This morning, I hit the snooze button about 7 times. Achy body. Scratchy throat. Head pounding.
Sitting up in bed, I did the only thing a reasonable person can think to do. I checked my email.
“Not to upset your count down, but…”
Those were the words of my editor. At first, I thought there was a delay. Then I realized that, really, it meant that things moved more quickly than expected.
“Paint Chips” is available now. On Amazon. For Kindle users. HERE!
I rushed to my laptop. Saw that Amber Timm had already purchased a copy (she posted about it on Facebook). Whoop. Hooray. Yippeee!
And then, I remembered what day it is.
Today is Human Trafficking Awareness Day. A day that our nation focuses on modern day slavery. And I was moved. Because I wrote “Paint Chips” with the desire to open hearts to slavery that happens here, in the United States. And to highlight the huge hope that we have when people stand up and fight for the freedom of others.
One of the points that I wanted to make with “Paint Chips” is that, because of God’s faithfulness, victims can be turned into survivors. Dark to light. Slaves to the redeemed.
And today is the perfect day for me to say, with a humble heart, that all the glory goes to God. I want to point to His love for us and say, “He is mighty to save”.
