First off, let me share how awesome church was this morning. I so enjoyed the message. It is true that there are only two teams in this world from which we have to choose. It is not like sports where you can have numerous favorite teams. You are either "Team Jesus" or "Team Satan". There is no in between. I sure hope you pick "Team Jesus". It is not always the most luxurious team to be on ... it is not always the most popular team to be on ... it is not always the easiest team to be on ... BUT it is the only team that wins!!!
Secondly, when I left church today, I stopped by to visit with family who I had not seen in quite some time. We talk on the telephone periodically but with our crazy schedules we simply do not have time to visit much. Sad, huh? I know but it is what it is. It was nice to see him, to get a hug, and just to say "I love you". I did not stay long, but it was not the length of the visit that mattered. It was the quality of the visit, and it was good.
Thirdly ... this is the best ... I had lunch with a lady who is going to join me as my Editor. I am so excited to see where this next leg of my writing journey leads me. I am so blessed to have this lady assisting me. Currently, she is going to re-read my book once again and make some suggested edits. I will then re-publish it. Nothing is going to change in the way of the story, but it will be more presentable and polished. I knew going into this project that I was not an English major but I also knew God had my back. While the two of us were chatting over lunch today, sharing how all of this came to be ... us meeting as we were ... we knew without a doubt that it was God-ordained. He is so wonderful!!!! As we chatted, I shared with her my idea for my next book. She is keeping all of this in prayer, and I know God is going to bless our efforts. I want nothing more than to use my writing ... His writing with me being used as a vessel ... to be His hands and feet. I want to be an encouragement to others. The Son has shined so brightly in my life over the years ... bringing me through so much to where I am today ... I just desire the same for others.
Lastly, I got to video chat with family in Florida. It all happened by accident, but it was good. I so enjoyed it, and I hope we will do it often. I say it was by accident, but I have a feeling it too was God-ordained. I have my own personal reasons for saying this, but I am just glad it occurred.
So, how was your day? I am going to chill for the remainder of the evening after I wrap up a few things. Today has been so productive that I just want to relish in the moment. I hope you have a wonderful evening.
