A Project and A Prayer Request...from my heart!!

So...I've been thinking quite a lot for one day, and doing an even greater amount of praying!  And then our precious Lord has reminded me that His word tells us to listen and obey, and that our steps will be ordered... And then He spoke this to my heart, and I am so very, very glad that I was listening!!  His Word tells us to seek wise counsel. (And we know that as we seek, we most certainly find, if we seek with the right hearts, and allow Him to do the finding!)  

And so I am coming to my precious Cross My Heart readers with an announcement of sorts, as well as a request for help.  It seems that I am feeling strongly lead to write a book. Yes, I know, I laughed out loud at the thought myself!  But when you remember that God does choose the "weak and foolish things to confound the wise"...well then, it begins to make some sense!  Having said that, I have no earthly idea how to go about this task, having never, ever done it before, and never having the slightest thought in my head until a few weeks ago...to attempt it.  But I am feeling lead to write a story (I have it in my head, at least partly, as we speak) about a family in Jerusalem in biblical times.  It's going to take some research into the history and culture during that time.  But I want to take us all into a home, like one we might all relate to (on some level) as if we were there when our Lord and Savior spent His final days on this earth.  

And so, (out of necessity) I will be blogging a great deal less as I forge ahead with this project. And let me say here and now that I reserve the right to come crawling back, for good...should this project prove to be impossible or overwhelming!! This is a very distinct possibilty!!  I would love and ask for your honest input in this, as I have written a few pages, and need an honest and unbiased opinion.  A wise counsel!:-)  I do believe that God is callling me to write the book, (or atleast, to be obedient in the calling and to TRY), and so, I must give it every bit of my effort, but your thoughts and opinions would help so very much.

I will be posting them tomorrow, I believe, (hope) as only my dear beloved husband can figure out how to get "pages" to post onto my Blog without my having to re-write the entire thing, even if it is only a few paragraphs. (You see?  The weak and foolish things of the world...:-)

Talk (and "post" soon).  Cross My Heart.
