Mountain Top Experience
Mt. Hermon is a taste of Heaven. Beth Thompson, Julie Williams, Chris Pederson, Dani Marie and I arrived a day early. Friday morning we went to the beach, sang our praises and prayed at the Walton Light House. We enjoyed viewing boats leaving and returning to the marina. We also watched a sea otter frolicking above the surf.
Chris and I took the Writing Children's Books morning track. Bill Myers made our lessons and homework assignments as fun as reading one of his books. We recommended him for keynote speaker for next year. Little did we know that plan was already in the works. So-o-o we will be returning and I will celebrate my birthday at Mt. Hermon in 2011.
I attended two enlightening workshops on using humor as a tool in writing. They were a blast. Two other workshops I attended inspired me to write personal interest stories taught by B. J. Taylor. I am dreaming of winning the Guidepost contest for a week in New York, all expenses paid, to learn how to write for Guidepost. The deadline for that is fast approaching.
I was fortunate to sell one of my articles and Susan King took one of my devotions home with her to The Upper Room. I came home to rework another article with a request from Tonya Stoneman to resubmit it to In Touch.
Thank you, Lord, for blessing my work and my connections. Thank you for Mt. Hermon and all the wonderful people I met there.
