The year is now 2009 and the Holy Spirit had been nudging me to complete what I had begun back in 2007.
It took me awhile to get back into writing because I really lacked motivation, I think the "enemy" was trying to steal my joy and God's blessings over me. However, I eventually did (with the Holy Spirit's nudging) and in the fall of 2009, I had 3 more stories completed (Nitti Gritti Smitty, Mr. Pitt & Lickety's Split, and Vinny Vain Liked to Complain). The completion of the 3 additional stories completed the entire series, which would later be named the Little Life Lessons; Love, Grace and Blessings - Short Stories For All God's Children series! The date was November 2, 2009.
Side note: On October 9, 2009, the Holy Spirit spoke words to me and gave me a prophesy about the books. I will not write what that prophesy is at this particular time, but I do hold it near and dear to my heart. The prophesy, coupled with the Lord's grace and strength, is what keeps me motivated and moving forward!
