Unexpected Long Dry Spell; Hopefully Ending Very Soon

It's been an incredibly long time since I posted anything on this blog. As they say, "due to circumstances beyond my control." Not to go into the boring details, but increasing health issues mixed with a string of computer problems (I'm beginning to think computers are allergic to me) prevented me from writing for several months. In that time I managed to do only short, unoriginal entries for a couple of books that deserve much more attention, attention I intend to give them soon. From May 12 until July 15 I was totally out of commission, in the hospital and a convalescent center. Home has never looked as good as it does now. I'm still a bit slow about writing, partly because I'm still not running on all four cylinders, but there's a huge backlog of books that I need to review. My apologies to all the authors and publishers who rightfully expected a post on the books sent to me. Now I have to find them all again before I can begin, since some of my incredible friends straightened up my apartment while I was gone.

I also want to take a moment to thank my friends who knew about my problems, who lifted me up in their thoughts and prayers. The prayers kept me going, I know. Your concern and care has overwhelmed me; I feel so very blessed!

So, God willing and a computer is working, I should get started next week. I may not get the reviews out in the proper order, but they will be forthcoming!

Hurrah! She's posting!

Cathi, I'm so glad you've reached the stage where you're able to make a blog entry. I hope and pray that your health continues to hold at its current level--and maybe even improves in the future! So glad your friend dealt with the computer problem in such a caring way.

Take care of yourself!

Under the Mercy,

Thank you ladies, for welcoming me back and for all your prayers on my behalf. The Lord heard you. I'm way behind on reading your blogs as well as writing my own. I am really out of the loop, and I've missed it all.

Marcia, I truly think your book is one of the best I've read in some time. By the way, I did three blogs on it in Mrch, 2010 as part of the CFRB tour.
