I'm bubbling over with excitement because a big carton of books - all with my name on it - arrived just yesterday. Through Every Storm is in and available--and ahead of schedule. When I tore the top off that box and saw those books my eyes welled up with tears at the wonder of it all. Just a few years ago, I never would have pictured myself a writer, much less a published one, but God saw the picture and planted a seed of passion in my heart. I am daily amazed by His goodness and mercy to me.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. As is usually the case at this time of year, busyness abounds in the MacLaren household, even minus the kids. My shopping is well underway; in fact, almost completed. I enjoy finishing early so I can kick back and simply enjoy the season.

Tomorrow night Cec and I plan to see The Nativity Story at the theater. I hope it's as good as I've heard.

May God continue to rain down His blessing of protection on all of us.

It is great to hear what God is doing in your life, as well as your family's. I always knew you to be an awsome story teller, I could sit and listen to you tell them for hours, so it does not surprise me that God would use your gift of storytelling to touch others lives by reading your books. Keep writing!
