Welcome to my site

What can I say? I'm so pleased that you've come here. I've spent 5 years blogging, more than that building websites and have been writing "professionally" since 2003. I'm here to help writers with their writing, encourage people through this life, and point them to Jesus. That's the most important thing. So stay tuned. Check this site regularly as "some of the features" may change. I'll need help from time to time, because I'm not perfect. If you're perfect, please go to another site. I'm pretty sure you won't fit in here.

Unbalanced Scales

I'm sure everyone in the U.S. already knows that we are in danger. The problem is that so much of the rhetoric and the old rules are just antagonizing things.

For instance, only weeks ago all the media could do was talk about going over a fiscal cliff. Now, however, that cliff seems to have disappeared and they are talking about spending ceilings. I don't know about you, but this tells me that the people in Washington (D.C) don't know what they're talking about.

Then comes the IRS looming on the horizon. It's hard enough to get around with their hands in our pockets year round, but they expect an extra-special bonus via our Income Tax. We've been gritting our teeth and baring this for years, but now it's becoming harder and harder to find the forms to fill out, even if you can understand them, so you can send them in and pay that tax. I'm of the inclination that if they want my money they should come and fill out all the forms and make it easy. I'm not one of these people who expect freebies. It's just that the founding fathers didn't get paid, and if they did it was by their district, and probably in feed or livestock. I say we go back to that. You want to get out of our $15 trillion debt, then stop paying the people who aren't listening to us when we say, "No taxes."

I know, that's idealistic, but this country was built on ideals, and hard work made it work. That is until the government decided to pay for those who didn't want to work. Take a good idea and present it to Congress or the Senate and the first thing they do is appoint a special task force to investigate the problem. Oh, and all those tax problems we face, they do not face. How'd that happen. Whatever happened to "We the People..?"

August CFRB Tour

I will admit that I have my own ideas about a really great Christian vampire novel, and neither Never Ceese, by Sue Dent, nor today's Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider, by Ellen C. Maze really grasp the full import of that idea. Nonetheless both are great works. Today we will be looking at a different approach in Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider.

In this story a writer of vampire novels, Beth Rider, is visited by an unusual creature. She calls them the Rakum, half-human, half-demon. It seems the Rakum have a grudge against Beth Rider because she's been writing all these Christian books about vampires, which comes very close to exposing them. So this creature marks her, making her his "rabbit". The other Rakum can smell the sent and seek her out.

Again we are talking about spiritual warfare, about the curse of sin verses the mercy of God. In this extraordinary novel you will be drawn into this conflict and come out with a greater understanding of the battle you are in. Better than that you're going to learn, without realizing it, how to win those battles you find yourself in. For that reason you may find your own life crowded in by the Rakum. But as Jesus said, "Do not be afraid, I have overcome the world." He not only overcame the world, but death, the grave and every possible temptation. He is our hope, our victory.

Follow Beth into a world of anxiety, terror, and ultimate victory.
