It feels like I’ve been in a season of change for the past year. I don’t know about you, but I’m not a fan of change most of the time, so I tend to resist it, until I finally accept it and then embrace it.
This past year has been a huge time of change for most of us. For me specifically, it meant adding a daughter in law to our family, a move home for my younger son after living out of state for several years, my parents sold their home a few doors away from me and moved out of state, my husband started working from home, and then my career path took a turn. It’s been a lot!I’ve made adjustments and have learned to go with the flow.
I’m reminded of my book The Reluctant Groom. Those characters adjusted to some humongous changes in their lives. A marriage of convenience along with a tragedy is sure to cause upheaval. However, it also caused, reflection and growth. Not bad things to my way of thinking.
As we enter fall I encourage you to embrace change and look for the positive things in your life. Maybe write them down in a gratitude journal.
I hinted at a change in my career path. Many of you know that I started my career writing contemporary romance, but over this past year I have shifted completely to writing romantic mystery and suspense. I had been part of this blog from the beginning, left for six months and missed it so much, I came back with the plan to write at least one contemporary romance a year. That hasn’t happened. The Lord has led me toward writing only romantic mystery and suspense, which I love, but it’s not within the scope of this blog. Therefore, this will be my last post on the inspyromance blog. I will still be on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You can also follow me on BookBub and Amazon. From my website you can subscribe to my newsletter to help keep up on the goings on in my life and writing.
When I left the blog the first time, I was so sad. I wasn’t ready. This time, the Lord has brought me to a place where I am at peace and excited for what He has planned for me. I’m reminded of the verse Jeremiah 29:11.
His plans are good and right and I’m excited for the future.
May the Lord bless you and keep you.
