Praise the Lord with Hand flips and Cartwheels

Pearls and Dreams

Wow ..I'm in shock. Total shock. I have seen God work out some absolute miracles in the last 8 months of my life.

One of the things I had given up was getting my book published. No way was I going to do it in the condition my marriage was in. I gave that up, and over to God.

As I've posted before, God worked wonders.

Shortly after ... I got a call from the publisher ..we're still interested.

However, the harddrive with my book on it (not saved to disk) had crashed ... and ...oh my ... entering the book ... letter by letter?

Thanks to the help of my oldest son ... it got done this summer.

I sent it in.

I got the email on the first that I would hear from them within 2 weeks.

I got the email this afternoon.

It is a yes!

My devotional book Friday Fellowship will be published!!!

Don't know many other details than that!

I know the most important ...God is good!


  1. Congratulations on the publishing of your book!!
