There are a couple of three blogger friends I’ve met in the two years I’ve blogged who are of the male persuasion, all married to wonderful women, whom God has seemingly made into my Christian Mentor/Father figure types…at least from my perspective, they are. They probably don’t even know I feel this way about them.
One of them though, recently told me to “share my blessings.” At first that didn’t really spark anything within me — after I was trying to get to sleep one night, that phrase kept repeating itself through my mind and it wouldn’t let me sleep. Finally, I murmured, “Okay, I get it, God. I will share my blessings on the blog!”
Boom, then I was out like a light.
(Chuckle) Edwin Christian, thanks for the tip. You are someone who has become like a close family member to me. I know I don’t always take your advice graciously, or your usually gentle rebuke, lol…but I am careful to see your daily walk with Christ and listen close, even when you think I haven’t been. You help keep me on the straight and narrow, more often than you know.
Anyways, this is the “share your blessings” series, and the first thing I’m going to share is that I’ve been actually working on my book! I have a publisher that is ringing my phone off of the wall nearly daily, attempting to light a fire under my saddle to get me to finish writing this work of personal fantasy/fiction. I’m the world’s worst at procrastinating though, so it’s been an uphill battle for her. Lately however, I’ve been working on the book until the wee hours of the morning and I’m speeding along practically near Chapter Five at this point!
I’m blessed. I wonder if I’ve told you readers exactly how much.
Writing this book is a wonderful blessing in my life. I will finish this book; I really, really will! Thank you, Lord, for putting people into my path that help me meet the seriously important goals in my life because this book is one of them.
I think we could probably fill another book with our various personal blessings as Christians, and it would probably be much more fun to read than some of the stuff I write upon this blog lately.
Sometimes I tend to get to venting, moaning, and groaning about politics, and preaching even. I will try to focus more upon sharing my blessings with the treasured people who read me. May God bless each one of you as He has me.
