Mutual friends = Andrew Strom. I appreciated his outspoken response during the Lakeland "revival" when I was taking heat over my stand that it was NOT God. I have enjoyed many of his other articles as well.
Thanks for the invite. I finally got a minute to check out your website. How cool! Kudoes for writing to reach the kids. They live in difficult times. I discovered on your blogsite that we have some mutual friends! Blessings, and keep up the good work.
Yes, there is a significant amount of self-published trash, but one needs look no further than TV (or films--I just saw the remake of The day the Earth...) to see professionally produced garbage (which proves that you can spend all kinds of money and still end up with a crappy product). So bad books abound, but the publishing world is getting a fresh new life from the seedlings that are growing even as the giants of the forest starve themselves from root rot. Happy New Year! Best of everything in 9!
The blessings we ask for this season
Aren't the kind that come wrapped with a bow;
We're asking for gifts from the heart,
Ones we need and never outgrow.
May we see in these bright decorations
With their colors and lights all aglow,
The beauty and wonder of life
That God's world was created to show.
Let the peace and goodwill of this season
Be feelings that we can extend
Far into the following year
To our neighbors, our family, and friends.
Most of all, may we always remember
To open our hearts every day and share all the love and the joy
In a special and meaningful way.
Hi Don, Thanks for the invite. Yes, you're right, maybe it is time for a book toting the other side of the coin. A bit harder getting into the mind and heart of the single man. I do like a challenge though. Tell me a bit about you. Share, share!
