Wishy Washy Me and Emily Freeman!

I like to think its’ the DREAMER in me! instead of, “Pat, why can’t you just stick to one thing?”

I like to think it’s because I have SO MUCH creativety  instead of , “Pat, why are you so undisciplined?”

One voice is the voice of God’s  grace and the other voice is the voice of condemnation and accusation.

I like to think the grace way.

Just as I was wavering between those 2 worlds of thought I landed on this blog post last night from Emily Freeman’s “Chatting at the Sky” blog “A Word to Writers on Changing Your mInd”.

It was God 🙂



I love Emily’s blog. The title alone grabs me because I know that my own chatting at the sky is  where I find my best audience 🙂 and do my best work.

God is SO good. I love it when He helps me feel normal. When He gives me someone to identify with so that I don’t feel all alone.

All this to say–At the beginning of this year I made the big announcement that I was going to post a “WEEKLY” aka “Every SUNDAY” post called S.E.E.D.S. from my Imagine Me..Set Free website.

It sounded so good at the time but it isn’t GOOD for me. I move offices and houses. I travel. If I don’t make church on Saturday night, I go on Sunday morning which leads to Sunday stuff with friends and family. If I do make it on Saturday night and I am not traveling or moving–I go to the beach, or ride a bike or garden.

I don’t like the pressure of having to write something every Sunday. I just don’t.  I DO plan to post more blogs right here as I am unwrapping a new book–but in order to protect myself, I won’t say how often.

I am praying that somebody wants to actually READ what I have to write and SOMEBODY will tell me what they like and don’t like as I write.

But for now, with sweet Emily’s permission and inspired courage. I want to admit that I have Changed My Mind.

I will NOT be posting SEEDS every Sunday but I WILL be posting both SEEDS and WORDS as God inspires me and I feel like I have something to say.

I will also be praying that somebody cares 🙂

Is that OK?

Tell me–are YOU every Wishy Washy or is it just me and Emily?

  1. Call me Charlie Brown and let me join the wishy washy club!! I soooo related to your post. I too promised to write weekly or when the words struck me but the ideas come and go with no clickety clat of my keyboard. Think I need to head over and read Enily’s blog as well. Thank you for your words!! Totally hit home with me today. 🙂

    1. Trish, I LOVE Charlie Brown LOL. Thank you for understanding and urging me on! Right back at you dear 🙂

  2. It’s called LIFE and it happens. Don’t beat yourself up over it. Post when you can and what you can. It’s a lesson I’ve had to learn over the past few years. I try for 3 times a week. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn’t. As I prepare to launch the HeBrews Bible study, I may post more often. Who knows?

    1. Leah, so true my dear–hope all is blooming for you in the beautiful N Georgia Mountains! Send me a copy of your study, I’ll do it with you 🙂

  3. I love reading your posts anytime and everytime! They are always from your heart and such an inspiration to all who read. Wishy washy can get a lot of things done! I always wait anxiously for your new words and I would imagine writing as things come to your heart would be much easier than writing to meet a deadline. Keep doing what you’re doing!
    love ya!

  4. I definitely agree with the two of you. If I am living in the present and using God as my GPS……and you mix that with my creative spirit and of course you are going to meet a woman who changes her mind….so many choices, not enough time! Love the way you write and the way God uses your mind!

  5. I am Just as swishy washy….if not MORE than the both of you put together! But that’s what makes us unique and perfectly handcrafted by God! Right?! 🙂 I love you, your heart, and all the time sacrificed to write us blogs – as I know personally the time it takes 🙂 love you Pat!
