A lot has happened…and changed since my last blog post. Almost a year later and where to begin. Okay this entry will not even try to get us all caught up. I say us all because this blog is just as much for me (and my kids and grandchildren who may read it one day) as for any one out there who stumbles on it and shares a few moments of your own precious time with me and my thoughts.
So my new leases are… as a result of moving three states north (a home lease), which just has a ‘new lease on life’ feel to it. I have commented to a few friends that it feels like a ‘working’ vacation. Our home is comfy and cozy, surrounded by breathtaking mountain views, more than I imagined it would be. So much to be grateful for…and I am that!
There are so many facets to my life right now that beg to be unscrambled from these letters under the fingers on my keyboard…to blog posts and ultimately a very old and often forgotten partially written book manuscript. The writer in me has lain dormant for way too long. Things that I’ve been commissioned to do and say have been shelved in my heart and mind. And now I admit that it’s been a bit painful at times. Cuz it hurts…to let someone down. I’ve let myself down.
But wait. Despite this most recent bout of procrastination in my life, I am happy to report a major accomplishment a few months ago. Fourteen years ago I wrote a book (after starting the other one mentioned above). It is a true story. It is heart wrenching at times yet full of faith and proof of my faithful God. Innocent…yet 5 1/2 months till Freedom is now published as a paperback and available as an ebook.
So I challenge myself to be more productive (getting settled into a new home around the holidays and entertaining five additional guests – mostly teens – Christmas week doesn’t count!) as inspiration nudges my brain and fingers. Thank the Lord that laptops have replaced parchment, feather quill and ink!
Until next time…keep on treadin’ on high…places. (Habakkuk 3:19)
