Morning Coffee with Jesus
And So Begins the Journey.....
I am a writer. It is what I do.
I don't do it for a living - it doesn't pay enough. I don't do it as a hobby - for if I pick and choose when to write I would find myself in utter misery - the ache in my soul would be so strong.
I write when I am lead to write, when I have something to say, when my heart is thankful for all that I have, when I am mad over all I have lost, when I see injustice abound. I write, not out of selfish ambition, but as a way to communicate the depths of my soul to those interested enough to listen. Maybe you will respond, maybe you won't. Irrespective, I'll still write.
I have been writing for a very long time - since my childhood. Oh, I may not have had anything published in my youth and many times what I wrote never even made it to a page or a computer screen but as a child I wrote - songs, stories, poems, conjecture. I wrote and wrote and wrote.
There are a few things for which I have a passion - people, history, God, faith, injustice, time management, organizational skills management, and the like (not necessarily in order of importance). And so begins the journey. As I use this site to publish my thoughts I do so recognizing that not everyone will agree. That's good.
I have been publishing an on line daily (Monday - Friday) devotional, "Morning Coffee with Jesus" for the past 8 months with distribution through a mailing list. Now I'm taking it up a "notch." If you like this daily devo, please tell your friends. If you don't like it, please tell me!
Tomorrow (Monday, November 16, 2009) will be my first devo on this site. The theme will focus on "Thanksgiving" and I'll focus on this theme until, you guessed it, Thanksgiving!
Here's to hoping that those of us, who write, read and are read. But not only is it my desire simply to write or to be read. It is my heartfelt desire to stir you to action!
May God richly bless us as we forge unplowed ground, break down walls, build up strength, stir up the waters of change, calm the fears of doubt and confusion, and delve into the most exciting time Christians and history has ever seen.
