A Writerly Blog
Revisionist History is troubling for an author like me. How so? My passion is to make Scripture and history come alive for my readers. And I truly believe those who don’t learn from the past, are bound to make the same mistakes in the future. And I am a truth teller. And a lover of history. And most frustrating of all . . .
As leaves fall and autumn turns towards winter, we are reminded to give thanks. To have a heart of gratitude. It’s so easy to complain rather than say thank you. Why is that?
Grumbling comes more naturally to us. Sometimes it even brings a sense of satisfaction. But then, after a while, discontent seeps in. The only way I have found to turn those dark complaining thoughts around is to be grateful. There is always someone who is less fortunate than us. When we bring them to mind, our situation doesn’t seem as hopeless.
The Four Types of Facebook Friends . . .
After being on Facebook for a number of years, I’ve realized there are four types of ‘friends’. Do you see yourself among them?
Did you know that there are over 130 million orphans in the world or that November is National Adoption month? Adoption is a beautiful reflection of God’s love, and for this very reason we want to celebrate it. Join us November 4 through the 10th in our online Facebook party as we celebrate adoption! Each of the featured authors has a connection to adoption somehow—whether it’s through personal adoption or it’s a topic in their book, and each is making it their goal for there to be one less orphan in this world.
Leading up to the party, we will be posting introductions of each author and some fun activities. Join in, and invite your friends! And to thank you all for celebrating with us, we’re offering a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky winner that will be awarded at the end of the party. Participate and have a chance to win!
Join us, and let’s celebrate adoption together November 4th through the 10th as we prepare our hearts for Orphan Sunday on November 11th. RSVP HERE.
These are the crazy dreams on my own bucket list. And they are all legit. Meaning, in the future, they are doable.
For years, I’ve heard the term, but never really knew where it originated from. I imagined it was a place to keep all your hopes and dreams safe— in a bucket.
Then I heard a few months back that such a checklist was to be accomplished before you, well— kicked the bucket.
I think I prefer my own definition.
So, I got to pondering (which I do quite often): why even have a bucket list? I thought of four reasons, but I’m sure there’s at least one more.
