Marriage… it’s the real thing.


Isn’t it cute?  This is the tentative cover art for my next book that should be coming out in August/September.  It’s #2 in the Laughing series…. Laughing in the midst of Marriage.  Lord knows I’ve been given a boatload of writing material by being married to Rickey.  This one seemed to be easier to write than the mothering one.  I’m not quite sure why???  I guess that old adage “second time’s a charm” is true. 

It’s quite exciting to hold your own book in your weary writing hands for the first time.  I’m so looking forward to it.  Truly scrumptious.

I’m speaking at a marriage conference this weekend… so please pray if you’re the praying type.  Hey, I suggest you try it, even if you aren’t the praying type.  I have plenty of entertaining stories to tell, but WHAT really is the key to a great marriage?  I’m not sure I’m supposed to answer that, but this type of conference really makes you stop and think, “What HAS held us together for 22 years?”  Undoubtedly, it’s the Lord.  We would have killed each other long ago had we not been God-fearing souls.  As we daily give up SELF and focus on serving others, it’s really a no-brainer.  That’s the problem right there… when my brain gets involved.  Why am I so selfish?  Those are the days when I’M fully in control and have forgotten to surrender to the Lord.  Jesus, help us!

    You should TOTALLY get a little tattoo for every book you get published. The Dixie Chicks get chicken feet tattooed on their feet every time an album goes gold or platinum or something.

    I think you should get smiles tattooed somewhere. I’m ABSOLUTELY getting tattoos for every book I get published. You can hold me to this. Eeeek – I hope Grams and Grumps don’t read this :)

    Hmmmm, little books would be cute. Maybe along the edge of my feet. Dang, now I have to write a book so I can get a tattoo of a little book.

    I actually have a book idea that I think is FABULOUS and FUN and MARKETABLE, but I want to talk to you about the whole proposal process.

    And Angelina Jolie gets tattoos for each kid. I think.

    So, that totally clinches it…

    Even the Steven Curtis Chapman’s family all got tattoos to remind them of their little daughter/sister who died. This is totally such an awesome idea…… but can they do tattoos on dead people? That’s the only way I’m getting one.

    And the day I follow suit with the Dixie Chicks and Angelina Jolie…. other than adopting…. well, nuff said.

    So you ARE open to the idea. I’ll start drawing up some designs……
