I want to welcome Ginger Banks to my blog. She will be helping me out while I am dealing with my health issues. Her first article will be released on Wednesday, Jan 18, 2023.

Here is her bio below:

Ginger Banks is a Christian-based inspirational and endeavoring writer cum author. Living in Iowa, U.S.A. she attained her CPHT through a local community college.

Her work has primarily focused on theme papers, short stories, essays, and poems of varying genres. She is working on two fictional Christian novels.

A staunch advocate for requiring all medical and dental professionals to accept all forms of health and dental insurance from patients. She writes letters and uses phone calls to urge our elected leaders to improve health care. Requiring insurance companies to cover all prevention-based services 100% so a patient doesn’t have to be sick to receive the coverage that they need.

Her greatest accomplishments in Christ were two short-term mission trips. Leading others to salvation through Jesus Christ.

Ginger’s highest hopes for her life and writing have been to draw others to the same saving knowledge in Christ. To inspire and encourage fellow believers to draw closer to God daily.

“The Decision” by Alexandra Mars © 2023.

The black SUV sat there again. At random times throughout the day, the same vehicle always returned. The third time this week, parked across the street from my home, avoiding my security cameras. Why? Should I call the police and become the crazy neighborhood “Karen”?

Sweat dripped from my brow. I didn’t want attention on myself. I couldn’t risk blowing my cover as my fingers squeezed the grip of my pistol. Paranoia. Is a terrible omen. Remembering, underneath my bed, my go-bag and money were ready. Flight or fight flooded my mind.

Taking a deep breath, I would fight.

Jan 5, 2023

Jan 2, 2023 (New Year’s Resolutions)

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year. It is that time of year for resolutions. I have been asking myself what I want to accomplish in 2023. What is important to me? Creating routines, writing, exercising, and creating more content for my social media are on top of my list.

MY SEVEN 2023’s GOALS:

Creating Routines – to help me stay focused on what is a priority and allow me to achieve my other goals by getting my household chores done. Organizing my home to create an inviting and relaxing environment for me and my family.

To schedule time for my writing during the day – 2022 has taught me, that I need to set time aside, during the day for my writing projects and articles. This was an eye-opening revelation for me. If I want to write, I need to make time for my writing.

Exercising – 2022 has also taught me, if I want to keep my mobility and maintain a healthy weight, I must exercise. Whether I like it or not, I must exercise. To be honest, I’m unsure how this will be incorporated into my routines. I’m determined to discover the way.

Keeping my relationship with the Lord healthy – I need to nourish my spiritual life. I must put the Lord first and spend time with Him by reading His Word and praying.

Creating music – composing music is my happy place where my mind can unwind and relax. I need to spend more time working on my compositions.

Reading – I fell short of my goal for 2022. To be honest, I know I can do better.

To create more content for my social media platforms – not sure how I’m going to accomplish this goal. Working on a plan, I’m determined to come up with an idea.

What are your goals for 2023? Please let me know, in the comment section.
