Freedom to Live Generously
Contributor: Ann Donaldson
Freedom to Live Generously and Abundantly is to be free to try new things.
A number of years ago, I was attending a luncheon meeting for a women’s organization. We had a dynamic speaker come in who talked to us about trying new things -actually she challenged us to try something new. For months our newsletter editor had been pleading for someone to step up and take over the newsletter. Every time I read that plea I said to myself, “Not me, I cannot do that. I don’t know enough about computers.” However, I kept feeling a little nudge. Was it a silly nudge? Was it a holy nudge? I came home from that luncheon, talked it over with my husband, and then slept on the idea.
"Lord, can I do this?" In the morning I called the editor and agreed to come over for a training session. The job was mine! I put out those newsletters for ten years before I decided someone else needed to try something new. I cannot say there were no frustrations and late nights, but I did it! I was amazed. They were beautiful. I found that I looked forward to trying to figure out how to add more pictures, more colors, more beauty.
