Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
As many of you know I rented my first post office box recently. It was a fun time during the paperwork portion as I asked our wonderful post master, "It wants my business. What do I write?" She never did answer my question but smiled and laughed a lot during my time there. Then it hit me, like the whap on the forehead of the V8 commercial, duh....author and speaker.
With the particulars out of the way I returned home with a new thought, "I wonder if I will ever get any mail at the post office?" Well, it true Allen charm, my parents mailed me my first piece of mail. A wonderful, cheerful, and bright card to congratulate me on my new post office box and career. I won't bore you with the details of words written on the inside but know it was a two tissue read.
I recognized the handwriting right away and smiled. Of course, it is from my parents. With my camera in hand, I took a picture before removing it from the box, as evidence I am officially an author and speaker, and I have the mail to prove it.
And today I received my second mailing and it was a package!! Oh yeah, I opened the mailbox to find a yellow card telling me I had a package to big for the box. Sweet!
Guess what? It was my book returning from the lovely Elaine with notes and suggestions for this round of revisions before going to print. This wonderful woman is already talking about my book on her Facebook page, isn't that just too sweet?
As if this wasn't joyful enough I had a beautiful note from the wonderful Vie to encourage me through this part of the editing and revision process. Double blessed today ~ one at home and one at the post office.
Regardless of where the mail comes from, it comes with love and is received with a grateful heart. God has placed some amazing people in my life ~ making this journey an even better ride.
Is there a piece of mail that stands out in your memory as being special or noteworthy (no pun intended)? Will you share?
