Blog Hop – My Current Work in Progress

Blog Hop – My Current Work in Progress

Oh did I laugh when I read the last title of this blog hop. What is my current work? As usual I have all these ideas and no time to focus.

Here are a couple of paintings from my new children’s book.

But my current work is to focus on what God wants me to do. For that reason I will be taking a month’s sabbatical starting on April 10th. Except for Sunday Stillness which I will continue to put up.

I have come to the conclusion that if I want to get any other writing done besides blogging, I need to spend time with God – serious time. At the moment I write:

Under the Cover of Prayer – this is my first love and I am struggling with leaving it for a month but know I must do so.

Family and Faith Matters – I write twice a month and think I can have those finished before I go on sabbatical.

Inscribe Online – I write once a month and think I can write that before I leave.

and my own blog – He Cares for You – Other than Sunday Stillness – it will be quiet around here.

As for ideas I have two children’s books written. I am working on the illustrations.

I have two devotionals in the works – Living Life – One Word at a Time and a book about prayer.

And we are moving back to our residence in Canada. That is always an adjustment.

So time away will be good for me. I would ask for prayer for discernment of where to put my focus.

Stay tuned and I will tell you what God tells me.

And don’t forget to take a look at my published work – Tadeo Turtle – a story for children ages 2-7. Tadeo won the best children’s book for 2013 by The Word Awards.

Tadeo Turtle isn’t happy with his cumbersome shell. He wants to be free to run and play like Sammy Squirrel. In a dream his shell falls off near a stream. He runs, plays and has fun. All of a sudden CAT appears. Tadeo can’t outrun the CAT. He hides and longs for home. He finds his shell just in time and is safe. After he awakes from his dream, he realizes that God made all the creatures with special attributes and that he is special just the way he has been made.

You can order directly from me for a signed copy and a special batik watercolour card as a gift.
