My family and I have been at the beach for five days. It's been a wonderful time away from the normal routine, but today we're heading home. I love the ocean and always feel so connected to God when I view his majestic waters. He is an awesome God!
My hubby thinks I must have some dolphin genes because I stay in the water for hours at a time. Usually, I'm thinking up new story ideas. There's something about swimming in the salt water that frees my creative side. Plus, it's so much fun!
My second book, SCARED TO DEATH, a Love Inspired Suspense by Steeple Hill, will be in bookstores on August 8th. I'm getting excited about seeing it on the shelves. When my first book came out, I stood in the aisle of the supermarket and just stared at the cover. I wanted to grab the other people walking by and tell them my good news. I also wanted to jump up and down and scream for joy! But that wouldn't have been a good thing to do in Kroger. The manager would have escorted me outside and told me never to come back. :) So I remained composed. I also told God how grateful I was that my dream had come true.
Now that I've sold three books, I have expanded my dream and have more goals to accomplish with His help. There's always something new on the horizon and that makes life interesting.
My goal today is to pack and drive home. I'm ready to get back to work. I want to develop the story ideas that came to me while I was frolicking in the ocean and start writing book four. That's exciting!
I hope you're following your dreams. And I hope they'll soon come true! I'll be praying for you . . . remember me in your prayers as well.
And if you have time, stop by the Steeple Hill chat room at eHarlequin.com. I'm online there all this week, and I'd love to have you say hello!
Wishing you abundant blessings and praying that the work of your hands bears good fruit!
