You have to ask yourself why you are writing. And then you remember that when you get discouraged. No matter what anyone tells you, you have to remember. God will honor that.
—-Faith Elaine in a recent telephone conversation.
I was ready to give up.
My novel was passed over again and I just didn’t have the energy to keep trying. I took my despair to the blog and was amazed at the response.
There were others who felt the same way.
She called me the next day. She held my head up. Gave me words of encouragement. Told me things I knew, but needed to hear a fellow sojourner say.
She showed me love.
She even offered to buy me a beer. Some day I’m going to take her up on that.
She helped me remember why I write.
I’m proud to say that Elaine Olsen is my friend. She is a woman of words. Words that shed peace. Peace for the Journey.
Today I am celebrating with Elaine the release of her devotional book: peace for the journey: in the pleasure of his company.
