The last eighteen months:
We've all been enduring difficulties the past year and a half. There isn't anyone who hasn't been affected by COVID, in one way or another. Maybe we suffered illness, lost a loved one, or know someone who has. There have been job losses, lost livelihoods/closed businesses that will never come back, children who have missed out on eighteen months of social and personal development; there is fear, concern, worry about the future, and on and on. We all live the uncertainty surrounding us daily but there is still occasion for hope and optimism.
A Long Time in the Making
At long last, I am pleased to announce, this Saturday, August 28, the release of the second book in the Heaven Heals Series will occur. It has seen its share of snags and setbacks but it is finally on track to launch this week!
I invite you to join me in the online event, hosted by April Giauque's Beacon of Light Podcast, for a big dose of hope & healing, with books and prizes of music, original artwork, and other giveaways. Couldn't we all use more feel-good moments and opportunities for celebration?
I am grateful to friends and fellow authors, April, Lori Thompson, Anita McLaurin, Crissy Maier, and Jean Voice Dart, who all have their own messages of optimism & overcoming, for offering contributions to the event, which will enhance all the hoping and healing coming around these days! God knows we need it!
He is our Source of lasting hope & healing
"In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust... For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore, for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me. O love the Lord, all ye his saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer. Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord," Psalm 31:1, 3, 24-25.
God guarantees so many promises, if we just believe and commit to follow him. Heaven Heals details our foundation for hope and healing, and I think my story of finding hope in the reunion with my lost loved one will help heaven assist you in finding your own hope, too. We can always gain hope when we look to the Lord, no matter the circumstances in which we find ourselves.
I thank you for all your support in reading my emails and accompanying me on our journeys of joy and success. God bless and keep you in his care -- especially, now -- but always and forever!
