Janey's News

Friday 23rd June 06, 10 pm PST

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:

Lots of thoughts, lots to say, but that's all for now 'cause I have 137 pending emails (yikes).

Yes it can be complicated but if life was easy we would never learn anything.

Neurotic mom -- Thanks for reminding me that we wouldn't learn anything if life was easy. I could've been a genius by now with all I should've learned. I think I must be slooooooooooooowwwwwwwww...or maybe my frustration at details quenches my capacity to learn. Anyway, thanks for the comment.

Diana Joy -- thanks. I know you're praying. Me too for you.

I don't blame it on being slow or blonde i just blame it on being a canadian LOL guess you can't use that excuse eh?

Janey Demeo said...

I don't have any excuses for being slow...and neither does my computer; I'm starting to pray for the Lord to provide me with a brand new, really USEABLE laptop. The computer problems I'm having are not liveable. Trust me...

Thanks to neurotic mom & neurotic anybodies who care enough to pray. You are kind.
