    Hi everyone. Padraig recently sent me an email asking me to return to the forum. While I had been considering and praying about my role here, I had NOT made a decision that I was quitting the forum or that I no longer wanted to be a member of this community. However, after receiving Padraig’s email, it occurred to me that my recent unexplained absence might have been taken as insult and possible cause hurt. After all, a friend doesn’t just take off without letting his friends know what’s up. If my lack of consideration has offended anyone, I am sincerely sorry. Please accept my apology.


    My absence has been due to a number of reasons. Most of all, I’ve just been extremely busy between work, family, ministry and the pursuit of a new interest in my life. I’ll try to fill you all in on this later. For now I’ll just say that in prayer I felt led to this. Secondly, as I shared with Terry in a PM, I was feeling extremely discouraged with the lack of interest from the publishing world in my book. Added to this, I went through a period of what I can only describe as a great spiritual dryness, and these factors combined led me to step back and take a break from writing. As of two days ago on the Immaculate Conception, this spiritual dryness seems to have ended.

    So I am back. I don’t know how much time I’ll have to contribute, but I’ll at least be checking in regularly and joining in your prayers.

    Darrell,
    So nice to hear from you again. I was wondering where you had gone but no I wasent offended but was hoping all was O.K. with you and your family. Everybody I know seems to be going through more suffering in varying degrees. I dont post much myself but I do check in every day and it helps me.

    God bless to you and your precious family
    Mary

    From the Letter of James:

    1:4 And patience hath a perfect work: that you may be perfect and entire, failing in nothing.

    Darrell,

    Look how much we've grown while waiting for your return! :D

    Safe in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary!

    Hi Darrell, breaking into print is tougher than ever and it's only going to get tougher. As for me, I quit counting after the hundredth rejection or so. Why I still plug away, I don't know. I must be a sucker for punishment or something. Hope to see you around.

    Darrell, this is a friend of mine who published her book about a year ago. You might want to contact her to see if there is another way to go about it, she might have helpful information. http://www.bridgebetweeneastandwest.com/
