It’s all about Him <><

A funny thing happened on my way to Heaven. Actually, a lot of funny things happen on that road. Somehow, in my case anyway, I took the command to have the faith of child and…well…screwed it all up. If you find the word “screwed” to be un-Christian, I’ll just add that to my list of disappointments. It’s odd, though, isn’t it? If we can just capture and bottle that innocent faith the moment we first received God’s grace, then this journey would be oh so simple. But it ain’t. I find it ironic that we are more sure of our …


Spring?

Posted On May 12 2006 by

I’m really slipping. A month since my last post. I can blame it partially on my ailing back, which keeps me from sitting. I’ve decided that I severely strained a muscle in my lower back, thus the amazingly slow healing time. X-rays showed no spine problems. The problem is, I start feeling better and go out for a tumble in the backyard with my kids. The next day I’m right back where I started from. I feel good now. Sitting as I type this. You learn to appreciate little things like sitting down when it hurts to do so. Okay, …


Back to my back

Posted On Apr 15 2006 by

Okay, I hate to complain, but I will when I have a captive audience. I’ve got one of those back injuries (a strained or torn muscle, as far as I or my doctor can tell) that only hurts when I sit. No big deal, you say? Try writing from a prone position. It’s possible, but it gets annoying when you want your notes and reference books within easy reach. My bed looks like it belongs in a college dorm room. It’s not excruciating pain, but just annoying. Besides, I’ve learned never to say that I’m in extreme pain, or all …


Catching up

Posted On Apr 4 2006 by

Man, I’ve really let this place go. Okay, what’s happened since my last post? Let’s see. My dad took the GM buyout and announced that he and my mother are selling the house, buying a bigger trailer, and full-timing it. My daughter was devastated by this news, my wife informed them that they will not be “camping” in our driveway all summer, and I went through the house marking what I wanted before my sister beat me to it. Camy Tang got a 3 book contract with Zondervan. Way to go Camy! She won’t have time to reply to this. …


A fine day

Warning: this is an official rambling. I’m done with the winter semester! Okay, no one is overjoyed but me. True, I still have one semester left, but it’s only one class, and it’s an easy class. What this means, my friends, is that I have time to get back to the writing game. A good thing. Especially since I got one of those rejections from a big Christian publishing house that requested I send something else. I love it when that happens. True, I’d love it more if they sent a contract, but I’ll take a good compliment from an …


Flat on my back and novels #7 & 8

Posted On Mar 14 2006 by

Have you ever tried to write while in a prone position? I’m tellin’ ya, it ain’t easy, that’s why there’s been little to no activity on this blog for over a week. After almost a month and seven or eight trips to my very wealthy chiropractor, I’m still not up to sitting for long periods. Standing is slightly better. Walking is great, but I find it difficult to do for eight hours straight. Keep running into walls, chairs, co-workers and friends. However, I have read two other novels since my last post, A Clue for the Puzzle Lady by Parnell …
