Happy Friday, dear readers. I love looking forward to sleeping in and having coffee on Saturdays and doing whatever else without paying attention to the schedule. Although I must confess a perfect Saturday for me means several hours of writing as it remains my favorite thing to do.
Several things made me smile this week:
*all of your wonderful comments, which really helped me over my first publishing bump. Bless you all! This was a timely reminder of the power we have to help each other by a kind word or two. My editor called this week and said that it takes three positive comments to make up for one negative one! I'm a believer as you did that for me!
*received word that I'll see the cover for Courting Morrow Little in about a month! Revell's amazing art director asked for dress ideas for Morrow so I was able to send the designer some pictures of actual 18th-century gowns. She also asked what type of hair style Morrow has. It's a simple chignon which is an elegant bun worn at the nape of the neck. Although this French word didn't come into usage until 1783, and Morrow's story is a bit before that, I'm going to go with it:)
*felt God's faithfulness as a writing assignment I'd struggled with for several months came together and was accepted! Only He could have managed that.
*realized that the new wrinkles I'm seeing are moving me closer to eternity and not just 50:)
How have you felt God's faithfulness to you this week? Any unexpected blessings? Even a simple one?
