Computer problems have kept me away for a few days...Incredible! In this era, life can be so darned complicated. I don't get it!
I'm not going to talk your ears off here (btw, ear is what comes out if you type era too fast -- just thought you'd want that useless info.). I am presently trying to juggle several things and, unfortunately, there are still only 24 hours in a day -- another sign that modern tech. is still not what it's hyped up to be.
As well as doing O.F. daily, I'm still writing of course. An editor contacted me for permission to use part of a book for an article, but he needed an answer -- today EST. I didn't read it until an hour ago because I just got back from two days elsewhere and we're PST here. So, we'll see what transpires... The article touches a subject I've been plunged into again and again over the past few years -- suffering and how God uses it in our lives.
We cannot be familiar nor indifferent to the suffering in this world. What is important is that we bring Christ into the painful situations for He is the great Redeemer, the One who pours light into darkness.
Thank you for praying for the suffering children in particular. There are so many of them everywhere and our prayers are vital to them.
Returning to the subject of writing, this week I recorded an accompanying CD for my new book, Heaven Help Me Raise These Children: http://www.carepointministry.com/heavenhelp.html
Lots of thoughts, lots to say, but that's all for now 'cause I have 137 pending emails (yikes).
