Good News Friday

*Walk and P.Croissant with my sister

*Plain croissant and hot chocolate with whipped cream and cinnamon

*Seeing the owner, looking good though he’s been battling cancer. God bless him.

*Family visits


*Lunch with a friend from Kneaders

*Turkey on Country White and Chocolate Dome – cake, mousse, and ganache

*Texts and online chats with friends far away

*My sister picked up new twinkle lights as the artificial Christmas tree’s lights finally burned out. I’m amazed how long they lasted. Yes, we’ve left the tree up since Christmas 2019. It adds heartwarming light.

Week 8 of Count it all Joy

Ecclesiastes 9:9 Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.

(I think “vanity” is an interesting word choice. I have no idea why, so I looked up a few commentaries. Essentially, the general consensus is that vanity was referring to the fact that life is short.)

“The joy of late love is like green firewood when set aflame, for the longer the wait in lighting, the greater heat it yields and the longer its force lasts.”  Chrétien de Troyes

for King and Country “Joy”

Reading List 16-20

16. A Christmas to Remember a group of true Christmas stories by authors who write for Covenant Communications, Inc. I bought it because Traci Hunter Abramson contributed one of the stories. An easy read, though be sure to have tissues for tears, heartbreaking and heartwarming and inspiring.

17. The Playboy’s Plain Jane by Cara Colter contemporary romance. I loved this one for the humor and the secret language of flowers. I think I’m ready to let it bless someone else.
18. Undercurrents (Book 1 in the trilogy) by Traci Hunter Abramson Christian suspense romance. Yes, I’ve read it before. I hunted down a used copy in paperback and read it again. A stay-up-late reading page-turner. A keeper.
19. Ripple Effect (Book 2 in the trilogy) by Traci Hunter Abramson Christian suspense romance. Still a page-turner. Diving into the third book.

20. The Deep End (Book 3 in the trilogy) by Traci Hunter Abramson Christian suspense romance. Breathtaking. Love the books.

Not a Leap Year

Leap of Faith Day

The ninth novella in the series…

Welcome back to Holiday, USA, small town America, where nothing happens, except holidays… and a little romance, if the hero and heroine trust God.

Her life a mess, EMT Belle Carlisle wants a fresh start. She’s lived in Holiday a few years and likes it well enough. She’s happy, mostly. ‘Be Bold’ is her personal aphorism, but it was never intended to include asking a man on a date.

Born and raised in Holiday, Vince Timmons is certain the prettiest EMT on the planet could never be interested in a younger man. Besides, his life is a mess. Not to mention the woman he pursued for over a year humiliated him in public. The last thing he needs is to fall for another woman who doesn’t want him.

Man looks on the outward appearance and judges accordingly. God looks on the heart…

For those who prefer paperback, Holiday, USA Anthology 2016-17

All four novellas, 9-12, are available in their entirety in paperback, including the covers on the back, for those who enjoy collecting a series.

Inspiration on SM

Jesus is my Savior and Redeemer, Lord and King. He is the potter, and I am the clay. He is the author and finisher of my faith. He lived and died and was resurrected for me and for you. He is the light and life of the world. Choosing Him doesn’t limit us; choosing Him opens worlds of possibilities. #GiveThanks
