The Month of New Beginnings

Happy New Year 
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. Jeremiah 33:3 

January is the month when we look forward to new beginnings. Although, winter isn’t my favorite season of the year, (I would rather be warm than cold.) I am confident that God will bring blessings into our lives. We have many things to be thankful for. One of my favorites is the bright, cheery Cardinals, which flit through the bare branches of the bushes and trees bringing color and hope. Another harbinger of hope is the seed catalog we received in the mail the other day. It reminds us that Spring is on its way. If we just wait and have patience the four seasons will come as God has promised. 
Philippians 2:9-11
And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; That ye may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ; Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

This year, January is even more significant because my novel, Romance Along the will be released on Amazon, tomorrow, January 23rd. Please order or download your copy and leave a review. I would really appreciate it!

Nana’s Treasures
My treasure for this month is April. She is nine and in 4th grade. April loves to play sports and is very good in everyone she tries. She and her sister are competing in Upward basketball these next couple of months. April was proud this last Saturday, that she made a “three-pointer” at the buzzer!
April loves Jesus and is active in Patch Club and Sunday School at our church.
Papa and I are very proud of our granddaughter, April.

My novel, Romance Along the Rails will be released on Amazon, January 23rd. I am excited to share Elise and Daniel’s story with you. It has been in my heart and mind for many years. I want you to appreciate the importance that the Harvey Houses and Harvey Girls had on the civilization of the West. It has been said that “Harvey Houses were islands of American culture, linked to the ‘homeland’ by the Santa Fe rails…The appearance of the Harvey Girls mirrored the appearance of the Harvey Houses: clean, businesslike, and efficient, with little or no personal variation from person to person or place to place. Their uniform, hair, and makeup codes were outlined in detail by Fred Harvey.” (from The Harvey Girls, Women who opened the West by Lesley Poling-Kempes) Romance Along the Rails is the first in a series of four books in the Harvey House Legacy, each from a different decade; the 1880s, the 1900s, the 1920s and the 1940s.
