365 Snap Shots of Life: Day 172

I was just telling Esther that God doesnโ€™t ask us to do the impossible like wake up every morning and run the universe. โ€œ Ok, kids, today you will align the planets, make the firmament firm and run things for me. Good luck guys!โ€ No, His ways are so simple: โ€œ Today kids, I want you to TRUST ME and be content and thankful no matter what your circumstances look like. Think you can do that?โ€ No, we are more interested in helping Him run things. Bleh :/ He gives us the easiest job and we botch it up by trying to do it all ourselves. Man are we dumb!!! ย HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SUMMER and longest day of 2012!

 

365 Snap Shots of Life: Day 160

I am thrilled to announce to you my amazing readers that I have just completed the first round of edits for my upcoming book, SALSA! THE TASTE OF LIFE. I beat my June 15 deadline too! That’s why I wasn’t posting on my blog. I never was a procrastinator. Why live life worrying about what you know you have to do? My motto: Just do it! That way when it’s done you can breathe easy. Ok, ok, I’m not trying to get preachy here ๐Ÿ™‚

A couple of day ago I finally ย met ย with my editor via the cell phone. She is such a wonderful person to work with. Funny, I had always feared working with an editor; I seriously had made it into a nightmare in my head. Now that Iย actually have one who is working with me to help me fine tune my work and helping me grow in the craft, I truly do appreciate the work editors do.

This post was for catching you up on the latest developments of my book. Since it’s Friday, I shall leave you with some funny pictures to start off your week-end. Have fun it’s summer!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

365 Snap Shots of Life: Day 135

In this new place there is no room for bitterness. Bitterness is a dead man’s grave-clothes. I have cast off all my grave-clothes ย for good. The last vestiges, which hung on to me by a thread, have fallen at my feet and bitterness is eradicated once and for all. From here on out I see ahead only as far as the lamp I carry allows me to. I have caught glimpses of my future. I carry with me postcards , snap shots of it and when I look at those, I smile because I know I’m headed there for sure. Perhaps that is my only certainty in this new place; my assurance ofย a better future than the current present and that is enough to comfort me and keep me on this path that is taking me there. Every sunset I see differently now. Sunsets now mean that I have overcome another day. This day has passed into tomorrow. The sun setting on today can only mean one thing: That my future draws closer and that is exciting.

Who awaits me in my future?

365 Snap Shots of Life: Day 130

What would I do without Pinterest? ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Hump day everyone!

 

 

 

 

I believe in family meals so much. What better way to reconnect with everyone at the end of the day with a nice home-made meal. I say turn the TV and gadgets off for the sacred, intimate moments shared at the dinner table. That’s what we do around my home.

I also believe strongly in teaching kids responsibility and the value of work early on in their lives. They’ll thank you for it one day.
