A Christian family saga of how God answers a patriarch’s prayer and provides a means for multiple generations of one family to choose Him, and home.
Meet Patrick Blau
Sure I’d always thought about writing a book years gone by. Thought about it from time to time, but it never became important enough for me to actually sit down and begin. In 2015 my father gave me my inheritance, a pocket watch, which had been passed down from youngest son to youngest son through five generations. Three years later in 2018 my father passed away, and on a whim one day I opened the watch and found an old photograph cut and pressed into the back cover. The watch had stopped ticking at some time in the past, showing a time of just after noon. Or midnight, depending on how you looked at it. A pocketwatch database website yielded even more details on my inheritance, and the details that I found surrounding its existence, and the existences of the men who had kept it before me, finally gave me the drive and ambition to write a book. “Keeping The Watch” will end up being the first of my books that I’ll write. One day God will give me the drive and ambition to do it again. That’s how I write, and I think it’s worked rather well. And I’m sure my Dad would agree.
