Blessings or Burdens

DSCN9570It’s spring! How can I NOT be happy? Seriously. There are green buds on the trees and tulips and blossoms on the fruit trees. My grass is looking alive again after having the tromped on, beat-up look of winter. I’m working on revisions and edits for another story that keeps me smiling because there are all new characters and plot twists from what I’ve worked with on the Bending Willow Trilogy for the last five years. Life is good.

My cute daughter who’s in South Korea wrote me yesterday and made me smile even more. It helped that she sent pictures of pretty flowers in Korea so Continue reading

Unmasking a Prince

I always look forward to reading a new book by Jennifer Moore. In the past, I’ve reviewed Becoming Lady Lockwood and  Lady Emma’s Campaign  by her and both stories had characters I came to adore. Her newest regency romance was the same. In this one, Meg has sailed from colonial America (Charleston) to sacrifice herself upon the altars of the English ton in hopes of ensnaring a rich man to marry and save her merchant family from financial ruin during the time when England has just declared war upon America and is seizing merchant ships and forcing men into the English army.

They tell me I was in a hit-and-run, but I can’t remember what happened that night. All I know is that I woke up with pictures in my pocket, a card from one of those photo booths in the mall.

Because He Lives

I love Easter because of the hope and life it brings, both physically with the new buds and flowers as life soars into trees and vegetation once more after winter, and spiritually with the message of hope our Savior’s resurrection instills in my heart, reminding me that there is light and life because He lives. Hope you enjoy this short video and remember Christ this Easter and always! Because He lives, we have hope for a brighter future. Because He lives, we will live again after the winter of our mortal life. Because He lives, we can change and be better. That knowledge brings me joy!
