Its so peaceful up here, so serene. It would probably be a good idea to close my eyes a bit, but my brain is too full and besides, I love flying at night. Time enough to sleep later.
Kudos Decatur Book Festival-- your Bookzilla was truly a monster literary happening. I thank you for allowing me to play. It truly feels like recess to me.
A HUGE happy heartfelt "Thank You" to every written word loving soul who listened to what I had to say, laughed at my nonsense, or bought my book with your hard earned money. You humble me.
Sometimes I wonder when one of the super cool author type folks I get to hang with at these things is gonna say, "Halt--who goes there? Hey you, Country Girl--Yes, you-- the one impersonating one of us, we're gonna need to see some credentials."
I, of course, will not be able to locate said credentials anywhere-- not in my suitcase, my purse, not even in trust bberry here that I can't believe I'm typing so long on! I suppose the gig will be up at that point, but until then its game on, huh porchers?
I did rest a bit just now, to think. Closed my eyes and laid my head just so against the seat and imagined I was resting on Father God's chest. I wanted to run some things by Him. I wondered what He thought about some of the things I saw and heard this weekend.
Wanted to tell Him how much I liked that woman from L.A., the one with the blue, silver, and black hair. I thought it was so pretty. I don't want to wear the style so much, but it really suited her. I asked Him to bless her, to order circumstances to bring her to Him if she didn't know Him and to deepen her understanding and intimacy if she did.
I asked Him to explain some things to me about other stuff I heard, too, things I probably shouldn't blog (and you thought I didn't have a filter *grin*). Told Him I wanted His perspective on those ponderings, not mine.
Landing now. I put some pics on facebook from the festival. Don't think I'll attach 'em here. Not much time left. Instead, I think I'll post a night sky pic w/this before I hit send on the ground in MS. Did you know the Bible says God calls the stars by name? He knows yours too, and He loves you. He has a future and a hope for You. I pray you find it.
Thanks for being a part of my life. I don't take it lightly. I pray I never will.
