The Year Of Firsts Devotional
I thought I'd wait to start my story about our loss of Joshua, but God had other plans.
A dear friend of mine gave me a suggestion, as I thought and wrestled with how to write my book. She said, "Why don't you write a devotional about your loss of Joshua? That way, you can do it a bit at a time."
Well, I thought, why not?
I loved her idea, and I had not even considered it. The thought of writing one daily devotional a day made it seem doable. I knew sometimes I'd be sobbing through the writing process, and so this way I could meet the 150 words a day easily enough.
Now, I am at day four of the devotional and am glad to have begun. I've included a prayer at the end and will later add the scriptures for each beginning.
So dear friend, Pat, thank you for giving me an idea that I could manage. God bless you!
Until next time . . . listen, because God can and does speak through others.
