For My Internet Friends

Hi Folks,

I received the following ecard about five minutes ago from "an Internet friend". Now I don't want to sound shallow or anything but I gotta tell ya ... I don't recall saying more than a general hello to this person. If I have, it would have been under a different email address because I do not recognize the one from which I get emails and ecards. Everytime I attempt to communicate with this person via email to find out more about them ... I never get a response, so I've relatively given up. However, it always seems that he seems to send an ecard that's right on time or on target ... if you will.

His request for today's card is that I share it with others, so I immediately thought of you ... my Internet friends!

Oh and did I mention the kicker that made it extra special? Playing in the background is the instrumental version of one of my favorite praise and worship songs "Give Thanks" For those of you who don't know it, I've linked to a demo version from the Praise Hymn Web site so you can hear the words and take a moment in your day to "give thanks".

Peace,
Dee

P.S. Now I know someone out there is thinking "Internet stalker" warning signs, but call me crazy ... I've started to see him as my Internet angel always there with a word of encouragement. So I guess the moral of the story is that we need to be aware when we communicate with others on the Internet, whether it be via blog, email or IM, we're making contact with real people. We never know who we touch or how we impact others ... sometimes a hello or a :oD makes the world of difference.




Somehow in this great big world

I found my way to you

My friend across the computer lines

my heart, my soul, that's who.




You try to make me smile

with the mail you send my way.

You never fail to drop a line

each and every day.




Whenever I have hurried home

with something, I must share,

I find it just so comforting

that you are always there.





Encouragement you give me

and a friendship that is true.

I'm glad my soul, while reaching out,

found someone like you.



Have A Wonderful Day

Thanks For Being There

For the Exhibitionist in You

As a former street vendor and flea market connoisseur I know exactly how hard it is to operate and appear to be the professional you are without functional trade show displays that suit your needs. Picture a book signing where the wind lifts and carries away a book every ten minutes or so. Yup ... true story, been there done that.

So if you're about to show up a bit of the exhibitionist in you ... make sure you don't use any old thing, go for the display that works for you.

DAILY READ: Covenant Relationships



But I will establish My covenant with you, and you will enter the ark - you and your sons and your wife and your sons' wives with you. ~ Genesis 6:18

The Bible is filled with covenants made between God and people. Six of those covenants were made with Old Testament figures: Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, and David. The seventh was made with His own Son, Jesus Christ. God is always the strongest partner in a covenant relationship.

God made a covenant with Noah in order to preserve the human race. This covenant involved Noah's participation by building an ark. He'd never built an ark before. He'd never had a boat. It was a totally new concept to Noah and the rest of the world. Why would he need a boat in a dry land?

Noah did not have to invent the ark; God gave him the plans-in specific dimensional detail. He did not have to gather the animals-God led them into the ark. God even closed the door when they all came on board. God made it rain to prove why the ark was needed.

The covenant provided all Noah needed to complete his mission in life. When God spoke to Noah to do this thing, he needed only to respond to God's call to do it. Noah could rest in knowing the covenant made with God was going to be fulfilled if he fulfilled his part.

If you have entered into a covenant relationship with God, you too can be assured that God will uphold His part of the covenant relationship. He is committed to fulfilling His covenant with you and to fulfill His purposes in and through your life. It only requires one thing on your part-obedience. He will even provide grace and faith to you to help you fulfill your part of the covenant.

Each of us has a covenant with God. But we also enter covenants with others in our personal and business lives. How are you doing in fulfilling covenants to others? God has given us the example to follow. Ask God if you have any unfulfilled covenants you need to honor. He has called you and me to be covenant keepers.

The one who calls you is faithful and He will do it (1 Thessalonians 5:24).

BOOK CLUBS PLEASE FEEL FREE TO POST THIS ON YOUR WEBSITE...

Donna Hill Promotions invites you to join us in a weeklong jamboree that will take place on December 4, 2006 until December 9, 2006, everyday from 9am to 9pm. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday will be regular chats about books that are being dropped during the month of December. Wednesday will be throw back day where we will discuss any book that came out during the 2006 year. Friday will be the day we discuss future releases as well as give away a very special gift basket.

We are inviting ALL published authors including self-published, as well as e-book published authors to participate. Any author who wishes to participate has until November 8, 2006 to contact Missy Brown with Donna Hill Promotions at misherald@yahoo.com to confirm that they are interested in participating in this virtual chat.

We at DHP do understand that there are many people who work regular 9 to 5 jobs so that they may not be able to readily participate in a live chat, so the authors will have to hold chats as well as check message boards during the 9 to 5 shift.

More information will be forth coming on all the particulars of how the chats will work, the author lineup, as well as where we will be holding chats and discussions.

Please pass this along to your author friends and your reading groups, as we want this to be a nice big party! All we ask for any participating author is to donate two autographed books to place in our gift baskets. Other than that the whole event is free to everyone.


Thanks,

The Donna Hill Promotions Team
