20/20 Hindsight

20/20 Hindsight

Each January signals a mad scramble to enter the Oklahoma Writer’s Federation contest before the cut off date of January 31. This year I was ahead of the game. I entered thirteen categories on January 8.

This last weekend I attended the conference in Oklahoma City. On Saturday night they announce the winners. As I sat at the banquet awaiting the results I noticed a strange irony on my entry list. My entries included titles such as Good Memories, Last Farewell, The Widow’s Song, Missing Daddy, The Widow, and Changing Times.

I wonder if the Lord was sending me a signal that He knew I’d be a widow by May 5? Perhaps, in His mercy He hid that little detail from me.

P.S. I took Third Place in the Inspirational Article Category with twenty-nine entries.

    1. Lori, I’ve scheduled a post to appear June 16, 2018 per your request. It is the poem I entered for the Poetry, Unrhymed, Long in the 2018 Oklahoma Writers Federation, Inc. (OWFI) contest.
