My Goals for 2016

I plan to write as much as I can this year. I plan to go farther than last year, and 2015 was not a, lazy, year. I worked on the blogs every day. I would love to see the smaller, blogs grow. Rubies Corner should grow passed 598 followers. Way passed them.

I plan to write another book in November, and just continue until I finish.

So I will work on the blogs I have, and try to see them increase. These are my major goals.

God’s Way is Better. It is the Best Way to Go.

My Goals for 2015

My Personal Goals for Writing in 2015 are not many. I love to write, and in 2015 I expect to write another thousand, posts. That would be a good, goal to achieve. I would like to draw more, and use this to visualize the posts. I haven’t had art, training, but I find that a picture adds to the clarity of the post. I use the tools on the computer to draw,

Roses for Mom, Mother's Day 2015
Roses for Mom, Mother’s Day 2015

flowers, or characters to illustrate what I am saying. These cause humor to rise, and people laugh with me.

Goals for 2013

I typed up something similar, but it won’t be a page.So here are my 2013 goals. I am a bit late getting these out, but I may as well show them to you.

I plan to write all the rest of 2013, and my goal is to be at 2,500 posts by December 31. This will be rather easy, because I write daily. If I don’t make this goal, I will know not to think I can do 500 more posts next year. I won’t cry if I don’t make this goal.

I would like to get to know 5 new writers who I have not met. I come in contact with writers frequently. I would like to have 5 friends who I can confer with, and share my work.

I will continue to draw, and I would like to add pictures more frequently. They can be what has already been drawn, or Isaac can take a picture for me, and I will add that for clarity. I believe that a picture is worth a thousand words. It helps to include them.

On the other hand, I am not writing to uneducated people. I believe that prayers, and thought need to be put into what is said. So I will try to keep the 9 blogs busy. I have nine for organizational purposes. If I write-up a recipe, then it goes to Rubies Recipes. If I draw, or paint, it should go to Rubies Art Corner. I try to keep up with the Art, but sometimes these slow me down. It may take 3 hours for a simple sketch to look right. Isaac usually encourages me to draw it out, and then to put in on the site. I think, “I can draw it on the computer faster.”

I plan to paint more than last year, so I will have to get busy. Some of those paintings will be on Rubies Corner. I love to share the new things that happen.

I sat in my chair rocking as I watched Mat Lock today. Bubba, my cat, hopped up in my lap and went to sleep while I rested in the chair which has a footstool to go with it. The chair and the footstool rock, and they are on a hinge. So I found time to rest, relax, and enjoy a good mystery, while I rocked in my chair.

I believe Mat Lock is entertaining, informative, and appealing to me because I need rest from church, people, and entertaining others. I can listen, and not think about people, places, and things. It is a good, clean show.

This year, I hope to meet these goals. I have talked on, but I hope you will see that I am very sincere about making another 500 posts! I just have to sit down at the computer. It flows together, and I love to write, draw, and do what I need to in order to write. Word Press is wonderful. I will stay with them this year. They have it all organized, and I can correct things on a post within minutes. This is easier, because they make it that way.

2013 will be another year with writing a novel in November. I am not supposed to start until November 1, 2013. I have no ideas right now what I will write on, but I have written two books, and this will be the third. It will have to be a novel, so I will pray for ideas. They come, and I type. God is good, and He blesses every day. Thanks for reading this. Search out the posts. They are not all perfect, but I am sure you can get the point that I made. Life is short. With God in my life through Christ, I am not standing still. I am retired, but enjoying my time at home, writing on the websites. I plan to put out the words, and I hope there will be plenty of people to read them .

I would like to see the totals go to 300 people who punch follow and read every article I write. That would be nice. Right now it is at 179. That is God’s blessing. I write on face book also, and there are about 60 who follow me on Word Press from there. I love the games on face book, especially the Defender game. I plan to play it at times when I have stopped writing, and need some simple game to play. This one is a challenge, but that is another story.

I Do Have More Blogs

I am adding this as a page, so you will know that I write on nine different blogs at Word Press. Rubies Corner is the largest blog. I started it first. Once I reached one hundred posts, I started waitjustamoment. It has all kinds of writing on it also. It is not huge. Then I decided the recipes need to be together. I created rubies recipes. I just put a new Salsa Soup recipe there. Rubies Jewels has always had spam, and it has quite a bit. I write mainly Bible oriented pieces there, but some are articles that I feel are good to write. Then there is Rubie Do, and Rubies Advice. They haven’t been as well sought. I reserve  Rubie Do for those things that characterize me. Like eating ice cream. I love it. Rubies Advice is not really advice. No one needs advice. So I made it a general blog, and it has survived. Rubies Art Corner has my drawings. I don’t have every single one there. I have more art on RSC deviantART where there are 200 pieces to look for. I did some of these on the computer, and it was not easy learning to draw with a mouse! Rubies Songs just come. I put them there because there are several. When a song comes, it comes at once. I think the words are more important than my singing them! rubiedonovels is the 9th. I started it when I started writing a novel last November, 2011. I have three pieces there, and one is not a novel. It is a short manual on how to get joy, love, and peace in 7 days. It is short. These will be for sale hopefully as books by the end of this year. I wrote them, and they are original. They are in rough draft form for now. I am writing this so you will know, that I DO HAVE MORE BLOGS. Thanks for coming by Rubies Corner!

The Angel and the Preacher- by Ruby J Craft–Acrylic Painting

A congregation of several families prayed with their pastor. He was discouraged because the church was small, and struggling. As he continued to pray, an angel put its wings around him, and hugged him spiritually. When he finished praying he was greatly encouraged.

I know about the angel, because a person I know saw it. She told me the story. I thought, “This would make a painting.”

It took me several attempts to paint this, and here is the finished product. The idea here is that the angel of the Lord comes to encourage, and to do the bidding of God regarding our work in the ministry. He comes, and we don’t see the angels, but we are greatly encouraged, as we pray with the people of God, and as we study the Word.

There is a reason for gathering together. It is for encouragement. If you haven’t found fellowship in a long time, then you need to find a place where you can worship God, and pray with those who are believers in Christ.

I have never seen an angel. My attempt to draw, and paint was during much prayer. God helped me. Maybe someday this will be a famous painting. I have given it to God long ago. He helped me with it. The figures themselves seem cartoon like, but the angel seems real, and so is the pastor. I met him, and told this story to him and to his wife. She was not surprised that an angel came while he prayed. The pastor is, and was a very humble, but dynamic man of God. He listened to the Holy Spirit, and when He said to move, and start a new church, he did.

The Bible says that the angels of the Lord encamp around those who are His children. I hope this brings you encouragement. Find fellowship with believers, and you will be encouraged. Praying together works.

The church was bigger by the time I visited. When you struggle, your requests should be in front of a group of people who will pray with you about your situation. God has given us one another for fellowship, for praying together, and for strength. Some may have the joy of the Lord, and that is your strength.

I painted what I heard about. I am so glad I painted this. It encourages me every time I see it. The painting won a third prize in an area art show. It is acrylic, and I will never forget what I went through to get this painting. It is the only painting I have that has won anything. I hope you are encouraged to pray with others who love Christ.

The Bible says that two can put 10,000 enemies to flight. It also says that where two or three are gathered together, He is in their midst. The crowd needn’t be large, but when you are at peace with God, and with each other, your praying will be more effective.

I write this today, after putting this on the site several months ago. The gold in the painting is trying to portray the beauty of the Lord, and His angel. We worship the living God, not His angels. He wants us to worship Him in spirit, and in truth. His Word is alive, and effective. Use the Word in your prayers, and you will find them very effective.

Psalms 103:1 is wonderful. David commands his body to bless the Lord, and his soul to praise Him. All that is within him bows to God, in worship. Wow!

  8. Thanks for your article. My spouse and i have generally observed that the majority of people are eager to lose weight simply because wish to appear slim in addition to looking attractive. Having said that, they do not generally realize that there are many benefits so that you can losing weight as well. Doctors insist that fat people come across a variety of ailments that can be perfectely attributed to their excess weight. The great thing is that people who are overweight plus suffering from several diseases are able to reduce the severity of their illnesses by way of losing weight. It is easy to see a steady but marked improvement in health as soon as even a negligible amount of fat loss is reached.

  118. I don’t have any solutions for stopping hackers. I do pray over my blog, and write about what I think is important in life. Then I go through the comments. I find those that don’t make any sense, and delete them. I find those who come by too often. I think saying something once is enough. I delete them. Then I find some few who take a whole page and write the ABC’s backwards, or something else. I delete them.
    Some people are rude, crude, and mean. They don’t like the site. I delete them. This is a Christian blog, and I speak mainly to Christians about being humble, reading the Word of God, and living victoriously. Other times I speak to those who don’t know Christ. This is rare. I give them the solution for happiness, peace and joy in life. This is all I do. I am not worried about others. I am writing what is on my mind, and heart, and hackers don’t have much chance. I plead the blood of Christ over what I write and say, and He has kept me safe, and on here so far.
    I never wrote like this before, so I am having a wonderful time writing, and writing. God will help me, and if something happens, and the whole thing goes sour, I will start again. I love to write, and I share daily life, and what God puts on my heart for the day. Thank you for coming by Rubies Corner blog.

    1. I just saw your comment. Thank you for coming by Rubies Corner’s Blog. The story about the painting is that a preacher was discouraged with his congregation. They were not growing, and as he prayed, someone saw an angel behind him. It was there until he finished praying. You never know when an angel will show up. I painted this piece 3 times until I had this rendition of it. I love the story, and I tried to include the presence of the angel as a holy moment. Thus the gold. My problem was that the people look like they are in a cartoon…..I don’t care. I love the painting because of the story, and because I worked hard. It did win a third prize one time. Smile.
