Good morning. It's been a hot July full of fires in Colorado. Wonderful rain arrived and with it flash flood warnings. The burned soil was compromised because it no longer held roots.
Sometimes, I wonder is it possible for a writer to over kill in trying so hard to be perfect? So much so that the"life" is drained out of their stories? Writers that love the Lord often come to the falls and pray as they relax. They also praise and ask God for the perfect timing for their work to go forward. They find as they become refreshed that they have to make changes and wait a little longer. It's hard to obey sometimes isn't it? But they do want their work to glorify their King.
I'm reminded of something my sweet French/Indian grandmother told me once as we dressed for church one fine Sunday morning. "We dress up, not because we are proud my dear, we dress in our best because we are approaching the throne." I never forgot that. It's a sign of respect as is obedience in waiting.
How do we know? This perfect timing thing? I often don't folks. I believe it's a trust issue with the Creator of the Universe. He created the story didn't He?
I want to post the cover of my second novel, Lady Outfitter. I'm so excited as I wait for just the perfect time to release this book. Thank you Father for adding the perfect "music notes" to this story so it sings to the world.
I'll post a little about the book in a short while. In the meantime, be blessed as we move into August.
