My blogging friend, Carol, inspired me with her post about making a difference. I hope you'll visit her and check it out.
Do you ever wonder if your writing or blogging makes an impact on anyone? I do. Carol's post reminded me not to despise small beginnings. The young woman she wrote about collected $164 in pennies when she first began fund raising. Little by little, the amount grew until it's now in the millions. She inspired others to join in her efforts.
Our voices may be a whisper in cyberspace or print, but someone is listening. As that person catches the vision and runs with it, the sound amplifies. We'll never know the true extent of our influence until we reach our heavenly home.
Writers: How do you maintain a healthy perspective on your writing journey?
Readers: Has a devotional, blog post, or book encouraged you to press on through a difficult situation? Please share.
I'll go first, speaking from a reader's perspective. After my husband died, I read a book where one of the characters dealt with grief. The author handled the subject and brought much comfort to my aching heart.
