I did what I told myself I would not do. I can make excuses until sundown, but I won’t carry on any more. I neglected this blog. Although I continue to write, I stopped writing here.
I have been focusing my creativity in Faithwriters.com Writing Challenges this year. The editors share a topic with a deadline and I spend the week toiling over my entry to meet the word count between 150 – 750 words. I push myself to write dialog and I try to be poetic, all with a Christian theme. Since the first of the year, I have had two submissions take Second Place, one Third Place, and three Highly Commended. I am very proud of my accomplishments and enjoy my growth as a writer. Yet, the competitive side of me will not quit the fight to be in First Place. I am so close!
I apologize for neglecting this blog. Now that I am here, it feels like hanging out with an old friend. I have stories to share – especially many “God moments” as He is doing a mighty work in me. I feel led to share to give you encouragement in your faith journey.
I will be back soon to share my heart in my writing soon. Until then, meditate on this verse,
James 1:19 NIV
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.
