40 Days for Life...

This amazing yearly Life campaign begins once again tomorrow.  It will go through November 4th.  I find it fitting and profound that it coincides with the last 40 days of such an important election.

All elections are important...we as citizens should all see the great importance and responsibility of voting as an American citizen.  Yet, this year we must stand up and take notice.

Therefore I want to challenge each of us to really reflect on the 40 days for Life and combine it with our petition and prayers for our nation.

Can you offer up some sort of extra sacrifice, fast, during this 40 days?

And check out 40 Days for Life's devotional.  http://40daysforlife.com/getinvolved.cfm  It is powerful!

Will you join me in this devotion?  Offer these prayers up for Life...for our Nation...for eyes to be opened.

I plan on adding an Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory be each morning after the devotional.

Finally join me with a fast during this 40 days.  Remember it just has to be something that would be a sacrifice that allows you to lean more on God and spend time with Him rather than the desire for that activity or food or drink...etc.

May we all feel HIS awesome power through our prayer and fasting for LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS! (How fitting if you ask me!)

Seasons of Change...

As I approached this new school year I entered into a very specific prayer and fast to ensure I could hear what God wanted from me for raising our wonderful daughter.  I was praying specifically about the intellect aspect of her schooling and the new year but instead I found answers to spiritual importance as well as things I needed to do and focus on.

I realized for how much I have enjoyed writing for Examiner.com it was starting to become a "chore" or a distraction from the important things I needed to be taking care of...ie....engaging with my wonderful child!

What I did learn from my writing for Examiner.com:

1.  I became disciplined in writing consistently everyday; whether for myself or for an article.  I have made it an important part of my day to sit down and write first thing in the morning after my prayer/devotion.
2.  I rediscovered how healing and therapeutic writing is.  I have always loved to write, but I always thought I had to have something profound and lofty in-order to write or be published.
3.  I found we all have something to share with this great big wonderful world.  It doesn't have to be perfect, just spread a love filled ripple for God and His glory.
4.  I discovered a totally different way to pray and connect with God through my writing.
5.  And finally I realized I want this blog to be where I focus my writing, because here is where I can write ANYTHING I want to write about.  I don't have to follow guidelines or trends.

I want to be able to write about anything and everything I am passionate about.  It doesn't matter to me if everyone or no one wants to read it...what does matter is it is written with love and with God always as my focus!

Thus, I am going to start posting regularly and in this stage in my life, exclusively, here at FRICK WRITES!

I've been having fun thinking of things I really want to write about.  I have found it difficult to keep it to one thing.  Then I realized I don't have to, cause for me as long as it always is giving glory and honor to God then it is all great!

Which then led me to figure out some fun themes and/or titles for my blog.  I love doing play on words or letters.  Which got me to thinking about Frick Writes...and my name: Frick....which led me to this thought:

Faith....
Family...
Food...
Fun...
Frick...

And that pretty much sums up all of who I am and what I am passionate about!

I would love to hear any of your thoughts....
