Celebrating a Victory

Missy Tippens, here. We were celebrating in our household yesterday. My daughter's cross country team won the county-wide competition! There were four middle schools participating, and her school earned the most points (well, actually, I think it was the lowest points to win). :)

This isn't the best photo since it was taken on my phone, plus it was really bright outside. But it's a photo of the girls' team with their trophy. The boys won also. It was a gorgeous day, perfect for running and cheering on the kids.

I'm also celebrating receiving my author copies for my November Love Inspired, A Forever Christmas! I just love the beautiful cover!! (You can see it in the slide show to the left.) Oh, and I also found out yesterday that it got 4 stars from Romantic Times Magazine!!

What about you? Have you celebrated anything recently that you'd like to share? Let us celebrate with you!

Patti Jo, I also meant to say thanks on the cover. Steeple Hill did such a great job! They got it exactly like I envisioned it and even added the window pane and cute boys!

Hi Missy!
WOW! Congrats to your daughter! That's awesome : )

I agree about the cover, it's gorgeous. Can't wait for it!

I am celebrating everything with my program right now. It really is progressing. For example I have 12 kids/families participating now!!
I also found out today that I was accepted into the Jazz Choir at our school : ) I had to audition last week(which I HATE doing by the way). Only 9 people got in and I'm one of them! I was praying so hard about this because I really wanted in! Lol!
God certainly is good!
