My New Book

Dear Reader,

I just wanted to put what they call a 'teaser' out to you today.  I am writing my next book, which is on the topic of trusting God.  Many of us seem to have a problem with trust, I certainly did, but I am getting better every day.  This book will share the ways God has proven Himself to be true to me and possibly others.  There won't be anything fancy about the book, and I'm not sure how long it will be, or who the target audience is yet, all I know is that it is something God wants me to write, and yes, I trust Him.  He will tell me all the details later.  For now, I am to just write. 

Perhaps there will more teasers as time goes on.  Depending on comments, I'll see what I can do. Have a blessed weekend, dear Reader!

Here goes:

"He gave me a look and started to eat.  A smile came over my face as I sat there looking at him, and I said, "You know, Promise, one of these days you're going to trust me and give me a big fat kiss right on the face!"

Almost immediately I heard the voice of God inside me say, "You know, Deirdre, one of these days you're going to trust Me, and you're going to throw your arms around my neck and kiss me on the face!"

Wow!  All I could do was smile again, shake my head, and say, "I got it!"  And I did.  I heard the truth, which was to trust Him, and it did set me free."

  1. I love the beginning! Go with it. It's meant to be written. Just trust. :)

  2. Thank you, Linnea, it's an amazing story, and yes, it is meant to be written. I WILL trust! Have a blessed day!

  3. That's really strange--I left a comment before, but I don't think it got posted.
    I mentioned that that's one of the benefits of growing "old"--you can look back and see all the valleys you have traversed with God always there with you. It's going to be a WONDERFUL book!

  4. Thank you so much, Sandy! L&K

  5. Deirdre,
    I have faith that this book will be different from any others you have or may write in the future. It already has that mystery to it about faith and blind trust. One that you can show the world how it works. You have a special gift that allows you to write what you hear and set an example for the rest to follow.
    Thank You for leading us.

  6. Oh Rosemary, I am humbled by your comment! Thank you so much for the encouragement! God wants this written, and I am so blessed that He chose me for a time such as this. He will receive the glory! He has something for each of us, where only we can reach others. There are probably hundreds of books on Ireland, but yours will touch people that none of the others can! It is like that for all of us, if we can but trust Him and wait. He knows when we are ready more than we do. Blessings to you and yours! Deirdre

  7. Deirdre, I think this is a wonderful start to a successful book.You are following God's instructions to 'Tell His story' and I'm sure He'll be your 'ghost writer, using the Holy Spirit. With this type of help,and your faith, how can you possibly lose? I wish you great success with this new endeavor.

    Love Micki

  8. Thank you, Micki! Amen! L&K, Deirdre
