Giving Many Thanks, Giving Much Praise

A little over a week ago, this unexpected envelope arrived in the mailbox.

I had this moment of confusion.  Did I order something I’d forgotten about?001

I had a moment of Christmas morning excitement, wondering: What’s in the package?

Inside, was indeed a gift.

A copy of my own book dropped into my hands with a letter from my publisher.

My own book?  Why?

Then I read those words and gave praise…..Three months after that initial publication, they had done a second printing.

God sure can surprise you with joy  on the most average of average days when you’re just going about the day-to-day routine and then suddenly grace arrives in your mailbox!

So, many thanks to you, my friends, for reading, for buying the book, for the positive reviews on Amazon.com, for spreading the word, for sharing the book with others and studying it in Sunday School classes and small groups at your church.  You bless me so.ephesians3-20

And all praise, honor, and glory to God, who is surely able to do more than all we can ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20-21).

Thanks so much to the Women’s Bible Cafe, who chose Ask Me Anything, Lord as the March nonfiction book of the month for their WBC Book Club!  If you are on Facebook, you can join me for a fun author’s chat on Friday, March 28th at 9:00 p.m. Eastern DST (8 p.m Central, 6 p.m. Pacific).  You just need to like their page on Facebook and log in on that day and time to participate!  I hope you’ll join in.  I would be so blessed to chat with you!

Many thanks also to Reedswood Christian Church in Gloucester, Virginia, for inviting me to speak at their women’s tea on Saturday, May 3rd at noon.   Please keep me in your prayers as I share!  I’ll have books on hand that day to sign and sell.

As always, thank you, dear friends, for your encouragement.  Thank you for your prayers.

All glory to Him!
