There was a nice surprise in the mailbox this afternoon. No, not money, although that shows up unexpectedly sometimes too. Today I found a copy of a small devotional book sent from Briercrest, the college I attended a long time ago. Last year they had contacted me, as an alumni, to see if I would consider contributing a short meditation for the book which would be later given to current students.
Today the little book arrived... with my piece in it. A small step perhaps, but for me it's meaningful. Because, ever since I came back from the writing conference in Red Deer with Don and Jon Nori of Destiny Image, I've been feeling like I'm standing on the edge of something new. And if I don't spread my tiny wings and start to fly, I have the feeling that God himself may push me out of the comfort of my little nest!
There is a version of it available here if you are interested in reading further.
Wishing you a beautiful day,
