Changing of Seasons

"My Secret Place", by Yvonne Ward

DEAR brothers and sisters,

Warm greetings in the love and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

For almost three years now, I have been writing on a regular basis the words which I feel the Lord has placed in my heart for you. The journey has been a remarkable one, and has affected me deeply.

I have received a number of requests throughout this time for these writings to be presented in a book form. The spiritual director of these writings has also urged me to do so.

To those who knock, the door will be opened. To those who listen, they will hear.

As in the past, if the Lord gives me a specific word or teaching to pass on to you, I will certainly do so. But most of my focus now will be upon the book—and the changes which He is bringing to my family…
