It’s sometimes fun to overstate special moments in our lives, declaring them “the dream” or the greatest gift we’ve ever received. Obviously, as a Christian, the greatest gift is Christ—to be reconciled to God in and through Him. My wife is the second greatest gift, and my children are the third, collectively.1
But today, I have a greatest gift—a special moment that may well be the dream for every writer. Three words that are the three that every writer longs to say from the moment they start writing, well, anything:
It is finished.
I finally get to say those words today. Hurray! And soon, I’ll be able to tell you exactly what it was that I just finished.
But for now, I have another project to get done.
