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.

Summer Reviews

Books can take connect us with strangers, take us to unique places, and introduce us to new ideas. They can also offer hope in a chaotic world. And so I must share what I read!

Each week, I’ll introduce you to religious books, Advanced Reader Copies, animal books, or diversity books. Some I’ll review as singles and others as part of round-ups. Just ahead, there will be reviews of:
