I Love a Good Mystery!

3 Springing Texas Things!

How do you characterize this state? Have you ever visited? I’m reminded of the blind men who examined the elephant with each one declaring that what they felt was similar to other, completely different items: snake, rope, tree trunks, walls, etc. Anyone visiting Texas might have the same experience unless they visit places in all the extreme areas of our state.

But from the Panhandle to the coast, the Rio Grande to the Sabine River, there are three details of the springtime that all of Texas shares!

Item #1 is the Texas weather. Every foot of this state is prone to hail, wind, flooding, and tornadoes.

Item #2 is high school proms. Okay, every state has proms in the spring, but can any other state boast of the largest homeschool prom in the world?

Item #3 is fairs and festivals. Texas has over 100 spring floral trails along with fairs and festivals with all sorts of themes.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll share my recent experiences with all of the above. Since most of my stories are set in and around the East Texas area, I love sharing the little gems that I’ve recently found.

Stay tuned.

Marji is a recently "graduated" homeschooling mom whose twin girls have blessed her by sticking around the nest for a little longer. She spends her days directing the children’s music program at her church and working with the authors of Write Integrity Press to put out the best possible version of their books. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.
