Many of you have been following the courageous journey of Joey Feek. I have listened to many of their songs on YouTube, and I have been following Rory’s blog, This Life I Live, scenes from one man’s extraordinary, ordinary life. I would like to give you a link here, but still can’t seem to get that to work. But if you search the title in italics, it will be there to click on. Then you may read about Rory’s life yourself.
All of us have difficult roads to travel, whether it be health concerns, loss of loved ones, money issues. Each of us have been given a particular set of circumstances to deal with while here on this earth. I would just like to share the video below, as a tribute to the way this couple has dealt with the set of circumstances they have been given.
Keep this family in your prayers. Remember the testimony they have had while traveling the journey God gave them, as husband and wife, parents, and their ministry in music. We hurt for them, we don’t understand, but know that God has a purpose in this and I pray for peace in their souls.
Writing has always been a love of mine. Except for school reports! I didn't cherish those moments. I began with poems in grade school, and short little stories that I illustrated. I created something for each family celebration, and probably wore my family out. But I graduated to a longer 'book' by the time I was 18. Following traditional romance novel writing, I pounded out a pretty cheesy story on a Royal typewriter I had found at a garage sale. You didn't worry about your nails when using one of those! When our first four children were still young, I wrote my first full-length book back in 1998. I followed it with three more in that series. Those are my current WIP, needing many updates and editing before I give them to my editor to slash to bits. But the books are always much better with her advisement and help! Currently, I have nine published books.
My husband and I have been married for thirty-eight years and we have five children and nine grandchildren. I've been a homeschooling mom, Sunday school teacher, AWANA director and a pastor's wife. I've worked as a CNA and an Activity Director. When I'm not busy writing...which I love, BTW, I'm working on home projects, marketing and attending events, where I love to meet you...my readers!
