I just started making MP4’s of some of the books.  See what you think of this one…and let me know.  The first three to send me a message will get an autographed free copy.

Happy Thanksgiving and on to Christmas!

Uncategorized Comments Off on Happy Thanksgiving and on to Christmas!

We had a marvelous holiday; we spread it out over two days so we could all see each other safely and that was good.  We ate together, walked the fields, played with the animals, and did some board games; it was all good and we are thankful to the good Lord for His blessings and safety for us this year.

We are thankful for all those of you who have been buying our books and reading them and leaving reviews-thank you so much for all the encouragement you have sent me this year.  We managed to get 13 books out this year, and that’s a record for us.  We have 5 in the pipeline for after Christmas, another mystery, another omnibus, 3 new books in a sci-fi series, and another devotional.  Next year will be busy.

There is a marvelous little song going around now based on two verses out of the book of Psalms called I would have Lost Heart.  You can find it on Youtube-they do a background of pines in the snow, and it is a comforting thing to watch and memorize, and it does stick with you.  The words have so much meaning for us at this time of the year.

I would have lost heart unless I had believed, that I would see the goodness of the lord, in the land of the living.  Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD! (Psalm 27, 13-14).  In this time when people are dying of Covid at a rate, last I heard of 50 an hour, we need to have courage as we do what we can to help each other.

Have courage, wear masks around each other, wash your hands, and read books-let your mind soar away from the stress and hurt in the safety of your home.   Put off trips you don’t need to make, stay out of crowds; we love you all and hope to hear from you soon.    You can leave me a message here or on my pm on my FB page. God bless.

 

And don’t forget-I can now safely post Christmas jokes-have a look!

Uncle James is live!

Our newest devotional, just in time for Christmas, is now available on Amazon;

Uncle James, A Servant of God, to Us https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08MVG23JX  is an ideal way to start off your new year learning from the letter gifted us.

The book of James has for centuries caused problems for the church hierarchy.   Some felt it took away from the teaching of salvation by faith alone; Martin Luther disliked this little book so much that in his original translation, he took it out of the rest of the New Testament and put it in an appendix in the back!  There is controversy about which of the three James in the Bible wrote this letter: whether James was trying to tone down Paul’s message, whether or not it was written only to the Jews and not to the budding church; whether it was too practical to be of any spiritual import as Luther thought.  James is a book of social justice; a book of unity, written to emphasize the duty each of us has to accept each other and to travel the path Jesus laid down for us. If you want to discover what the Bible teaches about social justice and equality, James is the place to start. This little book of devotionals, based on James’  letter to us,  helps you achieve clarity, understanding of our duty to others and may just change your life.
