Three Bits Of News







My kids know how to give great gifts! They came over on Mother's Day for a while so I could cuddle my grandson and they handed me a beautifully wrapped present. I opened it to find a super cute, framed photo of my son and his baby son...but that's not all! I opened the next bundle of wrapping tissue to discover this HUGE stack of printed baby photos!! 

I may have done a bit of hinting, ranting, verbal moaning, wondering out loud about how sad it is not be able to frame and hold the current method of photo sharing. With everything in digital form it felt like I would be missing out on some great pictures to     enjoy if my computer crashed or became obsolete. (I have tapes of my kids baby talk but  no way to hear them. So see? It can happen.)

Thank you kids, my heart is so happy about this pile of pics!!

In other news, this gorgeous hawk has been visiting us a couple times a day for the past few weeks. I love to watch him sit there looking for his next little rodent meal. But he gave me real surprise the other day when I saw that he had a snake in his claws as he sat there on the fence. THEN he rose up and flew over my house with the snake dangling! Yikes, I hope he did not drop it on top of my house and I am thankful he did not deposit it in our swimming pool!

And in still MORE news, I am back to work on my little book! I am once again excited and hopeful about it. I still have a long way to go but can see the light at the end of the tunnel. This WIP (work in progress) is based on many encounters and experiences I have had with God as He went overboard to convince me that He loved me. I believe now that all of these encounters were also to let me know that His love for us is supposed to be my life message and I have tried to express that in every way I can think of here on this blog. 

I got stuck somewhere along the line while working on it last year. I was trying to write about important and life-changing events between God and me over the years, but the deep spiritual awareness of The Messenger Himself was not here as I wrote. I was recording facts and stories but that's it. So I hit a wall of dissatisfaction and doubt. But in recent weeks I have found myself in this little office writing with tears streaming because the events in my true stories felt close and alive and as if they happened today. What a difference! Now I am so excited for you to read this book! It carries an important message that can impact every single reader in one way or another. Can't believe I just said that for all to see but I am going to leave it right here. :) 

Who knows how this is going to end up?

  1. Susie: I'm glad you enjoyed your Mother's Day gift. Writing is hard. I get stuck and give up on something more often than I like to think about. Keep at it, it will come to you.

    1. Writing is hard, you are right. It has been a rude awakening for me to realize that just because I love writing, it does not make it an easy thing to do with intention.

  2. What a wonderful Mother's Day gift. Treasure those pictures. I worry about that too...we don't print pictures much anymore. Someday there won't be any pictures for our grandkids and future generations to look at and wonder...
    Love the hawk...glad he didn't drop the snake on your head or pool!
    Super glad you are "back at work" on your "WIP". Praying that God will direct your heart and mind and spirit and that the words will flow. I can't wait to read it. I KNOW it will be SUPER wonderful, because it comes from your heart. Holding you up in prayer sweet friend. So proud of you and happy for you.

    1. Thanks Pamela. Coming from the heart is key in anything good we do, isn't it? Thanks for the prayers.
