The Wonder of WOW

WOW — the universal word for wonder. And that’s how I feel in this moment, about where God’s brought me on this writing journey.

This past week, with no formal degree, lots of past mistakes under my belt, and not a single reason I can put my finger on, God is showering me with blessings in regard to my writing efforts. I’m in awe, humbled beyond imagination, and mostly, I stumble around simply saying, “Wow.”

This morning, God sent more wows — the everyday kind. Songbirds to serenade the morning awake,  perfumes of spring lilac and wisteria to energize me, a kiss of warm breezes across my forehead, the fresh flavor of Starburst jellybeans, and a landscape of green painted beneath blue skies.

These special touches help me get through the tough times. It takes hard weeks, months, and even years, to see success when you decide to seriously pursue the mysterious world of authorship. Some never succeed at all. That’s why the everyday wows mean so much.

And then there’s someone like me. Unbelievably blessed, unsure why, but knowing that the wonder in my writing is God. He is my WOW!

Don’t forget to invite Him into your art. He is the wonder of writing, or whatever else your heart dares to dream. Any day — every day.

What WOW moments has God traced in your life?

  1. Thank you for the encouragement. I’m fairly new to the writing life, and I love how you put it: “Don’t forget to invite Him into your art.” I know that in my heart, but your way of expressing it really put the WOW in it. I’m going to print it and hang it on my office wall.


    1. I’m so glad this helped you Darla. And I pray God gives you WOW words on a regular basis as you follow Him into the adventurous life of writing. It’s definitely not a boring journey. Thank you for sharing your art with all of us.


    1. Thanks Lisa — I’m still in a state of shock I think. This afternoon I’ll start my next chapter, after officially having a deadline. It’s a strange place to be. But grateful to be here. Praying good news is on its way to you my friend! 😀


  2. So proud of you, Anita! And since you didn’t spell out the reason for your joy, I’ll do the honors!
