Thursday 3's

Hey everyone!

NaNo's done and I feel the resolve for 4:45 mornings dwindling by the quarter hour marks on my alarm clock. 

December is so full of mystery to me.  Not just the Christmas gift thing, that's all fun and stuff, but the new things we learn each year about Christ, the way our children react and act about the holidays, the anticipation of the weeks off of AWANA...(come on, I know I'm not alone in THAT one!)  But most of all, the disheveling of work/play/shopping priorities has really thrown me for a loop this year. 
I want to spend, spend, spend for some odd reason.  Last year we only spent about 150$ on Christmas (all gifts and decorations), but this year, I'm going haywire!  We've spend at least 500 and we're not done yet!!!!
Maybe we're making up for last year ;)
Things feel so out-of-sorts starting with Thanksgiving week and on into the new year when things start to settle down into a new year of routines.

Four years ago, I married the man of my dreams.  My spiritual leader, the father of my kids, the cook in our house, the man I go to for counsel...God wound us together as one that day...and I'll never forget how happy I was.  Nor will I ever think a wedding was more perfect or suited for the couple than ours was.  Each time we go to another wedding, we lean in at some point to each other and admit that ours was waaaay better :)

So tell me....

I had no idea what I was going to do this instead, I'm writing it tonight, and it's going to be seen on Wednesday instead of Tuesday. 
I have a few questions for you to answer...they will be interesting answers, they always are, but these I felt really made me remember why I write and want to share it with the world.

I'll answer the questions, but then it's your turn.  Leave a comment telling me your answers.

1. What do you write? (YA, Women's Fiction...)
2. What is your message?
3. What does writing do for your relationship with God?
4. What does writing do for your relationship with your family?
5. What does writing do for you?

Okay, here's the answers from moi:

1. At the moment, I'm writing Women's Fiction/speculative
2. Wow, this is harder than a synopsis...
Hope, even after an abortion, God still forgives, he LOVES and heals people of their pain.
3. Writing puts me in a mode of worship (when I let it).
4. My family will attest to the fact that my attitude changes for the better when I write.  I get thoughts out in my devotion, and my creativity isn't just scrambled around inside, it's channeled.
5. Writing for me personally, lets me get my ideas out.  It makes my mind clearer and ready for the "next thing".

You're turn.
