High Calling Blog Prompt, LL Barkat

12 Days of Christmas: Day 1

An author pal of mine, made thru this wonderful blessing called the Internet, posted a blog that made me stop and think…and as the grin spread across my face, I decided to jump on the bandwagon and have some fun.  The idea is to take the “12 Days of Christmas” to a new level…to use it to inspire and draw attention to 12 other bloggers, as a simple gift of praise for who they are.  Want to know more about all this?

For my first introduction, I would like to introduce you to my friend, the one who posted the original blog about this ~ L. L. Barkat. 
Her blog is: Seedlings In Stone
Her published books are: Stone Crossings and InsideOut

This is a friend that I have never once set eyes on her, in picture or in real life…but one that I would know by her spirit and her heart anywhere.

I came across her by “accident” as I blog jumped from someone else’s place into her world…and when I did, I felt at home, comfy and warm, basking in the glow of a soft fire laid out in her words. She is a lover of God, of nature and of the spoken word and this sweet lady has an amazing gift for expression ~ her thoughts lay out like a portrait painted before your eyes and when you take it all in, you find a piece of her heart. 

I am always inspired by her work because of amazing knack for using short, simple phrases to describe heavy, heart-felt emotions.  I would be 100% honest with you when I say that every time I read one of her works, I come alive with a deep desire to write…paint the world with my words…and I always pray that people are as touched as I am when I leave her “place”. 

Always an encouragement and a joy to me, I hope you find a moment to pop on over to her place…pull yourself up before the warmth that her word pictures create and feel free stay awhile, as I know she would welcome you in with a big smile and a hearty “Hello”. 

One of my faves of hers can be found here: Trees Are Blushing “No”

Until tomorrow’s entry, I’m looking up as always…
