It's a little personal

This post is rather personal...something I rarely do online. As some of you already know, I've been working on a fiction book based on fact. I got the idea for that book years ago when I was writing daily devotions for a Christian Women's magazine. Since I was writing for hire, I could not own the copyrights to the work I did for that magazine. I kept that devo and thought I would use it to write a children's book. Later when I got around to working on that book, I realized it was much bigger than that. So began the book based on the relationship between Mary of Bethany, her brother Lazarus, sister Martha and their friend Jesus. To give you a hint it begins when Mary is 10 years old and she meets Jesus in the temple in Jerusalem and she was in some big trouble.

I allowed many things to take precedence over my book. This blog was one, my plant nursery was another and the two gardening books I already wrote took time too.

Well, this year I felt that still small voice (actually this time it wasn't very still or small) of the Lord saying, "Kathy, this is the year. If you don't finish my book, I'll give it to someone who will."

So, I'm treating this book like a job and I'm determined to finish it this year. With all that said, I will not have much time to blog but I know some great bloggers out there and I will link you to some good information. I'll also be reposting some of my older posts that I think you may not have seen from years ago.

When I get my book done, you will be among the first to know, Maybe I'll figure out a way to give a few copies away here. If you have any ideas about how I might do that, post a comment,

Next week I have a great post from a fellow blogger about caring for Christmas cactus now so you have flowers at Christmas....stay tuned!
