She wrote.

Today I wrote. Finally.

For the past two years, I've been sloooowly working on a writing project with a friend. Who knows if it will ever get finished or looked at by anyone who wants to publish it, but it doesn't matter.
I like writing, it is a great outlet for me.  

With all of the flurry of activity in our days, time to write just isn't fitting in. I know now, that I need to make time. I'm working at making a weekly writing time a part of my week. But today it came as a surprise. The three little ones were napping, while the four big ones were helping my Dad pick crab apples for a couple hours this afternoon.

 I didn't know what to do with myself.   Do I sit on the couch and snoop around the internet? Nah. Been there, done that.

Do I watch a movie? Nap? Read?  Hmmm... Then the word, "write" popped into my head, and I was remembering that I had a writing project that had been put on the back burner for far too long. This friend and I feel that God has given us a message to share with other women. Would you pray that this message would continue to come to us, and we would faithfully write it down?  Thank you so much. 

2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

  1. I found your blog while on pinterest. I too am a homeschooling mom. Your blog is so uplifting! How refreshing to read.Thanks! I am trying to be brave and start a blog..when I do I will definitely let you know :)Heather

  2. It is hard to find time to write, and I can't imagine as a mom of seven! The writer Anne Lamott says all we need is 300 words a day (about one page). For me, that means going to bed a little earlier and getting up a little earlier--I treat it like my devotional reading and prayer time, it is a gift from God that I believe God desires me to use. Keep writing! :) Blessings, Mindi
