July always brings with it much to celebrate. My birthday, then son-in-law, Bryan's birthday; grandsons Andy and Titus's birthday and the birthday of our nation. So all July babies get fireworks. Neat, huh? The family seems to be doing fine. Kim is looking for a house; Kelly is enjoying her summer off from school and Daren spends more time at his beach house than he does his home in the mountains. Everyone is in good health and the Lord is blessing. So thankful he is in charge of our lives and I pray that the kids realize this and keep their hearts tuned towards HIM because all this goodness can change in the blink of an eye. We are not promised tomorrow so live today serving him and loving your family.
I actually have five (5) contracts now. No, I won't be getting rich but my name is out there and just maybe someone will read something I've written and pass the word along to someone else and my readership will grow. How's that for a run-on sentence? I love to read and I love to write. I just wish I didn't NEED the money I make from writing. I think the words would flow more freely...you know....creative juices and all. My birthday is the fifth and I feel like I'm running out of time. Seems like they come faster and faster. If I'm not very careful and guard my thoughts I tend to think I'll carry most of my potential to the grave. Depressing, huh? But, that's where you find most potential. However, I fully intend to reach my potential-barring tiredness, health issues, brain deadness and blank screens. Those things are my enemy. And there is scripture to go along with all of them. If I will adhere to them, I will be a conqueror. Because the Lord makes a way when there is no way. Have a great fourth of July.

Well, I guess it's time to get serious about blogging so I can promote my own books. Lot's of new things are happening in the publishing world; some things making it harder than ever for unknowns like myself and exciting things for others. So now, I will have the added job of learning to navigate new media outlets as well as time spent each day visiting websites that aid in said promotions. Even though I'm older, I think I'm up to the challenge. I thought by now I would be slowing down and settling in to a slower more calm routine. What's actually happened has been a change in lifestyles, a push to become healthier so I can succeed at this new pace and a new zeal to accomplish more for Christ in the time I have left. So please bear with me as I become computer savvy and if I come to mind, breathe a quick prayer for my sanity. Thanks. I hope you enjoy following this journey.
