We have so much to pray about - so many concerns, but I felt God wanted me to praise Him more. Like many of the Psalms, my praises often started with laments, addressing each situation head-on, but ending with hope or the reminder that, yes, God IS with us.

Praise God, those contemporary psalms, prayers, and poems became the book PRAISE! which Cladach Publishing released this spring!

Head Rhyme

Raise your hands! Surrender!
Praise our Lord God Almighty –

Maker of heaven and earth,
Shaker of hearts,

Mover of mountains,
Lover of souls.

Having the First Word
Into first being God uttered water,
broke open the night,
spilled light and water everywhere.
The Earth took God’s Word
to heart,
pumping great cardiovascular
veins of rivers, oceans,
light.
Air performed lively aerations,
breathing into plants,
boosting inhalation, waiting
to lift us, buoyed, out of water –
wailing and gasping for breath.

Marketing your book in person
When the Crescent City public library hosted “Meet & Greet the Authors” at the Crescent City Woman’s Club last weekend, this well-organized event gave me an opportunity to meet other writers and readers in my area. I sold more books in our small town than I...

The Bible has much to say about every topic that relates to our lives. Since God’s Word gives us God’s will and perspective, the Bible also has much to say about itself!

Elevation

How beautiful the whirlwind
of Elijah, lifting

unanchored items into purple cylinders
of cloud and dust. I am

dust. I am

uplifted. My breath
takes in the wonder and the wind.
