|My Badge of Honor!|
Now, for some of you exercise fanatics, that may not seem like such a big deal but just a year ago, I could barely stand, much less walk. Most of my days were spent flat on the couch, working on the edits for Hearts in Hiding and wondering if I'd ever get back to normal, which for most people include walking, sitting and standing without being in pain.
Anyone who's ever lived with pain knows what a blessing it is to experience a day free of pain. So today, six months post spinal fusion, I'm celebrating holes in my shoes! Praise the Lord!
I'm blessed to live next door to a lovely park that has several different walking trails. Mornings are the best time. The day is still refreshingly cool and the park is quiet, perfect for spending time with the Lord, or thinking through a new project or listening to books on my iPod. There's just something about a good book and a beautiful day that makes time slip away. Since April, I've walked over 250 miles. That's the distance from Atlanta to Nashville!
If it's been a while since you visited a local park, Fall is the perfect time to spend a day enjoying the changing colors and slight chill in the air with family and friends.
Hearts in Hiding
Engineer Edie Michaels loves her life—she has a good job, close friends, even a chance at romance with former soldier Beau Daniels. But she could lose everything if her secret comes out…that she's the German daughter of a devoted Nazi.
And when her father sends spies to force her loyalty, everything Edie values is at risk.
Time in a Nazi POW camp changed army medic Beau Daniels. When he discovers a letter of Edie's written in German, he can't help his suspicions. Is she truly the woman he's started to love? Or has she been the enemy all along? With Nazis on Edie's trail, the pair must fight for truth, for survival—and for love.
