How Quickly Life Can Change - Lawrence

On October 27th, 2010, I wrote in my daily journal as usual. On October 28th, I wrote the date and nothing more. That same day, I was admitted to hospital and there I stayed for two weeks, at first, not knowing whether I would live or die and, to tell the truth, not caring much either way.

Only a few days before that, I had been so excited about my new manuscript, Highway of Holiness: Soul Journey, being accepted by a publisher from the U.S.A. and had arranged to have the manuscript completed for typesetting at the end of December 2010. Suddenly, I had no energy to think about the manuscript never mind care whether I completed it or not.

Gradually, I am gaining strength, some days, I have more than others. I have to learn to pace myself and realize that God's time may not be the same as mine. I am trying to figure out what it is that God wants to teach me through this unexpected time of illness; as yet, I do not know.

I am grateful to my publisher for giving me an extension on my deadline and, I pray, that I will come closer to God through my everyday happenings.

Dear Judith,
Thank you for sharing this part of your journey -- a mixture of exhilarating good news with a potentially exasperating and worrisome experience.
May you continue to gain strength, the book come to publication, and its message be effective.
