I like to think that I have an open mind. I try not to have preconceived notions about things before I experience them for myself.
I don’t know about you but I have found that there seems to be a certain time of the day that God works on me. For me, this is generally about three in the morning.
As grateful as I am that God spends time with me or working on me, I find that His intervention at three in the morning leads to some very bleary-eyed days.
As I write this I am on a plane flying home from being out of town.
While sitting here looking out the window, I started to remember how I used to be such a white-knuckled flier. Any change in a noise, little bump, turn, or anything else unexpected used to make my heart jump into my throat. My heart would start to pound, I would start to sweat, and I would hold onto the arm rests so tightly you would have thought that I would have broken them off.
I hope that you will allow me to take some of your time to say a special thank you to you – my readers. And to tell you a little story about how almost anything that we want to accomplish in our lives is possible. All we need to do is have a dream, put in a little hard work, and have faith that God will help us along the way to realizing our dreams.
For as long as I can remember I have had the desire to write. I was a good writer but I just didn’t know what to write about. I studied other authors. I tried to figure out how they write and what they wrote about. Do I write fiction? Do I try to write a novel? Suspense? I had great ideas but I just didn’t know how to put them all together to make them interesting. I kept feeling like I was at a roadblock – like my car was all gassed up but I had no where to go.
Sometimes, as a writer, I get stuck. And right now I think I’m stuck…
I get ideas, I work on them, come up with a story, and then I read it and don’t feel like it’s ready to let go. So I put the story on a shelf hoping that some day I will come back to it, get inspired, fix it, finish it, and release it – once I get the words right.
