Doors Are Opening

So tell me, is this experience simply a typical example of a bit of success with social links, commenting, page rank and cross posts? Or, is the Guy in the Sky teaching me to listen and trust?

Last week, my spiritual director causally mentioned that now my writing online would be blessed, that it would flourish.Two days later, after leaving a comment on Catholic Attachment Parenting Corner, the editor, Kim, e-mailed me .

"I’ve actually been thinking about you. I know you are busy and have other writing commitments but you’ve been on my heart for a while. I would love it if you’d join our writing staff or at least consider writing one piece or a series of articles on a particular topic. I feel you have a unique perspective as an experienced mom looking at this gentle parenting life from the other side as children begin to emerge into the world, finding their way. Let me know what you think or if you have any questions!"

The next day seemed to much of a coinicidence.


Jackie Parkes at Association Of Catholic Women Bloggers, asked me if I would consider taking over her site as the new administrator. I responded with a resounding yes and marvelled at the accuracy of my directors words. It was very comforting to realize that once again, he listens to the father and only says what the father tells him to say.I am artistic, so of course the first thing that I worked on was the template, layout and design. It took most of the day but I love it and now the site feels like home, already.

So tell me, is this experience simply a typical example of a bit of success with social links, commenting, page rank and cross posts? or is the Guy in the sky teaching me to trust His word and His timing.



About the Writer

My husband and I raised 9 children on a hobby farm and discovered fulfilment and joy.The very existence of a joyful mother of nine children seems to confound people. My writing is humourous and heart warming/ thoughtful and thought provoking with a strong current of spirituality running through it.
