For the first time...

This weekend was one that I have been so looking forward to. I wish I could convey into words just what a blessing it was for me to attend my first Christian Writer's Conference. Let me just briefly say that I am having a mountain top moment and I pray that it lasts.

For the first time, I was surrounded by other people who love to write as much as I do.

For the first time, I was able to speak to authors who are actually doing what God has gifted them to do.

For the first time, I knew without a doubt that God has put a burning passion to write for Him, inside of me.

For the first time, my gift of writing was set ablaze by the words God spoke through these godly men and women.

For the first time, I am able to call myself a 'writer'.

We don't forget our 'firsts' do we?
