1st Place in Preditors & Editors Poll

 (Updated 14th January)

As some of you may know, my dear friend  Sharon was due for a major heart operation Tuesday, but it was put back Wednesday and then delayed further until today (Thursday)  I have access to Sharon's Blog since I put up the pictures for her, so I thought the easiest way to keep people up to date with what's going on would be to start a post here, where you can leave messages for her.

Your Prayers would be so much appreciated.  She's been through so much and is so brave and determined as well as talented. I was able to speak to her on the 'phone last night and she sends her love and thanks to everyone who's been praying and sending messages over the last few days.

In case you didn't see Sharon's Editor, Lori Graham's comment,
I'd just like to add that her story in the WRP 'Jewel Of The Night' series  'Charade of Hearts' took first place for best short Romance in the Preditors & Editors Poll.
(It's the one starring  Oliver)   It's a wonderful story, full of suspense and romance. Many thanks on Sharon's behalf to everyone who voted for it.

Please  keep praying for her to be able to recover from
 this operation with Faith and Courage,  and soon be on the road to recovery.

Witchy Woman said...

Hi Sharon,

I'm praying for you, and I'm praying for your family because I know hospitalizations can be equally difficult on both patient and loved ones.

Please get better quickly. You have "NO IDEA" the kinds of things that rogue, Oliver, has been up to. Well, I'm sure you'll hear all about it in the media. Lol. Just injecting some humor, here. And do pardon the injecting pun.

With so many well-wishers, 2012 will have no choice BUT to grant you a healthy and happy rest of the year.

Get well soon!
Love, Susan

Hi Susan (Witchy)

Thanks so much for the well wishes for Sharon and her family, I know she'll be really touched by the concern and good wishes everyone's sending.

Laurean Brooks said...

Sharon, You keep fighting. We all agree you are the feistiest, spunkiest lady we know. With all the prayers going up and the love sent your way, you should be up and at it in no time.

Psst! Is Oliver waiting on you hand and foot? I hope he's not off on one of his tropical vacations. I can just see him riding the waves. LOL.

I love you and I pray for you several times a day. God has bigger plans for you.

Soon you will be able to sing these lyrics to a popular gospel song... "What once looked like a mountain's just a hill...from heaven's point of view." (Beautiful Song. I wish you could hear it.)

Hold to Jesus hand and rest in His arms.

Hugs and Blessings,

Hywela Lyn said...

Hi Laurean

Thanks for your lovely message - as I keep saying, Sharon will be so touched when she's well enough to read all these loving and encouraging thoughts.

Please keep the prayers going everyone, they do get through, I know!
