I just wanted to take a minute to wish all of my followers and fans a wonderful, safe, and joyful Christmas.
With the rush of the season, we sometimes forget that this time isn’t about the stuff. Sure, the stuff is good. The food is tasty. The presents are thrilling and exciting. The decorations are beautiful and captivating. The paper sparkles and the tree twinkles. Those things are wonderful, and I enjoy them all.
But if all of those were taken away, Christmas would still exist, because it is about love, and you can’t take Love away.
For God loved the world so much, that he sent his one and only son. And whoever believes in him will not die, but have life that lasts forever.
Thank you, God, for your gift of love.
I would also like to thank my wife, who has put up with more from me in the past year than any previous year. She is truly an amazing woman, and I love her very much.
And to my friends and extended family, Cheryl and I wish you all a merry Christmas. This year has been a trial, but you have all helped make it the best year ever.
And finally, to my fans. I really appreciate how many of you have sent me notes of encouragement and support. Yes, I’m still working on the final book in the Brodie series. And I appreciate your patience as things in my personal life have wedged themselves into my writing life. I’m making more progress, now, and I appreciate those that have stuck with me this long to find out how the story will end. I promise, it will be worth the wait.
