Keep 'em coming

Yesterday I received TWO contracts in the mail. I've just sold two more poems to Highlights for Children! This makes four of my poems that Highlights has accepted thus far.

Having my poetry published has been a life-long dream. And to have them published in Highlights, at one point in my life, seemed like it would never happen. I must have sent them over 30 poems before I sold my first one, but I kept at it. And it has paid off. Hurray!

I thank God for each of these little successes because it was Him who gave me this talent for weaving words. And it is His creation that most often inspires me.
