My Isaac Part 9 Stepping Stones Along My Journey

 It was time to celebrate! Not only were we now retired from fostering, but I was also about to turn 50. I had decided to give myself a gift. For several months I had been busy compiling things I had written over the years to put into a book. 
 The preceding posts are found in this book and as far as I was concerned my Isaac story had come to an end. Little did I know that several more chapters were to come.

My Isaac

  Around the time that my book was completed, I discovered blogging. For the most part, I posted my song lyrics, poems and short devotionals from my book, but I also included some of our family life. The rest of this series comes from those blog posts.

From my blog May 6, 2008:


I GOT MY BOOK TODAY!!!!


My Isaac Foster Adoption Story
  They only sent me four copies for now, but the rest will be here very soon. Can you tell I'm excited?! I am so thankful that the Lord led us to this printing ministry. They have been so helpful, and I'm amazed at how quickly this has all happened. Now the hard part....sharing my baby with the world. Now that it's here, it's a little scary to think about people reading my thoughts and knowing my heart...but then that's what I'm doing here, isn't it?.... But somehow paper and ink seem different than cyberspace!

 For those who don't know, my book is called, "Stepping Stones Along My Journey," and it's pretty much what the title says...the different stepping stones I've encountered as I've made my way along this journey...from those first baby steps of learning to trust the Lord, on to the joys and responsibilities encountered along the path of motherhood, through the valleys and mountain tops experienced along this sometimes rocky path....but always on an upward path of following my Lord and Saviour to higher ground; learning to turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones, and understanding the importance of how I live each day. May it be for His honour and for His glory.

  So...please pray for me as I take this next step...or should I say leap into the water! Thank you!
