Welcome, Hunters! I’m pleased to introduce Kathy Collard Miller. She has been writing a long time. Her first book was published in 1984 and now she’s up to 49 published books. Next Spring, her 50th book will be published. But her latest book is Partly Cloudy with Scattered Worries. You can glance at it here: http://amzn.to/18SUUHM. Don’t miss the book trailer at: http://bit.ly/1czUhKh
Kathy is also a popular women’s conference speaker who has spoken in 30 states and 7 foreign countries. Thankfully she loves to travel. And guess what she did once! And she stresses once: She sky dived! Yes! Jumped out of a plane—while it was flying! She had an exciting time. But once was enough.
To get to know Kathy a bit better, you can read a piece of Kathy’s heart here:
I Can’t Be Her Grief Savior
by Kathy Collard Miller
My father-in-law passed away at the age of ninety. My in-laws had been married for sixty-two years and in that time, my mother-in-law Audrey had only been alone overnight for fewer than twenty nights—total. So I was worried about Audrey’s loneliness. I began praying Psalm 146:9 for her: The LORD protects the strangers; He supports the fatherless and the widow; But He thwarts the way of the wicked.
Unexpectedly, I thought, I shouldn’t try to fill the place the Lord wants in her life. In my worry, I had begun to feel responsible to make sure she wasn’t lonely.
When I told my husband, Larry, about what the Lord had revealed to me, I quipped, “God doesn’t want me to be your mom’s grief savior.”
When I talked to Audrey later that day, she enthusiastically said, “Guess what Chuck Swindoll talked about on his radio program today?”
“Loneliness. It really ministered to me.”
I laughed. God had come through. I didn’t need to be in charge of making sure she wasn’t lonely. Of course, she’s going to be lonely—she’s alone for the first time in her life. We certainly are going to help her, but she should primarily look to God, not us. Otherwise, she’ll draw too close to us and not closer to God.
