The Magic Pencil

(The way this book began)

I had been out of work for several months and was feeling worried. My husband and friends were encouraging me to write, but my practical mind could not make sense of taking the time away from job searches. So I prayed for a sign -- a clear, definite, easy-to-understand sign. And then I forgot about it.

During my early morning walk the next day, something on the ground caught
my eye. I still have a hard time believing
it, yet there it was: a big orange pencil,
18 inches long and about an inch and a half in diameter!

The pencil still sits atop my computer monitor, and continues to remind me that
we all have access to a Power I cannot define. Ask and you shall receive -- it really works!
