Hi everyone. Finally, I made it. Number 7 on the beginner's list! Wow! I was almost ready to just give up many times. I had written two other stories for empty & full, but I just couldn't get them to "feel" right. Then, with just a few hours left before the entry deadline, I remembered a story that my dad told us, about how he was sure that God had called him to preach. I wrote it very quickly, and never thought that it would be on any list. So, to anyone wanting to give up, don't. Give it up to God before you start writing, and He will guide you through your endeavor.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take. Prov. 3:5-6
