Cooking a meal takes effort; cooking 18,615 meals (3 meals a day x 365 days x 17 years) takes dedication.  Facing danger requires effort; facing danger every day for 730 days during a two-year deployment takes dedication.  Writing one blog post takes effort; writing a blog post starting with each letter of the alphabet during a single month takes dedication.

When we put forth effort, we receive reward.  Maybe it is money; maybe it is satisfaction at a job well done or from making a difference.  One reward we get from dedication is reputation.  When one cooks a tasty meal, one hears, "That was a great meal!"  When one cooks 18,615 tasty meals, we hear, "You are a wonderful cook!"


  1. I bet you're a wonderful cook! Cute eight this week.

  2. A different sort of excerpt but I enjoyed taking a moment to think about dedication from the viewpoint you present. Well done!

    1. I expect most people do fiction excerpts, but I'm really wanting to re-work my non-fiction piece on Proverbs 31 to turn it into an e-book. Thanks for visiting, Veronica! :O)

  3. Yes, dedication is definitely something that never comes easy! And sometimes I think people think too lightly of the dedication people put into blogging!
