My Writer Muses

My Writer Muses God has always played a significant role in my life, so when He gave me a purpose to write, He became my spiritual muse. It might seem strange to some writers to have God as your muse, but not for me, it felt completely natural. So, with God at the helm, I began my writing journey. When I was at a loss to find the words to express myself in my writing, God sent me the right words.  If unexpected everyday crises came up to pull me from writing on the computer, He quickly helped resolve those problems.  Sometimes, I was surprised by how swiftly He could move the mountains....

God’s Purpose & Yak-King Interview

GOD’S PURPOSE      God and I have always had a beautiful relationship.  He understands me. Sometimes in frustration, I will holler a little while asking Him questions. So far, He has not sent a lightning bolt to strike me down, although a few have come close.      In January of 1997, after being married to my soulmate for twenty-nine years, I became a forever widow. What is a forever widow?  In my case, forever, widow means that my heart and soul belong to my deceased soulmate, and he remains by my side in spirit.      After retiring in October of 2009 at the age of sixty, I spent the next...

Mr. Kitty Kat

Nothing was extraordinary about that day.  It was just another hot, dry summer day in late May. Deep in my thoughts, I walked out of the front door of my home.  The detached garage had been converted into a game room many years back. I have typed all of my blogs and books in this room. As I approached the front door to the game room, a cat came running from the left side of the building.  The stray feline was loudly crying as it ran closer towards me. A little frightened at the cat’s behavior, but concerned; I stood without moving. To me, the cries of the stray cat sounded more...

A Christmas Memory

A Christmas Memory

Thinking we all have memories that flood our minds this time of the year. Christmas has always been a wonderful time for my family and me. Tonight after supper, I sat down in my living room, thinking how quiet the house had become again. Even though I am used to living alone and the quietness, it is always a shock when it returns. For a few days, my home was so full of laughter, excitement, and love while my family visited. While glancing around the room, my mind recalled the different scenes that had played out in my home. It was like I was trying to record a CD in my head for future recall...

And Now You Know

After being married to my soulmate, Frank, for twenty-nine years, on January 30, 1997, I suddenly became a widow. At the time of Frank’s sudden death, we owned and operated a Florist together in Bay City, Texas, and Frank also worked full time for Phillips 66 Refinery in Old Ocean, Texas. Frank and I lived in Sweeny, Texas, which is located about twenty-two miles from Bay City. Even though loving owning the florist and designing flowers, in the Summer of 1998, I decided to sale the florist, which would allow me to be closer to our home. Two weeks after selling the Florist, I was contacted...

Fiction, Non-fiction, & A Memoir

For some strange reason, as I tried to sleep last night, my mind decided to think about the difference between the writing of Fiction, Non-Fiction, or a Memoir.  I have no idea why my brain decided to think about that, but half the time, I am not in control of what my mind thinks about or when it works. What is the writing of Fiction? Is it just made up by the crafty brilliant minds of authors, or is it real life experiences hidden in the embellishment of fiction to hide the truth and protect the original characters. Many writers have said that all Fiction has some truth in it. Other writers...

Humbled & Thankful

Today is Wednesday, May 8th, 2019. Fifty-one years ago on Wednesday on May 8th, 1968 a young man and a young woman stood at the front of the church confessing their love for each other and exchanging their marriage vowels in front of their families, friends, and God. That day in Van Vleck, Texas at the Methodist Church  Nancy Blakley and Frank Henderson became Mr. & Mrs. Loren Frank Henderson, Jr. As you all know, I am in the process of writing a Memoir of Frank and my love story.  Two books have been published and are available as autographed books to purchase on this website. Today, on...

I Want to be Reminded of Lilacs

Why would I want to be reminded of Lilacs? What do they symbolize, and do their colors have special meanings? I did not know a lot about these beautiful flowers and what they symbolize until a friend commented on a blog I wrote named,  My Soulmate Love for Eternity. In this blog, I spoke of the beauty of having a soulmate, a real deep, pure love. A love where we became so close to one another that we had grown like one strand of tightly woven yarn, having one heart and soul.  A love that has transcended through all time, all dimensions, and shared for eternity. A love that so connected that...

My Soulmate Love for Eternity

After marrying my soulmate Frank on May 8, 1968,  he passed from this world on January 30, 1997, due to a sudden illness. We were married for nearly twenty-nine years at the time of his death.  Frank and I were both eighteen years old when we married, and only thirty hours separated the difference in our ages, so we grew up together. As our hearts and souls became so entwined together, they became one strong thread. On our first date, Frank walked me to the front door of my parent’s home, told me that he loved me and that he was going to marry me.  I  looked at Frank knowing what he...

Prayer, Purpose, Faith and the Widow

For as far back as I can remember, God has made His presence known to me.  As a tiny child, I remember talking to Him and feeling the warmth of His touch. My true heartfelt belief is that we are all born into this world, remembering God because we have just come from His loving arms uninhibited, innocent, and still feel His lingering, loving, and protective care which stays with us.  Small children are not worried about what others think, which enables them to speak openly about God. I had the absolute privilege and God-given gift to get to teach a Sunday School class for two and...
