When my husband and I were first married we got into a huge war over whether I would write or not.  He had no idea how much work  it was - and of course, the pay check doesn't come unless something sells.  So, I went to work (for a bi-weekly part time pay check) and dropped writing.  

That was seven years ago.  I've become very lazy in my sentence structure and vocabulary.

And I feel utterly empty of stories.  

But when I pray, this is where I end up.  

Please pray for me that if this is an obedience that I am obedient. . .and if this is a grace, that I receive it. . .and if it is not what He wants me to do, that I accept and leave it.  

Lord have mercy.

May your prayers be answered.  May you have the wisdom to understand the answer.
