Not Just Reading Glasses…

ANIMATED%20GLASSES

It used to just be reading glasses…

Do you like to read?  I must say it is one of my favorite past times…but usually it is late at night and I fall asleep before I get through three pages!  But I still enjoy reading anything put in front of me.

There in lies the problem.  When I turned 40 my arms simply were not long enough. As time went on, I transferred from just reading glasses to the tri focal version.  And at 58, they are the first thing I grab in the morning.  They certainly amplify the words, and quite frankly, everything else I lay eyes on! All these things appear larger than they really are…but they indeed are true in image and focus.

I am so grateful for the ability to actually see better.  Looking through these glasses really gives me perspective of what I am looking at.

I contend that the Father gives us His eyes if we allow Him to do so. If we see personal problems and issues of this world through His eyes, somehow they become so much clearer.  They don’t go away and we still might not understand.  But I have found that I can deal with personal problems with much different “vision”.

Jesus gets it folks. When no one else understands, He does. He sees it with clarity, and although we may not really understand, we can always trust Him. I know from experience.

So I need my glasses. I am grateful with the “clarity” in which I now see…trust me, they help in many ways…..

Don’t tell anyone I have gotten in the shower and wondered why my eyes got cloudy!

 I have missed writing each week as I have missed you!  I truly wonder how I ever worked a full-time, 40+ hour a week job!

We head six hours south every chance we get to see our first grandchild.  She has most certainly captured our hearts.  She is 7 weeks old and time is going faster with her than it did with our own sons. Could it be because it is not day-to-day with her and just cuddling and loving when we see her?   Continue reading

I am Still Here

Just checking in!  As I mentioned in my last post, our granddaughter arrived a couple of weeks early and is doing very well!  She is precious and we are so excited. She is loved by two sets of grandparents who are experiencing their first grandchild, as well as so many friends and family!

I am back to working on the third edit of “Unexpected Gifts” and each time I go through it myself I find more to correct.  I guess that is the teacher in me too, I want everything to be correct, and I am sure I will miss some items.  I will run it through the “Grammarly” program again after this edit.

There sure is a lot to think about when writing and publishing a book!  I have always felt it was to be published on Amazon as an e-book.  Self-publishing a book in print can be quite costly, and right now that is not something we feel like I should do.

So, prayers appreciated.  I know that I know, that I know I am supposed to get this book out there. Oddly enough I have two more book outlines started already. The second book will be a devotional and the other is another piece of fiction.  Although I might make a second book in this series, we will just wait and see what the response is……

So my prayer is that you all are doing well.  I hope to be back to blogging and staying in contact with all of you again soon.  

Much love!
