Divine Gift

"I am full-fed and yet I hunger.
What means this deeper hunger in my heart?"
~ Alfred Noyes

Back in the 90's I was asked to teach a ladies Bible study for four months. So I arranged to be away from my infant and toddler one morning a week and began presenting classes which dug into Scripture. Within three weeks, social attendees lost interest, while one serious student kept coming. Though I was saddened that others didn't share my passion for God's Word, it didn't bother me a bit to write lessons for just one person with an earnest desire to understand the Bible.

Blogging has been a wonderful way to connect with delightful people who love Jesus. My very favorite encounters are with those hungering to know Him more deeply. I'd do all this work for just one of them. It's been a privilege to meet many of them.

Wendy Paine Miller is one of those people. The beauty she expresses outwardly is the overflow of her soul's beauty. I'm blessed to have as a friend this intelligent lady who hungers to know God. I'm honored by her invitation to guest post on the topic of forgivenes. Please follow me to her site, "All in a Day's Thought," for today's post—
Divine Gift.


  1. I'm headed over. You two are both beautiful women. And Anne? I love your anecdote about the Bible study. That's so you ... to study the Word with just one. I love your gorgeous heart!

  2. Wendy ~ I love you too. Be praying about Indianapolis? And thank you, thank you, thank you for the honor to post on your blog today.

    Jennifer ~ Thank you. I belong to Him. An audience of thousands would be nice if He wills it someday. But really, I need only an audience of One.

  3. You are so awesome, love you sis.

  4. I love Wendy as well! And your passion for Christ rivals my own. It is a violent and insatiable love and hunger that dwells in me. I mean that in the best way. Passion for Christ is just the beginning.

  5. I found your site through Wendy's. I am looking forward to getting to know you a little better and to read your God-given words :)

  6. Denise ~ You're plenty awesome yourself. Keep on shining!

    T ~ After all the years of wondering if ANYone had passion for Christ (I didn't seem to meet them), meeting people like you and Wendy is a Godsend in the most literal and most blessed of ways I could possibly think.

    Lynda ~ I'm delighted to have met you! Thank you for following. I pray I don't disappoint. :D
