Many years ago I took a writing class when I was in college. My instructor, who was a magazine editor, encouraged me to write for publication. Astounded, I tucked those words away. Over the years I occasionally pulled them out for consideration, but the thought was always put back on the shelf. Life was busy. Marriage, nursing school, four children, homeschooling, a church plant, two church building projects, and a life devoted to ministry filled my days. Writing consisted of ‘To Do’ lists.
But life is always changing. The homeschooling years are over; my nest is almost empty. The church building project is complete. I am delighted to have arrived at this point in life when I find myself with some free time.
I plan to devote a bit of that free time to writing down some of my thoughts. I am pleased to see that all these years later I am able to act on the encouragement I was given to share my writing. I’m jumping into the world of blogging!
