This year Thanksgiving may have a different meaning for many people in the USA. Thousands have lost their homes in fires and floods or to foreclosure. Thousands have been laid off and are desperately seeking for new job opportunities. Others may have lost a loved one or are standing around one who is seriously ill. Whatever the case, I am sure they will celebrate Thanksgiving the best they can. Thanksgiving doesn't disappear because things are difficult or different from last year. It will make us re-focus and find new things to be grateful for. It will bring us closer to God who will provide all our needs. The Bible teaches us in Philippians 4:11-13, I have learned to be satisfied with what I have. I know what it is to be in need and what it is to have more than enough. I have learned this secret, so that anywhere, at any time, I am content, whether I am full or hungry, whether I have too much or too little. I have the strength to face all conditions by the power that Christ gives me.

A story about a child's love for his Father
Breath of Life is more than a story about the womb process, it is more than a cry for life, it is the journey of spirit, soul, and body as they come together as one. It is a story about a child's love for his Father.
"I am getting a little emotional over this heart and soul thing. Becoming a living soul means being able to walk and wonder, to live and let go, to meet and move on. All of a sudden I feel so complete. My Creator has given me a heart and awakened my soul. He is the one who will know me like no one else ever will. Ever! I am running over with gratefulness and exitement. He truly loves me more than I ever imagined. What I am saying is, I am sure He always loved me, but now that I am receiving a body, I can actually love Him back! I can love Him with all of my heart and with all of my soul. Yes, with all of my being!"

The art of living
The little boy in my newest book Breath of Life is excited about his life, he just keeps on talking, trying to get the reader's attention ... "Listen, I am kind of inspired by David. What a great poet. Like I told you before, I am sure we have things in common. Well, for one thing, it must be the art of living."
And you know what? This little guy inspires me, everytime I read his musings. I believe there is such a thing as the art of living. We don't merely exist, we are, like God is! God wants us to value life, because He values it! Jesus said in John 14;19, because I live, you also will live. Jesus gave up His life so we could have a life in all its fullness! Now that is what I call an inspiring thought and it resulted in this new book! Let me ask you: Is His breath of life renewing you, your energy, and your excitement each new day, or do you merely exist? Have you ever tried to see yourself through the eyes of your Creator? What did He have in mind when He made you, when He got you ready to enter the world as you know it?
Take this journey with me and be inspired!
