Happy new year! I’m a couple of days early, but it’s the thought that counts. Right?
Raise your hand if you like making resolutions. I’m a big resolution-maker. I usually have a chart. It might be color-coded. I keep a journal on my resolutions. It’s possible I go a little overboard.
But as I thought and prayed about 2020, I knew I wanted to make some changes. In 2019, I discovered that I have fairly severe osteoarthritis. I was relieved on the one hand, because some of my tests indicated lupus. On the other hand, I was a little stunned to realized this would be something I’d have to deal with the rest of my life. “Well, we all have something,” I can hear my mother saying. Still, my diagnosis reinforced my determination to make healthy changes.
So I’ve taken a temporary (possibly permanent) leave from teaching at my local college. I’ve resigned from church commitments (except for choir/piano). I’ve decided to spend less time on the computer, which led to the decision to ditch social media (gasp). I’m literally giving myself what I’ve come to think of as a year of jubilee–a time of rest and renewal.
There will still be lots of books. In fact, I have at least 7 books releasing in 2020. And I still want to hear from you! The best place to do that is right here, but you can also connect with me on Goodreads, Bookbub, and through my newsletter. You can also follow me on Amazon in order to receive emails regarding upcoming releases.
I pray that 2020 will bring you much joy, the peace of our Lord, and the happiness of friends and family. Thank you for being such a encouragement to me on this journey.
