I’m expecting 2007 to be a big year for the Beall family. There are so many amazing things that I believe are going to happen. I believe my book will be published this year. I believe that we’ll pay off huge amounts of debt this year. I believe we might begin to home school the boys. I know that other things will occur, too. I might lose someone I love. Someone I know might get real sick. A couple I know might divorce. A child I know might die. But, as soon as I realize that those things are part of life, the more I can go on living.Here’s how that turned out: •Didn’t publish a book. •Did pay off major debt 🙂 •Didn’t decide to home school. (Although we have laid that at the feet of the Father from year to year should He lead our family otherwise.) •Did lose someone I loved…two in fact. •Someone I knew got real sick. •More than one couple I know called it quits on their marriage. •Started publishing my own stuff on my blog. Can I just say that I have had so much fun with this blog? So what that three publishers told me in indirect ways that I would not make enough money for their company. I’m literally publishing my writings EVERY SINGLE DAY. I’m also getting to live out my passion by helping women. And, and, and, I got to “meet” new people who are full of awesomeness like Theresa, Sarah, Mandy, Tam, Alece, Mindy, Hope, Rachel, Jimmy, Ryan, Michael, Erica, Scott, Boomama, Crystal, Lisa, Casey, Joe, Mary, Tamera, Andrea, Jenn, Vickie, and Lisa and plenty of others that I just can’t get down in time to post this! I hope my writing is a blessing to you. I hope some days I make you think so hard that your head hurts. I hope that at times you’ve laughed so hard that you had to hold your legs together. I don’t really want to make you cry but I think I might have a couple of times and that’s good. Because tears, they cleanse the windows of the soul. Thank you for reading. Please keep coming back. It means the world to me.
God happened, that’s what. Here’s an excerpt from my journal from January 4, 2007:
