Mercy! Praise the Lord!

Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.
Isaiah 26:4
Oh, bloggy friends! I have such wonderful news that I can finally share! I am so excited!! My precious friend, Elaine at "Peace for the Journey" has published her first book!!!! Whoohoo!! God laid this upon her heart so long ago, and with His perfect timing, it is now available to all of us. She has put her trust in Him to see this to fruition, and I cannot wait to hold a copy in my hand!

If you have never read Elaine's posts, you have missed so many blessings. She has such a beautiful gift of sharing God's love, warmth, and peace in her writing. Now, you can have a hard copy of her work....a blessing from our Lord!

I encourage you to click on her name, go to her website and see the trailer....just lovely! And, y'all....she is such a real friend! I just love how God has crossed our paths. She has been such an encourager in my photography endeavor. Believing in me and trusting that I can capture "God moments" through the lens of my camera. Just this morning, I received an email from my cousin. She has seen my website and is interested in my taking pictures of her daughter's wedding in late summer. Y'all, this is a huge leap of faith! And, I would so appreciate your prayers that God would reveal to me if this is part of His plan.

So, chickadees, please hop over to "Peace for the Journey" and visit awhile with Elaine. Tell her that Susan sent you! Oh, and sweet thing that she is....Elaine is giving away copies of her book!

Y'all have a wonderful day!

Sweet Blessings,

OK... you are so kind and your words humble me. And for those of you who don't know... Susan's pictures are included in the book! She did an awesome job. What's not to love about Runner Mom? She's even offered to help me move. Imagine that.

Blessings, friend. You're the best! I mean that.

Let me just tell you...those pictures on her video for the book are GORGEOUS. Girl, you have an eye for 'beautiful'.

Rejoicing with all of you today!

Susan, you are a good friend.

DISCLAIMER!!!! Sweet Joanne thought that I took the cover shot of Elaine's wonderful book. She is precious for thinking that, but, alas, I did not! Some of my pictures are IN the book. As I told Joanne, I need a really nice $$ lens to do something like that!! I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!!! Love to all!

That is exciting news. I follow her blog, but I am so behind on all my blogging friend's updates :)

I loved the prom pictures. The one of you and your son is beautiful. I am sure you are so proud.
