First off, let me give a heads up. Though Healing Promises can be a stand-alone story, it's actually a sequel to Ransomed Dreams, Amy's previous release. You'll want to read Randsomed Dreams first so you don't read spoilers in Healing Promises! If you'd like to read the first chapter Ransomed Dreams, please visit http://www.defendersofhope.com/rd_chapter.html .
Also, Amy has an amazingly fun and chocolatey website. :) Please visit her at http://www.amywallace.com/ and be sure to sign up for her newsletter .
So now it's birthday time! David, we're excited you could be with us here today. Happy birthday from all of us in the blog world! As a tribute to you, Amy has started a poem, and our blog readers will write the conlcuding verse. Amy will select her favorite, or maybe you can choose the winner! The winning entry will receive the prize mentioned above.
For those of you who enter, please leave your entry in the the comments section along with your email or blog address so I can reach you if you win. I look forward to the entries!!
Here's the the poem opening. You write the final verse:
I Still Do
I hold you in my heart
My love to you I give
He holds us together
As three in One we live
A special note to David from Amy:
Happy Birthday, David!!! Remember this poem? Or should I say song. ;-) Those words sung from a giddy, newly-wed heart over thirteen years ago are still as true today. Maybe a little less giddy, but so much deeper. And they fit perfectly into Healing Promises because you're the reason Steven, Clint and Michael are the heroes they are. Happy Birthday, honey! Always remember, I still do... forever, David.

I've got to go see an orthopedist tomorrow. My father-in-law, a retired orthopedic surgeon, thinks I'll probably have a cast for 3 weeks. In fact, when I described my foot folding and the pop, he diagnosed the 5th metatarsal break over the phone without x-rays! :)
I guess I'll let you know how I'm doing tomorrow. Prayers for patience would be appreciated! (And of course for healing.)
In the meantime, please stop my the Seekerville blog on Monday. I'm posting on facing our fears.

I probably won't post again until I have my manuscript mailed to my editor. I'm finishing revisions (remember how many words I needed to cut out of that first draft?!)! I hope to check back in on Tuesday. Wednesday at the latest. Pray for me! :)

We spent the first part of the week in Gatlinburg, TN. We've stayed many times at this wonderful little motel right on the river where they bring homemade doughnuts to your room in the morning--yum! But the coffee is like coffee-flavored water. I guess I should have walked to Starbucks each morning, but hey, I was having breakfast in my p.j.'s and didn't want to get out in the cold. :) So I suffered through.
Then the second leg of our trip we spent at my husband's parents' farm. They're on well water, and it has tons of minerals. It tastes a bit rusty, and even with my own coffee beans, it was awful. Again, I probably should have gone to Starbucks or to buy bottled water. But while we're there, we tend to act as if we're in the middle of the wilderness--fishing and hanging out in a 100-year-old farm house.
So this morning, as I sipped that first yummy sip, I groaned in ecstasy. There's no place like home.
What's your favorite way to do coffee? Or are you a hot tea drinker? Also, don't forget to take my poll over to the right!

And speaking of that... We recently had a discussion on the Seeker blog about blogging. It led me to wonder if my blog is easy to navigate. So please, I'd love some feedback! And while you're telling me what you think about the layout, I'd love to hear what topics/posts interest you most.
Please leave me a comment on what you think works and what doesn't. And don't forget to tell me your favorite topics!
Thanks so much for visiting and for your input. I know there are tons of blogs out there, and I appreciate each and every visitor.
