There can be miracles, when you believe.

Relief is spelled this way...completed book proposal.

I was up until around 1:30am this morning trying to get it finished. I still can't believe that this afternoon I was able to hit the send button on my computer, shipping over 11,000 words to editors at two publishing houses.

I had no idea how much work went into a book proposal. Before this year, I had no idea what in the world a book proposal even was.

But the Lord has been nudging me for some time in this direction. It is in His hands and I am just grateful that I have been obedient and completed the task.

For now, He has required that I complete a book proposal. I can go to bed tonight knowing that I have been faithful.

Hi Joanne! I haven't had the chance to do much reading tonight, but have been thinking about you every time I come on the computer lately-- I'm having withdrawls from your encouraging little blog here!

Anyways, I just wanted to just stop by and say HI! Thanks for the sweet comment (wishing me restful nights, in response to the whole toddler bed saga)!

You are such a blessing. The words you wrote me after my husbands shooting are in my prayer notebook, I've re-read them so many times. I also shared them with my Uncle who was going through rough times. Thank you again for that encouragement.

Hope you are doing well. *hugs*
