Lately I have been in a suspended state of lethargy. Don’t get me wrong. I’m feeling great physically, but I’ve lost the passion to do much of anything but read. I’ve always been an avid reader and could lose myself for hours in a world created by the author of a novel.
For the past few years, I’ve found the joy of listening to audio books. This provided the outlet to be creative and at the same time being entertained with hearing the stories unfold. With rising costs, I’ve stopped my subscription to audio books and switched to Kindle Unlimited which allows me to read as many books as I want during each month, instead of being limited to listening to only one.
I do have a library card and can access books to read through that app and even listen to some. Eventually, I will have to use this means for any books I want to read or listen to, and that’s okay. I’m grateful the library offers this service which is perfect for many like me. I prefer to browse the shelves in the comfort of my own home.
My love for stories began at an early age and led into my own journey of writing novels. Recently I put my books back for sale on Amazon. Not as print, but only digital. Maybe someone like me will find my books and get lost in the stories I wrote. We all need a little escape now and then. I hope my stories bring a message of hope and inspiration.
So, this morning, I lift my cup of tea giving thanks to God for the gift of weaving words. I am grateful to all the authors around the world who write for God’s glory.
