The Intention of My Blog

Welcome, my beloved readers!

In case you're wondering, it's not a typo up there for you see the definition of goodly is:

used as an adjective to describe something
1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I am a mother who home educates her children; I would be pleased if you'd look around. You never know if I might have something to your liking. I've blogged about different topics. I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Please remember to subscribe to my blog, using any variety of methods, which are below to the right, including Facebook.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

Day 9 NaNoWriMo

is National Novel Writing Month, 
a month long challenge to write a novel 
throughout the month of November. 

I didn't think I would get through with my goal for today.  So far, I've kept my word count goal.  You see, there was a family crisis last night, and I got caught up in it.  I kept as much of my cool through it.

I prayed.  I researched online...

and I cried.

My blood pressure went up.  Perhaps I was suffering a panic attack.  I started with the body aches.  I was so keyed up that I couldn't sleep.  I ended up staring at the ceiling.

Really, I thought I was gonna suffer a nervous breakdown...but I didn't.  I lived into another day, with my brain intact to bring you more of my nuttiness.  Well, I think I'm sane!

So what does a writer do during a crisis?

Well, if you are diabolical like me, you'd start plotting the next scenes to your story.  You guessed it, I used the material of the crisis for my story.  I know.  I'm cruel like that!

Beware: I might use your drama for my story!

Maybe I should blame it on my hormones, but I had to channel all my wild emotions into something positive. 

Seriously, though, I thank God that I have an outlet for the emotional issues that hit me.  Without writing, I would totally have lost it by today.  I think it's true, what is meant for bad, God turns around for the positive.  Also, what doesn't knock you down only makes you stronger...and I think I'll leave it alone on that note. ;)

Well, thanks for reading, my friends.  I'll give another update tomorrow. 


  1. I'm glad God was able to help you turn things around Becky! Hope things get better soon You just keep your eyes on Him!

  2. Angel,


    God is answering my prayers over the situation. God is showing that He's more powerful than any of our problems.

    Rebecca G.
