“Ever brothers. Ever young. Ever summer.”
– Charles Krauthammer
(One of the reasons this quote resonates deep within my soul…-not only did Charles Krauthmmer live with strengh, passion and courage…
he also loved well.)
To my sister, Jerri Lynn…
Jerri Lynn Charron gave several weeks of her summer and spent hundreds of hours with me day and night while we completely re worked
It was a labor of L O V E. The most beautiful part was that she did not even know I had already dedicated BETROTHED to her before she ever began. Happy Happy Birthday to you Jerri Lynn!
With all my love, Lucy
While the publishing world is still relatively new to me, one aspect is not. The importance of one’s WORD. The Bible says, Jesus is the WORD. It is serious to give someone our “word.”I was promised that books would be shipped by a certain date. When our manuscript was ready to go to print, it had been approved by one the best editors in the industry, professional proof readers, and signed off by several others.
Yet, my sister. Jerri Lynn Charron was adamant that it NOT be printed until each of us examined a printed proof thoroughly. Whew! While that was part of the plan and process I had no earthly idea what kind of battle was facing us . Somewhere along the way WORDS had been twisted, left out and vital links broken. How did this happen? No one seems to know. . . . Later, I have come to learn about a ‘twisting of spirits’ referred to in the Old Testament called Leviathan…It seems to be more prevalent today than ever especially because of the increasing use of technology…i.e. ‘fake news’, scrambled text messages, lost emails, etc. The enemy is alive and well and is trying every strategy to stop this truth from going forth. While this did cause significant delays, Jerri Lynn gave the following weeks of her summer and hundreds of hours with me day and night while we completely re worked BETROTHED: Committed to Love, Light & LIFE! It was a labor of L O V E. The most beautiful part was that she did not even know I had already dedicated BETROTHED to her before she ever began.
Happy Happy Birthday to you Jerri Lynn!
With all my love,
Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
Ecclesiastes 4:9 KJV
