31 days of victory big

Friday mornings are one of my favorite times of the week because I get to spend 2 1/2 hours hanging out with several incredible women as we dig deeper into life and try to listen well and love each other where we are. It’s good stuff, I tell ya.

After “group” as we call it (which makes it sound like therapy, which it kind of is except free and more fun) I often have an hour and a half to kill before getting my son and his friend from school. Today, I determined that I would spend that time writing.

Apart from my blog, I have been starting to work on writing a book. I’ve had this idea in the back of my mind for a long time, but it’s amazing how I can find ways to not work on it. I try to schedule times to write it, and suddenly I am incredibly motivated to clean my house to within an inch of its life, or I find many things on the internet which I must read, or I have to organize my closets or run errands. Yesterday, I had planned to write all day but God decided to send me to the emergency room instead. I’m calling that not my fault.

So my victory today is that I said I would write, and I did. It’s that simple. I ignored the voices that called me to do something else, and I just wrote. It wasn’t hours, and maybe I’ll erase everything I wrote the next time I look at it, but I wrote. Victory!

What are you calling victory today?

  1. I love that you didn’t own what you couldn’t control–the emergency room. But I love even more that you followed through and did write–which I think you should do so much more of! You’ve got a gift, GB, and I see you as a source of encouragement for many. I’m at the top of that list, my friend!

  2. And now I know the I importance of reading your posts in order! I’m happily reading along and then EMERGENCY ROOM?!?!!! I just saw you Tuesday! So glad it was nothing serious. Love your perspective and quick response to give God the glory. Keep up the writing!
