I hope these entries give you a little something extra with posts about this southern gal living in the north, about writing, author interviews, new releases, and occasional photos from my photography sojourns.
Thanks for reading!

Housing Development - Update
Things are moving forward in our house-building. The Lord has blessed us with amazing weather and our builder took advantage of a couple of those days.
The slab was poured a couple of weeks ago and I was able to add something to our foundation.
Within the center of our foundation, I was able to place a Bible opened to Jeremiah 29:11.
Jeremiah 29:11 (King James Version) King James Version (KJV) Public Domain 11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
We've also been adding scripture within the walls.
God has blessed us beyond measure with his provision and we give Him the glory!
