A Writer’s Joy (Trina Cornell)

What a blessing for me to have had my dear friend Trina pen so many devotionals for me! Lord willing, I am on my way back from Vietnam, so prayers, please, for a safe flight!
Writing has always been a passion of mine - the advent of the iPhone has been such an amazing part of my daily regimen.  I have always considered myself a writer, but in recent years, I have not had the chance to do it as much as I would like.  For the past few summers, I have written as a guest blogger for my dear friend, Steve Hawley.  He has spent several summers working in overseas missions and has sought guest writers to maintain his wonderful blog while he is away.  I spent the first part of this past summer preparing some entries for him - and I ended up writing a week's worth of entries for the first time!  Writing them brought such joy to my life - they helped me revive my passion for writing in a tremendous way.  I spend a short portion of my gym time writing in the Notes section on my phone - a place I can store my writings and musings until publication.
When I write, I strive to put myself into my works - I share my experiences, my trials, my joys, and my sorrows.  Writing has been a cathartic practice for me as it allows me to get my ideas and thoughts down on paper, serving as my personal outlet.  
I write about topics about which I am passionate - things in my life that mean a great deal to me.  As I am sure many of you have noticed, that falls into three categories - my relationship with the Lord, my family, and Plexus.  These three topics are truly important aspects of my life - and in that order.  I am forever grateful to my Lord for all He has done for me - His mercies are new every morning, and I strive each day to live a life that glorifies Him.  My family is my rock - they built my foundation in Christ, they have been there for me through thick and thin, and continue to inspire and encourage me I all that I do.  
Please know - when you see me write - know that I speak from the heart - and all the glory goes to the Lord. 
God bless,
Luke 18:1
