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’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
What is a miracle? How would you define it? Can anyone do a miracle? Be a miracle to someone else? And, what’s the “greatest” miracle of all? How can you get a miracle if you need it? Let’s explore. #miracles #amwriting @donnalhsmith
Webster’s defines a miracle as: a strange thing, something to wonder at, something wonderful. 1) An event or action that apparently contradicts known scientific laws and is hence thought to be due to supernatural causes, especially an act of God. 2) a remarkable event or thing, marvel. 3) a wonderful example.
