Lesson 365 – A fitting end

This holy instant would I give to you.
Be You in charge. For I would follow You.
Certain that Your direction gives me peace.

Raw - PredenciaAnd if I need a word to help me, He will give it to me. If I need a thought, that He will also give. And if I need but stillness and a tranquil, open mind, these are the gifts I will receive of Him. He is in charge by my request. And He will hear and answer me, because He speaks for God my Father and His holy Son.

How amazing that on this last day I watched the movie Julia and Julia about a blogger who blogged every day for the same reason. Her food blog got made into a movie.

Betrayed by Penny DixonToday WordPress send me the stats for the blog. Nearly 4000 people read it over the year, the greatest readership was in Austria (about 1,900) and the UK (about 1,700) The rest was split between 42 other countries from Austraila, Canada and the US to The Caribbean, Iceland, Finland, Brazil and Pakistan. I am amazed as I didn’t ever use tags. Although not many people commented quite a number contacted me by email to let me know how helpful they found some of the lessons. Some people read them during low moments and found solace. Some people used it as a way of tracking what I was doing and were inspired to keep going with their own projects.

Dare to LoveSo, something that was meant to bring discipline to my life has helped other to do the same. It’s given me a desire to continue but I’m not sure what I’ll be blogging about next year. One thing I know is that it won’t be every day, as I have a heavy writing schedule ahead this year. I intend to finish the parenting book and to write the accompanying course. I have at least seven other books in my head, all with voices impatient to be heard.

Today I had the loveliest compliment – one of my readers said the last story in my last book made him cry. He said I was a real story teller, at which point I nearly cried, because that’s what I’ve always wanted to be. I feel I’ve grown in confidence as a writer and I’m feeling very excited about next year. I’m being offered a few collaborative projects but need to stay focused on my primary goals of writing books.

Black History Month listingI may blog about sexuality, spirituality and parenting next year as they will be the things I’ll be writing about. I hope you will still find me.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR.
