Six-Word Saturday #58

Posted on: January 31, 2015


Small prayers answered; big ones remain

Whenever I feel torn about a decision, I try to remember to pray about it. This past month, I had answers to a few of them.

1. My motivation for my novel has been waning again. This led me to again for the third time for a writing partner. As part of my efforts, I participated in an online forum where ones could post a description of their novel and their writing style. Then interested parties could respond. I received an email!

2. At the end of the previous year, a publishing company contacted me about joining their book reviewer ranks. After I said yes and submitted my list of book choices, I heard back once and then silence. Then finally last week, the company wrote me. True, the email just said, I hadn’t been picked. At least though, I’m still on their waiting list.

3. The past several months, I have been trying to get more involved in animal rescue. Some efforts haven’t worked out. Over December, I had begun to think that volunteering just wasn’t going to work out. Then I got an email asking me to take a regular shift.

As for those big prayers, my husband and I are saving for a house. We also hope to have a child. One day!

Sometimes it is the small things. Otherwise, you have to P.U.S.H. (Pray Until Something Happens).

The little miracles, I think, help us hold on for the big ones.
