One of the great things about being home on furlough is the chance to catch up with friends and family we haven't seen for a long time, as well as the chance to spend time with family over the holidays, something we haven't done for seven years. We've been extra busy--and without internet the past week--but were blessed to be back with the church in Dallas that we attended before moving to Africa.
Then on Monday night, I was able to visit the crit group that meets at author Lena Nelson Dooley's home. I began attending this group before I was a published author, so it was so much fun to catch up with some of my author friends, some that I've known for years, and others that I've been blessed to get to know more recently.
Even though it's a couple days early, I want to wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving. As I spend this year's holiday season back in the States, I'm reminded of the great blessings of both freedom and opportunity, something I never want to take for granted.
And I'd love to hear from you! What are you thankful for this year? As an expression as to how thankful I am to you, my readers, I'll choose a winner from the comments who will receive a necklace from Africa and a signed copy of Blood Ransom! Please leave a way for me to contact you. I will draw a winner on the 29th.
May we be thankful for friends and family, and especially the gift of life through Christ Jesus.
Be blessed today!
(More writer friends-- Kellie Gilbert, me, Lena Nelson Dooley, and Ronie Kendig)
