This post covers three topics. 1) Please pray for Carter (our grandson). 2) Book news. 3) Devotional on John 3:16.
But first let me say that I hope you are all staying warm and dry from this latest wintry blast. In our little corner of northwest Arkansas we only had a few snow flurries, but the wind has been brutally cold.
Those freezing temps meant a halt to farm and garden work (other than making sure our chickens stayed warm and covering up our fruit trees that had already blossomed).
But to put a positive spin on the situation, the return of winter weather gave me time to work on getting the books re-formatted and up on Smashwords. (NOTE: The books are currently still showing up at 99-cents on Amazon. Once the eBooks go “live” as being free on places like Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and iBooks, Amazon should also adjust their price through its price-matching policies.)
The cold weather also provided time to rework the book’s pages on my website, another “must-do” in my decision to take the books off Amazon.
While I’m still not completely finished, below is a list of the books that have been completed. The links below take you to the books’ pages on this website, which in turn link to the free eBooks (for all eReaders!) on Smashwords.com.
I’d LOVE your feedback on the books’ pages (information, ease of navigation, etc.). So feel free to CONTACT ME with your comments and suggestions or leave a comment on this post. And please, be completely honest (in a kind way, of course!) ;)
The books that have been re-formatted are:
- TEXAS ROADS (Miller’s Creek #1)
- A PATH LESS TRAVELED (Miller’s Creek #2)
- THE WAY OF GRACE (Miller’s Creek #3)
- PILGRIMAGE OF PROMISE (Miller’s Creek #4)
- A BRIDGE UNBROKEN (Miller’s Creek #5)
- CROSSROADS (Miller’s Creek #6)
- PIECES ON EARTH (Christmas novella)
- THE FRAGRANCE OF CRUSHED VIOLETS (LifeSword Bible study on forgiveness)
Once I complete the re-formatting process for the rest of LifeSword Bible studies and daily devotional books, I’ll head back to STILL I WILL FOLLOW to finish up the rewrites and complete the steps to put the new Miller’s Creek book out for public consumption. :) I appreciate your support, understanding, and patience sooooooo much!
Please Pray For Carter
Thanks to so many of you who have been praying for our grandson Carter. For those who don’t know, Carter was adopted into our family at his birth in August 2016 and has been sick most of his short life.
He’s had trouble keeping food down. Causes like colic, pyloric stenosis, and allergies have basically been ruled out, though precautions are being taken.
In January he was put on a pump and nose tube. That has helped somewhat. At least he’s staying hydrated and gaining some weight. But he’s also had some abnormal numbers on previous tests that still have us all bumfuzzled.
This coming Sunday his parents will drive him to the Mayo Clinic for further testing and appointments with specialists.
We are of course praying for answers and healing, but we’re also praying that he stays clear of any infections which would put these tests/appointments on hold.
Please pray for Carter, his parents, and the medical professionals. Thank you!
Devotional on God’s Perfect Plan
My Bible reading this morning took me to John 3, where Jesus lays out God’s perfect plan of redemption for Nicodemus.
I was once more reminded of how great God’s good news truly is and decided to write a Facebook note devotional. Hope you find the post helpful and joyful! (Also praying the post finds its way to those who haven’t yet placed their trust in Jesus!)
Here’s the link:
Praying you each have an especially blessed day in the Lord. You all are such a blessing to me, and I thank the Lord for each and everyone of you!
