The Intention of My Blog

Welcome, my beloved readers!

In case you're wondering, it's not a typo up there for you see the definition of goodly is:

used as an adjective to describe something
1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I am a mother who home educates her children; I would be pleased if you'd look around. You never know if I might have something to your liking. I've blogged about different topics. I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Please remember to subscribe to my blog, using any variety of methods, which are below to the right, including Facebook.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

Crossing the T's and Dotting the I's

I participated in a month long challenge to write a 50,000 word novel.

Today, I learned a valuable lesson, and the jury is out on whether my situation will be resolved.  You see, I never figured out how to validate my novel at  I could have looked at the forums early on.  I didn't.  

I kicked myself figuratively.  Then, I cried and cried last night.  I worked so hard on my novel, and I might not get the recognition.  I have coveted the reward--a badge--saying that I had accomplished my goal of writing a 50,000 word novel.

As I tried to gather my tears, I tried to make sense of my little madness.  The question became: Do I need external motivation and rewards to accomplish a goal?  Isn't it enough that I finished a novel within one month?

The reality is that I submitted my novel to be validated via email.  It's out of my hands.  I pray that everything works out.  I can't change the past.  I pray that God handles the rest.

I'll be patient about the process.  That's all I can do.  Thanks for any prayers that you, my readers, care to send up to God about this situation.  I greatly appreciate them.

To recap: It's important to read the fine print about anything, especially when dealing with a project.  You might regret it if you don't.  

This entry is for Thorough Thursdays.  I pray you all take it to heart. ;)
