I normally don't post about my personal life. When I started this blog I wanted to do three things.
Glorify God in order to bring people closer to Him,
Give information about my new releases
Help promote other authors.
I hope I've been able to do that. Keeping this blog up to date (posting 3 times a week) has taken quite a bit of my time, and I'm so grateful for those of you who are faithful to read it and leave comments. It makes me feel like my time isn't wasted. As a writer, I'm required to be on as many social networks as I can: Facebook, Goodreads..etc... but I have to tell you these things go against my nature. I prefer to just write my stories and stay to myself! I've never been a very social person. And I find these marketing avenues very taxing. If there's anything of particular interest to you that you'd like me to blog about, I'd love to hear your ideas!
But I wanted to tell you that my eldest daughter is getting married next month (acutally in 3 weeks) and it's such a special time for me. My entire family if flying in from Florida for the event. My mother, sister, niece, my brother, his wife and their 3 children. Over 100 people are attending the ceremony and there will be a full dinner and dance reception afterward. So, not only have I been trying to write my next novel, I've been dealing with tons of wedding preparations. But it reminds me of how wonderful and special weddings are. (I do write romance novels, after all) The union of 2 people with a promise to love and stand by each other forever. Now that's a good cause for a party! Which also reminds me of the Wedding we will be attending in Heaven one day. The union of Christ and His church. Now that's going to be a party! I hope to see you there. I wonder what flavor the cake will be?
Here's a picture of me, a great friend of mine, and my daughter at her Bridal shower. I'm in the pink shirt.
I pray your weekend is blessed!
