Today's my day at Spec Faith ... I'm not sure I said everything I wanted to, or said what I did very well ... but with the overdose of Real Life this week has provided, it's gonna have to do ...
Two days ago I was doing some cleaning and putting away in my closet, and one of my 10-lb. weights fell on my foot. Ouch. I'm pretty sure the next-to-smallest toe is broken, and the bruising has progressively crept upward to cover the whole top of my foot. Interesting colors. I've spent what time I could get sitting with my feet up catching up on getting my checkbook transactions into Quicken and reconciling the statements. Between computer trouble (our main desktop) and not taking the time to work on it (I much prefer my laptop and finally switched everything over), I was ... *gulp* ... a year behind.
But ... I'm all caught up now.
Two nights ago, I met with a group of writers, and we've formed a new fiction-only group--eventually to become an ACFW chapter--but for now we're calling ourselves Lowcountry Christian Fiction Writers and going ahead even without being a full chapter yet. We'll be studying the writing craft in more depth than some other groups I've belonged to, and trading critiques. We're open to all believers who want to seriously pursue the craft of writing fiction and will commit to supporting their fellow group members by prayer, encouragement, etc. (Oooh, I think I'll write that up and run it past everyone for use as a possible vision statement ...) We meet next time on Friday, November 17, at the North Charleston Atlanta Bread Company.
While there, we were discussing coffee drinking and the subject came up of the caffeinated squirrel in Hoodwinked ... which led to someone sharing the saying which I use as the title of today's blog. I thought it particularly appropriate for my life these last two weeks.
There hasn't been a lot to write about ... it's hard to share when God is just humbling you, through one thing and another. But I know He has a plan, and it's for my good ... "if I had not believed that I would see His good in the land of the living, then I would have lost all heart." Spoken by another manic type, David, king of Israel. :-)
I could not live if I didn't know that all things work together for our good.
