True Love

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 4:9

News from the end of the earth...and Merry Christmas


Yes it's news from the end of the earth... as I dropped off the end of it yet again it seems huh. *cringe*

I know you can beat me with wet spaghetti I am guilty of being a bad blogger yet again!  But in my defense for not updating the blog for so long it is almost Christmas and thank the Good Lord I was actually swamped with work for the last month too. Which means it has been very hectic here and when I got done with work I just vegged out and didn't feel like doing much reviewing etc. But all the extra work coming in turned out extra good as I didn't have to charge one single present this year!!! I have NEVER been able to do since I got married 17 years ago until this year. I would at least have to charge several if not most of them and then pay the credit off once we got our taxes back. That's how it has been for us here as we truly do live week to week and check to check at my house. But thanks be to God not this year! I was so busy and got so much work that I didn't have to charge a single present AND I also got the bills paid too for which I was beyond grateful for! God is good people!!!

I also have some exciting news...well it's exciting to me and I hope it will be for others too someday at least. I want to share this partly because one - I am excited about it, and two - because if I make it known to others publicly I will feel more obligated to stick to it because of that very fact! I started writing a book today! The tentative working title for the moment (it might change in fact probably will lol) is Broken Vines. It's a historical romance set during the last days of the Civil War and shortly thereafter in East Tennessee.

I tried my hand at writing several years ago (actually I'm shocked to realize this but it was 7 or 8 years back or more now) on a couple of stories, but I never finished any of them. For one reason or another real life always seemed to be interfering and I finally just lost my will and enthusiasm to keep going on them. I had just about made up my mind that I wouldn't try writing anymore and put that dream away for good... when late last month this story popped into my head seemingly out of the blue. What floored me was that it was so vivid and detailed that really stopped in my tracks and I said well maybe I do need to give this one a shot! When I say detailed I mean the entire story line arc and main characters - right down to the names and what they looked like - were immediately there. Almost like a little movie in my mind. And it is a story that I would definitely want to read as a reader myself it someone else wrote something like this, so I think I at least need to give it my best try to make this one come to life on paper as it did in my head.

So there it is I am God willing taking the first steps (again and hopefully with much more success this time) to being an author. I do want to give a big thank you and shout out to Sue-Ellen Welfonder for listening to my idea and for her very kind encouragement and insight. God bless you dear you truly helped me make up my mind to give it one more try. 


Here is a sneak peak at what the two main characters look like (in my head anyway hehehe) meet Sgt. David Russell C.S.A and Rebecca Johnston...


So that's my news and an update on where I have been for the last half month. I hope you all are about ready for Santa it's almost here! A Very Merry Christmas to you and yours and God Bless us every one!
