not easy

Hope in the Middle releases tomorrow!

We’re less than 24 hours from release day!

So I thought I’d give you a little peak into how this writing process has gone.

1-I’m on my fourth order of books. Set 1 was sad and worthy of lots of corrections. Set 2 was much better. Set 3 arrived with about 6 errors. And set 4 will be the one you receive.

Am I confident it’s without error this time? No. But I believe you are people of grace.=)

2-My computer died about 5 weeks ago. After a slight panic, I remembered that I had emailed the document to myself a few days before. Thank goodness!

Why am I telling you all this? Because it’s not been easy. And it reminds me that God is gracious. And here we are…a day away…and it’s done. Grace.

And just maybe God, in His grace, will somehow use these words. To pour hope into all of us…tired Moms, discouraged spouses, lonely friends.

 “So that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” (Titus 2:7)

Trusting cross grace never ends. Thanks for your love and support!

“Hope was wrapped in rags for me. Hope was laid in a feeding trough for me. Pain came before birth. Before Jesus uttered his first cry, Mary hurt. She labored to bring the Son of God into this dying world. There was pain before hope. There was darkness before light. There was a manger before the miracle. There was a cross before Easter Sunday. No matter how twisted or pointless life may seem, God is fulfilling His mission–for us and in us.”
