I was in NY last week with the family. It was great! I didn’t realize that we hadn’t been there (as a family) in about 8 yrs. I’ve been myself since and my father has too. It was really nice to get reacquainted–again–with the family. Hopefully we’ll be able to stay in touch this time. So far I have 7 family members on Facebook! That really helps a lot.
I should have copied my latest note from FB on here because it was really good, but I made a discovery this weekend. I was reading my last post (the excerpt from the book), and I was like, “whoa…this subject is kinda controversial…wait a minute, people are going to actually read this. People are going to read this?? They’re going to be mad at me!” At the moment I knew that my calling is more than just writing entertaining Christian fiction and life changing non-fiction. It’s about rocking the boat and challenging beliefs. There a lot of unnecessary practices & thought processes that we Christians take on that are just plain stupid, and some of need to have our cage rattled a bit. It all makes sense though. I always describe myself as being not your average ____[fill in the blank]____. I don’t think like you think I should, and I don’t act like you think I should. I’m just not like the masses. What I think about politics, relationships, race, etc. would probably shock you because I’m just a “matter of fact” kind of person. I don’t care about what’s popular and what everyone else is doing. I love truth, and truth is what I “preach.” Most people don’t like the truth, therefore the stuff I write is going to stir some people up. Maybe if I remember when I get home I’ll copy that note on here.
I actually had quite a few more things to say, but I had a visitor and lost my train of thought…not that I really had one since this about shear randomness. Oh well. If I remember later, or if I just feel like writing again, I’ll come back later. Ciao!
