Making Sacred 3 March 2015

IMG_2710I read the other day that sacrifice means to make something holy or sacred. I’ve been trying to keep a “thankful” journal on a daily basis. I did very well for a while and then I kind of lost track of putting something done each and every day. I believe we do honor God when we give thanks, and when we give thanks, it helps us to focus on blessing. We should make more time for the things that gladden our hearts.

What gladdens my heart: a good day’s work, a morning run, a long walk in the afternoon or evening or late morning-okay,IMG_2720 a long walk anytime, oatmeal with blueberries, hot coffee, the constant beauty of creation, snow piling up, a thunderstorm, babies, poetry, writing, prayer, sharing a meal with friends or family, getting something hard figured out, my children, the horses in the morning poking their muzzles around in the hay, having the heifer around and anticipating the baby calf to come, and my list goes on and on.

I’m blessed with such a great publisher too. The cover mock-ups for my new novel, Worthy of Love, are a source of joy. I can’t wait for the birth of this novel into the world of my readers. Country love- there is a blessing!
