I’ve been writing since the mid-70s and here I am decades later still plugging away.
I started on a Royal typewriter that my parents gave me for a high school graduation present–so I’d be ready for college.
Today my college-age grandchildren receive feather-weight laptops. Oh how things have changed.
I went from the manual typewriter to an electric typewriter to a word processor to a clunky computer to the laptop I work on today.
Technology gets ahead of me and then just as I catch up, it takes another leap. And on it goes. This is probably true in your life too.
But as I reflect on the writing gift I’ve been blessed with I’m humbled and so grateful. I’ve been able to write and teach for a living–skinny as that ‘living’ was at times, to share my ideas, thoughts, and observations and enjoy a faithful readership over the years.
Thank you for being my readers, however much or little you’ve read of what I’ve laid down. Without you my career would have crashed! Because of you and the grace of God I am thriving even as I’m at 40+ years and counting.
“My purpose is to give you life in all its fullness.” (John 10:10)
P.S. What is your special gift? And how have you used it to bless others?
