Light Bounces Back

A few days ago I wrote about God’s light shining in the darkness. At the time, I finished reading Janice Thompson’s cozy mystery Gone With the Groom. “Annie Agatha” asks God to shine His light on the darkness surrounding the disappearance of her future son-in-law. God echoed the message of His overpowering light through her words.

Janice Thompson is not only a great writer but also a good friend. In the wee hours of the morning when we learned Jolene was dead, I posted a message to the Barbour author loop. To my shock, Janice wrote back immediately—a real night owl. Her response was a harbinger of the outpouring of love we received from the Christian writing community.

Thank you, Janice. Thank all of you who care and pray and read.

And when you have a chance, check out Gone With the Groom.

You are too, too sweet, honey. And isn't it interesting? I VIVIDLY remember writing that part about the light shining on the darkness when I wrote the book. Of course, I never knew about the timing of your reading it... God is good.

Isn't God good to give us friends--no, pillars of strength--in our times of need? Like Aaron, these people come alongside and hold up our arms we cannot whisper a prayer. We love you, Darlene. You are still in my prayers.

Hi, Darlene, sorry to be so absent this week. I'm out of town with limited internet. I'm thinking of you.
