Praising God

And now for something completely different, I needed to praise God this morning. Perhaps not for anything specific, at least not writing-related. But I don’t do it enough and this week has been hard, so I will thank God for helping me get through it without complaining or crying THAT much.

I still have my family, we have our jobs, our health and our home.

If I have to be a one-hit wonder, I will still write. Please, Lord. Help me to do your will and enjoy doing it. Amen.

    Amen! Good luck with everything. I'm sorry this has been a hard week for you. I'll send my prayers your way. 🙂

    Thanks! You won't believe me (okay, you might) but I've jettisoned the first 40-50 some-odd pages. You know, like they TELL you to do? The book starts on the eve of battle with the Yellow Turbans now. I've got a ton of backstory and foreshadowing to work in, but I suspect it's doable. I had always felt so strongly that I needed to start in the Peach Orchard where the original novel starts, but I couldn't keep the tension going. I've lost about six chapters and 10,000 words, but tension should not be a problem!
    By the way, that was the good, productive news from this week. It went downhill from there. Sigh.

    Lovely post.

    I'm sorry you've had a hard week, and your second paragraph says it all. Sometimes, we need to be grateful to God for the things we *do* have, which is so much more than others do.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you as you go through the rest of this week and into the weekend.

    I hope everything works out in the end. Sometimes we just have to trust that it does, even if we don't understand why.

    Hang in there, Victoria! You know what they say about turning lemons into lemonade.

    Girl! I hope things get better for you but I love your attitide. I'm always amazed how God shows up in the littlest ways to remind me he cares. Hugs.

    Thanks, Christina! I get the feeling He's still trying to get my attention. My thumb drive died Friday morning without my having done a backup in weeks.
