Every experience God gives us, every person that He puts into our lives, is the perfect preparation for a future only He can see.

Everyone has a story, including me, but that's not what I want to talk about tonight. No, tonight I want to talk about the story I am writing. I've been working on it for a long time, long enough for it to have made it through a couple of moves, a pregnancy and the birth of my son. It's still not ready yet, but it really is something that I want to finish, feel like I need to finish. It's a part of my big dream, the part that didn't include bringing my son into the world, which I accomplished May 1. But, it seems like I could use some encouragement these days and some time...some time that the baby isn't crying or needing to be fed, or changed, etc. It'll happen, I know, but in the mean time it's a little frustrating...without working, shouldn't I be able to get more done?


  1. just prayed that the Lord would help you find the time to work on that story of yours.


  2. "...shouldn't I be able to get more done?"

    The question I ask myself many times. I pray you find a minute here and an hour there to keep writing your story...and may God use this beautiful wonderful time to give whispers of wisdom into the story of this time with your new son.

    Happy Tuesday!

    1. That would be Friday! I am so tired! :)

  3. Oh, you may not be "working" but as a new mama, you're definitely working!! Praying peace for you. :)

  4. You are working, mama. That baby is your #1 job. The story will happen, but it's still the early days with a baby, and they need a lot of time! I understand your frustration, though. This is not what you expected. All in its own time.

  5. Keep is up sister! Keep moving toward your dream. Every snippet of time matters and as you do your most important work, your most amazing dream will begin to take shape. Thank you for sharing with us!
