Easter Is Almost Here A Gift To Share

I have had so many thoughts and things I wanted to share.  I still have to do things a little at a time, but I will not give up.  That is the title of one of my books.  I wrote this book as something more than a story or tale to entertain.  I had and have the desire to reach out to others and share my hope that others might feel and believe the idea to not give up. 

We can have so many difficulties in life but each and every day we have to live is a new beginning if we choose to make it so.  It is a chance to find new things or appreciate the things we are blessed to have and hold.  We have a new chance to see things we may have been too busy or blind to see before. 

I have heard that old phrase to watch what you wish for because you just might find it.  I want to look for hope.  I want to look for beauty in life.  I want to look and take the time to see the sparkle of excitement and life in a child’s eyes.  I want to paint more paintings and write more books.  I want to sculpt little flowers out of playdoh.  I want to feel the warmth and love of family and friends.  I want to walk through this life together with my husband and know and feel his love.  These are things that I look forward to and look for.

Part of the way I am trying to share these things is by writing a non fiction book sharing so much of what has been and is for me and what and how it has affected me.  Life may take a toll and at times be very painful and difficult but if we can survive and live through those times we may find strengths inside we never dreamed we have.  We may find a new way to look at the things and people around us.  We may find the courage to never give up.

I am working to not only write the book, paint the painting I used for the cover, but to present it as a gift right before Easter.  Easter is such a special time.  It is often a family time filled with Easter Dinner, candy and Easter egg hunts for the children.  It is also a time to think about what it really means to each one of us.  It is a time to remember why we celebrate this special day.

My Easter gift is to offer this part of my heart and life for free for three days and hope that it might reach beyond the pages with the thoughts and details described to help others.  I hope that as each person reads the words they too feel they will not give up…not today and that they have a wonderful journey in their own lives ahead.  I hope the feel the wonder of a new day and hope for the future.

April 4 through April 6 the book   I Will Not Give Up…Not Today…Life Is A Journey  will be    FREE

This is the painting I used to make the cover.  When you look at the cover, I hope you see the path for your life that will lead you to peace, hope and happiness and where you need to go.


  1. Linda, do you have a jpg with the title on it? May we use it on the RR Page?

  2. What a gorgeous painting. Lovely the way the colors and the path draw you in.

  3. Glenda I will be glad to get one to you and appreciate it very much.

    Sheila, Thank you and I am so glad you perceived the painting as you did. I have always tried to paint them as if we could go there.
