The Book Has been Published!
Hello My friends and Family,
I am so excited to tell you “A New Song” Has finally Been published!!!
I am not sure where to start. When I was asked to contribute to this book, I became excited at the opportunity to share my story, God’s story! But as I actually sat down to write it, I became afraid, that I would not be able to convey the message properly and that I could disappoint those who may be expecting me to write a masterpiece. I am presently struggling with some books that I also am writing. I am sure God is using this opportunity as a push. He is telling me to just do it, while using this opportunity to boost my confidence too. I know God wants me to share this story in any way that I can. He is opening new doors daily, not just for me but for you as well. We just need to walk through them – even if at times we have to crawl through. Whatever it takes for us to move forward, keep growing, and to help others do the same.
Any ways! Here is a note from the main editor, with the book Poster below.
I just heard from our printer about the book’s final price for 192 pages with contributions from 53 authors, 17 photographers/artists, and a beautiful color cover with semi-exposed Wire-0 binding that allows the book to open flat.
If we order 500– the cost will be $15/book
If we order 1,000 — the cost will be $13/book
So far, I have received orders for 237. Please let me know how many you plan to order so that I can get the best price.
I’m so happy that is is finally here!! There are so many awesome stories besiides mine in this book. It is a great Testament of God’s work!!! Please check it out for yourself! Email Diane or call her and place your order. I don’t thing it is selling online anywhere.. 😦
I can’t wait to share my story with you all!! I love you, and God Loves you too!!
Talk about an adrenalin rush!! I just cleaned out my office ( for the most part) in under an hour!!! Along with unpacking 3 boxes, dishes, sweeping, and watching an hour show!! I got more done in this hour then I have had time to do in weeks!!! Do you have times like these too? It is so amazing how much you can done when you work like that. Yet it happens; I moved so fast. I felt like the woman from “No Ordinary Family” with her super speed!! Seriously, WOW! If I had a before and after picture of that room you would be amazed.
It seemed like; Every time I started working on just that room, something would always come up… Good thing, my aunt and uncle surprised me and are coming in the morning!! They will be the first relatives to see my house besides my baby sister, and my parents since I moved in… I though I had more time like til the end of the month when my Nanna and Baca (grandma n’ grandpa) are coming; and soon after my boyfriend early October . Good thing I started doing the other chores yesterday and this morning. My house has not been so clean since my sister visited. It is not hard to clean but I was pet sitting and and not putting things away, not folding, kind of adds up ;p
I am glad they are coming. I meant to sleep but didn’t wanna leave the main stuff for morning.. Now I just have lil things to do… shower, and clear off dining room table, and hopefully finish folding the clean cloths ( in 3 garbage bags…) That is the chore I hate most! folding, boo! I don’t have a dryer, it is in the lease that the washer and dryer belong to the land lord. Even if I could get one I can’t afford one, so thankfully I can wash my stuff at my beloved parents house not to far from here. God is so Good!
In the last 8 months I have really leaned to treasure the little things, the pleasure of a shower, a cozy bed to sleep in at night, a vehicle to get around, doctors, pots n’n pans, dishes, silverware, hot water, soap, loved ones, a helping hand, patience, joy, health, food, internet, a phone! Praise God I have them! After living out of a suitcase for 5 months travling back and forth from family homes, it is so nice to have a place to be proud of, a place God has blessed me with to keep me safe, and where I can share my time with people who are important to me!!
I had this whole other blog I was gonna write, but it will have to wait till latter, sleep has finally come and now I am saying good night! God bless you, and take time to remember and treasure the people and little thing in your life that are important.
Never Forget 9-11
Love is about, having troubles and being able to get by them, having patience with each-other, working as a team, and knowing the other person has your back in times of trouble.
\ 9/11 AMERICA \
/ \ NEVER FORGET!!! ….
Eever since I moved here to the valley, I had Paslms 23 in my mind. especially Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: For thou art with me; ~ I kept asking God… Please explain it so I can understand.. He did. I am not in the valley of death but in the shadow of it, so I can see the bad all around, but am protected. We are always surrounded by good and bad… The bad out ways the good at times like the Horrid day of 9-11… It can blind us tricking our minds that there is no good out there… Yet God is always with us..
