February 2018 Update from Author Lynnette Bonner

My Life this Month...

Some of you may have noticed that I didn't get a newsletter sent out in April. The truth is that I haven't felt much like writing, recently. I mentioned several months ago that I have a friend dying of cancer and asked for prayers for her. Well, in the early part of April she got the word that there was nothing more anyone could do for her. A group from our church has been to their house a couple times to do services with them, since she is too weak to travel. And without the intervention of a miracle, she only has days now. 

Will you take a moment to say a prayer for her family? Her kids are late teens and early twenties. And her husband and step-children also. 

God's ways are higher than ours, which is why we so often don't understand what He is doing. I believe that. But I'm sure going to miss her.

This Month's Giveaway...

Many of you may already have these books since they are not new releases, but I thought I'd remind you about them anyway. :) (And if you have read them, but not left a review on your favorite site, would you take time to do that for me? Honest reviews are always such a blessing!) Both books start one of my historical series. And both are currently free.

From My Heart...

I have a picture of my friend who is dying. She has no hair. She's flat on her back from weakness and pain. But her hands are raised in praise as our church group worshiped at her house with her and her family. At the end of the couch her husband sits with his hands raised in praise also. My heart is torn apart by this picture. Would I, in a similar circumstance, still be able to lift my hands in praise? I'm reminded of the verse from Job 13:15 that says "Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him..." Not because I think that God is the one killing my friend, but because that's the kind of heart I want to have. Even in the most difficult of circumstances, I want to be the type of person who would still lift their hands to the One who created us all. He is still worthy of praise, even now.
