I feel a little like Thomas Edison. He tried 2000 experiments in search of a filament that would work in his light bulb. He didn't see them as failures but as a way to narrow down the possibilities in search of the one idea that would work. That is what I'm doing, on a smaller scale. I just received word from a transcription company I applied to last week that I didn't get the job. Okay, one door closed. I know that isn't the direction I'm supposed to go. I still would like to start my business on line, but I have to come up with the money to start it. I am still writing. I'll probably finish my book before I come up with the money for my business. If no one publishes my book, I'll know that wasn't the direction I was supposed to go, but I am having fun writing it. I also enjoy hearing from my friends how much they like it, at least I've been able to brighten a few people's days through it.
So, I trudge on, grateful that when God closes doors he opens windows. I just have to keep stepping through them. I must remain faithful to his guiding. By the way, I still have the Pillsbury Bake-Off!! ;-)
