Alone in Austin is ready for your Reading Pleasure

Jacklin runs the biggest cattle ranch in the county, but she's beginning to want a family of her own. She turns to an advice column she finds in the paper.
Dear Lovelorn,I am alone and tired of it. I own a ranch and you’d think with all the men I hire, there’d be one that I would want to marry. Or that would want to marry me. Truth is, they are all kind of scared of me. I’m Texas tough, but I have a heart that wants to pour out my love on the right man, and my own heart is dry and getting brittle. I need the love of a good man. Help me, please. I can drive, whip, and brand cattle, but I am at a loss on how to get a man.
Help me,
Alone in Austin

Dear Alone in Austin,
You have got a problem. Men don’t want to be branded by a strong woman. They need to see that you’re soft and frilly at heart and that you need a man to take care of you. I admit, you’d be a tough one for a man to want to walk down the aisle with. You didn’t say, but are you pretty in any way?
Here’s my advice. Try throwing away your whip and taking off your chaps and wear a womanly dress. Don’t yell and try speaking in a quiet, demure voice with words that would make a man feel like he was a king. And of course, we all know that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Forget about driving the beef and work on cooking it.
Yours Truly: The Lovelorn.

Jacklin might just find the love of her life.

Write On and Keeping Out of Trouble

This is the latest book I'm writing. Along with a few others. I'm  having fun writing all the stories on my schedule. And it's a good thing because I have a lot of stories to write.

Years ago, the Lord told me to sit down, write your stories, and stay out of trouble.

I have tried to abide with that word.  And as I look out at the digital landscape of twitter and fb, I can see why the Lord gave me this word.

There is drama to the right and hate to the left. Reason is out and feelings are in. And I don't want to get caught up in the middle. So I am writing and writing and writing.

These times we are in, remind me of the Rudyard Kipling poem IF.  If you can keep your head  

So I came up with some things to help me keep my head and keep me on track. And I went to God's Word for help.

First, There is nothing new under the sun.  The Poem IF was written in 1895 over a 125 years ago. Things have always been crazy.

2.  Philippians 4 (KJV) tells us what to think on.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
3. And then go to the Great Commandments given by Jesus  in Matt 22 35-40. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  
I don't know about you, but that is enough to keep me busy and out of trouble. My word for this year is love. And as you know, that's not easy when words are flying and people are angry. 
I hope you all have a wonderful year and can keep your head in these turbulent times.

Happy New Year! Now what to do with it

I love snow. This picture is from a few years ago. Today it is sunny, bright blue skies and in the sixties.  Not bad for winter. But I always love the snow when it comes. Here in my part of Texas, it's hit or miss. And we never have to shovel it.

So we have a new year and a new decade to work with now. I have big plans for 2020. Of Course, they are all subject to the Lord's Will. His way not mine.

I plan to write 30 books this year - so I'll be on my computer typing away.  But I also plan to enjoy this year and the wonderful people He has put around me. To sit outside when it's nice and have sweet chats with my husband. To work in the garden and watch plants grow and pretty flowers bloom. To read the Bible more and pray more. Can't ever have too much of God.

And then there is the forever New Years diet and resolutions.  I have cut out cokes and sweet tea. Although I might give myself a treat on Sundays.  So far, I've lost four pounds.  In addition, I am doing the intermittent fast. Eating between 10 AM and 6 PM  So far, it's working.

And do  I really need to say it - Exercise.  My goal is to walk a mile a day on the treadmill to start.  I did half a mile today.

Set goals and go after them. Life was meant to be lived not endured. Discover something you like to do. Write down things you want to accomplish. Big and small. And determine to do them.

However  you're going to use this new year, I pray that you and your endeavors will be blessed.
Now to the Bookshelf.
