God is so wonderful, I am living out my dream and it's only the beginning!
January 24th, 2009 was the anniversary of my very first booksigning ever!
(Ricky is my beloved photographer)
Barnes & Noble in Williamsburg is where it all started. Great start wouldn't you agree? The managers and staff greeted me with open arms then and this past Saturday was again a delightful atmosphere! There were no exceptions.
I was greatful for the opportunity to return, excited about the possibilities of meeting new book lovers, being able to share my devotional with a transparent heart (a lot less nervous) and prayerfully conveying a sincerity that once the devotional was introduced certainly one would want it to compliment there own inspirational library. I was greeted with enthusiasm but not everyone rushed to the counter to make a purchase. But, I understand that's the nature of a booksigning. I had many well wishers, and some that promised if they could they would purchase it and others agreed to return to the store at a future time. And to my delight there were those that brought my devotional, this really made my heart leap for joy. So my friends it seems to balances out. I just regret not having favors and some yummy desert for everyone.
God does what He does and that's sometimes placing us front and center with the pure motive of sharing his truths and promises ( He simply needs elects a willing vessel)-I hope I fulfilled His mission and didn't disappoint Him? I conversed, commensurated, laughed, talked probably a little too loud when I was really thrilled and listened. Yes, I even silently prayed. It's apparent now as I share this, that God was holding my hand the entire afternoon. I am trusting that I was exactly where he intended me to be a year later after the publication and booksigning of: The Blessedness of Believing A Devotional Journey of Life's Lessons and God's Promises!
Nevertheless I am continually with You;
You hold me by my right hand.
It's another year my friends and I am delighted to be an author on a divine misssion. (Instead of writing another post I just thought why not place this entry with the inital invitation. Hope you didn't mind?) I am greatful for those the Lord sent my way and the wonderful Saturday afternoon spent at my favorite bookstore-Barnes & Nobles. Hope to see you there again in the near future. Maybe next time we can share some wonderful chocolate chunk cookies and some icey drinks when we celebrate your milestones. Blessings to you!
