I just had to reward myself!!
Today I wrote 3500 words for (I am such a genius writer that I could not figure out if this word should be “in” “on” or “for”) my new book.
If you are a writer of any kind you know that is a really good days work. If you are not, trust me, it is really good!
I have a couple of writing projects that, no matter how I plan, have continued to fall to the bottom of my “To-Do” list.
So, I decided to reward myself for my productive day with some picture taking in my garden followed by a neighborhood bike ride.
It was so beautiful out! The air was rich with sweet spring smells.
Lavender (with a Bubble Bee to boot!)
Gardenia—they are everywhere. There are 2 bushes around our front porch rocking chairs that are ready to pop! I can not wait to sit there with some Sweet Tea and a good book!.
Can you smell them???
How about this……..
Honeysuckle!! It is wrapped all around the palm trees in my back yard!
OK, this purple stuff doesn’t have a smell but I had to show off how I nabbed this butterfly!!
All in my yard!!
Then, over the handlebars of my bike, I saw this……..
and finally this…….
time to go home.
I ended my Sweet Smelling Day with this in my kitchen!
2 Corinthians 2:14-17
14But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him. 15For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. 16To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life. And who is equal to such a task? 17Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, like men sent from God.
I have been thinking allot about that Sweet Smell!!
I have 2 Surprises coming over the next few days.
#1) Tomorrow I release my brand new “Surrendered Sister” Eletter. My son Tim designed it and it is AWESOME! Let me know if you want to see it!
#2) I will have my drawing for the FREE BOOKS from last post!!
You still have a chance to share your Promise!!!!
