Those Things That Must Be......

Hello! Hope your weekend was a fabulous one.:o) I tell you this has been one beautiful summer season and hate so much to see it go. I have to admit I am an Autumn girl, but oh my how I am enjoying summer!

You know for many years one of my greatest dreams was to publish a book and now more than ever before it has become a lot easier to do so. Through trial and much error I have learned and are learning to live a life filled with gratitude, thanksgiving, peace and joy. True authentic happiness is sought by so many but sadly it is never found. Our Heavenly Father promised an abundant life and diligently seeking His will and relinquishing mine has completely changed my life. Though I am a Christian and have been for twenty-six years my book will be a book for anyone who desires change. You ever have something pulling on your heart and just won't let go? This little book is one of them.:o) I am indeed no expert on anything and are daily seeking, learning. I simply want to share what I know know for sure.:o) I love to see people smile and If I can somehow help put a smile on the face of just one, oh what a joy!!:o)

I remember telling my sweet Honey what I planned to do in the area of writing. He smiled and said " Babe I know you can do it". That was about fifteen years ago! I also believe everything happens in its time, its perfect time.:o)

My time here at the computer will be limited, and oh my how I will miss that!:o) Blogging is a wonderful part of my life, though my time will be a lot less here I think my writing will add a richness to my little blog I never thought possible.:o) Hang in there with me my friends. Not seeing my name in the comment section in no way means I am not thinking of you. Each and everyone of you are so very special to me, so very special. Your are the best, the very best!!:o) Though the writing will be a long journey, the journey will be much sweeter knowing you are there.:o) I will gather my notes, my little journal and few written pages and move forward. Each of you enjoy a beautiful week! Chat with you soon!:o)

Gratitude Opens Our Hearts

The most invisible creators I know of are those
artist whose medium is life itself. The ones who express
the inexpressible-without a brush, hammer, clay or guitar.
They neither paint nor sculpt-their medium is their
being. Whatever their presence touches has increased life.
They see and don't have to draw. They are
the artists of being alive.

Dear friend,

I'm SO excited for you! Many of us have heard that call if you will, to by God's design write a book. Not just a book but THE book that He has purposed us to write and so as one who is in the midst of that myself please know that I will pray for you.

Your precious and I appreciate the blessing of knowing you even if only online.

Love and hugs.

Hi Beverly,
Well, put me down now for an autographed copy of that book!! I know it will be wonderful!
As I read your other comments I can see that many of your readers feel the same way!
Actually, that is a secret ambition of mine, also.
It is always a pleasure to stop by here for a few moments of inspiration and loveliness, Beverly.
Good luck with your project!

PS- yes, I too am a fan of Cutter-Bee scissors! :D

Thank you so much for dropping by my blog. You have a wonderfully inspirational and beautiful blog. It's very refreshing.

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

Oh how honored I was to see your comments left at my little blog. Thank you so much for your very kind words. The Lord knows just the kind of word that we need and yours was needed. I just read your post and it was simply beautiful and very well written. I know that you book is going to be something really special. I know what it's like to have the Lord drop something into your spirt and you just have to get it out. Keep pressing toward the mark of the high calling... I pray that it will be full of the wisdom that comes from knowing God and knowing and discovering ones self. This is going to be wonderful journey that I know will inspire and encourage others out there. There is a story that only you can tell and everyone is waiting to hear it with your words and beautiful pictures. May the Lord grant you your hearts desire and give you much insight and peace.

During two days, I've seen at the top of your blog the photo of a very nice rose. I didn't wrote a comment because I was waiting for your new article. Today I see the first presentation, which is nice too. Which one do you prefer?

Daisy Cottage said...

Sweet Beverly,

If you can dream it, you can DO it and you ARE! What a beautiful thing and I cannot wait until YOUR book is home with me.
