When Community is Your God Sized Dream

Two years ago I opened an email with an application in it. The application was to join Holley Gerth's
God Sized Dream team. I don't even remember what I wrote at that point. I'm sure it was some lofty
dream about writing a book or having a huge blog with millions of followers. (I was a little niave back
then.) But what I do know is that my God sized dream is not anything like what I would have thought
back then (because you know, two years ago is such a long time).

I realize now that I wasn't looking for fame or big paychecks from a book or a blog- I was searching for community. When I opened the email a few weeks later telling me that Holley had seen something in my application that made her want me on that book launch team, I could never have imagined where it would have taken me. I don't even blog that often anymore. Instead I sit and bask in the friendships and the family that were given to me through a God sized dream that wasn't really even for me. I know, how could it have been a God sized dream if it really wasn't for you?
