Packing up the Pink

“…always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 5:20


Ten years ago, when diagnosed with breast cancer, I was just beginning this writing journey. I wondered at times if I would live to see the fulfillment of the writing related dreams I believed God had spoken to my heart.

However, since that time he’s blessed me beyond anything I would have been able to imagine.

Just this year alone, since I started this blog midsummer, I’ve had visitors from dozens of countries around the world. In December, a devotion I penned will be on Christian Devotions.US and another devotion I’ve written will appear in the Upper Room, reaching one hundred countries in thirty-nine languages. On December 27th, my UR devotion will be read in Arabic over the radio in nations print media cannot reach. And of course, I’m hoping for wonderful things with my screenplay which was a Kairos Prize Finalist and is just been optioned by Elevating Entertainment. I have several other projects in the works, but it’s all a gift from God—my writing—my time—my very life.

Thank you for coming along this month as I’ve celebrated my tenth year living cancer free. I want every day that God has planned for me, and I do not have enough words in me to thank Him for all God’s already given. “O for a thousand tongues to sing my great redeemers praise, the glories of my God and King, the triumphs of his Grace,” reads one of my favorite hymns by Charles Wesley. I wish I had a thousand tongues…and pens to write His praise.

I’m kind of sad the month is over. I’m packing up my pink clothes and Lucy will get a new collar. All the pink ribbon stuff will be shelved until next year. Don’t go away, though, just because the month is over.

My blog will resume its former look starting tomorrow. I may not post EVERY day, but several times a week.

I’ll be right here at One Ringing Bell with peals of words on faith, living, and writing.

Many blessings to you all.
