no news about Pilipinto's Happiness!

For those of you who have asked about getting Pilipinto's H. again, it is not in print, and I would very much like to get it in print this coming year.  I need to find a new publisher and need to shorten it a little for younger readers, as well as put a few more drawings in by my Uncle Jim.  I'm open to any suggestions as to a publisher.  Please write to shepelliot@gmail.com.  My friend who answers that email will let me know when I have comments that I need to do something about! With the writing of Devotedly, I had completely dropped doing anything on the blog, and now checking the comments, I'm sorry to those of you who had written and I had not answered back!

Please pray that I can find a publisher who is willing to do this book.

And here's a quote that I recently discovered from C.S. Lewis.
"Remember, tho' we struggle against things because we are afraid of them, it is often the other way round -- we get afraid BECAUSE we struggle...Our Lord says to you, 'Peace, child, peace. Relax. Let go.  Underneath are the everlasting arms. Let go, I will catch you."  he wrote this in a letter to Mary Shelburne on June 17, 1963

That helped me, and I hope it helps you too!

We now live in MS because my husband retired, but Christ Coastal church is still active and a wonderful group of loving people who love the Lord.
