Here it is leap day, February 29th 2012. This day only comes around every 4 years, sort of like my book publication… But I hold fast to my life lesson and motivation for writing this book : God’s timing is perfect and He allows everything into my life for my good and His glory. It is rather poignant that the vehicle for my life message has undergone the process so well. But I am truly thankful for it. I have been able to soak up some new things in life. Mainly, I am now a mom who gets to stay home. All the years of working in jobs I wasn’t particularly excited about have given me a daily appreciation for this new journey. Living in a new town has also provided me lots of time to soak up so much of the life lessons I’ve been through but not had time to ponder. I am so thankful that I didn’t have a book publication to distract from that. I don’t want to sound too dramatic, but this time of waiting has been a spiritual awakening in me. I am so aware that the ONLY thing that matters in life is what God is doing in it. I want to participate with Him.
So here it is almost 4 years after I excitedly shared with so many that I wrote a book and it was going to be published. I have heard from my publisher off and on over the years and recently have been assured that this is really it. They are really going to get me my proofs and then off we go. That would be fun. Wouldn’t it?
I will keep you up to date on what is happening with my book. One thing that I am excited about is the book trailer. I filmed it almost 2 years ago and then held onto this amazing HD footage. My laptop didn’t have the speed or memory to do the appropriate editing so for my birthday this month (and the next 10 years) 🙂 my husband bought me a new computer. And the software and HD footage get along like a house on fire! So I threw together a trailer with some of the footage. It really is ‘slapped’ together and is just to show some of the great footage we got. I have been having so much fun playing with the software that hours just wiz by! I hope to have a polished trailer to go with the actual book.
So without further ado I give you my first very rough draft book trailer…
