A Week in the Shadow of the Cross

The week leading up to Easter is a very emotional time for me. As I think back to all the Bible verses I’ve read about how Jesus suffered for me I cannot phantom how anybody could love me that much. But I know Jesus does. I feel it deep inside me as much as I feel my heart beating. Every living person on this earth will let us down, but not our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In today’s post I want to share a scripture to read every day this week along with a few thoughts to reflect on. Sunday,…See More

Wake Up World, It's Festival Time

Genesis 8:22While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. Spring is probably my favorite time of the year. Even though with each change of season I get a little giddy looking…See More

Filled With His Spirit, Lost in His Love

Sometimes the Holy Spirit comes right down from Heaven, or wherever it is that He presides and weaves His way into my heart, plucking out the weary and sad parts and filling my being with the never-ending love of Christ. Needless to say after a recent church service at my home church, Pleasant Ridge Baptist, State Road, N.C., I am filled to overflowing. We all long for peace, for comfort, and the reassuring truth that there’s more to this old life than what meets the eye. The world is full of…See More

Blazing the Trail (Part 2)

There’s a lot of buzz these days in my hometown of Elkin, NC about hiking, cycling and horseback riding trails. For outdoor advocates like me this is very good news. Last week in Part 1 of, Blazing the Trail I introduced you to my love of nature and a group of people calling themselves the Elkin Valley Trails Association (EVTA). Today I want to give you some details about the trails. The Mountain to Sea Trail  (MST)A simple footpath stretching almost 1000 miles across North Carolina.Spanning an…See More

Blazing the Trail (Part 1)

 Growing up on the banks of the Big Elkin Creek my days were filled with fun, frolicking and fantasy. When I escaped to the river I found myself in a world all my own, lost in time, hidden from fearful eyes and wagging tongues. I thought I lived in one of the most magical places on earth. My opinion has not changed very much the last 50 years. From Carter Mill Road to Preacher Field Road in Wilkes County, NC, I stomped in and around about every inch of creek water that flowed through there. I…See More

Daylight Saving (Slaving) Time

I’m sorry folks but I am going to lay it on the line: I HATE Daylight Saving Time. Why in the world would we simple-minded humans think we are smart enough to mess with the sun’s time? When I was a kid I thought having an extra hour in the evenings to play outside was wonderful, but now as an adult that extra hour only adds to the days workload. Not to mention the change messes up my sleep pattern. For those of us who are creatures of habit this is a very stressful time. In fact studies have…See More

Dream Big

Last week I was invited to speak at Career Day at a nearby middle school. Of course I said yes because I enjoy being around young people, and I always jump at any opportunity to talk about my writing. When I arrived I saw others who would be speaking: A pharmacist, a veterinarian, a nurse practitioner, an insurance man, a martial arts teacher, a construction worker, a paint salesman, an event planner, policemen, a robot builder, etc. I thought, oh my goodness how can a simple little writer of…See More

The End

This week marks the end of the shortest month of the year, February. All sorts of wonderful things happened this month. My birthday, my oldest nieces 40th birthday, fourteen inches of snow, and my husband Jerry and I celebrated the anniversary of our first date 39 years ago, February 22nd, 1975. To commemorate the occasion we took a little road trip down toward Savanna, Georgia and Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. On Friday the trip started out sort of soggy, raining on us the entire way to…See More

Wishing Upon a Star

John 14:13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  When I was a little girl, late in the day just as the darkness began to consume the dusk I sent many a wish up to that first star I saw in the shadowy sky. My childhood wishes were mostly selfish little pleas, but…See More

The Gift

While querying agents for my next novel, The River Keeper I was entered into a drawing to receive a free book. All I had to do was sign up to receive the Laura Dail Literary Agencies newsletter. No problem I could do that, especially if there was a free book involved. You see I love books. Bet you never could have guessed that could you? Ever since third grade and The Box Car Children I have been hooked. I love mysteries, suspense, love stories… but only if they end good, I’m also drawn to…See More

Solitude

Are you a loner or do you like having someone around you all the time? I must say I’m a little of both. I enjoy people, or most people anyway but there are times when I just need to be left alone. For the past few weeks my husband has been at home. He’s trying out retirement. Unfortunately, for me he’s enjoying it. I am simply not use to having someone under foot 24/7. Normally he would be outside doing his thing but with the weather being so yucky he’s been in the house… with me… all day… all…See More
