Anyone else notice that time seems to be speeding by?? I remember when I was young, it couldn't go fast enough for me. Days would drag by and nights were interminable. But not so anymore. They do say that time seems to get faster when you're older, but I've asked young people the same question and they agree!
I thought that by my age, my life would slow down a bit. With my kids grown and my career winding down, I pictured much more spare time to enjoy hobbies and friends. NOT. Throw in a couple of grandkids and a booming career and I can't seem to keep up.
Notice the word grandkids? Yes, I'm having another one!. My son's child this time. So life will get even more hectic, if that's possible.
I truly wonder if God isn't speeding things up as we near the end of the age. Maybe He's heard all my prayers asking for Him to hurry up! Yes, I'm one of those crazy Christians who can't wait for the end. I can't wait to stand before my Savior. I can't wait for the wedding feast! I can't wait to have a new body and be without sin! And I can't wait to rule and reign with Jesus here on earth for a thousand years. Talk about a great ending to a story!! It's the greatest story ever told with the greatest ending!
In the meantime, I sit here in my office that looks like a ship's cabin and I write my stories, praying that some readers out there will be drawn to the one and only God who loves them beyond measure. The problem for me seems to be finding time to actually do that writing!
So here's an update on what I'm working on
Done re-editing The Restitution and waiting on the cover before I upload it for sale as both an ebook and print. (You're going to love the new cover!)
Halfway through my mermaid allegory entitled. Tears of the Sea. I have also hired someone to create the cover!
In the beginning stages of coming up with ideas for my next pirate book. This is a really cool phase where characters barge into my mind uninvited and demand to have their story told, and ideas and scenes play out in my mind when I least expect them. Weird, I know.
Other than that, I'm taking care of my granddaughter, running my house, cooking and cleaning like everyone else. And praising God for all His Blessings!!
Have a Great Weekend!
