Weekend Reading. . .

A couple weeks ago, I entered a contest offered by @MeganRecords, editor at Kensington Publishing. The prize…a copy of the books she’s edited over the previous four years!

I got my prize this week. Check it out:

A box full of books! What a dream!

HOLY COW! Look at all that reading I get to do! And my To Be Read list is already a mile long.

I must resist diving right in, though, until I finish editing Portal to Aeon. Once that’s done, I can get lost in a few books.

Thanks, Megan. This is a great prize!

Happy Weekending, everyone!

Comfort . . .

My BFF sent this email to me the other day, and in light of the recent cancer diagnosis my mother in law received, it really fits where I’m at these days….

A Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard. During the night the folks came across this scene. An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep. He chose baby Jesus as his comfort. No one had the heart to send him away so he was there all night.

We should all have the good sense of this dog and curl up in Jesus’ lap from time to time.

Run, Lynn, run. . .

I love Facebook and Twitter. You guys are all so encouraging.

I set a goal of running a 10-mile race (Aflac Iron Girl) a while back and slowly worked my way up to running 10 miles.

The race was this past weekend, and it was awesome. Even more awesome was the support and encouragement my fellow Facebook, Twitter, and blogging friends offered. One of my friends posted, Run, Lynn, run!!!  Forrest Gump immediately came to mind. LOL. No way could I run across the country, though.

Anyway. . .

I thought I’d share a little bit about the day with you all since many of you were a part of the day, whether you knew it or not.

Here I am racing toward the finish line. Crowds are cheering. It was great.

Me & Charlie at the finish. He found me after I finished, ran up and yanked me into the bestest HUG ever! I'm so blessed by him!!

Wow. It was such a great day. Sunny, warm, and surrounded by tons of encouraging and supportive people. The theme of the race was, “RACE WITH GRACE” and let me tell you, they did. That’s why I love this Aflac Iron Girl race. They have them in lots of states. You should check it out.

Thanks for sharing this great day with me, everyone. If I can do it, so can you!
