*Warning: Very small spoiler to anyone who hasn't finished Worlds Apart.
I am very excited to get this next book up! I have finished it, but still have a lot of editing to do. When Keynis woke up all alone on some cot, with his dear wife nowhere to be seen, I felt for him. Not in a literal sense, though.
When we take time to sit and think, to meditate on our life, we often have startling revelations. I know I do! I am not where I thought I would be. I am not who I thought I was going to be. I am not doing what I knew I would be doing. In my life, my Keynis is my career choice. I wanted to become a nurse and started going to school for it. But now, due to a medical condition, I don't know if I am going to be able to live my dream.
We need to take a step away from our own lives and get a better look. Our dream isn't anything more than just that: A dream. I have also dreamt of flying, not being able to squeeze a trigger, not being able to run, punch, or get away from whoever is chasing me. Now, I know my dream life is different than my dreams about life. But they are both nothing more than figments of my imagination.
The life I live now, I wouldn't change it for anything! I have a wonderful family, loyal fans, and people who care for me. I get to sit around the house and work on the computer during my free time. I run my own business. Most importantly, I know the Lord, and he loves me!
My day job is hard. It's physically demanding (Lawncare & residential contracting), but I can do all things through the Lord who gives me the strength! I have faith that one day the Lord will let me leave that life so I can stay inside and write all day!
If you have not given your life to the Lord, that’s fine. You can do it on your own time, or never at all. But just know, that the Lord loves you how you are. And, if you love Him back, you will become a new creation.
