When I made the decision to finally publish one of my manuscripts, my family asked the usual questions, beginning with the most important…”why?”.
I must confess, my life didn’t start out as a fairy tale romance, but God created something beautiful out of the ashes. I know there are many who can say, “amen” to that sentiment, when they look at their own stories.
The heart of my writing will always be an offering of praise. I am thankful for the miracles I have witnessed, and it cost me nothing to share the story with those who are still waiting for answers to their special prayers.
As I look at this picture of my marine husband, I can’t help but remember the year our military were involved in Operation Desert Storm. My husband and two sons were all in uniform, and for a short time, they were all overseas.
Back at home, our youngest son struggled with anger, and probably fear, over what the future might hold. During that time of typical teenage rebellion, he was involved in an auto accident. To be exact, it was a head-on collision, in the middle of a storm and a busy intersection. But during that terrible time, God protected my family and brought them all home.
My message will always be…don’t give up on those you love, and more important, don’t give up on God.
