Hope Springs Eternal

Winner Announced!

Oct 19, 2022

Hello friends!

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my recent video of Lantana Linda.

Isn’t it gorgeous?

For weeks, after rescuing Linda from Walmart for $1.00, I patiently waited for the tiny buds to open.

I’ll admit, there was a brief period where I had my doubts I’d ever see a bloom.

But, boy am I glad I didn’t give up hope.

“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness” ~ Desmond Tutu

It’s been a challenging season lately, but I remain hopeful.

It took this beauty five minutes to discover my rescue sunflower.
Still budding!
I captured some great video of this visitor.
Next up!


Yesterday, my friend and writer, Dora Hiers released another book in her fabulous Canderhart Dynasty Series.

Racing legend Jett Canderhart has built quite an empire, winning races, toppling records, and living for all the glory. At sixty-four and a new believer, he's just handed over the reins of Canderhart Racing to his daughter, but what is he supposed to do with the rest of his life?

When a racing injury landed Jett in the hospital a few years ago, nurse Alexa "Lexie" Priesto looked forward to her overnight shifts and getting to know the man with the witty sense of humor, easygoing attitude, and lazy smile. Jett captivated her, the first man since her husband's passing. But once he climbed back into his racecar, and she realized who he was outside of the hospital environment, she refused to give her heart to a man who put career and fame over faith and family. Besides, her foster kids need love, a home, security.

So when Jett Canderhart blows back into her life as if he's racing for the checkered flag, insisting that he's changed, sweetly offering to help with the Missions Fair and winning over her foster twins, how can she resist him this time? Will Jett's fledgling faith propel him off the pedestal of praise or will he lose a second chance at love…

I hope you’ll check it out!

Congratulations, Dora!
