#TWT/3TC – Hope

Even though we’re drenched from walking the trail in the rain, we had fun and hope to do it again.

Lost at The Garden (fiction)

“Two rights, a left at the garden and a half mile past the bronze statue.” According to my uncle, these are the directions from his house to the library. TWO RIGHTS…LEFT AT THE GARDEN…PAST STATUE. He sounded so confident and so, I was too until the left turn at the garden put me on a dead end road into a cemetery. At that moment I felt like a lamb to the slaughter and immediately realized I was lost. When I called my uncle to tell him the situation, he just couldn’t understand where I went wrong because his directions were perfect. He put on this whole performance, talking about how I never listen and I must’ve made a wrong turn, etc. Again he repeated, “Two rights, left at the garden and half mile past the bronze statue.” Getting nowhere with him, I decided to head back to his house and that’s when I finally saw it. On the corner before the community garden was a small floral shop called “The Garden.” Believing it wasn’t just coincidental, I turned down that street, came upon the bronze statue and finally found the library. Yeah, I guess I really don’t listen!

#TLT – Turn Back Time

Grandpa enjoys sitting outside smoking cigarettes as he fiddles with one thing or another. His sight ain’t what it used to be and he can’t do so much anymore but his little projects keep him busy. Today I think he’s trying to turn back time.

“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!
