I bet you thought I forgot about you today? Not at all, I just had an announcement I wanted to make and reflect upon, but had to wait until today to write about it.
I was nominated and elected to my church's Board of Elders this morning at church. I am honored and humbled to have been nominated in the first place, let alone elected to serve a term of three years on the church's governing board.
Earlier this week, I saw a slide show on Oprah's website that was a list of opportunities you should never turn down. The list includes things such as a godchild's plea, garlic, an invitation to Sunday dinner. When I was notified that my name was nominated by the committee at church, I had an overwhelming feeling that I needed to accept this nomination.
This feeling is very much like my journey as a writer. I feel very much that same: that is a calling which I must answer. Your dream journey should call to you just the same. I believe Oprah calls it a whisper.
What whisper have you heard in your life lately?
