It was a long tough road to publication of this story. Being nominated validates my belief that God has great plans for this book! I'm so glad He wouldn't let me give up when the going got tough. (If you haven't heard my story on this, here is an interview describing it on Novel Journey - http://noveljourney.blogspot.com/2007/08/author-interview-jamie-carrie.htm )
And here is my praise to the Lord!
Psalm 100 Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. (NIV)
Be blessed by our great God!!
