publisher heaves a sigh of relief

The files are uploaded at last to the printer! And I'm only about five minutes from collapse. The beauty of timing!

Seriously, there has been some beautiful timing in all of this. As you may know, I'm a week late getting my book Heart to Heart: Meeting With God in the Lord's Prayer out. I was definitely stressing about this earlier. Then today, my first "celebrity" endorsement came, via post, from Scotland. The letter, from bestselling author Michael Phillips, was very gracious and a tremendous blessing in more ways than one. But the timing was particularly special as it allowed me to include a blurb on the front cover without paying revision fees to the printer.

God is good and His timing is always best.

My computer's a little slow today, so while I was waiting for the enormous cover file to upload, I went over some of the other projects in the works. Edit and release the temporarily-titled Tales of the Hopelessly Homeschooled, edit my latest work of fiction, Angel in the Woods, write my contribution to The Romany Epistles. So much to do... I love it.

Your posts on this keep popping up in my searches on Lord's prayer. It looks interesting. I follow Lord's prayer feeds because of an interest in 'Lord's prayer spirituality' which I tend to blog about here. It stems from the book Praying the Pattern.

Speaking of which, I wonder whether you would like to swap a copy of Heart to Heart for one of Praying the pattern? If so, there are email address cues on the linked pages.

Wow...how do you do it all?? I love to write and I've always been fairly good at it, but who has time? You, obviously! ;-) But you're an encouragement to me that it IS possible. I'm content for now though....writing is a gift and desire that the Lord will put to use at the right time. Right now I'm too busy trying to get things in the right order at home, and throwing myself into knowing Him. Good investments, if you ask me!
Joyfully,
Stacy
