Although human praise for my novels and songs is wonderful to imagine, it can’t compare to God’s “Well done, good and faithful servant” when I reach that day and hour.

In the meanwhile, I rejoice in my belief that God has read my manuscripts numerous times and still gets a kick out of my offbeat sense of humor. I think He enjoys listening to my music, too, even when I feel like giving up on it.

He knows the strenghs and weaknesses of everything I create–better than I do, in fact–and yet He keeps blessing me with fresh ideas and permitting me to think of them as mine. Visit me at www.rogerbruner.com.
