Thanks for praying for me and my work. I want it to glorify God and make me proud, too. Last week I sent a proposal to an agent, and a manuscript to publisher. We'll wait (and wait, and wait) and see.

This weekend I'll be leading a workshop on Writing for Young Children at the Mid South Christian Writers Conference in Nashville, TN. I would appreciate your prayers for safe travels and for me to inspire and instruct in ways that glorify God.

God's Encouraging Words

"I say then: Walk n the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh."
Galatians 5:16 NKJV

I think most of us know what Paul meant by the "lust of the flesh." We seem to be born with that knowledge. The things that make ME happy. Sensual things, possessions, control, power, influence. Things that are all about ME.

But walking in the Spirit. That we have to learn. SLOWLY.

When we accept Christ His Holy Spirit comes to live inside us. But learning to walk with Him, to keep step with Him, to let Him hold my hand and guide me--well, that took me years. Bet you are the same way.
