Literary Athletes

In honor of this day of all things "football," I give you Tim Tebow and his eyes of inspiration.

Philippians 4:13
I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.


My daughter came home yesterday, having watched the Ole Miss game, and said, "they sure showed Phil alot!"

My husband and I looked at her wondering who she was talking about. "Who?" we asked.

"That guy with Phil under his eyes. He played the whole time!"

But in all seriousness, I love that verse. It makes me know that:

I can write.

I can revise.

I can wait.

I can revise again.

And again.

And again.

I will trust.

I will endure.

I will succeed.

Because He is my rock and my strength. And I am a literary athlete, working day in and day out, giving this career 110%. And so are you!

Rock on writer people! This is our year!

I suck at regular athletics, so the thought of being a literary athlete is very appealing. Love it.

Well, you ARE one damn good writer! I loved that post, and I am not saying that just because we are somewhat related! It was suspenseful, humorous, uplifting, and inspirational!

How 2010 of you. I'm motivated. Well, if I can just get off this couch, shave my legs for the first time in two weeks and get to work where I HAVEN'T been in three.. I'll be totally motivated.

Happy New Year!

I love this post, Katie! "literary athlete" goes great with "writer weightlifting". I don't know if you read that post on my blog, but they do go nicely together. :-)

Happy New year!
