Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
Last weekend my husband, daughter, and I joined family for a day at the beach. It was a beautiful day with enough breezes to keep you cool while warm enough that a dip in the lake was refreshing. Laughter and games filled our afternoon. The beauty of a party at the beach is the array of things to do.
Family members and friends visited in the picnic area to catch up on how their lives have changed since last seeing each other. The kids bopped from swimming to playing on the playground to playing with the assortment of sports equipment on and off all day. The smell of the lake, sound of children playing, and warmth of the sun made for a great day.
As I stood along the shore to watch the kids swim the new title of my book came to mind. I had an idea for a cover and could not wait to “play” myself. I walked back to the picnic area, grabbed my camera, and returned to the shore.
The pristine pallet of sand near the water’s edge seemed to be waiting for me to start writing in it and taking pictures. It was a blast. With a couple dozen photos, I decided I wanted one with a wave washing it away. Nearly thirty minutes of standing atop my writing with the camera ready, a wave accomplished my last task.
Here are a couple pictures from our day at the beach. The one selected for the cover though will be a surprise when the book is printed. I continue to write, revise, edit, and speak about my sister and how her kidnapping has affected my life as I wait. As I wait, I pray. As I pray, I listen. As I listen, I aim to be obedient. When I am obedient, I think God smiles.
What is God calling you to do today? How can you be obedient?
