This year, I don’t have the luxury of being in Houston attending my wonderful church home or interacting with a hodgepodge of people I’ve come to love over the last four years. I don’t even have the opportunity to be home in Oklahoma playing with my babies, singing and cooning with my beautiful sisters or dining with my awesome friends. But that’s not what stands out to me. What stands out to me is that I have a peace I didn’t have last year. Last year I was high-strung about how to sell books and how to make money. My faith wasn’t nearly as strong as it is now. 2011 has been one hell of a year for me, but oh what a difference a year makes!
I’ve grown in ways I never knew possible. I’ve learned to control myself and my interaction with people who can potentially set me off; I’ve learned to adapt to any situation; I’ve learned to let go of the past—to take each day and live in it—and most importantly, I’ve learned to “Be still and KNOW” (Psalms 46:10).
I like a good party—especially one in my honor lol—just like the next man. I love being around my family and friends and I want to be successful as an author, editor and whatever else God has in store for me. However, there is no price tag for increased faith in God or His peace. So, what will I do in The-Middle-of-Nowhere, GA? I don’t know. But I do know, it’s my day, one the Lord has made, and I will rejoice and be glad in it. Let the church say...
Oh what a difference a year makes!
