The Christmas Column The Newspaper Wouldn't Run
It is a huge step of faith, to write the words from the secret chambers of one's heart, to be broadcast in print and online journalism.
Sometimes I wonder, "Why, am I doing this? Why am I exposing myself to the unknown?"
For me there is only one answer: A Calling From A Source far GREATER Than I.
"But why me?" I ask.
"Because you are willing to step out for what you believe, regardless of the consequences. This is a sign of a TRUE BELIEVER. One who lets their faith and trust in God, reign supreme over all the inferior things of this world."
While all of my other columns were fit to print, the editor of the newspaper decided my Christmas story was not acceptable. I respect her position, to make whatever decisions she must for the newspaper, that she has been entrusted with the job of editing.
For me the bottom line is, even though I write a column with my own unique slant on food and entertaining, when I write a column at Christmas, I believe there is a far more important food-related message to share. As politically-incorrect as that may be, it is the eternal hope that fires my imagination and gives voice to my creativity.
When I learned that the paper would not be running my story, I contributed the article to EzineArticles. It is titled A Christmas Story.
The mysterious thing was, I had originally penned a Champagne and Oysters Holiday Story for the newspaper, but shortly before submitting that story for publication, I was given the divine message of A Christmas Story as being the one to submit. There appeared to be no question in my mind, that I was being prompted by the voice of the Almighty. I could choose to listen and obey, or I could silence the voice.
I chose to listen and obey the Almighty, because I believe as Jeremiah 29:11 states: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord. "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
