Whatever your life endeavors might be — writing, acting, parenting, marriage, teaching, ministry— take to heart the words of those who have been successful before us. And enjoy!
My hope is to make Wednesday’s Words an every now and again event. These posts will feature the words of others in writing or other art forms.
Today’s words are words fitting for the times we are living in and should all be putting into action.

Tonight while thinking of something happening in our lives soon, I couldn’t help thinking of the word, “advent.” Not the capitalized Advent preparing the way for the celebration of Jesus’s birth. But another type of advent when something important is beginning, approaching, or coming soon.
An event that is upcoming usually requires some preparation, planning, and yes, a little shopping. I’m busy thinking of all the things I need to do before the auspicious date arrives.
I’ve been waiting for the past 1,137 days for this event to come full circle. Believe me, the waiting has been hard. It has been frustrating and pain-filled. It has been stressful and depressing. Any other adjectives you can imagine on the hard side of life fit the bill too.
Now, as of today, I am only 21 days from the day I’ve been praying for along with Bob, our family, and our church family. Many Facebook friends have joined in prayers with us as well. What do we do without community around us?
Do you have any idea what I’m so excited about that I would consider waiting 1,137 days for it to come?

Lots of folks make resolutions each new year. Others set specific goals. I’ve never been successful with either. As I attempt to live in the slow lane, I’m putting aside such organized planning for my life.
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
