I can't believe I'm actually posting.

As you can tell, I haven't posted in a very long time. Mostly due to the fact that I've been busy writing and getting settled into our new home. Every time I would think about blogging, I wondered what to say, and wondered what others said in their blogs. I know some people post interviews--some tell about their upcoming books, and others post book reviews etc. While I've read a scad of fabulous books lately, I haven't posted any reviews. My excuse. None.

All that's is fixin' to change. I went to a dear friend's website and read her blog. It inspired me to start posting on mine again. I've decided to use this blog as a journal of sorts.

There was a time when all I thought about was death. Life had become too difficult and hope was non-existent in my life. That's part of the reason for a lack of posting and the lack of writing book reviews. Thank God, a few months ago, Jesus pulled me out of the pit of darkness and shed His light on my situation. You see, I had avoided reading the Word of God, avoided praying because I no longer trusted God due to horrific circumstances and ignorance in my life. I hurt no one but myself. I was dying a slow, agonizing death. To some this might sound simple, but learned that if I didn't put Christ, prayer, and worshipping God first, and keep my focus on Him, there is no life. Only death. Circumstances, fear, doubt, failure, people, being overweight, lack of feeling secure, etc. etc. etc. had all but swallowed me up and was choking the very life out of me. This pit dweller had only one option remaining to her... bury herself deeper in the pit of self-pity and self-focus,or look up. Cry out to Jesus to rescue you. I cried out to the Lord and He heard me, and delivered me out of the pit of destruction and despair.

My priorities are in order. My life has been resurrected.
To God be the glory.

Until next time...

See ya...
