I follow this site daily and found this to be one that is to be shared. So to all the poets, the book writers, bloggers, podcasters and the like…….
Pen to Paper – your Lion Bites word for today
God is calling the writers and even those who know that there is a book within them. To you who have put off and put off the challenge of sharing your story, today is the day to start putting pen to paper. He is saying, “It only takes writing one page at a time. I need you to leave a legacy for the next generation. Poets, come forth as well! Lift up your pens!”
My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer.
A fellow blogger that crossed my path a while ago has published a book. It is full of truth and pain and her reality. Her memoir.
I purchased this book through amazon.com for my kindle. I couldn’t put it down until I finished it. But I had to. I tend to feel the pain as I read and needed short breaks. That is a GOOD thing. Why? Because we all have come from dysfunctional backgrounds. But some faced harder things than we may have. Or perhaps I should say different things in our past.
I never went hungry or was physically abused. I had more of the verbal attacks and great loss and left to myself to heal.
As I read through Mary’s book, Running in Heels, I thought of people I have met over the years who had to endure great pain. Is it fair – no. But the way our God had his hand on her (and you, dear readers) through all the pain is fantastic.
This book is a great read for anyone. For your heart – yes. And for others you know and those you will meet, it will be of great help. A must read.
We all need to know that someone else has gone through what we are facing or have faced. We all need to know that God was with us and is and will see us through. Life is not easy, for anyone. But it can be redeemed and turned around.
This cake drew me in rapidly. BUT I am in the USA, born and bred, and except for a teeny tiny learning experience with metric – I do not know metric. Several years ago the US wanted to change to metric. I balked at that idea but was willing to learn. Then, as usual, they said we will not. OK. Got out of that one. But now I keep seeing these wonderful blogs with fantastic temptations and I want to make them. That’s where google comes in. So I converted the grams to ounces and OH MY! What a fantastic cake!
