“Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work” (Deuteronomy 5:13-14).
In spite of all the people I can thank for all sorts of stages in the production of a book, from helping me with research to paid editing to eagle-eye proofreading to amazingly talented cover design to savvy marketing and so forth, at the end of the day, writing is a very lonely job.
At the end of the day, it’s still what I think creatively in my head that I need to put coherently on paper, so to speak. Meeting writing deadlines is all on each individual author.
Thus, speaking for myself, I also do thank God for the gift of writing and the joy of writing. It is to Him I give all the glory.
Joyfully in Jesus,
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
“In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury” (Proverbs 14:23).
“The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him” (Proverbs 20:7).
“Children’s children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers” (Proverbs 17:6).
Happy Father’s Day 2019!
