I heard a sermon over the summer about getting out of the boat.

It was then some funny things began to happen in my life….

This chicken of a woman began doing a few things I never dreamed I would do…..

  • I submitted a story and it was included in Couch Rebels.
  • I am participating in a project to raise money for a home in Kenya that is currently housing 12 teen moms and their babies. It is now in Phase 2 of the project.
  • I joined an online Bible Study group that has been a blessing beyond words – Hello Mornings.

But God is keeping me out of the boat. Still.

Enter 31 Days.

I had been seeing a few blog posts about it. I wondered what it was as I had never heard of it before. Then the hashtags began. And my curiosity was peaked. A little investigating and I learned that it was a challenge of sorts. I had pretty much decided it was not going to be for me. I would be out of my league. But during my car ride to church alone, God began His nudging and how does one resist His nudging?

Yesterday we spent some time trying to figure out a blog button. Heck, it took three adults and I won’t admit to how much time. But it was figured out. Now I am ready.

Starting October 1st, I will be joining many others who blog in The Nester’s 31 Days of Writing. You can join too if you’d like. For 31 days, I will be writing on 31 Days of Holding. I have no idea whatsoever what I am doing. Seriously. There are so many wonderful bloggers that are participating. All I know is this – in my heart I feel compelled to join in.  I am hoping that someone will read  and enjoy my thoughts on holding – what our God holds, what we hold, why we hold and other thoughts that come on holding. I am excited to see what the next 31 days will teach me, teach us. You can follow the full 31 days by using the category 31 Days of Holding in my sidebar which will always land you here.

Since I am out of my boat, which means I am also out on the waters and I truly do not know how to swim, I hope you will pray for me. Pray that I will be able to complete this challenge of sorts. So here I go….
