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.
