Confessions...I am a snob too.

 Okay, so I have a propensity to spew honesty, but that doesn't mean I always enjoy spelling it out for myself or others! It is time I fess up though and reveal parts of me that I am just beginning to recognize, well sort of.

So what better way to do it then couple my confessions with humor?

I am a chicken. "Bock, Bock people." I tell you this because I reluctantly mustered up the courage to send some Children's picture books ( I wrote two, and retold/illustrated book number three) to three publishers. No agent was involved or harmed in the process.
I can't take much credit. On a serious note, I obeyed God and just a year ago began handing over my dreams with the hopes that they would be fulfilled, but knowing that the handing over has nothing to do with success; my obedience and humble heart and me is what He really wants. The rest is just a bonus bubble gum you got out of the machine. And this process doesn't humanly guarantee you those fine lines around your eyes will go away or your money back.
No, the payoff is not the focus. 
It is the deeper intimacy with the Father and it is beautiful.
It is walking blind folded in a room you don't know and
still feeling safe.

And this is where I am at. I sent the books and now I have to wait. This is getting out of the way. I need to pray so that when the rejection comes and I expect it some that I will not assume anything or be crushed. That I will hear His voice for what to do next.

Confession #2
     I don't know if it because I am a couple years shy of 40 or what, but I AM A SNOB! 
No, I haven't always been and no, I am not snobby about everything, however, I am finding that you really do get what you pay for!

Here is where I have turned snobby:

1. Chocolate. No, no, Hershey's will not do! All chocolate is well, chocolate, but um, it aint. Not until you've tried true Belgian chocolate go here or homemade chocolate from a non-chain chocolate store...go here, you won't regret it  -That woman who owns this place was trained under a  Swiss master chocolatier  (I tasted the chocolates in person and wow)!  My personal local favorite is from Boulder, Colorado called, Chocolove.
   I just find that American chocolate for the most part doesn't do it for me. It tastes cheap. Again, I am a snob about this.

2. Bras. Yes, the b-word. Isn't it bad enough we have to wear something strapped to us? Shouldn't it be comfortable? Not scratchy, itchy and or chafing? Assuming that you are wearing the er, correct size and all, the bra should feel soft and wearable. And I am talking about a REAL bra...not something cute for hubby! I refuse to wear a cheap brand. I know, I know I sound like a typical spoiled U.S. female. No, I am not so low to have my bills go unpaid or be in debt for a good bra, but I have to say it is something I would be willing to save up for! It is just that important.

3. Shoes. This is definitely a sign that I am getting old. I rarely do heels. Yes, they make us all have firmer looking bottoms and all, but I don't like my feet to hurt. I don't want to look like Barbie for the rest of my life...permanent feet in a heel position with doctor bills for a bad back!
Now, I will tell you that you don't have to spend hundreds of dollars necessary to get a good shoe and that the price tag does NOT always guarantee a cushion cloud for your foot. So I patiently wait for shoes to go on sale and the key is to try and try and try shoes on to find the brands that feel cozy to you.

Okay, so there you have it...my confessions. Your turn, do you have any thing you have stepped out of fear that you handed to God? Are you snobby about anything?
-Please don't leave me hanging...leave a comment.

  1. Hi. Congratulations on following your dreams. May God's Grace precede you there-I salute you. On being a snob, me too, and it hasn't a thing to do with age....it just is. Bras and shoes, oh I get it.
    I'm so glad I found you at the Soli Deo Gloria party-so true, you never know what wonders await you. I wrote a post about dreaming...so I'm glad I found a dreamer just ahead of me on the path.
    Peace and good to you,

  2. HEY I think that's so great you sent off your books to a publisher. I am planning to write a book, actually several books, too. I really need to give myself a deadline!!!!
