"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen


As Of Late (September)

One of my VERY favorite websites, Exemplify Online, started a monthly meme on the 15th of each month that is an absolute FAVORITE of mine.  Click here for details.

Check out Kristen's post for more "As Of Lates" and join in there. (doesn't appear to be up yet - soon, perhaps?)

And now it's my turn.

Lately, I've been trying to find the balance between waiting for others and doing what I can/should

Lately, I've found joy in teaching an old dog new tricks

Lately, I've enjoyed more "quiet time" than I have in months

Lately, messes have been bothering me (this is HUGE, by the way)

Lately, I've been reminded how much I enjoy working with kids

Lately, I've been wondering where some of my "second tier" priorities should be

Lately, I've marveled at how I once got through life JUST FINE without a computer, a cell phone, twitter, facebook, and FaithWriters

Lately, I've been focusing more on asking God for others rather than myself

Lately, I've felt blessed

And I've been wondering, what have YOU been doing as of late?

Paving Rough Roads With God's Presence


  1. It is so odd to think that even ten years ago computers and cell phones were not as important. Wow.

    Beautiful as of lates my friend.

    Lately I've thought a lot about throwing my cell phone and email accounts into the sea. LOL. Oh, for quiet simpler days. ;)

    Love when you join me!

  3. I'm so glad you feel blessed and realize it. Some people don't know when they are blessed and end up taking it for granted. I think God would want us to take note of the blessings in our lives so we can remember His goodness in the dark times.

    Hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
