Hi Bernie,
With the search engines it can really be a bit of a waiting game. Even though you did successfully submit your sitemap to Google, it will still take some time for your site to be indexed by Google; this means that for now the only way to get to it is to use the url in the address bar.

This won't last forever, and every new website goes through it. I would suggest doing some general SEO (search engine optimization) on your site. Here's an article that might be helpful, SEO Checklist Part I.

Hope this helps a bit.
