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!
Wow! It amazes me that we just began the last half of 2019. I don’t know about you—but my year has gone fast! #2019halfgone #amwriting @donnalhsmith
Did you make plans for this year six months ago? Or have there been a lot of surprises!
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.
The Kingdom of God is an “invisible” kingdom. We don’t normally see it with our natural eyes—except when something miraculous happens. That’s why we need to bring more of Heaven to Earth. #nofear #amwriting #faithnotfear @donnalhsmith
Romans 14:17 says, “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. We hear a lot about the Kingdom of God, but does anyone really know what it is and where it is? Let’s find out. #nofear #amwriting #faithnotfear @donnalhsmith TWEETABLE
I’m on social media a lot—kinda have to be because of being a writer, I need to interact with people far away. I see posts on social media that spread fear by sharing the things that are happening, that when shared, actually cause more fear in people. #nofear #amwriting #faithnotfear @donnalhsmith TWEETABLE
