Easter and Another Chance

        Just a brief post today before the holiday. My kids are both gonna be in. When they are home I tend to get lazy and spent the time with them.

        I did want to update you on my progress.  I’ve had a few more articles placed in music publications, and I am making progress on my book. Right now a graphic artist is designing a cover. I guess it is possible they could change their mind and say no, but I believe the odds of that are less than one percent. I hope to tell you more soon.

         Here is one lesson in Indie’s story. Indie always said it didn’t take any talent to be wicked.  Any fool could do that.  To be a decent person and not get take advantage requires creativity to the point of art. In ‘The Mandolin Case” you will see what he means, and I look forward to the chance to show his story.

        Here’s my Easter wish for all my readers. I pray all of you will get to live a life of grace and dignity. If people insist they must deny you that right, then I hope they will leave you alone so you can be happy. If they don’t, well, maybe the lessons I learned and have posted on my blog or the story of “The Mandolin Case” might give you some insight as to how you might out-wit them.

        After all, Easter is a time for rejuvenation, a time for a second chance.  Jesus knew none of us are perfect, and if we trust in Him we’ll all be set free. This will be true in Heaven for sure. I hope we don’t have to wait that long though. Maybe we’ll see some glimpse of Heaven while we are here on Earth. I believe God doesn’t want us to live in fear and intimidation. I’ve been very fortunate not to have to live that way. This Easter I pray for the same for all my friends and readers.

        All the best guys. I’ll be in and out untill Monday and will talk to you then.

    Bless yout heart and thanks for dropping by. One thing no one can deny; I might not have all that much talent but I am myself. I think we write so we can discover the little nuances that make us all unique.

    Hope you have a fine holiday.

    Dr. B….
    God takes care of us all. He loves His children. Of that, I have no doubt. He keeps me safe from those who would harm me.

    I can’t wait until that book comes out. I am looking forward to standing in line to get a real autograph! The things you share in your blog hearten me all the time.

    I hope one day to have a novel of my own to publish. There are plenty of family stories out there. You know how we Southerners are…We collect threads of family life and weave a tapistry.

    Again…Happy Easter to you and yours!

      Amen Cindy, Amen.

      I encourage you to pursue your story. It might take a decade to flesh it all out, but it is worth it. For me, the whole journey has been a labor of love. I’ve had so much fun and I’m just getting started.

      You are right. Southerners have a long history of writing and telling stories. That is how we pass it on.

  4. I hope you have a lovely weekend and holiday with your kids, Dr. B. You aren’t being lazy by spending time with them, you’re being a good and loyal father!

    I can’t wait to hear more news about the book :D.

      Maybe laid back is a better word. When we get the whole crowd together, I always stop and become more aware of my blessings than ever.

      Yeah it won’t be long on the book now, and there will be more. Old man River just keeps rolling along.

    Slightly late Easter greetings from Scotland. We’ve had a good Easter in our little group of linked churches in Argyll – we have just found ourselves a new pastor, after our previous minister retired last summer. We were told it might take years to achieve this, but it didn’t, and what better time for our new pastor to start with us than Holy Week and Easter? Couldn’t agree more with your comment about God not wanting us to live in fear and intimidation – a real shame that so many folk’s idea of Christianity is exactly that: fear and intimidation. Still looking forward eagerly to your book coming out, and maybe see you across here in Scotland sometime.
