Change of scenery.
Ahhh…. my whole body relaxes.
This time it has been particularly cool so far. We started it with a parents’ retreat :-)
Dwight and I went to the lovely Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference on Sunday and came back yesterday. REtreat for Dwight = getting to hang out by himself, sleep, and read. Totally fit the needs he had for ‘relaxing’. Retreat for me = hanging out with other writers and chatting about imaginary friends. :-) Perfect.
I gleaned encouragement, inspiration, and much needed ‘like-mindedness’ among other CHRISTIAN authors. Words are sometimes useless in expressing my joy and gratitude for such an opportunity.
God brought amazing people into my life like Beth Vogt! And I had the opportunity to celebrate with Lisa Carter over her 3 book contract. Ramona Richards surprised me with an amazing gift – Krista Phillips DEBUT novel!!! Then there was amazing introductions with fabulous author Susan May Warren, who is just a wonderful person and wears great shoes :-)
I got to hug Alley Pals like Melissa Tagg – so sweet and felt a kinship with beautiful Marney McNall – wow, what a lovely person!
There were so many fantastic opportunities and divine appointments :-)
We’re headed on vacation with the family (my parents included). Lake Lure! Looking forward to some more opportunities to relaxand create.
Thank you, God!!!
