GOD’S BREEZE

Judy DuCharme

 

 

 

The breeze was key. Always the breeze. Without it, managing the walk proved difficult. I found walking in the heat and humidity a challenge. I love to walk and determined to get my exercise, and when hot and humid, I constantly asked the Lord for a breeze. He always brought it, sometimes in little spurts, sometimes rather strong, but mostly exactly right, enough to make the walk tolerable and most often so enjoyable.

 

 

 

As I age well beyond 50, that breeze is more and more necessary, and I’m thankful the Lord so faithfully provides it.

 

 

 

The Bible calls the Holy Spirit a wind, a breath. The Greek is pneuma, breath. Every day, as I walk through life, I need the breeze, the breath of the Holy Spirit, to guide me, make tough times tolerable, and all other times more enjoyable.

 

 

 

In writing, I need His breeze as well. His nudges are often like a little breeze and bring refreshment, direction, and ideas. When I was a little girl, I wanted to write. I wrote short stories in high school and poetry in college. I took a correspondence course on writing when my children were babies. Then life got busy and I didn’t think I could put myself in a room alone for hours a day to write. I was too social.

 

 

 

Then in my mid 50’s I felt the breeze, the nudge to write. It was a gentle breeze, light and airy, calling me. I made the assumption that the ideas that burst forth in my mind were a short story or even an article. I’d taught Bible Studies and had researched and put them together myself, of course at the leading of the Lord. This seemed similar but was a story. I began writing and found the story kept going and turned into a novel. However, I was clueless as to how to get a book published.

 

 

 

The best writing advice I ever received came from an established and well-known author: go to a writing conference. It was a breeze in the heat of not knowing which way to walk. I followed the breeze and attended the first of many conferences. Although my purpose was to improve and learn how to publish my novel (and discovered it was only half done), I was given the idea for my first book to be published. The Cheesehead Devotional, Kickoff Edition was published two years later. It was followed a few years later by The Cheesehead Devotional Hall of Fame Edition. These, of course, are devotionals for Green Bay Packer fans. In between those two editions, my futuristic novel, Society of the L.A.M.B., was published, followed by an inspirational cowboy romance novella, Run With the Wind, and a sweet short story, Christmas Ivy. Soon after came Blood Moon Redemption, a suspenseful novel. Each has won one award. Hall of Fame has won five awards while Blood Moon Redemption has won six, one of these a Selah – Third Place Mystery and Suspense.

 

 

 

My seventh book, Lainey of the Door Islands, is being published this summer by Ambassador International. I live in Door County, Wisconsin and in the past few years felt I should write a book about this beautiful place. One day, the breeze blew and I couldn’t stop writing.

 

 

 

So, all my books, awards, obtaining an agent, as well as retirement from teaching elementary school came after the age of 50. It’s been a lot of work while exhilarating as well. I don’t think I ever really foresaw this, but the breeze blew and I kept walking. So never choose to sit when you can walk. If you ask, He’ll send the breeze to keep you going, no matter what He’s breathing into you to do. Call out to Him whether it’s a daily walk on hot days, life in our troubled times, or your writing. He will provide the breeze to refresh you, guide you, and bless you. Finish the walk in His breezes.

 

 

 

Blurb for Lainey of the Door Islands

Walk with Lainey into the world of Door County and its islands in the late 1800s, a time of shipwrecks, lighthouses, and strong individuals who never gave up. Lainey becomes one of those rugged individuals as she faces tragedy and hardship. Her aunt and uncle, the lighthouse keepers on tiny Pilot Island, demonstrate the toughness needed to survive, but Lainey takes it a step further with her spunk and grace and becomes a shining light herself to all those around her. With humor, faith, close friendships and the young man who interferes with her ability to function, Lainey of the Door Islands will capture your heart, and she’ll inspire you to know that no matter what happens, God has a plan to prosper and not to harm.

Thank you for this post, Judy! I love the Holy Spirit's breeze -would that it would fill our nation!! Thank you for the encouragement for us over 50 writers! I ordered your Blood Moon Redemption book since I write suspense, etc. God bless you as you continue writing for Him! :)

Hi Amre. Thank you so much for stopping by and thanking Judy for her words of encouragement. Blood Moon Redemption caught my eye as well, but I haven't ordered it as yet.

Casey Andrews From Warner Robins, Georg At 7/18/2020 7:03:33 PM

My friend, Dena Hobbs, highly recommended this book for me and my granddaughter. I would love to be able to read this book. As a retired school teacher, I have always enjoyed books written for children the most. They have excellent stories without the garbage that is found in many books for adults.

Reply by: Patti Shene

Hi Casey. Thank you for stopping by. I have often thought about going back and revisiting some of those stories I enjoyed as a kid just for fun.

Mary Pat Johns From Victoria, TX At 7/18/2020 5:11:50 PM

I thoroughly enjoyed this devotional. Yes, the Holy Spirit breeze keeps me going too.

Hi Mary Pat. Thank you so much for stopping by and joining the discussion.

Kathy From colorado At 7/18/2020 5:07:28 PM

Hi Judi. I love the cover on this book1 It sounds like you have a sense of humor about your love of all things Packer, and I agree that a breeze is wonderful when you're out walking or when God brings inspiration for our writing. I write devotions for the Quiet Hour and other publications and that

Julie Grace From Missouri At 7/16/2020 3:07:41 PM

Thanks for the opportunity to enter to win a copy. The description sounds so good. I have found myself reading more Historical books lately. I love the combination of rich history with fiction.

Reply by: Patti Shene

Hi Julie. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment for Judy. I have always enjoyed historical, mainly 1800's, but my interest in WWII has been piqued lately.

Cleo Lampos From Illinois At 7/16/2020 11:41:13 AM

The cover is spectacular! I have visited Door County, so will be anxious to read this book. All of those of us who have taught school need to get together. We understand the importance of literacy, and transmitting history through literature. Thank you for writing such wonderful novels.

Hi Cleo. Thank you so much for stopping by and contributing to the conversation.

Vivian Furbay From Colorado Springs, CO At 7/16/2020 7:03:53 AM

I enjoyed your article and would like to read this book. As Christians we need the breath of the Holy Spirit daily.

Reply by: Patti Shene

Hi Vivian. Thank you for stopping by and contributing to the discussion. I agree, the breath of the Holy Spirit is vital in our lives!

Shari Hebert From Spencer Wisconsin At 7/15/2020 3:06:29 PM

I have been to Door County once for the weekend and I've lived in Wisconsin my whole life. It is absolutely breathtaking. The sights sounds and smells. Unfortunately I wasn't able to take in many of the quaint little shops or explore too far. From what I've read about your book I feel as if I'm thetheth

Reply by: Patti Shene

Hi Shari. Thank you so much for stopping by and contributing to the conversation. Wisconsin is one state I have not had the opportunity to visit.

Becky M Van Vleet From CO At 7/15/2020 10:41:37 AM

Judy, honestly, I felt a breeze just reading your refreshing blog. Thank you for this inspiration. My husband, children, and I were in Door County about 30 years ago. I remember it being so pretty!

Reply by: Patti Shene

Hi Becky. Thank you for stopping by and sharing with us.

Peg Wimer From Macon GA At 7/15/2020 10:09:24 AM

Looks like a lovely book, and I enjoyed your discourse on writing after 50. It reminds me of a hymn I love, "Breathe on me breath of God."

Reply by: Patti Shene

Hi Peg. That hymn ran through my mind as I prepared Judy's post. Thank you for stopping by and sharing with us.

Sharon Carroll From Bonaire, GA At 7/15/2020 10:06:51 AM
