What joy it has been to travel with you through God’s blessings for the past 11 months. My love for God and for people has grown as I have daily journaled from the entries that have arrived fresh to my in-box each morning from His Story. Your comments to me sharing how certain entries have personally blessed you have been an encouragement and increase my awareness of how we are blessed to be a blessing. As we will read in December, the best part of living out God’s Story is yet to come!
If The Blessing Book has blessed you this year, even if you would not like to order the print book, would you consider taking a moment to review it on either Amazon or CreateSpace? A few quick lines about what made it special for you might help others.
What we began together on January 1, 2014 with the web-site, actually started much earlier. Five years ago, while reading my Bible chronologically, verses about blessings started to catch my eye in fresh ways and I sensed then that God wanted me to somehow share these blessings. I began jotting them down in my notebook, that led to making a list on my computer, then one day I wondered if there were at least 365 blessings throughout God’s Story (there are even more than that!) It has been an interesting growing experience to work through all of the details from arranging the entries, choosing translations for each, giving unique titles to them, and adding bits of my life experience as I felt it helped others to see God’s goodness in our generation.
I’m so happy to soon be able to hold my own printed copy! I love to read with a pen and circle and underline and place stars in places that are special. Looking back on dated notes jotted in my devotionals helps me to remember ways God has blessed me on certain days and it increases my trust. I don’t know why God chose me to do this book, but I’m glad He did and I’m thrilled to be able to offer it to you.
May the Lord bless his people with peace and happiness and let them celebrate. PS 64:10 CEV
