Write31Days Challenge 2018

Reality TV, writing challenge, write31days, write 31 days


Hey, everybody. It’s almost October and time for the Write31Days Challenge. I thought it might be fun to have a theme this year. So, I’m going to share with you, “31 Things from Reality TV.”
I’ve pulled my observations from many shows,  such as,  Master Chef, The Next Food Network Star, Project Runway,  Survivor,  The Bachelor,  Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders – Making the Team,  American Idol,  So You Think You Can Dance, and more.
While my theme is planned,  my writings will be fresh every day, thus the challenging part for me. I want to thank everyone who shared their ideas for this series. It was fun to hear your thoughts.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey.

Pause, rest, slow down

*Pause* – oh, what a great word – pause. For days, I’ve heard its whispers calling me – enticing me come closer. Yet, it seemed out of reach. Each time I reached towards its embrace, my fingers fell short of the button as my circumstances won the battle for my attention. Oh, that I could resist the pull of the urgent and push that button. Continue reading “Pause”

loyal, God is loyal, worship God aloneThis morning, I was meditating on how all creation worships God. The song, “So Will I” by Hillsong was playing in my mind. So, I asked my dog, Willie G, who was sitting next to me, “What do you do to worship God?” Continue reading “Loyalty”
