Ripped from the pit of despair!

Bet you thought I'd disappeared from the planet, eh? hehe Nope. Just finally getting settled into my new home.

Most of you don't know this, but I was at the end of my rope. I was so depressed for so long that the very life was being sucked out of me. In fact, all I thought about was death. But God, in His grace and mercy delivered me from that pit about six months ago. The really kewl part is, it was before I received answers to my many desperate prayers. In other words, it wasn't BECAUSE He answered my prayers that I was jerked from that pit. It was only because of His grace and His mercy and His delivering power that I'm free. I'm going to write a book titled: When All I Thought About Was Death. It will be the hardest book I've ever written. It will speak of my eight year bout with bulimia, depression, a major church abuse that left me suicidal, controlling in-law abuse, an emotional affair, and much much more. This will be my first non-fiction story. And whether it ever goes to a publisher, I don't know. Only God does. But I know it will be therapeutic for me and others who read it.

Well, I finished my first round of revisions for The Bride Wore Coveralls. What an experience that was. Once I understood what to do and what was needed I had a blast making the changes. And my story is SO much stronger because of the reviewer's suggestions.

Hey, if any of you haven't read Deborah Raney's book, REMEMBER TO FORGET, well don't miss it. It was fabulous. I love stories where I almost become the heroine or hero and this one didn't disappoint in that area. This is one of those books that you can't put down. I know that sounds cliche, but hey, is there really a better way to say, I LOVED IT!!!!

I'm sorry to say, but I have to go now. So....

Until next time....

See ya~~~
