Did You Know?….

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 22-09-2020


Did you know that when I was a sales manager for a company and making sales calls, especially to those companies that we did not serve but wanted their business…whatever the outcome of my call on them, I would write a memo, dressing it up in as much bs as possible without turning off my bosses. And that is part of the reason I wanted to write, just really feeling like I could. Then when the heart doctor said to me I believe we can add at least another 5 years to your life by having by-pass surgery I understood that my time on earth had it’s limitations. During my recovery I prayed that God would let me write….and paint…things that I had wanted to do and had never done and was not trained in either. I forgot to ask God to let me be good at it. That was in October, 1997. Thank you Lord….Thank you Doctor….I have written twelve novels and several short stories and have painted so many pictures and rocks that I cannot count. I don’t really know how many. I have a web site that I pay for and let people come and read some of those stories for free. I give away the painting to those that have asked for them, rocks and canvas, especially to people on my block, and some who came by our garage sales. No training except what I picked up here and there, so what God freely gave to me, I have tried to give to others. Mailing stuff cost so much money anymore that is hard for me to pay for sending stuff out. This morning I wanted to say that I was inspired by my writing sales memos to my bosses who were probably wondering “what the heck is this guy was so wordy about” and it kick started me to wanting to write. How about you? Has God inspired you to something? If he has I encourage you to first pray about it and if God gives you a go…..well, do it my friends…do it. Have a great day.
