A Ten Minute Blog Post. Really?
This immediately peaked my curiosity because, overall, I’ve been ignoring my blog for lack of time . . . but ten minutes? Surely I have ten minutes!
First of all, I’ve got to tell you about the tornadoes that rolled through Texas last week. Cleburne, the town I called home for seven years, and the nearby town of Granbury, suffered damage and at least six people lost their lives. Please send up a prayer for all concerned.
Even though the tragedy is heart breaking, the outpouring of support from the community sheds a warm glow over the rubble. Churches offering food and water. Neighbors helping each other sort through debris. Strangers from surrounding cities showing up to remove downed trees.
God was in Texas this week. I saw him over and over.
On a lighter note, I finished editing my book . . . only to get revisions back from my agent, so now I’m at it AGAIN.
And, it’s strange, but more than once, my thirteen year old has given me the same advice as my agent. I don’t say this to criticize Jessie Kirkland because her advice is sound. It just makes this writer-momma’s heart swell with pride that at least one of my offspring “gets” the writing thing.
By the way, what’s up with all the gnats? I know I shouldn’t complain about the rain, but the gnats are driving me crazy. We’ve devised a vinegar-filled bottle to trap them, so wish me luck.
Well, my ten minutes are up, and I’m not sure I’ve really said anything here.
Tornados, God, revisions, kiddos, pride, gnat traps. Not necessarily a gripping read, but that’s been my week.
What about you? What have you been up to?
