And the rain rain rain came down down down...

Y'all remember that song from Winnie the Pooh? :D Well, the rain rain rain has been coming down down down! No wonder they call 'em April showers! Speaking of rain puts me in mind of another song; "The rains came down and the floods went up, and the house on the rock stood firm." I don't know about you, but I'm thankful my house is built on The Rock. Is your's? It can be.

What's that? You don't have a clue what I'm talking about? Why, it's that story in the New Testament that talks about the wise man who built his house upon a rock and the foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain came, the wind blew and beat against the houses. Can you guess which one stood? Why, the one built upon the rock, of course. And the moral of the story? Well, if you build your spiritual house on the rock of Christ Jesus, then you'll not fall. On the other hand, if you built on sinking sand, when trials and tribulations come and beat against your spiritual house, it will fall.

Now, don't worry. I won't charge you for that bit of Bible class. Just had it on my mind and thought I'd share.

Ok, so on Sunday, I was telling y'all that I had 2 chocolate eggs. Well, that night, just before bed (a wonderful time to eat, i tell ye) I ate one of them. And, ye know what? It had peanut butter inside, after all! I was so excited, I ate the whole thing. Well, not really the whole thing; my girls shared it with me. So, now I have one more left. I don't know what's inside it, but it had better be peanut butter, or I'll just be so sad! :( Been putting off eating it, though, so not sure when I'll get to it.

I've actually been yackin' on the phone today, trying to finalize plans for my book launch party. As of right now, it's going to be on Saturday, June 13 at 1:00PM at the old Tompkins house in Cedar Grove, WV. If you've not heard of the Tomkins house, then oh my you are in for a treat! What a beautiful old mansion! It was built in 1844 by William Tomkins for his wife, Rachel Grant, a relation of Ulysis S Grant. No kidding. Anyway, the bricks that the house are made of all came from the clay mud on the Tomkins property, and so does the wood used in the bannisters and molding. on the walls and doorways. The folks living there now have had the floors restored as best they could, and it is lovely inside. So, if you live in or near the Kanawha County, WV area, you have to come, if for nothing else but to see this historical house. If you want directions or more info, drop me a line at

I have already heard from one of you blog readers that the title, "To Tame A Heart" is a good one for the sequel to "Wild Heart". Haven't heard from anyone else though, so don't be shy about commenting. I would love to hear from my readers!

Oh, mercy, my shoulder is starting to hurt from sitting in the same spot, and there are 2 TVs playing throughout the house, so I might have to run. Thinking about digging out that other egg... OOPS! I didn't say that aloud. Did I? Aw, shucks! Reck'n I did. Oh well, it's always best to be honest. Right? :)

So, on that note, I'll git off here. Y'all be sure and come back soon, ok?

God bless, or as we say when we greet you at church, "Blesshee!"
