My Refuge

Placid waters
Pelicans plunging
Snowy egret soaring
Soft chirps, hearty honks
Wildlife rustling
Fish Leap, ripples emerge
Stillness; a whisper of a breeze
Palms dance
Circling current
Swish of an oar
Fluttering of a baby seagull’s wing
Sudsy backwash from a boat’s engine
Worldly white noise eliminated
Sunshine’s heat bakes the earth
This is God’s world, His creation
Mine to enjoy
Here I seek His face, His strength,
His wisdom, His forgiveness, His love
My troubles cascade His holy feet
My circumstances used for His good
He is my refuge, my deliverer, my joy
My sole purpose?
To serve him wholeheartedly and joyfully all the days of my life.

Detour

Nearly four months has passed since I last communicated on this website. My life as an author had taken a detour and now I am back on track. My beloved father in law, John Gainor Sr., passed away on November 6 and then we relocated to Florida with my mother-in-law. These combined life events have allowed me to see the glory of God in all circumstances and to trust Him as I plod blindly forward to the next phase of my life with hope and assurance that He is always by my side. In combination with this my fantastic publisher, CrossBooks, folded and yet God led me to a new publisher, Westbow Press, which is a division of Thomas Nelson and Zondervan. This renowned publisher will enable my books to have more exposure and reach new audiences with their support and guidance. My book was recreated with their approval and credentials. With God all things are possible. We all experience detours in life. We think we have a plan and then circumstances alter the outcome. It is truly a wild ride, but through it all if we follow our God centered GPS system, we will ultimately discover our true destiny through the eyes of Christ.

The Gift of God

christmas-giftChristmas is just around the corner and Eyewitness to a Savior is the perfect stocking stuffer for people of all ages. The inspirational stories will delight the reader and affirm Christ’s amazing love.  It is always exiting to receive a personal inscription from the author.  If you order the book from any venue, send me an email with the name of the person receiving it and I will send you a signed inscription label as well as a bookmark.  This will give the gift a personal touch. To purchase a copy, click on one of the links for Cross Publishers, Barnes and Noble and Amazon here. This Christmas you have an opportunity to give more than a present when you share the message of hope, peace, and Christ’s sacrificial love that will undoubtably change a life.  God bless you.

Book Launch Celebration

August 27, 2014 is an evening I will never forget. The launch of Eyewitness to a Savior was celebrated and more than 120 people attended the event. Pastel balloons created  a festive feel as guests nibbled on pastries and fruit. Beautiful hand bells were played, an excerpt from the book was read and signings took place during this monumental evening. The pictures from the book were displayed with descriptions depicting the meaning behind each photograph. A highlight for me was the unexpected arrival of my daughter-in-law, Laura and grandchildren, Clara and Garrett carrying flowers for their Nana. Many people supported the event from the church community, Bible studies, Dairy Queen organization, friends, and even a former student. Raffle tickets revealed winners of DQ gift cards and a signed hardcover book. The cake was an identical replication of the book cover created by DQ. I loved signing books and hearing the stories of those who would read them. God tremendously blessed me with support and love and I pray those who read this book will draw close to the Author Himself, the Lord Almighty.

Counting Down to the Book Launch

countdownAs the countdown begins to celebrate the launch of Eyewitness to a Savior next week (August 27, 2014: Book Launch Party – Normandale Hylands United Methodist Church), I would like to share some thoughts concerning the spiritual journey that has brought me to the threshold of this exciting ministry. I have entitled these talking points the 4 P’s with a gold star ending. Be sure to come back each day for the next 5 days to check them out. Thanks again for all of your support!

Beginning the Journey

CoverAs you read this post, I am hoping you sense the elation and praise reverberating as I gaze upon the catalog detailing my very first book, Eyewitness to a Savior.
All glory and honor goes to my glorious Lord who inspired the message and provided the encouragement and means to arrive at this momentous moment.
Five years in the making, it was God’s prodding and direction that made this ministry possible.
I can hardly believe my eyes as I gaze upon the finished product. My prayer is for Christ to use this book as a means to enhance your personal relationship with Him. Bless you.
