Happy Fourth of July - and random-ness

I don't wish to be remiss in celebrating our Independence! I hope you celebrate the 4th of July safely and take a moment to thank the people who continue to fight for our freedom. My hope is that our government hearkens back to its beginnings and remembers that they are there by the people, for the people, and not for their own interests or the interests of people who are willing to throw some extra money in their direction.

Remember when being the wrong religion was against the law? Remember when black people weren't allowed to vote? Uh huh. This whole issue of gay marriage has been a puzzle to me. The government has no place telling people they don't have equal rights. Well done, Supreme Court, for taking themselves out of it. Maybe my religion doesn't condone gay marriage, but my religion also doesn't shun people. It's God's place to judge, not mine. We are taught to love one another. Period. 

Okay, off my soap box.

Like Spring cleaning, every now and then you have to take some time away from the everyday to update and freshen your space. I’ve finished doing just that with my author website, and I hope you’ll take a minute to stop by and tell me what you think!

I’ve included a page for cookies, since I have never been able to overcome my addiction to them. I’m doing much better, mind you, but it remains a struggle! With so many delectable treats and so many fun pictures on Pinterest, I felt it was my duty to share.

For those souls willing to share their favorite cookie recipes, I will select a winner on August 1, 2013, to receive an electronic copy of one of my novels (your choice).

The cookie page is still under construction – or rather, I view it as a work in progress. Click here to visit the new website!

  1. I agree with you 100%. It's not our place to judge - it's God's! I love your page for cookies and will check it each time I come to visit. Because of my health problems, I don't bake much anymore, but will check anyway in case I'm inspired. I can also share it with my daughter.

  2. I don't bake so much anymore either, but Christmas is special mom and son baking/bonding time, so we still bake together then.(and then I can give all the cookies away!)
