The Lord's Ways Are Mysterious

January has been a long month, full of surprises. And full of irony. About 3 weeks ago, in pursuit of my blossoming career-interest (life as a full-time writer) I submitted an application to Examiner.com. Last week they let me know that I'd been accepted as a contributing writer. Glory! The irony? In between my application and their acceptance I found myself in charge of my company. For more on that, go here. You'll notice I've also kicked off a new blog.

My New Year's "Resolutions" this year included "write every day". And "read every day". The list did not include "take over my company". And yet, here I am. I am now the "acting Director" ("local site manager"..."woman without a title"?) for my small company.

And, I'm on board with the Examiner team, committed to publish regularly. And to read. My assignment is "Austin Christian Books Examiner." I will be challenged to manage my time effectively, but what's life without a good challenge? Godless.

With God, all things are possible. I'm praying for God to guide me to the Office Manager that will be my partner in successfully leading my company. That step is key.

If you've stopped by and wondered where I've been, I hope I haven't worried you by my silence. I've been working or working out. My faith is as strong as ever. I trust balance will soon return.

But...your prayers are appreciated.
