A Red-Letter Day!


Today is a Red-Letter Day! 

The term “Red-Letter Day” comes to us across the centuries.  Church festivals and saint days were traditionally written in red ink – thus “Red-Letter Days.”  And, while it is Holy Week there is cause for personal celebration making today a Red-Letter Day for me!

From my uncle, Todd, this morning:

I haven’t even seen a copy of the book yet, but Amazon is shipping them.  This is good news.  Very good news.  After a tumultuous two years of research and writing, writing and rewriting.  Cutting that baby in half.  And rewriting some more… well, at last I’ve come to the ultimate point:  someone will be able to hold it and read it and use it! 

A Red-Letter Day!
