Looking Up

I've been so busy in my life for these past few months (as my hiatus from journaling shows) that I feel I'm always looking down - down at my keyboard, down at my checkbook, down at the mess of the house and the chores needing to be done. How often do I look up?

Not very often, I realize. Even when I take a walk, I find myself looking at my feet, anxious not to make a false step and stumble - instead of looking at the beauty all around me.

I found this picture my daughter took, while lying beneath one of the trees in our front yard. She was looking up - and I'm posting this as a reminder to myself. I want to be looking up more - looking up at the sky, at the fall leaves and colors, and at our Heavenly Father looking down at us. He may just be smiling at me, but I'll never know if I don't look up.

Starting a publishing company....

One reason for my hiatus is that we have decided to make our self-publishing company into a REAL publishing company with our acquisition of the John Paul 2 High Series. It's very exciting but a lot of work. I pulled out an old drawing of Chesterton's White Horse which I did years ago and designed a logo for our company, Chesterton Press (which formerly published only the Fairy Tale Novels). I hope you like it.

So we are hurrying to get the first three new books into print before Christmas, plus redesign or design three websites, and I still must do more sane household things such as going through our sheets and blankets and get rid of things in preparation for the fall...

Please do pray for us in our busy-ness and I look forward to posting about sanity soon.
