Stopping by!

by Diana Marie Winkler on November 13, 2016

Hello Everyone!

I hope this finds everyone well.

I have been working on my book..I AM A WOMAN OF VALUE – I AM A WOMAN OF WORTH – I AM HIS… and am happy to report that I am getting pretty close to having it published. I like to say I am on the runway with the engines running! I am self- publishing it with the great help of Mindy Kaleta of Kaleta Publishing, LLC. Mindy is showing me the “ins” and “outs” of self-publishing and I have to admit my eyes have glazed over a few times trying to take it all in! Thankfully, she shows such enthusiasm for this project that it keeps me motivated!

After much prayer I have decided to launch it after the first of the year. I am getting excited, but must confess I do get the butterflies as I move one step closer to its completion.

I ask for prayers as I continue to work on having one of my dreams come to fruition.

I am constantly thanking God for giving me this project.

I have other good news to report…..I went for my first mammogram since my lumpectomy last year and it came out clean!!!!!!!!! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!

I pray everyone has a very blessed Thanksgiving. I will be keeping all in my prayers.

The following is something Mother Teresa (Now Saint!) wrote and I keep a copy on my fridge.

You may have read it, but want to share……………………………………

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;

forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;

be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends, and some true enemies;

be successful anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;

be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;

build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, others may be jealous;

be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will forget tomorrow;

do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough,

give your best anyway.

For you see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; it was never between you and them anyway.

 I don’t know how many times I have had to read the words when I needed to stay focused on doing the right thing when the world, at times, is telling us it’s okay to let this or that slide. Staying true to the Word of God will bring true freedom.

May the Lord richly bless you and keep you in His care.

God bless to all.

Love and prayers…….Diana Marie…..The Shepherd’s Daughter®
