Exciting Day!

It has been quite an honor for me over the last few years of blogging that I have come to know (via blogland) published Christian authors. Today I have the privelege of sharing with you the announcement of "peace for the journey: in the pleasure of his company"... by Elaine Olsen

Please visit Elaine's Blog via the link above... preview the video... and order her book! I am sure you will be blessed! I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy of the book and also use it in our small group this fall!

Elaine... I am so proud of you. You have responded in faith, paitence and love to the Lord with your pen. He has blessed so many of us with your writings! I am so excited to share the news and am positive many, many, many more will be blessed by the gift so graciously lavished upon you from the Lord! 

Heavenely Father, I thank you today for beautiful Elaine. I thank You for moving her heart to respond to You in faith as she has journeyed with You to this milestone... I rejoice knowing that You will be glorified in the work she penned. I thank you that she continuted to perservere and respond to Your calling upon her heart even when the enemy would strive to snuff out the dream. You Lord stand victorious! Bless all who read Elaine's words... Bless Elaine in the days to come as I am sure they will be filled with so much activity surrounding the book and her family's move. Give her discernment, strength, courage and guidance... Praising You for bringing an Indiana girl and a North Carolina girl together in an unconventional way! It is to Your glory I ask Your blessings to all who read Elaine's book... in Jesus Mighty Name! AMEN!

On a side note... the first blog post I ever read of Elaine's was Loved Tied To A Tree Today I am thinking of how she and I are bound by God's love - tied to a tree!

Love you all!

Aren't you something! Why, yes you are!!! I have loved you from the moment we met over two years ago. Partly because you were the only one who bothered to stop by the blog in that season, and mostly because your heart is so big and so full of Jesus Christ. I love your tenacious approach regarding the kingdom of God living within you and your willingness to simply live the talk without restraint or apology!

You make me smile...

I love seeing all the wonderful people celebrating with Elaine, today. It is a thrill, isn't it!? So exciting to think of a whole host of others who will now experience the joys of her gifts as many of us have.


P.S. Love, love, love your new look! = )
