Yesterday in church, a friend gave me a few slips of paper. She said she had been praying for me and felt these were words that God wanted to share with me. I unfolded the papers to read such wonderful words of encouragement. She wrote that God was well aware of my transitional phase, but He is doing new things, things I could have never done in the past because of teaching my son. Especially (and this was noted) in the area of writing. Now I don't know specifically what that will entail, as God has not yet open the doors. But with these words, I am now looking to charge into a few new areas of writing and seeing where it leads me. Reviving some old manuscripts and old ideas that have been lying in wait for a very long time. I know I have a true Friend and Advocate who is interested in me and will be with me every step of the way. And that is true and everlasting encouragement

A Timely Word of Encouragement
Boy, don't we need encouragement, especially in this lonely arena of writing, and especially when nothing seems to be happening. I have been asking God about my writing lately, and really, about my life as I am transitioning from being a home school teacher for upwards of 13 years to my new place now.
