Misgivings or Thanksgivings

I answered an unknown caller, Thanksgiving week, 2017.

“I’ve read your manuscript.

It rings true…

“I like this….”

Watch for the contract.”

Gently, I hung up, then raced to Ken’s study.

He had seen my misgivings–

concern about spending so much time,

two years,

on a project that might not see the light of day.

“Taylor and Seale will publish my story!”

Ken’s laughter lit the room.

I went crunching into the yard

Over multi-colored leaves I whispered:Dragongly Blue Dasher

Thank you God

      for prompting me to answer Dr. Custueri’s call.

     for an opportunity to help distracted kids come along and belong.

     for fall leaves

     for family and friends.

God, you are so good.

A year has passed and Flynn and the Dragonfly is scheduled to release this December.

Watch for it this holiday season.

Amazon, Books-a-million, Taylor and Seale.


Even in situations darkened with misgivings, we can cling to the promise in Psalm 23

“Surely goodness and mercy will follow me

all the days of my life,

and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

See Psalm 23.
