Off the recliner!
Friday, August 10, 2018 by Charlotte Snead

I am sleeping (with my husband) in our own bed! From glory to glory. He has insisted on sleeping on the couch whiIe have been in the recliner, so I feel better for him. And—thanks to my awesome grandson—I am using my computer upstairs—with the drawer underneath, I’m able to type two handed. Big steps forward!

My wonderful publisher, Van Rye, is moving mountains to market for me—never has anyone done so much (and I have published with four publishing houses). He has written a 75 page promo for the book. If you want me to send it to you, email me at [email protected] So far no one has written a review for Winslow Farm (Hint, hint—Go on Amazon.)

I find as I move and exercise more, I’m hurting more, but no pain, no gain, right? Every day in every way, I’m getting better and better, but I feel useless while Joe works constantly, mowing, weeding—he has the house and yard looking wonderful while I slowly get back to doing a few dishes. I even put a wash in today. Folks at church comment on my progress as they onloy see me from week to week, but I’m not a patient person, and it seems a snail’s pace to me. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.

Blessings

Jesus only rebuked his disciples for lack of faith—oh, and not allowing the children to come to Him—saving his rebukes for religious leaders who were hypocrites. After feeding five thousand and then four thousand, how could his disciples fret over no bread on their sail across the lake? The Master could feed thirteen men if he had fed thousands! Yet I faltered over less than that last week.

My blog masters called me last Monday, asking if I knew my website was down. No. We worked all morning to discover why, knocking on closed doors. Word Press had closed my site, handing it off to another company. Me of little faith wept. I am launching a new book. A Place to Live came out last month and I’m in the midst of marketing it. All my marketing has the old website name on it. Didn’t God know this?

Of course He did, and by the end of the day my wonderful blog masters at Celebrity Web Design had a new one set up, one that I own: charlottesnead.com

 How cool is that? Just my name. I didn’t even know I could do that. God can do exceeding abundantly. So I downloaded all my subscribers and notified them of the name change. Since that time, I have doubled them! Thank you, God. Like the father I cry out: I believe, Lord, help Thou mine unbelief. Forgive me.
