A Wonderful Kind of Busy

Homestead Sunrise

It has been over a month since I have posted anything. I do apologize. But I have an excuse, exhaustion! (I giggle.) Yes there is exhaustion. That part is true. But the real reason is a wonderful kind of busy! Most times busy is associated with stress or something not pleasant or enjoyable.

Writing with Him

Can you imagine writing with God?  I thought I could until I got myself bogged down in the 2019 NaNoWriMo challenge. I almost quit a few times during the thirty-day marathon.  So what’s the verdict?  Did my fingers walk across the finish line? Continue reading “Writing with Him”
