Day 19 of 31-Brought together….the Dream Team…

remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility,
Ephesians 2:12-14 (NIV)

In early November, I applied to be a member of Holley Gerth's God-sized Dream Team. Who's Holley Gerth? She is a cofounder of (in)courage, the women’s community founded by DaySpring, the Christian subsidiary of Hallmark. She is also a best-selling author and life coach committed to bring hope and encouragement to the hearts of women through words. I'd never even heard of a God-sized dream. I'd been writing for nearly two years and felt like this might be an opportunity to do more, so, in the midst of all the craziness happening in our lives at the time, I responded to her dare…

Hello Beautiful God-sized Dreamer!
Does someone you know need a smile?
“I’m building a God-sized Dreams Team! If you’re a blogger who wants to make 2013 the year you say “yes” to your God-sized dream and encourage others to do the same then apply to be on the team here by November 7th {limit 99 women}.” 

Mostly I was proud of myself for taking a chance, but I don’t know that I thought anything would come of it. We were supposed to apply and anticipated hearing something in 4 weeks. Imagine my surprise when this hit my inbox 7 days later,
Hello Beautiful God-sized Dreamer!
Thank you so much for wanting to be part of the God-sized Dreams Team. I'm thrilled to let you know what you are on it. :)

So, it’s official, Holley announced us on her blog, in Meet Your God-sized Dream Team. If you’ve ever read anything I’ve written, thank you. If you’ve encouraged me or supported me in any way, thank you. If you’ve ever offered prayers, jokes, or feedback, thank you. I cannot wait to see what happens next, but I’m just so excited and honored by where God is leading me that I wanted to share it with you. Click here to read all about it. 

Thank You, Father, for being in control of my life…

On Thursdays, I pray and and play with friends here...
