WiP...life and writing

L-WiP (Life Work in Progress):

Last week I posted about my one word. Secure.  I recounted how that my security was already being tested by the elevator news.  I have an update on how that turned out already!  The day after I posted about it, a sign went up letting us all know that it would happen March 2-21. I have a month to get ready for it mentally and physically (not days like I had originally thought). Then, just a few days ago, the noticed came down. Our guard let us know that the building managers had changed their minds. The elevator would be replaced at a different time. I'm not sure when, but I'm elated that it isn't going to be happening within the next few months!  

I feel like I've been swirled around with my word this week. I have a group of college friends (9 if you want to know how many) that I'm still tight with. This week we've been sharing with each other the ins and outs of our lives.  I'm always amazed by them, have been since the first day I met them. All godly ladies who seek the Lord. 
But, again, through their emails and through a Bible study on Ruth by Kelly Minter I was reminded of a Psalm that is so fitting.  This same Psalm was part of a study I did a year ago on Esther by Beth Moore.  (You'd think I'd get the clue then, eh?)
Anyway, I want share it with you now. It has been a comfort for me when I'm feeling like all is out of control and I'm not sure what God is doing in my life personally.  
Psalm 16:5-6, 8 (NIV)
LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
* note that I added the bold for emphasis.

The whole Psalm is great. But, see that word is there....secure.  I  think I found my verse(s) for the year.

WiP (Work in Progress)
I've "finished" editing Chapter 1-2 of my novel. I say "finished" because it is just the first round. I plan to go over it again today while Jie Jie is in ST before sending it to a few people to give it a look over.  So, this class is going to end.
I have not worked on any short stories though, which is something that I will focus on after the editing. =)

So, question for you?  How is your L-WiP coming along? Do you have a verse for the year? How about your writing....do you like to edit?
