Hello, dear readers! First off, thank you to everyone who has been praying for me. Your prayers and comments meant more than I can say. I am doing better, thankfully. I found some great exercises that have helped a lot. Unfortunately, I re-hurt myself a bit yesterday—I’m too impatient to get back to doing everything I used to xD—but I’m not too discouraged because now I know that it can heal. I’d still really appreciate prayer that I’d recover completely. Oh, and I’ve updated my book list, if you care to see what I’ve been reading.
Second, I’m going to be participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this July. For those of you who don’t know what that it is, it’s a version of NaNoWriMo, where writers are challenged to write a 50K novel each November. Camp NaNo is similar, except that you can set the wordcount to whatever you wish, and you don’t have to work on a novel. I was hoping to reach 30K, but because of my arm, I’ve drastically reduced my goal to 10K. Not what I was hoping, but I’m thankful that I can write at all, even if it’s only a hundred words a day. So, because of this (and because I’m going on a mission trip the last week of the month), I won’t be blogging in July. My arm simply can’t handle that much typing yet. Hopefully, by August, my arm will be fully healed, and I’ll be able to return to my regular schedule. Until then, know that I definitely miss you guys. Thanks so much for your patience and support.
Here’s a quote that I’ve repeated over and over when I felt like asking God why this was happening:
I blessed your name in beauty,
In fear I still must sing.
I blessed your glorious name in truth,
I bless it now in doubt
I need no answer. Do not answer.
You are true and you
Are right, and your name is mighty.
Your name is my life.
By your name I accept my doom.
~ Moonblood, Anne Elisabeth Stengl
