Nineteen days until the actual editing process begins. It seems as if the past month and a half has passed in slow motion for me. Not necessarily meaning that time has passed slowly, just that I have been operating in slow motion. Once the manuscript was submitted, accepted and a date for the process to begin was issued, it was as if I went on strike. I'm not sure why that happened. Perhaps because it has been a long wait and I was ready, mentally, for some rest. Three years, while not very long in the scheme of things, can be a long time to attempt to patiently wait on God while His purpose is fulfilled. Those who know me, know that patience is not one of my strong suits. Long ago I stopped praying for more because I know He takes me seriously and puts me in situations that require more patience! Of course He still knows exactly what I need and is not fooled by my meager attempts at fooling Him. So, life continues to come at me, raising me up into God's perfect plan for my life. I humbly submit all that I am and all that I hope to be to His will.
