Sarah at Christmas

She thought about this at church?

Sarah went to church yesterday and did a no no. She didn't worship. She drooled. What over? Shoes, of course.  She saw a lady walk gracefully down the aisle in these things, and Sarah was filled with envy. She had to kneel barefooted to confess her thoughts.

Aren't these black heels adorable? Platforms too. So lovely. Sarah loves heels.

Here's a pair Sarah bought  for herself, but she hasn't learned to walk in them.

Shoes are her weakness.  She usually travels barefoot as she zooms through the skies, but when masquerading as a human lady, she wants to wear cute, high heels.

Sarah is petite and thinks these thingies will make her look tall and elegant.

But she never appears elegant when she falls down in them.

Here's and excerpt from 
Sarah and the Scary Ferris Wheel

Sarah has hidden beneath the table as Brittany and Robert have a romantic dinner.

While she ate, Sarah kept glancing at Brittany’s shoes.  My stars!  Those heels were cute. They weren’t red, but green was nice too.

As she polished off the potato and thought about the stilettos, the server brought the couple's order to the table. “Is there anything else I can get for you?”

“How about refilling our water? I guess we’re thirsty tonight.”

“Certainly sir.”  

With water glasses filled, and her charges eating their meal, Sarah finished her own food and eyed the shoes once more. Wonder if she could walk in them?  No one would see her under here.  No, she really shouldn’t.  Oh why not?  It was an ideal chance to wear those thingies, and she wanted to so badly.

She grew from her inch size to stand about a foot tall—short enough to wear six inchers without banging her head on the table.  She then slipped her feet into Brittany's heels. Wow! They felt incredible. 

After taking a few small steps, her heart rate increased with newfound confidence.  This hidden area made an ideal location for acquiring new earthly skills.  She placed a hand on her hip and pretended to be a runway model.

Unbelievable.  This was heaven under a table.

Uh-oh.  Get a grip. Stop the ankles from wobbling. Could she be falling? No! Not again.
In an effort to break the tumble, Sarah grabbed the white tent with both hands and fell flat on her bottom—pulling the tablecloth down with her. Dishes of food and glasses of water plunged into the laps of her charges.

“Wha…” Brittany yelped as she pushed her chair back.

“Holy Mackerel” Robert picked fish out of his trousers.

With hot cheeks that had to be red if anyone saw them, Sarah vanished.

Sarah floated high above the couple as they returned to the hospital parking lot to retrieve their vehicles, they swung hands and laughed about the restaurant experience.

Glancing down at her clothing, Brittany shook her head. “Why is it that a date with you requires extra laundry when I get home?”

“Beats me. And that poor server.  He had to turn in that fish order again.  Did you see his face?  He was mortified.”

“It wasn’t his fault.” Brittany broke up again with laughter. “Actually I can’t imagine how it happened.”

Sarah squeezed her eyes shut.  She knew how it had come about.  So did the Superiors.

Do You Miss Her?

How long has it been since you read a Sarah book?

Even if you finished one yesterday, it's time to start another Sarah book! She's so cute, right? Funny and inspirational. How can you not identify with her? She makes as many goofs as humans do.

I loved writing the Christmas story. Josiah is a real macho, Texas cowboy hunk. Evan though it's spring time, you'll enjoy this one.

Sarah and a Midnight Cruise to Catalina Island is based on my true adventure of taking that same cruise. I went alone, and the trip was a healing experience for me. My dad had just died and I felt overwhelmed. Having meals and pampering was just the thing I needed. I loved writing the Sarah parts of this book, but I don't like writing about evil spirits, even though they exist. Sarah encounters one in this book. The results are riotous. 

If you read book one (All Sarah books are stand alone. You don't need to read in order, but if you read book one, this one is a short story as a follow up. Wouldn't you like to know what happened to Tom and Marcy?

You have other choices. You'll find them all on Amazon Just type in my name. Gay N. Lewis

A Christmas Card Church

I love churches like the one pictured on the cover of this bulletin. I wish I could go to one like that. I love the steeple.

The nostalgic picture reminds me of an old time religion. Nothing fancy. Just sweet people inside a simple, humble sanctuary. Worshiping.

What's your church like? Do you go to one in a strip mall? Or do you go to one of those super churches? Some are big enough for teams to play football inside.

Isn't this one lovely?

You know, it really doesn't matter what the building looks like,  where it is, or how small it is. Just go and worship.

"As for me and my house, we'll serve the Lord." A quote from Joshua. Well.........................

as for me and my house, we'll serve, but I wish we could do it in that church pictured above. Singing the old hymns with a piano and organ.  My church's building isn't pretty, certainly not fancy, but it's my place of worship, but I'll be there.

Meet Sarah

When a blonde, blue-eyed, dyslexic angel arrives from The Heavenlies to locate a mate for Tom by Valentine’s Day, she’s havoc in outlandish red stilettos. But despite numerous goofs in her efforts—many caused by her passion for eccentric footwear the other angels would never dare adorn—love is indeed in the air.

After Marcy Montgomery’s husband was killed in Afghanistan, she relocated to a small, central Texas town with Hope, her five-year-old daughter. When Sarah accidentally introduces Tom to Marcy, she sets about discovering if the two would make suitable mates. The Superiors certainly wouldn’t approve of a romantic link between the wrong people. But Hope wants a father, and when the five-year-old meets Tom, she immediately decides he is the perfect candidate.

Is Tom the right one for Marcy? Or has Sarah made her biggest blunder of all? Oh merciful heavens! What’s an angel to do?

Beautiful, talented, and stubborn, architect Laney Taylor battles her attraction to the handsome and wealthy—but mulish—homebuilder, Cannon Carlson. After all, he is her employer, and business and pleasure don’t mix, do they? 

Sarah, a klutzy, perpetually direction-challenged angel who craves cheeseburgers and fancies red stilettos, is sent to Houston on assignment. She’s to bring these obstinate people together, but she faces major challenges, especially since Laney is threatened by a mysterious stalker who plans to kill her.

To protect Laney, the Commander of Heaven dispatches a second, more seasoned warrior angel, Tomas, to Earth with divine instructions to protect Laney. But will hit-or-miss Sarah get in his way? Can Sarah unite Cannon and Laney romantically together?

Oh merciful heavens! What will Sarah do this time?

Widow Beth Marsh is not only beautiful, but wealthy enough to buy a third-world country. When she enters the dating arena to find companionship, two men profess an interest in her…but is it Beth they want, or are they out to get her money?

Watching from the Heavenlies, the Superiors dispatch Heaven’s Little Love Angel to Houston during the Christmas holidays. Sarah’s mission is to help the lady determine which of her suitors is the genuine article. Is black-haired Bryan Wingate the real deal? Or is good-looking Charles Chadwick the more earnest suitor?

When Beth invites human-disguised Sarah to attend a wedding, the delighted angel looks forward to an opportunity to wear a beautiful formal gown, and maybe—at long last—red stilettos! But Sarah’s mission becomes deadly serious when she discovers Beth’s life is in danger. If Sarah fails in her mission, Tomas, the Warrior Angel, will intercede. Determined to keep her human charge safe from gold diggers and save Tomas the trouble, the little love angel steps up her efforts.

But Sarah wouldn’t be Sarah without a few bungles along the way...

What to Wear

Mackenzie chose a sweet, pink prom dress. She tried on several, but decided pink was her color.

In this book, Sarah deals with three generations of women. None of them know what to wear for their dates.  Mackenzie is the youngest. She finally thinks pink for prom. Her mom is a chaperone for the school event and has a new love interest. The guy will be there. Suits are easy for them. But Mackenzie's mom must find a new dress. Nothing daring. Something conservative, but she wants the guys attention.  Grandmother discovers a new beau and she gets all dolled up to go to a baseball game. Each of the ladies fret over their clothes. 

What to wear?

That's an age old question every woman asks herself. 

Some of those women on daily TV never wear the same dress twice. And they always wear dresses. Short dresses. They sit on couches with all but you know what showing. I guess their male bosses like legs.

It must be expensive to show up daily dressed to the nines in new clothes.

I ran across a site the other day where women can rent clothes. Men usually rent a tux for weddings, but most bridesmaids buy the dress. And some are not fit to be seen in the first time. Brides can choose the weirdest combos. And as a guest, what is proper?

Here's the site if you want to give it a gander.

Rent the Runway

I thought Mackenzie's mom would look nice in this one from the rental site.

Navy and Teal Layer Top by Hunter Bell

Mackenzie's grandmother isn't too old to knock her date dead in this rental outfit. She's headed to Minute Maid Park to see a ballgame.

Sarah and a Date for Mackenzie is a fun book for all ages. See how the women dazzle the guys, and read how Sarah takes care of a bully.  Don't you wish you had an angel to help now and then?

Unexpected Surprise

Ronnie and Gay

Hubby and I took a guided tour to New England two years ago. I'm a talker and of course I talk about my books.

Guess what? This lady from Pennsylvania had read one of them.  Wow! Now that was a treat. I'll never forget how excited I was to hear that.

Most of my books are romance but the're fantasy too.  And Christian.

This little, havoc causing angel makes romance happen between human couples while she learns what her Maker expects of her... on earth and in heaven.  Kinda like us humans, she learns as she goes along.

I have one book that's not romance or fantasy. It's a contemporary fiction based on a mistreated wife. The publisher asked me to write a novella based on I Corinthians 13, "love is kind."

I called it Clue into Kindness.  Do you have a husband that criticizes you all the time? Georgia did. I'm surprised to hear husbands and wives put each other down, and it's possible to hear such conversations in public places. Sad, right?

A lady phoned me recently. She was laughing, but it was a cover up. She was outraged and embarrassed. While she cooked in the kitchen, her hubby slipped behind her with a tape measure and proceeded to measure her rear end. She was getting a new bathtub, and he wanted to make sure she would fit in it.

Not a nice thing to do. You think? What would you have done? I'd have said, "now turn around and I'll measure yours. You aren't a little guy." I guess that wouldn't be a kind response. 

My friend laughed and said nothing, but she hurt inside.

Words and actions can be unkind. Wouldn't it be great for marriage if we each thought before we spoke or acted?

To all you husbands out there. Do not bring a tape measure to gauge your wife's body parts. That's a no no.

In Clue into Kindness, Georgia could have been more outspoken. (Like me) But she chose to follow the path of kindness and stood up for herself in sweet ways.  

Book Review
Reviewed by Julie Hodgson for Readers' Favorite

Gay N. Lewis' Clue into Kindness is a story about Georgia, a woman who loves her husband, but he often says things that make her feel sad. He doesn't think before he speaks; then situations arise where he does things that embarrass Georgia or her friends. Georgia is a kind woman and always tries to avoid situations where her husband verbally abuses her. Her kindness goes above and beyond to keep the peace with her husband, but she always feels like she is walking on egg shells! Even her friends do not like him.

Her life and situation change after attending a party at her father-in-law's house. Her husband Alan hears some home truths about his behaviour from his friends during the party. Hearing these things about his behaviour, he tries hard to mend his ways. But could it be too late for Georgia to accept his willingness to change? Especially after the years of verbal abuse she experienced? It is an arduous task indeed for her. Do we love unconditionally? Georgia certainly did, and even when temptation comes her way she is steadfast and loyal towards her husband. She firmly believes that kindness will overcome anything presented to her.

Gay N. Lewis' Clue into Kindness illustrates from Corinthians 1:13 that "love is kind." This is certainly not a romantic novella, but a story of the struggle of love and the power of love to overcome adversity, like a husband who can be cruel in what he says. Verbal abuse is not and should not be acceptable anywhere, and certainly not in marriage. Georgia shows utmost kindness to this, and Gay N. Lewis is adept at describing how Georgia feels and the ultimate changes that her husband would/should go through. A heartrending and well written story.

Bluebonnet Time in Texas

We aren't at the peak season yet, but our fields are filling up fast. I'm guessing that the peak will come in about two weeks. If you haven't seen them, they are beautiful. 

Check out Texas Hill Country for interesting stories and updates on routes to take and the best places to see these oceans of blue.
