The Blessing of First Fruits
Saturday, September 22nd, 2012 6:39am
Keywords: (None)

Lately I've been unwittingly embarking on an experiment in God's gracious hand of blessing.  Unwittingly in the fact that I didn't embark on it through my own choice.  God laid it on my heart and I followed.  The concept of "First Fruits" is this.  It's the first of whatever you ... View More

 
Making ends meet: It's not rocket science
Saturday, June 30th, 2012 11:11am
Keywords: (None)

On Facebook today someone brought up a very interesting point.  Namely, how it's so hard to make ends meet these days.  Yes, I agree, it's increasingly harder to make ends meet.  However, I don't think it's so much to do with prices, or less pay, or other things.  A number of our ... View More

 
Needs vs Wants
Friday, April 27th, 2012 11:37am
Keywords: (None)

Always be careful of what you *think* are needs, and what things really are. Case in point. A few years back I remember wanting some stuffed penguins and wanting them really badly. I mean, it was driving me up a wall. I got some freebie penguins at a convention I went to, had the things in my room o ... View More

 
A Fish Out Of Water
Saturday, November 19th, 2011 12:34pm
Keywords: (None)

One of the things that bugs me to no end is authors who run around acting like they're God's gift to writing.  As much as they might believe that, and as famous as they might be, they're just one tiny fish in a great big sea.  Sure, the more successful ones may be luckier, or just happen t ...

Keywords: (None)

I don't know if I should call this creepy, amazing, or simply proof that God is working behind the scenes in my writing, but I just came across one of the most amazing little vignettes this morning.  During the building of the story (I'm not going to tell you what it was, so as not to spoil the ...

If life were easy, we'd have nothing to write about
Monday, August 29th, 2011 9:10am
Keywords: (None)

One of the things I get a kick out of is how people look at my crazy life and say, "Your life sucks, I wish it were better."  I then kindly thank them for their thoughtfulness and promptly remind them that, as a writer, if I had a normal life, I'd have nothing interesting to write about. :roflY ...

Found this in an email and I though it was so bluntly true that I had to post it. Awesome!!  We complain about the cross we bear but don't  realize it is preparing us for the dip in  the road that God can see and we  can't.Whatever your cross, whatever your  pain, there ... View More

 
Blessings and the Book of Job
Friday, January 28th, 2011 10:34pm
Keywords: (None)

Not long ago I did a bible study on the Book of Job via David Jeremiah's bible teachings.  For those who have read it, it's a book about suffering and trials, heartache and blessing.  But the thing that stood out to me most in this book was the lesson of compassion to those who are hurting ...
