On the eve of this Christmas, I am sitting at home with two sick kids. Okay, they are recovering...thankfully. My husband has taken the other Dingo to a neighboring town to do some last minute Christmas shopping. So I thought I'd share my Christmassy thoughts with you.
After such a troubled year, I wish for an end to the crazy violence we've seen. I wish for everyone to find peace in Jesus. I wish for our government to get their stuff together and make life a little easier for its citizens. (And I don't mean that as a political statement, but just in general!)
Now I know those wishes won't come true. They are too big for any human to handle. Those will fall to my prayer list.
On a personal note, this year, I would like to find a literary agent who is willing (and excited!) to work with me. I'd like to receive a traditional publishing contract for my series and other books I've planned. And I'd like to see Asylum take off. It would be swell if it reached Kindle's Top 100.
And perhaps those wishes won't come true. It's really hard to break into publishing. I am willing to do my part of the work, though, so we'll see what happens.
If none of my wishes are granted, I still count myself blessed. I have a fantastic family, wonderful friends, a warm home, and food on the table. There are lots of folks out there who don't have those things. So while I share my Christmas wishes, I also want to praise God for my blessings. I am so thankful for all I have.
And as long as we're wishing, I wish you and yours a very merry Christmas. Remember what it's all about:
Award-winning sci-fi author * Christ follower, wife, and mom * broadcast content producer. And yes, I am a real duchess. http://amzn.to/2eLTlH3
