Word Fast – Day 2

Reblogged for Fandango’s Flashback Friday – nothing for April 2nd so I went with February.

“Izzy Busy Bee”

Sheila C. Morgan, Author

If you have a little one in your life, they may enjoy the children’s book “Izzy Busy Bee,” the short story of a child transformed into a place where she creates adventure, while sharing the story of who creates all life. At night Izzy’s thoughts turn into a dream, where she becomes a helpful leader in the world of bees. While Izzy has a colorful and fun time with friends, she inspires the other children in her dream to also think about how big all creation is and the great significance of a tiny bee.

With “Izzy Busy Bee,” Author Sheila C. Morgan desires to reach children in their early developmental years in hopes they may experience the awareness of God. Her work was inspired by her career and ministry. All of her books were published by Xulon Press and can be purchased from Amazon (link in caption above). While you’re there, check out Sheila’s other two publications, “The Husband” and “Seasons Do Change: A Personal Journey of Hope Through Adversity.” Maybe they will spark your interest too!

Don’t Mock Me!

you call me a fool,

laugh at my hopes, now you sit

head in hands feeling

the weight of your displeasure

seeing all my dreams come true.

I Can’t Wait!

Wishing we could enjoy the day,
having fun in whatever way.
Talking ‘bout life, dancing, singing,
Oh, that’s only the beginning!


Let’s be hopeful, optimistic,
dreams can become realistic.
We soon could meet, laugh big and share
and then you’ll see how much I care.


Prepare a list of things to do
the day I finally meet you.
I really hope you feel the same
because I’d love to know your name!

Teenagers, right!?!?!

My search for posts from the 26th of yesteryear brought me back here for Fandango’s Flashback Friday.
