít believe I am in the same place, but, it isnít my fault.

It still takes a long time to get out.

Chapter III
I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I see it is there.

I still fall in ... itís a habit.

My eyes are open.

I know where I am.

It is my fault.

I get out immediately.

Chapter IV
I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I walk around it.

Chapter V
I walk down another street.

In 1990 the Lord commissioned me to write down my traditions, morals, values and spiritual beliefs for my family. I donít mean this in any frivolous wayÖHe truly laid it on my heart to do this. He gave me the talent and the desireÖall I had to do was remain focused and be obedient.

Tidbits Of Time is a map book to show the way around the potholes of life.

Read it in such way that you see the personality patterns from generation to generation.

The sole purpose of Life Story Writing, for me, is to leave this guidebook so that hopefully, you will learn from it and not fall in the potholes that I did, but that youwalk down another street! Donít just be a follower, but lead the way! 

"You must love God with all your heart, soul, and might. And you must think constantly about these commandments I am giving you today. You must teach them to your children and talk about them when you are at home or out for a walk; at bedtime and the first thing in the morning. Tie them on your finger, wear them on your forehead, and write them on the doorposts of your house!" Deuteronomy 6:9
