You Want Me to Talk!?

~~Okay, I asked for it, but preparing to do a presentation is different than writing. ; ) I'm speaking at my church on Sunday March 21 about An Easter Walk. The program will also include how to make Bible reading more fulfilling. It's the very process that created my Easter devotions to begin with.
~~I started this as a challenge from my pastor Steve Davis. He challenged us to prepare for Easter and Lent for as long as we prepared for Christmas and Advent. My answer to the challenge was to read all the scriptures about Holy Week. As I read, I began to slow down and really respond to the words. Writing my responses became short devotions. I then researched the traditions of Lent and found the length of forty days. I had no clue if I would find forty topics to write about. Guess what? I did. As I wrote, I realized I was being led to share the devotions with others. And that's how An Easter Walk came to be written and published.
~~I'm currently writing a companion volume, A Christmas Walk. I need twenty-nine devotions for a full-length Advent season plus Christmas Day. At the moment, I have no clue what will be in the last four or five. Somehow I think the source of the forty Easter devotions will provide. Isn't God good?
