Day 5~HOPE

What first comes to mind is that I hope to write and publish my book. Right now I'm doing writing exercises on memoir styles in order to come up with a solid outline. I am slowly but surely disciplining myself to write every morning. This way at least I feel I am chipping away at the mountain! I searched for local meet-up groups, but I'm not quite ready (by a long shot) to show up with my typed manuscript so that will have to wait. I did recently make a special writing place in my bedroom that is quiet and I'm hoping for inspiration and focus.

I hope and pray that Drexel Hill Baptist Church here in Delaware County, PA, will be able to realize Pastor Jeri's vision of building the new "Green Church". I tend to link up hope and prayer often these days because I'm a Christian and aim to serve Jesus every day of my life. Don't worry about me pushing my beliefs here though, because I respect everyone's right to find the God of their own understanding. I'm really excited about the Green Church since it's going to be like no other; it'll be fully ecologically sound with beautiful plants and fountains abounding. Finding DHBC outside of California is beyond my wildest dreams; I feel very blessed to be a part of it.


  1. Drexel Hill!!! Really??? I grew up in the Briarcliffe section of Darby Township. My post office zip code was Glenolden, though. I also lived in Lester, Essington, Tinicum and Collingdale over the past 19 years. We were neighbors- kind of- in all those years. I live out in Lancaster County now and I love it out here. Great posts you have going. are doing the 30 Days of Truth, too. It is a great writing assignment, I think.

  2. Gina~I've lived in Prospect Park and Folsom for the last 7 years. Before that it was CA for 30 years, but grew up in small town CT. I've heard Lancaster is beautiful; going to see it for the first time this April on a retreat. I aim to get back to CA, but making the most out of PA until then. So good to hear fr you!!! Take good care...
