Just Plain Happy!

I've been sitting on a bit of big news for about a month now...waiting for it to become "official". Well, it turns out yesterday was the official day, and it couldn't have come at a better time. You're going to have to click here though to find out why I'm just plain happy!

Congrats to John! I hope that you are feeling better soon. I know it's hard when you get into a funk and especially at this time of year. I hope that putting up your Christmas tree helps perk up your spirits and that your Daddy has good results from the tests. Thanks for the CD tip too. I think I've worn out my Amy Grant cd's so I'd like to check out Point of Grace. Have a blessed and warm day!

"the prayer of righteous man availeth much!"

Rejoicing with you!!!

Mer,

So glad for such a bright spot of news in these days!

I've seen Pierce in concert, and I was excited to see John's reading the newest Kathleen Norris. I got to hear her speak last year and had forgotten this book was coming out.

Keep us posted on the book's release!

Wow! How exciting. That is a great idea for a book (but I guess someone else already decided that).

I love the holidays, but sometimes the stress gets to me and I lose sight of where my heart and mind should be.
