Are you ready to move past your pain? Do you want to be free from condemnation, self-hatred, low self-esteem? Can you open your heart enough to forgive? Let’s look at it. @donnalhsmith #rejectionissues #rejectionsymptoms #rejectionhope TWEETABLE
This post is the last blog birthday post for this year. I’ve had fun revisiting some of the highest viewed posts and sharing again some of my personal journey with you. This one from last year on God’s Special Effects. @donnalhsmith @a3writers #GodsSpecialEffects2018 #amwriting #BLOGbirthdayFeb172014 #fiveyears
I introduced this series last year to discuss something else I’m growing in—and it’s a process—my prophetic gift. It’s not the same as being a psychic. I hear things from God, not in my mind, but in my spirit. Last year Philadelphia Eagles fans were treated to their one and only Super Bowl. In that series, I discuss how God actually, sorta, “told” me they’d win. Or did He?
Here’s the link to Part 2 of God’s Special Effects from February of last year.
Have a blessed day! @donnalhsmith @#GodsSpecialEffects2018 #amwriting #BLOGbirthdayFeb172014 #fiveyears
I looked at some statistics yesterday. WordPress is excellent at showing me how many visitors and views are in a day, week, month, or year. It also shows me where people are from, and if they searched, how they found me. #amwriting #BLOGbirthdayFeb172014 #fiveyears @donnalhsmith @a3writers
Today, I’ll share the blog post that holds the record for most views in a day. In 2015, I wrote about a strange rejection I had for Meghan’s Choice in a contest. It was called “Please Get Your Facts Straight.” Everyone agrees with me, when I tell this story, that it is possibly the weirdest rejection they’d ever heard of.
Here’s the Re-blog of it that still gets views today. If you’re a writer, and you have a weirder story than this for a rejection story, I’d like to hear it. Leave a comment and let me know.
Meghan’s Choice is published and made the finals of two contests last year. So, I have come a long way. I feel pretty good about where I’m at. #amwriting #BLOGbirthdayFeb172014 #fiveyears @donnalhsmith @a3writers
Yesterday, I said if abortion had been legal 25 years earlier, I might not be here. But what about young women/girls who are raped? Should they be forced to carry their child? Not forced. They choose life, not death. Do I deserve to be here? #WhatWasISupposedToBe @donnalhsmith #RayBoltz #prolifeissues TWEETABLE
The song “What Was I Supposed to Be?” was brought back to my mind a couple weeks ago after some states voted to allow late-term abortions up until birth. I used to sing this song, and I got to hear a recording of it on Sunday I didn’t know I had. Ray Boltz wrote this well over 25 years ago. If abortion had been legal in the 1950s, I would probably not be here. For those who might even think that abortion should be available for those who have been victimized by rape or incest, again, I would probably not be here. Do I deserve to be here? #WhatWasISupposedToBe @donnalhsmith #RayBoltz #prolifeissues TWEETABLE
Almost a month of this year GONE—already! It goes so fast! I’m starting to make plans for later this year, and I’m also seeing what unfolds. I sent off an email this morning about teaching at a small writers’ retreat in October. I’m researching a destination for a weekend away. What one step will you take to reach your goal or your dream this year? @donnalhsmith @a3writers #HappyNewYear2019 #Lookforward #SeethePossibilities TWEETABLE
Within the past five years or so, there have been at least six blood moons. I missed every one of them—until Sunday night. I thought sure I’d missed this one, too. What do blood moons represent? Is it prophecy? Is it even spiritual? Or is it a totally natural event? @donnalhsmith @a3writers #2019lunareclipse #BloodMoon #SuperMoon TWEETABLE
