I found it

While looking for some photos to display on Saturday at my brother's funeral lunch, my "book" was found.

I have been looking for it for years and now it has found me!

When I wrote it, I was using a typewriter. Do you remember what a typewriter is? There are a lot of "typos" which will be corrected when I transfer it all to the computer. I had written about 50 pages which is less than one third of what I think the finished product will be. It is based on my Grandfather's life and the story he wrote about growing up in the 1800's in the Plains states.

I am enjoying reading it. I think it might make a good children's book. We'll see.

I think God helped me find it just when I needed it. The idea of my brother's death and burial has not been easy. We fought a lot but I loved him very much. I have very conflicted feelings about him. I have written about that in prior Blogs.

Looking through old photos of us when we were children and finding my "book" has lifted my spirits more than I could have imagined. I now feel I can face Saturday's services.

Even though I often forget it, God is in control. He makes things happen in His time not in ours. Why is that so hard for me to remember?


  1. I'm so glad that you found the book. I know that this will encourage you to start working on getting it out there for others to read.

    I'm so glad that God made a way for you to find comfort and peace. Thinking of you as you honor your brother in his memorial service.

  2. I can't believe you found the book, Susan! That is wonderful. I think you are right -- God gave you a gift just when you needed it. Love to you, friend!

  3. I'm so glad you found it! Sounds like the start of something wonderful!
