12:34 and the order of things

It’s 12:34, again. Lately, I’ve noticed that when I’m cognizant of the time, it’s 12:34 — AM or PM. One two three four. Maybe it means something, or maybe I should be occupying my thoughts with more significant and important things. But then perhaps, I’m being made aware of the proper order of things. Lately, my patience has been sprinting past me.
PIOUS has finally started seeing the light of day as buzz is proliferating across the internet and it’s appearing at many online stores for pre-order. Amazon released it as “available” for 48 hours last week and a few people got an order in before the link returned to “pre-order” status. The official release date is October 1.
As I got boxes of my own copies last week, I couldn’t help but think of how significant these boxes were to the order of things. My publisher, Two Harbors Press, started editing PIOUS back in February and it seems like it’s taken forever to bring it to market to share with you. There’s been two postponed release dates and three canceled festival appearances. Along the way, friends and supporters have encouraged me to be patient and trust that God’s plan is better than my own. I can’t say that I’ve come along quietly but I’m on board now. I’m not sure of where this ride will take me but my excitement has officially begun. Care to join me?

    I can just picture you… mouth dry, heart pounding out of your chest, can’t catch your breath…mind racing as you see PIOUS in the box, reaching in to pick
    PIOUS up, feeling its weight, bringing it so close to your face its smell impacts
    you and overwhelms you and when you close your eyes you swear you can taste it.
    Like an old friend and a new lover all rolled into one.

    I’m buckled in…begin.

    Congratulations Kenn.

    You said something right there about God’s order of time. As a self-proclaimed impatient person I can certainly relate, and your point is so valid…your thoughts serve as my own reminder that in due time everything happens as it should. And in perfect order! Besides, now that your first baby has been birthed the siblings to follow should be a piece of cake. Keep up the great work and congrats on your first born. 😉
