I’m sorry I haven’t written much lately. I’ve been battling a stomach bug the last few days and it seems creativity and viruses aren’t all that compatible. I’m finally getting to that point where I’m starting to feel a little bit better. I ate a cracker and it was like a gourmet meal. I walked from the couch to the kitchen and it felt like a vacation. I talked on the phone for a few moments and it was like a party. That’s the one benefit of being sick–it makes you appreciate the little things in life.
There have been times in my life that have felt that way spritually too. They happen when I’ve been battling a “bug” deep inside. It seems like things will never get better. I feel like throwing in the towel. Then God works in His mysterious, healing ways and suddenly I know it’s all going to be okay in the end. The grass is greener, the sky is bluer, and I notice it all like never before. I love those times.
I hope all of you are staying healthy. If you’re feeling a little yucky (whether it’s your stomach or your heart), I pray God heals you quickly and fully.
I’m heading to the Indianapolis Christian Writers Conference on Thursday. If any of you are going to be there, I’d love for you to let me know!
