Are You Writing After the Story Has Been Told?

By Posted on 0 454

I’ve begun the task of preparing my story for publishing. Quite honestly, I’m a little tired of my characters, and I’m no longer interested in returning to their neighborhood.

Now I must begin the job of extricating myself from them! That means editing without any conscious or feelings for those guys. We have broken up! I have a new interest and no matter how sexy, bewitching, or dangerous those characters were, it’s over!

In, But Not Of! What is Worldliness?

By Posted on 0 432

I don’t think I became aware of the dreaded ‘world’ until my teens. I knew that I couldn’t be hugged up in the corner with boys at blue light parties. I couldn’t sip out of the bottle they were passing. I couldn’t keep the ten dollar bill that I’d seen the old man drop even if my friends did think I was a fool to give it back. My mother hadn’t raised me like that and Sunday School had taught me that those things were wrong.

More Love, More Joy, More Money!

By Posted on 2 724

Today, I see so many people I love in need, not of the basics, but of those extraneous things that we all crave. More love, money, friendship, a better lifestyle, and increased favor are things that most people could use.

Blessedly, God has promised us all of those particular things if we have sown those particular seeds! You may have to go out of your way to be helpful and friendly to the boss or the co-worker that you secretly despise. You may have to make the effort to support a friend’s endeavor even if you’re too tired.

What Would You Get Rid of if Tomorrow Wasn’t Promised?

Hanging in my closets are precious and highly prized business suits, crisp blouses and shirts, high heels, and leather handbags. I keep waiting for the perfect person to give them to, and I can’t accept that nobody wants this junk.

After I am gone, my daughters will have the daunting task of culling through this junk to either give it away or toss it out. I’ve had to do the same task a few times and I know where of I speak.

Diving In

Do you bake the best cakes or pies in your family? Can you design everything from muu-muus to wedding dresses? Do you write great poems or tell great stories? Can you add up figures in your head faster than anyone else? “Then do the math!” That”s the talent God has given you. How you choose to make it work is up to you.

Medical Service Providers in Your Home

Say no to deliverymen’s requests for drinking water, pop, or the restroom. These people aren’t your friends and they are getting paid for what they’re doing. Don’t allow them to call you if they are ahead of schedule and just want to pop in at their convenience. If my mom was watching “Jeopardy” or “Wheel of Fortune”, I wasn’t stopping her pleasure for someone else’s convenience.
