Right around the new year, someone I know had this as her facebook status:

So and So has her wishbone where her backbone should be.

I read it and cracked up.

And related.

How many times have I sat around wishing for something to work out, when what I probably needed was to collect myself, grow a backbone, and make it happen?

No more wishbone where my backbone should be.

When I read that facebook status, I was in the process of making decisions that would shape 2011, and the status, however humorous, actually shaped those.  It's funny, the things God has used to challenge me.  Facebook statuses, time with friends, books.  God speaks in funny ways to me.  And I'm so thankful that I'm learning to listen for those prompts, even when they come in humorous facebook statuses.
