The passing of winter into spring is wonderful. Springtime is a season of expectancy. I love smelling the freshly cut grass and seeing the blooming flowers life. The blue skies and sunshine makes me want to be outside all that I can.
It feels as if springtime in my life with the publication of It Takes More Than Legs To Stand has brought a flurry of new activity. Joy filled my heart when I received my first shipment of my book. Being able to go over to Vancouver to see my friend Marion Duckworth and give her a copy of the book she spent many years helping me write felt like the culmination of our journey together. My friends at Rock Creek community have been waiting for my book to come out for a long. So Sunday, I had the opportunity to share about It Takes More Than Legs to Stand followed by a book signing. In the afternoon a good friend had a booksigning at her house.
I was reminded at a Faith and Culture writers meeting, by Author Mesu Andrews that no one’s life is constantly surrounded by blues skies. She had been a busy mother who also enjoyed traveling and ministering to women, until an illness left her bedridden. During that time, God began to show her ways she could continue to draw women closer to God through writing. She began her writing career by writing Bible Studies but shortly discovered the joy of writing Biblical fiction. Although she no longer travelers as much as she once did, she reaches more people through her writing.
Besides all that good friends took me out for a birthday lunch, which was followed a bit too closely with dinner with my family.
It was a wonderful week. I couldn’t get into the groove the next week though. Nothing was wrong, but nothing seemed quite right. I wanted to write about all my blessings of the previous week but I couldn’t. Finally I realized I was just tired. I was fine after I caught up on my rest. have written for every high in life, there
What season is your life in? If it’s winter and you’re struggling faithfully work toward your goal. If you feel a little off kilter remember the words of Larry Crabb and Karl Townsend, “For every high and low in life, a corresponding emotion will follow.”
