Hi I am back.
I had to completely give up everything extra in my life if I wanted to meet my deadline and finish a 90,000 word novel by the end of May. It has had its first edit and is 80 pages short of being ready for its last. I hope to have it self published by the middle of June. What an experience.
“Return to Erieau” is a Christian book about a young woman and man who have to make a lot of decisions, and learn how to forgive themselves and others and turn everything over to God. I use real life experiences and devotions that I wrote from my past to write this book. A lot of healing takes place in the people in the book, as well as the author as she writes it.
I went and turned into “Chef Phoebe Fox” the Clown last night and entertained over 130 mothers, grandmothers, and daughters. It felt so good to bring laughter to so many people. I know this was my best performance yet.
I did not have to have the procedure in London because I stopped bleeding. Thank You for your prayers.
I see the surgeon next week and will be put on a waiting list for a knee replacement. I know when my knee is better, I will be able to walk and exercise more.
I gave up being the women’s leader and had my last meeting on Friday.
I am walking beside my best friend as she watches her mother die of Lou Geris Disease. It has been a painful walk. Her mother went from being a healthy woman last summer and now has a hard time speaking and is in a wheelchair.
God gave me the words below to share with my friend. I was able to use them in my novel to bring comfort to my main caricature. Read below.
From “Return to Erieau”
(Amelia wipes a few tears from her eyes then places the writing beside the rose. She looks around her new room. It is hard to believe that my Aunt Stella has been dead for three months.
The last time I went to a funeral with her, Stella said,
‘What is wrong with dying?’
One foot is still with earthly affliction
While the other foot is stepping into everlasting Glory
With God and Jesus”)
Now you know where I have been.
I never ever forgot my friends in Sparks
I am back but will still have to limit the time I give to Sparks.
