Shades of Morning ... DONE!

Hi Friends,

Just doing the happy dance here because my next "Love Stories with a Twist!" was due in to the publisher today and I just sent it in via email. Whoo Hoo! The title so far is "Shades of Morning," and it due to hit the shelves next May. Between now and then it will go through edits, more edits, copy edits, galley edits, proofreading, and more read-throughs. Then, printing, cover design, blah blah blah. Lots yet to do, but I'm celebrating now that the main writing is done.

Here's hoping my new editor loves it. Bryan says it's my best yet, so we'll see. It's certainly my most fun story. :-) But I tell ya, it's some kind of miracle that this book got written at all, what with pregnancy, new baby, kidney stone surgeries, homeschooling, business running, and a zillion other things. So, yay God!

So, no other interesting thoughts this week (as my brain is fried), except to share with you the theme of Shades of Morning so you ponder it for your own life. So, here ya go:

God's gifts to us come in packages we often don't expect, don't like, and don't want. But they're gifts all the same. God wants to heal us, make us whole, and often those ugly gifts are the very tools He uses for our healing ... if only we let Him.

ha! I can totally hear your voice saying..."printing, cover design, blah blah blah."

I'm excited to read this one to see how those conversations at Mt. Hermon look in the finished product.

And many congrats on your Christy award! (and best wishes that your kidney stones will be completely done away with this time around!)
