What would you do if you could not fail?

I was listening to K-Love on the drive in to work this morning. They’re doing their Fall pledge drive, so the show content is a bit limited and more of a “greatest hits” mix of previous shows and them repeating the phone number OVER and OVER again seeking donors. One of the archive calls in to the station asked the question, “What would you do if you could not fail?” The radio personalities expanded on it and reminded listeners that “Where God guides he always provides” which has me thinking today.

This week is my last week of maternity leave, so I’m only working on this while my little girl is sleeping or entertaining herself quietly on her play mat beside me. I still have to finish formatting several template pages for my custom WordPress theme, pick out which projects are worthy of my portfolio, and input all of them with some brief notes/explanations. This will [and should] always be an ongoing project of mine, but I’m really going to push to get the initial thing up and running in the next 2 days. Oi – back to...
