A Gift from Dad
Currently my Creative Prayers book is with an editor. It has been nearly 3 months since I mailed it in so I don’t have much hope that it will get picked up. Today during my prayer time I was just sort of talking to God about the book and my heart. I was praying that it would make my heart glad for it to be published. I said that I knew that was a silly reason to pray for something, and I did want what God wanted not what I wanted, but it would just make me smile to know that God was listening to me.
Well, I didn’t hear from the publisher, but tonight when I got home from church I got an email about another writing opportunity. It was like a little gift from God because He knew it would make me smile. I think about how much I love giving Nathan gifts that I know he will like. I love to watch his eyes light up and to hear the excitement in his voice. Today I feel like God did the same thing for me. He gave me a small gift to let me know he was listening.
It was a good day.
