Month: November 2018

Reflections: Being Thankful

11.28.18 Hi! November 2018 is winding down and I’m getting ready for December, but before we draw this month to a close, I wanted to reflect on how thankful we should be.  Be thankful that you woke up this morning because God didn’t have to, but He did.  Be thankful for the roof over your head, even though it is not in the best shape. Be thankful for the clothes on your back, may not be Gucci, Stella McCartney, or Elie Saab, but it’s ok. Be thankful for the food on the table, not only that but to be able to properly eat the food! Be thankful for your family, may not be the best family, but still be thankful. Be thankful for your health…can not stress that enough. Lastly, be thankful for the small things, kind words, to love one another, because that what we all need…to love one another.  Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday, be blessed.   Image source: Future Stuffs Advertisements

Shadow Spotlight: Anne Rice

11.19.18 Happy Monday everyone! I wanted to return to literature, a writer who has resurfaced into my radar. This month’s Shadow Spotlight belongs to Anne Rice. If you don’t know who she is, let me jog your memory…Interview With the Vampire or Queen of the Damned? A writer of gothic, erotic, and then later Christian literature, Rice, is one of those writers that have put a definite stamp in vampire fiction. Rice’s books have sold over 100 million copies, which makes her the most popular authors in American history.  I’ve found a few videos of interviews with the writer to give you an insight into Rice and her views on being a writer and a few other things.          Her newest novel, Blood Communion: A Tale of Prince Lestat, which continues into the Vampire Chronicles, has just been released. You can find the newest book on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Enjoy the rest of your Monday, be blessed.    Image source: NOLA.com

Generations have enjoyed and appreciated the stories and now a whole new generation can see the works. Here is a video tribute from Marvel and IMDB.  He has left an incredible legacy. Rest in peace, Mr. Lee. Hope you enjoy the rest of your Wednesday, be blessed.
