Greetings to everyone! I hope everyone has had a great summer as we get to that time of year where the kiddos starting heading back to school. It’s amazing to me how early that starts. Two of mine already started last week and my oldest later this week. It’s been quite a summer for me. A time where I have been very busy with family and work, but also had the opportunity to get away and spend some time relaxing at the beach.
With everything going on, I have not spent much time on my writing as I would have liked to. The blog has been very quite since early June. I found myself steering away from my own writing at times. It gets easy for life to get in the way and not focus on things the way they need to be. The last two months, 4 Pillars has been in the back of my mind, but has not taken the focus it needs. I still very much believe in what I have written. I think there is a way that each of us can focus on all areas of our life in order to really come alive and become the person that God has called to become.
My wonderful bride took an awesome step this week and started work on a business venture of her in photography. The start-up of Amber Clinton Photography has begun and I could not be more proud of her to be going after something that she truly loves to do and make it her own. The response has already been great because of the great work she has done with this as a hobby. I’m excited to see where she is able to take it over time.
Her push to make this happen has had me reflecting a great deal on myself and the work I started here at 4 Pillar Living toward the end of last year and the first half of 2012. I truly be believe that God has called me to do something big hear as well through sharing my own testimony to life and what I believe is what we all need in order to come alive. I’ve put all o this aside for too long now and it is time to get myself back on track through my writing and bring 4 Pillar Living a step further. I can’t go backwards any more. Charles Simmons said, “Never go backward. Attempt, and do it with all your might. Determination is power.”
I plan to take that determination further and keep up my writing. I still have a book a book in progress also. I had hoped to be further along in it by now, but now is the time to get it back in focus. I hope that it is something you all will support me on. I have a lot to say and I plan to get it all out over time. The first half of 2013 was an amazing ride with this venture moving and now I look forward to the next steps that it will bring to everyone
Let’s all unleash our full God given potential. We were created for a purpose and it now time to realize that purpose!
