For my birthday, recently, my family bought me a new keyboard for our ministry computer. It’s an amazing thing because it is ergonomic. While the layout of the keys may be what you’d expect, the layout of the whole of the keyboard certainly is not. And, as someone who has done an awful lot of typing, this is no easy switch!!
I’ll be honest I quote lines from the Lord of the Rings often in my daily life. Mostly whilst among close family members as they understand me, and they too are Lord of the Rings fans! At the start of the first film, Bilbo says to Gandalf, the wizard: “I want to see mountains, Gandalf!”
While being the awesome husband I am, I kindly drove jo to work again. It meant I could do some shopping without making a second trip, and we could some time together in the car. She got to have a couple of hours in the office and come home again.
I was a reading a post by a good friend this morning - Alan - over on his blog, Devotional Treasures. He titled it "The folly of doing it your way". As is his usual approach, there was a scripture at the beginning, which I read, and then he took some time to bring the scripture to life in his ever unique style. It was taken from the Old Testament (Numbers 14:40-45 NASB), but is still a fairly familiar piece of scripture. I'm not gonna give a little summary: you can read the scripture for yourself, or, even better, go read Alan's post! Anyway, the last half of one verse really jumped at me this morning:
I'm working on two books at the moment. And by working, I mean I have a title cover for both; I've got one book basically ready for publishing, and one book about half the way through as I rewrite some previous works into what is already a 3 part series. I've been working on writing a book for nearly 20 years...the one I began back then is still where it was when I first wrote it...it's a good book, but I've never really finished it.
