I thought it might be lovely to gather us all around a communal Seekerville table and share that tradition.
I asked some of the Seekers to get us started.
This year, I'm very thankful my son just moved back to the Atlanta area on Sunday. We're thrilled to have him nearby once again!
I'm thankful for God's perfect timing this year on so many events, big and small.
I am grateful for the everyday people God puts in my life. My family, my friends, the Seekers, the folks I can say anything to and not get into trouble. It's an absolute pleasure to be able to be just me... the ones who know my ins and outs and ups and downs and love me regardless. And that includes the friends I might not see for months or years... and yet still love. They never make me feel guilty! More reason to love them.
I am thankful for my family, for new relationships forming, and for the many blessings God has given me.
I’m thankful for my family and God’s many blessings.
I’m thankful that God is good even when life isn’t, even when the world is falling apart, even when I can’t see His plan - His heart can be trusted & for that I’m so grateful.
I give thanks for all of you, dear friends, who are on this writing journey with me. May God bless you and your families abundantly. Happy Thanksgiving!
I remember the night I sold my first book at the ACFW Conference. Barbour Publishing … represented by Tracie Peterson, announced from the podium that they were offering me a contract. It remains one of the very best moments of my life.On that night when I got my first contract, I remember saying to someone, "I don't want to sell ONE book, I want a career."Later I couldn't believe I had the nerve, the--to me--arrogance to speak of a career after selling one little Heartsong.
But I said it. I wanted it. I hoped and prayed for it.This month Bethany House has offered me a new three book contract. It will be for my 66, 67, and 68th books.I will never take it for granted. I will never stop being stunned and amazed. I will never stop being thankful for having a career as a published author.
I'm thankful for so much, but especially for all of you. May you have a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving!
