Today, I celebrate and reflect on one solid year of daily writing,
consider the coming year.
I’ll go for two and do it again –
with more intentional themes this year.
I’ll begin two books.
There. I’ve written it, shared it in print.
A blog post each day
I won’t take a sabbatical from work.
Who writes two books at once?
My people and I do.
Because there are stories to be told
that must be told now.
While every voice is ready to tell them.
One is a father/daughter book.
I’ll write parts and pass the baton.
Back and forth we’ll write stories we must tell.
Then I’ll rest a moment,
pick up the other baton.
The second is a book of many voices of hope ~
Hope that is needed now more than ever
God is still in the miracle-working business.
I’ll be a collector of miracles,
Of inward journeys to
the depths of souls,
Where God changes the
Where He restores brokenness,
where He performs
Life-saving miracles the world needs to know.
I listen to these stories.
I pick up the pen.
This is why I write.
This is my why.
29 Lord, pay attention to their threats now, and allow your servants to speak your word boldly 30 as you stretch out your hand to heal and to perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
