I suspect I will not be getting blogs out this week. I intend to enjoy my sister and the left coast to the fullest. However, you do not need to be without my daily dose of inspiration! Did I ever tell you I write books????
I received a letter last week from a sweet woman who battled cancer many years ago, and is now battling it again. She told me she wished she'd had my book twenty years ago when she had breast cancer. And now, as she faces a new cancer, she thanked me for the good laugh my book provided her. Laughter is great medicine, she added.
She is right. And I am grateful for her kind words because I wrote the book hoping it would be a real help for people facing all kinds of adversity.
You can purchase that book HERE to tide you over till I return from Seattle. If you want a fun, zany, but faith-filled series chock full of animals, God, and underdogs, you could try my new Unlikely Friends series. You can click HERE for the first book. Book 3 is in edit, due out very soon, and Book 4 has been started!
My ticket says "TSA/PreCheck". That means I don't have to stand in the long line of all those people checking in to the airport security who have to empty all their possessions and take off their shoes. I did nothing to earn this, nor did I pay for this privilege.
I get to go in the short, quick line that those in authority have given a safe pass. How much this reminds me of what happens when we put our faith in Jesus. We can not earn or pay for God's favor or forgiveness of our sins. We must only accept the free pass He offers. We are pre-approved to pass through death into eternal life with God because Jesus paid the penalty for our sins through His atoning sacrifice on the cross. We are no longer condemned in our sin, but sail right to God's side through His checkpoint with no hassle, forgiven and free.
Bon voyage and God Bless you all.
