30 Day Writing Challenge |Day 3

I can’t tell you why her blessing meant so much to me.

Hearing those words; it’s as though I were under an afternoon shower in the very midst of driest summer. I just stood there – eyes closed, head down, holding the phone to my ear as I soaked in the warmth of her blessing. For a short while after the call… I cried.

Tears streamed down and it dawned on me just how much in need of heaven’s favour I was.

More than money.” I said.

I desperately need your blessing more than anything.

My material mind reels in incredulity now that I think about it. But it’s true. More than anything else this world felt it had to offer.

I don’t know why. She was a veritable stranger. How can I explain it other than somehow it wasn’t enough that I ask, it was good that others too asked on my behalf. The thought of another’s voice carrying up the same request to the skies… it strengthened.


30 Day Book Challenge |29

A book that everyone hated, but that you liked.

– Again, not a book but a genre. Christian books; not inspirational, not motivational. Christian.  I rarely come across people who read and genuinely enjoy non-fiction Christian literature.

Honestly it would never have occurred to me to read them either if a friend had not only recommended but also handed me a copy. So I suppose it’s not so much a case of hate as it is unaware.

Cue time for me to pay it forward?
