Let’s not ever say a writer’s life is boring, shall we?…

Standard


My niece, Amy requested I tell this true story because she thinks it’s one of the funniest she’s ever heard. (Thanks, Amy…your payment will arrive shortly.) This “live action” account of a writer’s life makes me wonder if Shakespeare had a day like this when he penned Comedy Of Errors. Comments are, as always, welcome!! 🙂

Independence AND Dependence?

Standard

Happy Independence Day! Can we be independent AND dependent at the same time? Yes, as a matter of fact, I think it’s the BEST way to live our lives! Watch to find out what I mean. Then answer the questions “How important is your independence to you?” or “How hard is it to be dependent on God?”

How does my rear-end-shashaying-Queen-of-Sheba-cat Zoe remind me of myself?  Tune in to find out! 🙂

After I posted this vlog, my friend Liz had this to say about my story about Zoe and Baby.  It’s so good, I wanted to repost it here! “I can also relate to Zoe’s distraction, but sometimes I’m Baby, too – jealous when someone else is getting more attention than me, but running to and fro instead of just asking if I can have the “spa treatment” too:)”

Aunt Jean’s Flying Academy

Standard

Have you ever felt like a baby bird, perched on a tiny limb, not-so-ready to take that first leap off the branch, and hope your wings will work? How often have we let fear rule in our decision making? (“Are you serious? You want me to JUMP?”)

Take a gander at this week’s vlog and find out how taking “Flying in the Face of Fear” lessons at Aunt Jean’s Flying Academy helped.  Then leave a comment and tell us what you have been fearful of in the past, and how you moved past it, or what you are fearful of now.   I’m posting below some great quotes and verses to help us “be willing, expectant and brave!”  🙂

 

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me;  your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”  Psalm 23:3-5

“Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point, which means, at the point of highest reality.  A chastity or honesty or mercy which yields to danger will be chaste or honest or merciful only on conditions.  Pilate was merciful till it became risky.”  CS Lewis

“For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship.  And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”  Romans 8:15

“God’s way will not lack God’s supply.”  Hudson Taylor
