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.
Cookies and Cream Hershey kisses...
Are you asking yourself what a Hershey kiss and writing have in common? I hope so...
This analogy will only work if you like to eat chocolate of course yet if you know a chocolate addict - you should be able to relate.
I have always enjoyed eating Hershey Kisses. I've been known to start with only one kiss and before I know it - the entire bag is empty. Once I open the bag and the aroma of chocolate hits my senses - well, lets just say there aren't usually any leftovers.
This is like reading a good book - you start by opening the cover to read the preface and first chapter. The aroma of a good story starts to occupy your mind. You can smell a great story instantly.
You check the clock - you have thirty minutes before the kids get home or you have thirty minutes while your cherubs have their music lesson so you dive in - "Mom...hello? Mom...are we going home?" What is that noise - oh my goodness - the lesson can't be over you think to yourself. I just started reading.
This is the type of book I want to write - I want someone to open the cover and start reading the preface with an intention of reading more later - only to find themselves being awaken from their reading stuper with a hunger to read more.
Even though the bag of Hershey Kisses eventually runs out - the hunger for "just one more" doesn't seem to diminish as quickly.
The calories stay with us until we exercise in order to shed them. I pray my book ends leaving the reader hungry for one more chapter - and when they get to the end they have processed enough to satisfy their hunger with a slight craving for just one more - Heidi's story hasn't ended.
Eventually Heidi's case will close yet our lives will never be the same so there will always be one more chapter to write. The Cookies-n-Cream Hershey Kiss is my new favorite (next to the seasonal Pumpkin Spice) and I may need to lock them in my van so I don't gain ten pounds.
Extra weight and going up a pant size is never enjoyable yet devouring a good book and having one's eternal perspective increase - a blessing and gift from God. :)
Keep reading! I'll keep writing!
Thanks for being my prayer warriers! My personal deadline is slipping away - with the school year started - having difficulty devoting the necessary hours required for higher level writing and revising. I need to do a calendar of events and "schedule" my writing for October in INK. Ruth suggested it - yet the pencil erases and the other stuff took its place.
Pray I find the right balance to write!
