If there is anything I want the public to take away from my writings it is the understanding that we serve a mighty, faithful God. I am a person who was born with numerous challenges, and those challenges have followed me through my life. What has followed me as well is the grace and mercy of God. My previous book, Life Overcomer, talks of dealing with these challenges growing up and how they affected my life. It also details how God has set me free! God can take the word “disability” and change it into the words “great ability”.
Life has changed for me a lot since I finished my first book and I have gone from being a career woman to being mostly retired because of disability issues. So here I am in my favorite chair wrestling this notebook and pen away from my two cats. I will also be learning how to use a voice activated computer program as these two hands of mine can no longer do much keyboarding. The past fifteen years have presented many challenges as well, more than I can even believe. I realized after completing my first book that I ended the story just when it was really getting good. So “Seriously Now, Enough Already” continues on with the last fifteen years of my life, experiences lived, and lessons learned along the way.
You might think the title of this book a little odd. The truth is that life happens, people are not perfect, relationships are very hard work and yes, even the cats I love so much occasionally will throw up on my (white) furniture, or God forbid, on my bed! (Yuck!) In all the good, bad and ugly of life God is there, he is faithful, and in the midst of our hurt and confusion He loves us so much. He has taken me through so much. He asks us to trust him enough to walk through life one day at a time, holding his hand. And when we can no longer walk through it, he is there to carry us. The one truth in this world that will never change is God’s Holy Word. Jeremiah 29:11 reads “For I know the plans I have for you declares The Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”
It is my hope that “Seriously Now, Enough Already” will make you laugh, and make you cry – as the last bit of life has done with me, and to help us learn these lessons in life He has for us all. Lord bless and keep you.
