Inspired by . . . a reason to celebrate

For those of you who follow me on Facebook or Twitter you may have caught the fact that this is my birthday week!

Why just celebrate one day, when you can celebrate all week long!!?

I like to celebrate by giving gifts, rather than receiving them. The blessing that comes from giving is the best gift of all, don't you think?

I started the week by announcing that my eBook, Heart's Desire is on sale all week for just 99 cents! If you're looking for some summer reading, or know someone who is, please check it out & spread the word! {reviews are always appreciated!}

For those of you who prefer to hold a book in your hands, or want something a little more tangible to put the wrapping paper around, I'm giving away three paperback copies of my books this week. I'll draw three winners on Sunday, June 22nd. Each winner will be able to choose one book from the following published titles, Heart's Desire, Gladness for Mourning, and Starflower.  First page excerpts for all my books can be found at junecaedmon.com, if you need help deciding which to choose!

Enter to win at the bottom of this post!

And just to keep the excitement going, beginning on Friday, June 20th, Starflower {eBook version} will be FREE on Amazon for 3 days! {sale ends June 22nd} Spread the word!

My sweet Kitty is here to get this party started!




For those of you who haven't met Kitty before, she was dumped on our property last summer. After doing some research, we figured out that she has a mild case of Cerebellar Hypoplasia, which has similar symptoms, but is not the same disorder, as cerebral palsy.




If you'd like to read about why Kitty is the perfect cat for me, you can find that post HERE.

Unfortunately, my husband is highly allergic to cats. So Kitty has to live outside. If you'd like to read about how I made it safe for Kitty to be outside alone at night, you can find that post HERE.

  1. Well, Happiest Birthday, June!! Wishing you the best day (and week) ever! My perfect birthday celebration is dinner out with my family. Which is just exactly what I got to do for my birthday a couple of months ago - which greatly took out the sting of turning 60!!

    Kitty is adorable. I'm thinking that she just might be part of a perfect birthday for you!


  2. The girl knows how to throw a party! I'm grabbing the confetti to say thanks for being in my world. Your creative spirit always adds a bit of a spark of wonder to my day. I hope your special day simply shines.

    My birthday? A few of my nearest and dearest ... and some outrageously delicious food. Cupcakes please. And let's eat dessert first!


  3. I have hardly been on FB this week and I'm about to go out of town now. Just wanted to quick visit some of my favorite blogs. Happy happy birthday, dear June! May God richly bless you today and always. Now, I hope Kitty is unable to reach the birds. She sure is a cutie though. Have a great day!!!

  4. P.S. Downloaded the book! Will peruse it tonight at my dad's house.

  5. Happy Birthday, June. A blessed day and days ahead for you and yours.

    That picture of your cat's paws is too good! What a great photo! That would look great in a poster size on the wall!

  6. Happy Birthday, June! Mine is Saturday and I'm so excited! :) My favorite way to celebrate is with friends and family, and of course, cake. There must be cake. :)

    Heart Hugs, Shelly <3

  7. Happy, Happy Birthday, sweet friend! I agree...celebrate all week! I love birthdays. Wish I could celebrate with you in person. Much love. xoxo

  8. Your kitty is so sweet! Love the details you captured!

  9. A blessed birthday week, June!!! My perfect celebration would have to be with family surrounding me, and a buffet meal! ha ha! We love that! Or a trip somewhere with the whole family. Got your book for my Kindle! Have a happy weekend! patsy
