Why I Disappeared . . .

You may be wondering why I disappeared. This time, I have a good reason. :) Multiple, actually. I don't even know where to begin.

I suppose I should start with the biggest reason I've vanished from the blogging world. If you know me either in person or follow Andi's Blog, you should know that my family was threatened by the Chimney Fire. My area was put under mandatory evacuation and our power was out for multiple days. After about two long weeks of watching the smoke and then flames, the fire was stopped nearly a mile and a half away from my house. So, I was a little bit preoccupied and blogging was not on my list of top priorities. Prior to that and since then, I have had school work to do, and now I'm focusing on catching up. I'm also in the process of beta-reading two books for some great friends and trying to get back to my own writing project(s) after a rather long and unintentional break.

However, I am just so grateful that the Lord saved my home from the flames. Thank you to everyone who was praying for me. Those prayers had a lot to do with stopping the fire!

I've been writing a few posts, but felt like this one needed to be written first, so you knew that I was still doing well. :) Keep your eyes out for those upcoming posts!

Oh yes, and as a side note, today is National Buy A Book Day. An author I follow did a great post about it that you can visit HERE.
