The King is Coming!

I took this picture and didn't notice the crown and face. But it's there and it wasn't photo-shopped.

Now just because the clouds formed a crown and a face doesn't mean anything. Not really.

But those of us called by His Name, we are to know the seasons. He said we wouldn't know the day or the hour, but we would know the season,

For me, it's a reminder to look up. Keep my thoughts and mind on Jesus. For whether He returns during my lifetime or not, I will meet Him.

All will stand before Him. The only question then will be if He knows you.

Matthew 7:21-23 and Matthew 25:31-46

We live on this earth for a short time, but eternity is written in our hearts. Today, live as if you will live forever with your eternal destination in mind.

Be wise. Seek the Kingdom while it may be found.

John 3:16New King James Version (NKJV)
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

I've got a COVER to show you.

All right, I've been working hard and I really enjoy it.
One of things I love about writing is getting the covers for my new books.
So, I contacted Erin at for a cover for my newest story in the Mail Order Brides of Hickory Stick Series

Want a peek at the cover?

Isn't it beautiful!  Now back to the keyboard. I have a story to finish and put in that book cover.

Awesome ~ Sometimes when our hearts soar so high, past the realm of earthly sky and into Heaven's kingdom, our tears are set free as our spirit longs for home.


$$$ Money Matters

Money~ Money~ Money

Yes, we have all heard how money is bad. The root of all evil many would say. However, the truth of scripture actually says: 

1 Timothy 6:10 (KJV)
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: ...

Money, in itself, is no more evil than the things you can purchase with it. Food, cars, candy, etc.
But it is the love of money that corrupts. And that wayward love and idolization of money can infect rich and poor alike.

But money does matter. I write books with the hope of making money to pay bills and some day set my husband free to retire from working at WalMart. 

In truth, money is a great motivator. I have to admit that even though I write for the Lord, if I had more money than I knew what to do with, I'm not sure how much I would actually write.

Money, and the need for it, drives most of us to work. We need it. Would be nice if it wasn't so, but the world we live in demands it. Money is the grease that keeps the world and most of us going.

So use your money wisely, recognizing that it is but a tool for the world we live in.
