If you don't believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, that is your choice, but it should never be okay to make light of what millions of people believe around the world. Meet the Press' Chuck Todd decided to share a tweet that set off a firestorm and rightfully so. Thousands of others responded in a similar manner as I did.
Good Friday is a holy day for Christians as is Easter. There is no "religious aspect" to the day. The day itself is about Christianity. The day itself is about Jesus. It's not about how good any of us can be. I believe in kindness and paying it forward, but I don't believe in taking something that is so personal to millions of people and trivializing it.
I mentioned earlier this month that a song has given me the inspiration to write romance again, and I've returned to a book I'd put aside for a while. There's something about connecting two souls, two hearts.
I admit that I watch a lot of romance movies, and I have my favorite couples on television. The writers know how to connect two people so that you can't look away. I hope to be able to do that one day. Until then, you can't go wrong reading books by Karen Marie Moning, Lisa Renee Jones, and Mila Gray. They write stories that melt the heart and make you want to keep turning the pages.
Until my next book, I wish you happy reading!
I had never heard this song until I was watching an episode of When Calls the Heart, and this song played for the promo of a much-anticipated wedding between the two main characters. Immediately, I fell in love, and I felt inspired. Inspired not just to write but to return to romance. I always include some romance in my books, but this song made me want to write the type of romance I used to write, the in-depth, all or nothing type of love that makes your heart beat fast. And I'm going to follow my new inspiration! I hope you enjoy the song as much as I do!
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
