The craft show was a huge success. I met some of my Facebook “friends” and blog followers. I love to meet all of you in person. I heard stories of remembrance, grief, and hope today. I was blessed to meet one a woman who is the wife to one of the state troopers who helped with Heidi’s case nearly eighteen years ago. I met a woman who remembers where she was, what she was eating and wearing the moment she found out Heidi was missing. A couple people inquired of the case, some expressed their condolences, and many asked “When is the book coming out?” Go God, go.
A fellow vendor and I connected the instant she came over. Pat noticed my sign, “Christian Author & Writer” from across the room and made her way over. She shared about her friend Marie Weaver. Marie is a devotional writer in Kentucky. To read one of Marie’s devotionals, click on the photo of Pat and me above. God works in mysterious ways and there are no coincidences. I told Amy, “Pat is going to have a book before the day is out.” And guess who won our raffle donation of Amy’s book and a Heidi remembrance bracelet? That’s right…Pat! Don’t you just love the way God works?
In addition to the pages of notes I’ll be typing and the new friendships I was once again reminded of God’s faithfulness. My goal as I walked through the doors to the Cicero Sacred Heart church this morning was to find out if Where’s Heidi? The Search Begins would have an interest outside of Oswego County. God answered loud and clear…people care and kept asking “Do you have your book with you?” or “When does it come out?” and “Know I’ll be buying one when it is out.”
Thank you Jesus for an uplifting and successful day as I continue to trust you!
Remember tomorrow starts this year's Heidi's remembrance blog series - I hope you will join me.
