It seems my whole life has been one delay after another since I was born. I was an “early” baby, or premie, but I was delayed after birth by a stint in an incubator. My longest hospital stay was at that time. Thirteen days. @donnalhsmith #amwriting #lifesdelays #howdoyouhandledelay
The other day Facebook reminded me that I’ve been friends with Author Justina Luther for six years. She went on to do a blog post about our Christian Writer’s Guild Craftsman residency in Colorado. @donnalhsmith @justinaluther #memories #goodfriends #amwriting #craftsmanxi
It’s interesting what details we remember about a particular event.
Why is it important to “say something eternal? Many years ago I heard a teaching about our “works.” It changed my life and made me get my mind off myself and onto what God might want me to do. @donnalhsmith #GodsMysteriousWays #SaySomethingEternal #GodsCallOnMyLife
A few months ago, I decided to take a break from blogging. It’s been a good break. I focused on my studies, finished my third novel, taught at a Christian writer’s conference, went to the New Jersey shore for my birthday, got my Medicare card, and have been celebrating my freedom in Christ. But now, I feel the urge to write again—to “say” something. @donnalhsmith #GodsMysteriousWays #SaySomethingEternal #GodsCallOnMyLife #GodisAmazing
I’ve been blogging regularly since 2009. I’ve had several blogs on a couple different platforms. I started this blog in 2014 to show my writing journey to publication. I made it. I’m published. But I have other interests and things God is preparing me for.
So rather than publish every week, at least for this summer—I’m taking a bit of a break.
I’m only going to write when I feel I have something to say. Something important. Something eternally significant.
Feel free to enjoy the archives—which I know you do. What is it about “Stuck—A Winter Disaster Story” that intrigues you readers so much? It’s summertime, and people are still reading it. I am pleased and amused.
And let me know what you’d like to see on this blog. I’ve kind of changed the focus, and I may do so again—but I love feedback. Id’ love to know what you like about the website, and what you don’t.
In the meantime, may you have a blessed summer!
I’m getting to the point that wherever I am, if someone needs prayer, I’ll pray. It’s kind of a cop-out to say, “I’ll pray for you” if you don’t pray right then and there. #miraclesatwritersconference #prayer #amwriting @donnalhsmith
There’s a lot I could say about this, but I’m going to just share what miracles I’ve seen in my lifetime. Have you seen a blind woman get her sight back? Has someone you prayed for received a cessation of pain? Increased mobility? #miracles #amwriting @donnalhsmith
