On Purpose

2008 Men’s National Championship

Just for fun, our family does an NCAA pool every year at this time.  I went with the local underdog and had Arizona winning the whole thing.  Well, they went out in the first round.  My family has decided to let me "re-do" my picks, actually my husband has offered to let me, while the boys are yelling about how we would never let them change their picks and unanimously saying "Sorry Mom, maybe you’ll do better next year."  I just want to say that never in the history of our family has anyone made such a bad pick.  It seems to me that extra grace is in order.

Yesterday one of my requested manuscripts was rejected by a top 5 Christian magazine editorial board. They said it was good, but didn’t fit their editorial needs.  I was very disappointed.  I wanted a "do over" so badly.

I knew I had a choice to make.  There was only one thing to do.  I emailed it right off to an editor of a top 3 Christian magazine.  In their writer’s guidelines they say that articles must be about "heart issues that hold a woman back."  Guess what my article was about?  A big heart issue that holds women back. 

I would covet your prayers that my heart issues wouldn’t hold me back and that "do over" or not, I would continue to do what God is calling me to do.  I’ll be praying the same thing for you.

Blessings and love,
