Scarf's Done!

I finished knitting this scarf––one of my first completed garments––and I wore it today. What a feeling of accomplishment! Do you suppose God had the same warm feeling when he knit each of us--in our mothers' wombs?

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb" (Psalm 139:13 NIV).

Writing and Friendship

Here's a photo of me (left/pink blouse), my literary agent Janet,(red jacket) and three writing friends, Georgia, Penny and Nikki. Writing is hard, solitary work. It is so good to know there are other people who understand what it's like to search one's mind and heart for just the right words, to meet deadlines no matter what, and to turn in a manuscript and wait for a verdict! I treasure the company of women friends who are also writers and who share the ups and downs of life as a wordsmith. Thank you, one and all.
