Barbara got a really cool haircut, and for part of the weekend I was so far gone I did not recognize her.
Not recognize THIS lovely face?????
It was really the kind of thing that, when you're lucid, makes you want to give up. Barb says that I did wonder how long I could keep this up.
But I'm still here, and it's partially thanks to a symbol of hope, a small red rock that I found in the yard last week, and plaed next to my computer. It's a deep red, and is startlingly heart-shaped.
A long time ago, I prayed to God to send signs to give me hope, and there was this voice in my ear..."What kind of signs?"
Oh, He wants me to specific! "Well, I said, aloud, something red."
"Yeah. Bright red, not New-Mexico-rust red."
Huge supernatural sigh.
And then red things started turning up, off things where I would not expect them.
Once I saw a piece of plasticized paper, a really small one, and for a reason I couldn't tell bent down to pick it up. It was part of a label from a water bottle, and when I spread it out..."Red Rock Bottling".
God apparently has a sense of humour, and I still have the label.
And now there is this heart-shaped rock.
It's not yet time to quit.
I do ask that you be patient with my slow replies to your comments (which we treasure). I'm trying to stay caught up.
Still hoping to get the new and improved version of Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart up and running in the near future. Just haven't had the energy to do it yet...but if you would like to read it, please say so in your comment and I'd be glad to send you a PDF (which should fit your Kindle).
Marley update... been moved to a sanctuary, and Bay County will revise their 'dangerous dog' codes.
If you can, please do leave a comment. I am trying to answer all, and I am failing, but please know this - I read and treasure each one.
Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links.
