Happy Anniversary to me!

OMG! I just remembered that today is my publishing anniversary. The past four years have been incredible. 


I'd been writing for years before I published in 2010, but I think this is pretty good for four years...
Much more to come...

Task Tuesday

I woke up this morning with a plan. Hubby took the car, so I decided to spend the day working on my ever-growing To Do List which had in the #1 spot - straightening up my office. The problem is this task would be an all-day job, and I could spend this gray, rainy Atlanta day writing instead.

The first thing I did after I made my tea was come into the office to pray and read my devotionals. Here's the first one I read:

"Are you living a productive life?
I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways. I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word. - Psalm 119:15-16

The story goes that the great entrepreneur Henry Ford once hired an efficiency expert to evaluate his company. This man came into his factories and offices to assess the efficiency level of the workers. After a few weeks, the expert made his report, which was highly favorable except for one thing.

“It’s that man down the hall,” said the expert. “Every time I go by his office he’s just sitting there with his feet on his desk. He’s wasting your money!”

Mr. Ford replied, “That man once had an idea that saved us millions of dollars. At the time, I believe his feet were planted right where they are now. He’s staying put!”

In today’s world, our society measures effectiveness by task completion. If you get all your tasks done in a day that were on your list, then the day was productive. But if you’ve fallen short of your task list, then the day was unproductive. It rarely matters what else you accomplished. You’re measured on your tasks.

But think of all the great ideas that have come about very likely because someone just stopped to think. Albert Einstein… Ben Franklin… Leonardo da Vinci… all of these great minds spent significant time simply thinking!

There’s nothing wrong with tasks, but don’t let them run your life. Spend daily time meditating on God and His truth because that’s the path to truly finding wisdom!

Prayer Challenge
Pray that God would release you from letting tasks overtake your life. Ask Him to speak to you as you spend quiet time meditating on Him. - from http://www.crosswalk.com/devotionals/seniors/

Sometimes I forget that simply crossing off items on my To Do list isn't really accomplishing anything productive. So, today I'm pushing the stacks of filing aside and I'm letting the creative juices flow.

It's Release Day!

Atlanta plastic surgeon Charles Stafford is giving up his successful practice to volunteer his services in Nigeria with a medical organization. Even though he’s excited about this major career move, he has no idea how much his life is about to change.


Nurse Adanna Okoro is one of the six medical professionals working at a small village hospital thirty minutes outside of Lagos, Nigeria. She loves her job and is devoted to the people she serves. When the hospital is notified that it has been chosen to host a team of foreign doctors, Adanna meets the man she has always dreamed of.
