I forgot to tell you guys that my local writers' group had a Devotional contest. And I won! There were two categories -- published writers and unpublished writers. I won for unpublished and my friend Robbie won for published. I have yet to read her entry about pie, though.
If you would like to read mine, go to Words for the Journey blog. It was such a nice validation when I really needed it. Of course, just because I can write a devotional doesn't mean I can write a novel.
