Living Step by Step: My Author Questionnaire for Publish America

Over three years ago, I decided that there had to be something better out there than the life which I was living. With newfound trust in the angels, Jesus and GOD I went out on a limb and left a five year relationship becoming a single mother and only bread winner for me and my then four year old son. During those days I remember trying anything that allowed me to express that which was within, as life had a new taste and feel to it; people and situations that were once pleasing to my soul had become dull due to the new flow of energy that made me feel alive and aware, and I wanted more!

I sat down and wrote a collection of poems titled "Younger Days" chronicling the emotional steps that I took in order to become aligned with God's Will. That was the beginning of the broken road that lead me to "The Tapestry Chronicles" series. I remember God would often tell me to live day by day and to leave the future to HIM as He was quite aware of what I needed and would give without restrait or delay.

Those days seemed so long ago until last week when I began the deep down/behind the scenes process of sharing my awareness with others in book form. Once again my patience, committment, strength and ability to forgive went under purification and it had been a long time since I experienced a purging this deep. Well, just as I thought I couldn't take anymore God stopped the process and allowed me to look at what I had become and reminded me that humility always come before honor.

The new lesson gained or atleast the one which brings the biggest smile to my face is that its not living day by day but step by step as I have become even tighter in GOD's grip. It reminded me of a poem that I wrote eariler this month where two of the opening lines states:

I was flapping, crying and carrying on
God had to grab me by the shoulders and tell me to calm down

Now I sit deciding on a picture for the back cover of the first installment in the series "Born with Power of the Divine" and as one who truly perfer to remain faceless and nameless this is a biggie for me. One last look over of the manuscript and other odds n ends then I am out of Pre-Production and on to whatever it is that comes next . . . darn learning curve!

Thank you Susie, and I couldn't agree more we definitely need to talk . . . I'll send a private email where we can exchange information.

Its funny this process of being what it is that God intented us to be.

As far as the lines in the poem by all means be my guess.

Thanks for the comment. As always, may you stay safe and protected.

I just loved your posting!!!! I would love to use your 2 lines (with proper credit of course) if I may. It seems we are following a parallel path. I seem to be experiencing, in all facets of life that you describe above, the same things as you. We definitely need to talk. *smile*
