Golden Cottage Happenings



Greetings Gail-Friends:

It's been a while...'cause I've been super busy.  I haven't been writing much lately because I've been focusing on art.  A friend  and fellow artist, Joy, and I are sharing booth space in the Green Circle Art Gallery in Cocoa Village.  I had some paintings done, but needed more, so that's what I've been doing, Gail-Friends.  Here's a photo of our space:

Last month, Rabbi Jem and I went to the Authors for Authors writers conference where I met Yvonne Mason, a fellow Georgia gal.  She invited me to be on her radio show, which I was happy to do.  Yvonne is so interesting to talk with, and she really put me at ease.  The show was not scripted, so we just chatted for an hour -- not so much about my books, but about God working our lives.  After the introductory song, the talking begins at the 4:45 mark Here's the link to the show:   Gail Golden interview

 Mr dear husband and I are members of the Space Coast Writers Guild, and he entered their recent short story contest -- Mischief.  Well, being the mischievous type, he entered a story -- and won second prize -- and $150.  I'm so proud of him!  




The plan-demic continues, and I've decided to keep my focus on Adonai.  He is my healer.  Sometimes I'm tempted to get anxious and/or depressed about the way things are going in my beloved country, but Adonai is also my Comforter and the Lifter of My Head.  Here are a couple of paintings I've done in the past that I hope will encourage you to keep your eyes on Him, too.




Focusing on God's Word, my blessings, helping others, doing art, listening to praise music -- all of these things are wise choices for times like these.  Also, I'm focusing on the beauty around me.  Here's some of it: 

I live in paradise - this is a marina near Cocoa Village.

my dear husband and our blind doxie reading the paper together - precious!

Blessings to you all, dear Gail-Friends.  Would love to hear what's happening in your world!



  1. Love your artwork and photos! Your dog looks like my childhood dogs, Pixie and Sheena. Sweet!

    1. Awww - doxies are such great dogs - stubborn, but devoted! Born blind - we rescued her from the SPCA. She's an amazing dog and deeply committed to guarding and protecting us. Getting old now -- but when the doorbell rings, she's like a raging pit bull. Thank you for the sweet compliment and for stopping by today.


Thank you so much for stopping by today and taking the time to leave a comment! I read each one of them and love to respond back to those who visit! Blessings to you.
