Book project update

 Ok guys, I know I originally announced my current book project completion date to be 3-4 years, but I don’t believe it will take that long. Depending on if I self-publish or go through a publishing agency, I now think it will be more like 1-3 years. Just a brief update here!

Book Announcement

📚 Hello Guys,

It is now time to announce my current book project. Although I have been very hesitant to write my story/testimony, and somewhat embarrassed over some decisions in my life; however, it has been said by a few that I have an awesome testimony from birth to my current life. Thus, my current book project is my life story and testimony of survival due God's intervention throughout my life. My life has been a rollercoaster ride from birth. Many, many times God did intervein and I am most grateful for his intervention in my life, as most times I knew not of His intervention until looking back on my life. Things are better now, just still going through yet another season in life. I have learned, seasons in life will always be and to remain faithful no matter what season I am in. One thing I know now, that took my whole life up till now to learn, is no matter my struggle that God loves me and is looking out for me; He is at work in my life. Just learning to keep in mind that no matter what I am going through to put my trust and faith totally in the Lord. He has given me every reason to trust Him and my faith in Him grows everyday in my journey back home to God. As one growing spiritually, honestly don't know how I would have I gotten through some moments in my life had God/Lord not been by myside as the most awesome-partially-invisible God He is. From a very hard entry into this world to an older single mother with all children grown and no mate, my life has been and still is to His glory. 

Want mention book title at this point and probably want until published. However, if you want you can take a peek at the first two chapter's outline below. Still in first draft; thus, this outline may change a bit. But, it gives a brief look so far. It will be around 3-4 years before completion and published, I hope 🤞. DE

 Joyous is Christmas

Tis this season of aliveness
As we celebrate our Savior's birth
To this season joyous is Christmas

Filled with love and forgiveness
As relationships kindle in rebirth
Tis the season of aliveness

A time of the year given in wiseness
As our Savior's birth gave our life worth
To this season joyous is Christmas

Gathered in warmth of love that's showered
Given in the spirit of the season
Joy fills the air upon each it flowered

Keeping in mind this season the reason
To this one's soul leaps in joy abound
For His return we observe preseason

In the spirit of Christmas peace surround
Tis this season of aliveness
We honor this day our King now crowned
To this season joyous is Christmas

Thoughts: This season remember the reason for the season is the birth of Jesus Christ who gave His life for us so we may live eternally with Him. Sometimes the best gift you can give is the gift of giving in love. For instance: I bought part of my grandchildren's gifts in bulk. I had some extras that I gave to a co-worker in helping her with her grandchildren's gifts as she was struggling to get gifts for her grandchildren; of course I gave her a gift, as well.  Always remember in giving to give in love this season where joyous is Christmas!

A Poem for Thought!

  Pretty Awesome World

In this place there's much I've adored
From birds in the air to waters below
Thank You for a pretty awesome world, Lord

Seeing what You created I'm floored
Your thoughts of beauty surely does show
In this place there's much I've adored

As to our needs in this place You poured
Food, clothing, and a place to rest bestow
Thank You for a pretty awesome world, Lord

Although hard to cope this place sometimes
I've learned to the good to look upon
As the good outweighs the bad oftentimes

Happy here is what your view based on
I view the beauty You made of plenty
The love You gave us I mean, c'mon

A fabulous world than most of any
In this place there's much I've adored
Grateful to You I am of many
Thank You for a pretty awesome world, Lord

Thoughts: Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in our struggles or in our luxury or all that lays in between (what ever the case may be), that we forget just how beautiful this place we live. Happy here really does depend on one's view of the world we live. Sure sometimes it can be hard, very hard; but if all one sees is that then of course it will affect one's happiness. I live a struggling life, but still am happy to live in such a beautiful place and do appreciate what ever the Lord gives me. Life itself is a reason to be happy. We live in a world created by a God that had our well-being in mind, and the beauty He gave us is pretty awesome.
