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.
Looking forward to the week ahead
The middle school musical has come to a close and so has the weekend. The sun is shining with beautiful lake effect snow decorating the sky. Although we missed Sunday school due to our slow moving this morning, the worship service and pastor’s message were refreshing. Once home Mags and I made lunch and then went to work.
Pesi Dinnerstein’s book inspired and motivated me to get rid of the clutter, or at least reorganize it. Furniture has been switched from one room to the other, boxes and drawers dumped and cleaned, and garbage bags of clutter taken to the trash bin.
As I attempt to organize my speaking and writing tidbits I am overwhelmed. On a day like today I find myself wishing for that extra room, an office; a place to leave my organized piles of thoughts, revisions, and outlines until my next writing block. Please don’t misunderstand, I’m more than appreciative for our humble home and love it. Thankfully organization is one of my strong suits and everything has a place. With most of these items tucked away and the last few spread around the living room I decide to retreat and write.
My mind is flooded with thoughts, Scriptures, and ideas. Possibilities to include in my first book, Where’s Heidi? The Search Begins and then a quick transition to my upcoming speaking engagements trigger a clever hook or just the right verse. With sticky notes and a notebook always nearby, the thoughts are captured and filed in the appropriate folder and bin.
My Sunday will conclude with dinner at my parents yet with some modification. Mary isn’t feeling well and went to bed after lunch, praying she is only tired yet her forehead is warming up as she sleeps. With Ed home from work, we are going to eat in shifts at my parent’s house so Mary can continue to rest. No more cleaning or organizing ~ it is time to rest and relax.
A new series starting tomorrow – be sure to check it out!
