There is a Lot to be Thankful for

It’s been a tough nearly two years, but within all those months and days, God has always been there, blessing me and granting His great mercy, love, and peace.

I am forever grateful for my relationship (as best as I try) with God.

I’m blessed to have my wonderful family, friends, and blog friends who follow me.

I also am so happy and grateful for all my loyal readers. All of you who read my books and leave such lovely reviews really mean so much to me, it’s hard to express. My books are recognized because of all of you buying, reading, sharing, mentioning, and reviewing them.

I’m abundantly blessed to have both my sons home for Thanksgiving and will be for Christmas, as well!

The always comforting presence of my cats add to the many joys on this day.

May you and your families have a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving!

He Represents All of Us

Gregor, the main character in the incredible and important book, The Metamorphosis, is a symbol and representation of workers in mine and many cultures in the world. We are not just numbers, and our worth shouldn’t be focused around how much we are able to produce.

Humanity, indeed, does produce many amazing things throughout our history. But when we are working ourselves to the bone to make a living in which we can hopefully survive and at the same time are not treated as if our humanity matters, something is wrong.

Are we still human beings? Whether we can produce a ridiculous amount of GDP or not?

I submit that we are. And our value isn’t based on what the GDP is. It’s based on our humanity. Our living, breathing, unique beings that can create beautiful things, even without any monetary value.

We are losing our humanity. In our social media and cyber world. Dehumanizing each other has become rampant in our day.

Let’s not forget we are all worthy and made in His Image. Living life with joy and purpose supersedes topping the GDP numbers.
