    A peek at the unpublished UNTIL THE MEEK INHERIT.

    Left orphaned at 14 and nearly 16, Judith and Lance Freeman try to convince Miss Hattie Strang, their elderly neighbor to become their surrogate parent. Miss Hattie responds with: “I have long maintained that one of the things American children need most is supervised adversity. I have seen vast potential snuffed by overindulgence. You and your brother have potential for greatness. You both have the gifts and talents to excel. God has seen to it that you now have the opportunity for adversity.”
    “Opportunity?” Judy gasped.
    Miss Hattie ignored the interruption. “I plan to monitor your progress closely. God’s blessings are of His own choosing. Sometimes we are forced to endure blessing upon blessing.” She turned to leave. “I, of course, shall be available if you need my assistance, otherwise, please do not call on me.”

    Hi Abby,
    Favorite Lines Friday is always my favorite.
    This is a line from Nights Arose available on Amazon

    On the beach, amber reeds bowed to the gusts blowing in from over the ocean, The wind teased her shirt open and closed. She grabbed the collar and tied the cord tight around her neck. She put her head down and turned her face from the blustering wind. The sand rose up, invading her eyes. Blinking her long lashes caught the fine dust, making her eyes sting. Her tears mingle with the grains and dried to form a crust. The grit scratched at her when she brought her finger to the corner of her eye and wiped it from her skin.

    Thanks for reading! To read some check out my book on Amazon. Free on Kindle Unlimited.

      I know that feeling. Not the reeds, but the sand, wind, watery eyes, and the feel of grit between finger and that tender part of skin near the eye.

    Thanks for letting us share! Here’s a snippet from my latest WIP:

    Ryan was saying something, but I was already opening the door. I sprang from the truck and strode toward the house. Gravel crunched under my sneakers and lush scents filled my nose—dirt and rain and childhood and rich, growing things. And behind it all, Lough Gill. Reeds, algae, and the lake’s prolific life, concealed beneath soft waves, whispered to me, just out of reach behind the copse of surrounding trees.
