I have been at work on my Winter/ Spring now turned Summer writing project of a book of children’s poetry. Beyond the writing part I am not too sure of what I am doing but have been blessed to have several friends jump on board to help with everything from illustrations to some graphic design advice. Hopefully “All Creatures Mostly Small” will be out by early July. If like me you feel bogged down by a writing goal, don’t give up, resort to imitation of others or settle for less than your very best. The toughest part of course is that often our very best gets knocked down, ignored or rejected along the way. But if we are called to write, then doing our best in the way we are gifted is pleasing to the author and editor of our faith. I am not sure why God has given me a fascination for tiny things. No matter where I turn it seems He is talking to me through the smallest members of His creation and so I give you my smallest for HIs highest. If you would like a sneak peak here is a little sample from the introduction. I hope it brightens your weekend. Blessings to you all.
Hummingbirds and Eagles Of hummingbirds and eagles And ears and eyes and nose Of Ibises and flower seeds And how God’s garden grows These pages are all filled for you With creatures mostly small That God made God’s to show to us His amazing loving plan!

The book sounds lovely!
Thanks. It has been both fun and challenging. I was encouraged after a few of these were published in various periodicals and I am hoping that my youngest readers will enjoy.
“But if we are called to write, then doing our best in the way we are gifted is pleasing to the author and editor of our faith.“. Amen! No matter how many followers you have, or don’t have. I look forward hearing more about your book! Blessings.
Thank you Dave. Just a few technical issues to work through ( I think). It’s been 6 months so far so what are a few more weeks!
I love the title Pastor Pete and thoroughly enjoyed the sample you shared.
Thanks Beth. It’s a big project but God keeps leading one tiny step at a time. I am thankful for people he has sent to come alongside and help. Have a blessed week.
Good luck in your book endeavor. It’s a real journey of perseverance.
