Obviously during this time we all think about the blessings we have and are thankful for them.  We should not only give thanks on this extended holiday weekend but each and every day!  Like The Bible says in I Thes 5:18:
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. (KJV)

Thank You Lord for the blessings you bestow on me each day.  Thank You for giving me one more day on this earth to possibly lead another to Christ.  Thank You for waking me up with You on my mind.

The benefits of having a grateful, appreciative attitude is so tremendous I cannot put them in my tiny blog.  Your positive attitude will quickly affect all those around you and every situation you encounter.  So plant a smile on your face, seek that silver lining and in all things be it trial, tribulation or triumph, GIVE THANKS!

Striving forward,
People have been asking what is the deal with the second book so here is the scoop.  I am seeking a new publisher.  I could publish Oh God, with the same company but I have not been pleased with my experience with them.  Sadly this is greatly delaying the release date of that second book.  BUT I want my book done right so the delay is worth it.
For those that are dying to see what happens with the characters, I'm sorry.  I don't want to slop something together and have it not represent the hard-work, determination and commitment I put into the story.  I want it to be perfect (or very close) and that was not the case with Baker Street Baptist.  Please stay tuned to this site as I will post sneak peeks for you.

Striving on,

Thought for the day:
If you're gonna do it, do it right...~Wham
(I know that was a cheesy song but it is true)
Over two years ago when my ex and I first started talking divorce, through the encouragement of my therapist, I wrote of list of things I wanted to accomplish.  Things that I had always wanted but placed on the back burner for one reason or another.  Here is that list:
1.)  Rediscover E
2.)  Redecorate my house
3.)  Finish my novel
4.)  Voice-overs
5.)  Travel

I wrote this list and stuck it in a corner in my desk.  The other day, while fall cleaning, I discovered this list and was amazed!  Since writing and stashing this list the following things have occurred:
1.)  Therapy has gotten me to see who E really is and what she really wants.
2.)  I have re-painted my entire upstairs and have new fixtures/frames/pictures to hang according to my taste and not my ex's.
3.)  Obviously the book is done or otherwise you would not be reading this blog.
4.)  Today I was just asked to do a voice-over for a commercial!!!
5.)  Some friends and I are making plans to visit Italy for my 40th birthday!!!

All I did was write the list and set it aside but just by putting my thoughts down on papers, the dreams began to take shape and become reality.  Like The Bible says in Matt 7:7, ask and it shall be given you.  I asked and am now getting.

Thought for the day:
What is on your list?  For what are you prepared to ask?  Be clear and be sure for sometimes we get exactly what we want.

Striving forward,
