One Step Closer. . .

Yes, I've entered the world of "blogdom". A step I would not have imagined just a few months ago. Why now? It's a new year filled with new challenges and new opportunities...
The title for today's post and the title of this blog--One Step Closer--is significant in that this title describes what I hope will be my motto, credo, mantra, mission statement (you name it) this year. A year of being one step closer to my Lord and Savior, one step closer to being the Christian woman I long to be, one step closer to being a healthier lady who carries less weight around--figuratively and emotionally, one step closer to being the writer Christ wants me to be, one step closer to thee....
I imagine by now you get the picture. Getting closer only requires one thing from me: To take a step, maybe just a small step, but a step none the less. If I commit to daily stepping forward, by the end of this year, I should be much closer to where I need to be. That seems so much easier than setting lofty goals. Wouldn't you agree?

Marian, I think it's very cool to blog. (I have three blogs!) It forces me to think about writing with greater regularity than I normally would, because my blogs mostly address spiritual and literary issues. Mostly.

It also helps you find your "true voice". I find I'm more myself writing my blog than I often am writing a story. No pressure...just me and my opinions and observations.

Now, if I could just transfer it successfully to a novel. :)

Happy blogging.

Mir--who also needs to lose weight..sigh...and could definitely walk closer to the Lord...

Neat. Naturally I'd like it, though, cause you used the same template I used. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

You go girl! This is my one of my life's goals as well as encouraging others one step closer to Him.
