IT IS MY PLEASURE TO WELCOME AUTHOR SHERRY SHINDELAR TO THE OVER 50 WRITER. SHERRY SHARES A CHILDHOOD MEMORY THAT HELPED HER GAIN PERSPECTIVE ON PERFECTION.

 

 

PERFECTION

 

 

by

 

 

Sherry Shindelar

 

 

A few weeks ago, I was really frustrated with my writing. I was entering a contest, and I wanted to get everything just right. I wanted my chapter to be perfect, and anything short of that didn’t seem good enough. Then, I saw a box of crayons, and the Lord reminded me of a lesson I’d started to learn long ago.

 

 

 

When I was in 1st grade, I used to take my red crayon and draw a big red X across my workbook page if I had a single incorrect answer. If didn’t matter if there were 20 questions, and I got 19 out of 20 right. If I missed one answer, the whole page was wrong. I concentrated on where I’d fallen short instead of on where I’d succeeded. I wanted perfection.

 

 

 

It used to drive my teacher crazy, and it took a lot of scolding on her part, before I got it through my head: I didn’t need to throw out everything that was good because of one mistake.

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve since grown up and put away my crayons. But sometimes I still focus on the spot and forget to appreciate all that’s right, whether it’s in the beauty of a day or in my writing.  

 

 

 

I think each of us can get so caught up in the step we missed or where we fell short that we stop climbing. We miss the mountaintop because we trip on a pebble. And too often we forget that we don’t run alone.

 

 

 

The Lord doesn’t expect us to get everything perfect. But He has called us to keep on running, to keep on climbing, and to keep our eyes on the finish line. Perseverance. Determination. Not perfection.

 

 

 

Originally from Tennessee and the Shenandoah Valley area of Virginia, Sherry Shindelar loves to take her readers into the past. She is an avid student of the American Civil War, and her current novel in progress, Shenandoah’s Daughter, is set in the Shenandoah Valley during 1863 – 1864. When she is not busy writing, Sherry is a college English professor working to pass on her love of writing and literature to the next generation. Sherry won the 2020 ACFW First Impressions Award for Historical Romance and is a semi-finalist in the 2021 ACFW Genesis Contest in the Historical Romance category. In addition, she has won two MN State Art Grants and a RWA scholarship. She currently resides in Minnesota with her husband.

Great article! It’s so encouraging to realize that perseverance — not perfection — is the goal. And I love the reminder that with Jesus, we needn’t walk alone. Thank you so much! I needed this.

A great message. Thank you for sharing. I am thankful God doesn't require us to be perfect. :-)

Hi Melissa. For sure! I would fall far short of the mark. Thank you for stopping by and contributing to the conversation.
