I mentioned last week about some blessings I wanted to share with you. Tonight seems like a great time as my husband is catching a nap.
A few months ago, I mentioned that I had to put my writing skills to the test to set up a website for our new business. Last week, we got our first call about a job from someone who googled us. I was thrilled it worked --even if we don't get the actual work.
Then when I was feeling like I might have to give up my writing and get a job . . . (insert a pity party here) . . . I got an email from a woman asking me to come to her writer's seminar. At first, I was confused as I didn't know where she was from and all. I emailed back and she wrote that she wanted to fly me up as a speaker. I about fell off my chair.
I have never spoken before a large group. I knew I needed to tell her.
It seems she found me from an article I had written about writing fiction. At the time, I had a book under contract. I needed to tell her I no longer did and that my specialty was non-fiction. A few of my friends said don't say no, but I hated for this writers group to get an inexperienced writer.
So I emailed her back and explained how much she had blessed me by asking.
I didn't hear a whisper from God that day but a shout.
Maybe next time I'll be ready and take the plunge.
