From the past a new project and heart journey is emerging. It began a long time ago when Pete first flew into my writing life as a magic teddy in my home. Now since my Memoir Shafts of Gold has become a reality something unexpected has occurred.
on the book is a link to http://www.golden-rains.com where through the years I wrote of the fullness of my Christ-life and the fiction and wonder of a childlike aspect of joy there. A group of younger folk began to read my stories of the magic bears and I have been challenged to produce a full colour children’s book incorporating All the stories. It is a wonderful goal to keep this aging one travelling. However to have it professionally produced will entail a big financial as well as creative endeavour from me. $3,000 has been a wonderful offer for this to be a stunning addition to my other works. I have a dream again for this book not as material gain or to focus on me as a writer but once again to highlight the God who is L ord of ALL THINGS. I dream of being able to give books to children’s hospitals and to bequeath as my legacy the bears in the stories to a Children’s Home.
In the NEW white cupboards in which they stand and a book they would not be unappreciated when I am gone and not just viewed as ‘some old teddy bears’.
I value any comments as I embark on a new journey yet complimenting my Shafts of GOLd life story and thanking all including my awesome Saviour who continues to inspire my life.
What next? I am attempting to really improve this site but I think I will have to go on maybe an online training program. Feeling A little daunted. Perhaps I should just go with what I have although I feel this site is a bit Higgledly piggedlty. Are you visiting Ok? I would value feedback/and or advice. I have had a couple of requests about having an add on payment option so I could provide personally signed books at a good price including postage. Value any advice please. Blessings and Love.
Learning to dance. Not my dog but little Char-Lee does the same. I have been reading some information that is inspiring me that ongoing learning enhances life at any age. This latest writing endeavour Shafts of Gold is teaching me about not being hesitant about promotion of my faith or my writing. This book I pray can do both.
The intention for this book is different than for any other book I have ever written. It has history but it is not an historical novel. There are no fiction people. It is my life’s journey but I do not want the focus to be upon me. I would like folks to find the reading enjoyable but it was not written to entertain. Nor was it written to make a personal highlight or for money or gain.
It was written to share but not preach but to show how through an ordinary life and a very ordinary child a life of unexpected pathways can emerge. It is a story of the discovery of a Divine GOD who shows not just a beautiful reflection of all that is worthwhile but IS Divine LOVE, Divine PEACE. HOPE and BEAUTY. As long as rules are followed the MESSAGE of why Jesus was born and His Plan for the whole world was clarified to me in simplicity and through struggle and loss.
The address and website for the book is on line now.
This book is so personal yet says so much about the awesomeness of the God I searched to find for myself. This book was published. There are three minor omissions of letters at beginning of words my best riend..ie Friend (Jesus) My aviour My Saviour who is Lord. and a 5 instead of a 4 on a date. My fault , I read through the initial print-out and missed these. They have been rectified (I saw the little omissions when I held the book in my hand. )
Now, I will wait for full printing to continue. Please pray with me that my efforts to have this book the best it can be as a Thank You for life and my ongoing journey with faith and HOPE with HIM on it will be a reality soon.
My desire is that it be ‘out there’ in the market place but that I will be able to freely give as well to encourage others. Blessings all!
Shafts of Gold now a published book has personally revealed my answers. My Prayer is that it was written inspired by HIM through a relatively insignificant life, but may be an encouragement for all who honestly keep seeking and asking.
From the BREATH of God to bring Life to dead bones as Ezekiel prophesized to the gentle nurture of the broken and bruised……this is HOW BIG the Saviour died to reveal to the world. BIGGER FAR THAN WE CAN EVER REALLY COMPREHEND.
Shafts of God is published. Whatever Lies Ahead is in God’s Hands
It is the 1st anniversary of our much-loved daughter’s journey home to God. It was her encouragement that began the Shafts Journey. Now it will be a reality. David took a video. This is my unplanned launching on this site.
The Memoir story of my life is shortly to be in print. I have one further step to take this time never before contemplated. I have the opportunity of a radio interview which will allow me to express the REASON for writing and why . Sadly, I do not have the $1,000 needed to put this marketing in place but I have the soaring Hope that in my Lord even this at this time is possible. With all the desperate needs in this world I would ask if anyone else feels to join me in prayer re this I would be grateful. This book is not about me although (of course I am in it) but it is primarily about an amazing God.
Shafts of GOLD thank You my precious Saviour for my life and my journey. Eternal Hope to live only in His WILL.
