Interesting Book I Am Reading


During Sunday School Class, the topic of a book came up that sounded very intriging.

Case for Christ/Case for Faith Compilation [Kindle Edition]

Lee Strobel

Image of Lee Strobel

Lee Strobel (www.LeeStrobel.com), with a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale Law School, was the award-winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and a spiritual skeptic until 1981. His books include four Gold Medallion winners and the 2005 Christian Book of the Year (coauthored with Garry Poole). He and his wife live in Colorado.

First of all to find out that he was an atheist when he first began was a surprise to me.  He only began to investigate due to his wife becoming a Christian.  His book has become a movie if you are not patient enough to read a book so look to see if it is available in DVD in your area.

Sorry I am not giving away about the book….read it for yourself and I will say that you will be glad that you did.  Just do not expect to get much done around the house as it is one of those can’t put it down books once you start to read it.

Writing 101, Day Nine: Changing Moccasins — Point of View


writing-101-june-2014-class-badge-2

Changing Moccasins — Point of View

Write the scene from three different points of view.

There once was a Woodshop owner whose life had gone astray for many years.  His woodshop layed dormant and gathered many a cobweb while the two gnome guards stood out front and weathered the storms and the Wicked and Brutal Tennessee Mother Winter.  They would see the Woodshop owner from time to time pass by without a single glance their way.  Tears began to fall from their eyes causing them to fade in color over the many years.

Then one day in the Early Summer of 2014, something changed in the Woodshop owner.  He was suddenly walking straight toward them with a smile upon his face.  Day after day, into the long hours of the night he began to work in the shoppe cleaning and sorting.  Tossing out and putting items into big white sacks.   Oh how the guards shivered in fear as they anticipated the worst as the Woodshop owner approached with the big broom.  He simply moaned and swept as he placed them back in their places after he had given them a clean place to stand.  They were encouraged by this new change.  Hoping that they were able to stay.

They watched nervously as one day the Woodshop owner and his wife came outdoors with two new gnomes that were fresh in paint and very sharply dressed.  They both felt their hearts sink as they viewed the smiles on the two owners faces as they rounded the corner of the main house.  Oh, they were not walking toward them at all but to the front portion of the main building where the other gnomes had their posts.  Who was having to leave?  Would they all be allowed to stay among the plants out there?

Several days past with more and more of the white sacks being loaded out.  The Woodshop owner’s wife began to stop often to visit, commenting each time on how nice things were beginning to look to the Woodshop owner’s new beginning to a new life.

During one of the visits, the Woodshop owner’s wife stopped and nealt down to get a closer look at the two of us standing guard on the porch.  She simply smiled and continued on to speak with her husband.  The following day after leaving they returned and the wife strolled out to the workshop and stopped at the porch area where the two gnomes were guarding.  She smiled as she picked up the two and tucked them gently into her arms.  The Woodshop owner noticed her and asked where she was heading with his gnomes with a heavy concern in his voice.  She softly replied for him not to fret that she would be kind and show lots of love and compassion.  She told him that she was not going far away and that they would not be gone long.

She had prepared a work area all lined with a soft surface as she gingerly sat each gnome down to look at each other.  She simply said poor babies and disappeared into another room.  She sat at the work area for several hours taking a break to allow them to dry in between, rotating between each and snapping photographs to document their transformation.

The Woodshop owner kept coming in to refill his coffee often, and would peek over trying not to let her notice.  She would smile and ask him if he wanted to see the progress and he would come running over to comment on each one with a big smile.  The two gnomes suddenly felt quite important and quite loved.  Within two days every detail was touched up and refreshed and the pair were returned to their prior posts on the porch of the Woodshop to stand guard.  They both suddenly felt very important.

The Woodshop owner came out to view their new positions on the porch and was smiling.  He kissed his wife.  Then he returned back in to the Woodshop, feeling content.

That was the story of the Guard gnomes, the Woodshop owner and his wife.

Weekly Writing Challenge: Dear TammyeHoney


pooky12

Weekly Writing Challenge: Dear ____________________

by Erica on October 28, 2013

To participate, tag your post with DPchallenge and include a link to this post, to generate a pingback and help others find the challenges. Please make sure your post has been specifically written in response to this challenge. We’ll highlight some of our favorites on Freshly Pressed on Friday, and in our monthly newsletter.

For this week’s writing challenge, channel your inner Abigail Von Buren. Experiment with the question and answer format. Taking inspiration from a question you’ve been asked recently, whether in conversation with a friend or sent in from a reader, don your best counselor hat and share your expertise.

Not up for kickstarting your career as an advice columnist? We’ve got a few more ways to help get you involved with this week’s focus on advice.

  • What’s the best, or worst, piece of advice you’ve ever gotten?
  • You’re the most important writer in the world, and everyone will be tuning in to your blog to listen to the one bit of knowledge you most want to share. What is it?
  • Do you live by the advice you give? Sure, it’s easy to dish out opinions, but are you a pillar of your own beliefs?

I give lessons on Cooking, Crocheting, Sewing and Knitting on a regular basis.  I do not feel this is classified as advice.  It is simply someone who has worked the problem successfully at a prior time who is able to lend a helping hand to someone who has never walked that mile yet.

Helping a friend who is a new mother and is nursing her first baby my advice is very simple.  The baby will let you know when things are not quite right.  If things are flowing in a set pattern and routine then life is good.  The plumber never puts in new pipes if there is not a problem.

If a problem is not going to make a difference a year from now, perhaps it does not need to be a top priority on the list.  A lot of problems have a way of working themselves out on their own without doing anything but praying for the correct way for God’s will to be done.  I always to suggest to pray for three days on the same subject before making a decision.  This gives a person time to think with a clearer head and thought patterns.

Just thinking before you speak as to how it will have an effect on others will sometimes change the wording that would have otherwise been blurted out.

Remembering others and that they have feelings that can get hurt.  To never speak when angry and to bite the tongue if it is going to be a cruel comment will save on an embarasing moment later on.

What questions as my reader would you like to see answered here?

Submit your questions and I will be glad to honestly answer them for you.  (Or find a great source for your answer)

TammyeHoney’s Advice column is now open to her readers.

Bring on the questions….

I am ready and waiting..

Daily Prompt: Hello Book It Has Been A While


Daily Prompt: Bookworm

Tell us about the last book you read (Why did you choose it? Would you recommend it?).

To go further, write a post based on its subject matter.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us WORDS.

I have had two books sitting on my shelf that I have been reading.  For some reason, reading does not come as easy to me now that I am older as it did in my youth.

Not counting my Kindle subscription for http://www.magazines.com/crochet-today

Crochet Today! Magazine

I read that every month when it comes out as I have students who need new patterns. I also did not include all my cookbooks as they are reference books.


http://www.amazon.com/Eat-Pray-Love-Everything-Indonesia

http://www.amazon.com/Look-Me-Eye-Life-Aspergers

The most intriguiging book that I actually did audio was debated when I was in college and I was in the Literary Guild.  I was on the panel and due to the book being auditory I picked up a lot that the basic reader on the panel did not.

Product Details
http://www.amazon.com/Horse-Whisperer-Nicholas-Evans

The audio version was more indepth and you could feel what the author was getting across by the tones of the voices.  I do not kiss and tell so you are on your own to find out details.  I am not the person who sits in the room and tells you the ending of the movie before it is over.

My next purchase is to get the two hard cover books on audio.  I seem to actually get through books much better that way.  Since my kindle died due to being plugged into the wrong outlet, I have to decide what new one I want to get.  That will start me on my way to my audio adventure.

Daily Prompt: A Life In Review


Daily Prompt: Four Stars

Write a review of your life — or the life of someone close to you — as if it were a movie or a book.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us LIFE.

540309_394119673963962_1544795604_n

 

Our story opens in a small town outside of Buffalo NY.  It is hard times.  Life is not easy in the 50’s,  a couple with seven children.

Working in the Bethlehem Steel Mill is the job that is available.  It is a hard dirty job.  Luckily it is a job and puts food on the table.

292266_3027546051061_704291546_n

 

582668_3028146386069_1393269719_n

 

As the family grows so do the bonds between each of the family members.

134005_4229646492544_620923831_o

 

Being the baby of the family, at eighteen he goes off to war to do three tours.  He meets a gal from New York State and starts a family of his own.

326308_4105852397769_1829807860_o

 

They go through good times and bad times.  The children grow up and start families of their own.

He becomes divorced.

972338_10200504640111640_658701519_n

 

He is a unique person.  Some days in a world of his own.  He decides to become married again and start a different life.

Some of the old life still creeps in and haunts him.

251679_1882356171753_6214781_n

 

He tries hard to cope with it from day to day.

184427_10200501691397924_1103692988_n

 

Just like his gnome…he travels through life with each day being a new adventure.  Coping with the past, yet looking forward to what tomorrow will bring.




This is Eman, my hubby.  A life in review.  So many pages undisclosed.  A mystery to my readers.  A must see the movie or read the book to get the juicy details.

Enjoy.

Daily Prompt: Wake Up Call


Daily Prompt: Dulled

You encounter a mysterious man offering you a magic potion that, once sipped, will make one of your senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch) super sharp — but dull the others. Will you sip it, and if so, what sense do you choose?

For an extra challenge, link your response to this prompt

As the original was written, I decided to go with a fictional story to intrigue the senses.

Shelly was a young girl by some standards, yet old by others.  She had lived a unique life, most would never know.  She was a loner, a stranger to even those who knew her.  When she met Jake, she had felt like she had drank a magical potion.  She felt alive again.  She felt a part of herself that she did not even know had existed.  She awake in the morning and was excited to start each new day.  She could hardly wait to see what new adventures they were going to explore.

The senses that had awakened in her were ones that are deeper than the basic five.  She suddenly had felt alive again.  She was feeling emotions that she had not encountered in many years of her life.  Emotions of joy, happiness, laughter, a feeling in the heart where there had been a void.  With these feelings, she had also found a dark side of Jake.  It was a side that she was not sure of and not certain how to cope with.  Jake liked to drink a lot of vodka.

They were well into the marriage before the secret began to unfold and come to light.  She was now faced with a dilemma.  What would she do.  Would she stay and hope for just the happy days to try and stay as much as they could.  Were there going to become less and less of the happy days as the dark side took over his life?  She did not believe in divorce.  She was so many miles away from home.  She could feel the sadness slowly creeping into her veins like a poison lurking in the night.  Slowly pouncing upon each shred of happiness that she had found that had brought her back to a happy place and had made her feel alive again.

She had tried to talk to Jake about the dark side to only get the answer “I know” each time.  When she would ask if he was going to get help or wanted to try to make a go of it.

She was at a crossroad in her life.  At a place that she did not like.  She had to make a decision.  She had to do something or be sucked into the black hole of  despair that she had walked into once before to become a walking zombie.  Just an existence.  Not able to feel emotions, not able to express any feeling or compassion.  Feeling totally numb about life.  She could feel herself slowly slipping back there again.

Jake had the ability to make her laugh.  When he was not preoccupied and was not drinking, he could make her so happy by just making her laugh.  There had been a time when they watched tv and cuddled.  How she had longed for that now.  How he used to want to dance while she was cooking and he would sweep her off her feet, just for a brief few minutes, as they would dance closely then she would carry on with dinner. They always danced to the same song that he sang in her ear or played on the stereo.

She had come to resent Smirnoff Red Top and felt as if it were a “Red Head” that he was cheating on her with.  In a way, she was right.  It had cheated her of a perfect marriage.  It had cheated her of a life of love and happiness.  It had stripped away the joy and had brought tears and sadness in it’s place.  It had stripped away the sexual desires that had once been there.  They came with less and less frequency as well.

She had felt as if she were living in a huge balloon that had a small pin prick in it and the air was slowly being seeped from it.  She felt no desire to be with another man.  It was certainly nothing like that.  She truly loved Jake with all her heart.  The decision to stay and suffocate or leave and breathe was what she had to sleep on.  When she was to awake she would have her answer.  She would pray about it for a week and each night she would try to cleanse her mind of all thoughts of the day as to not tarnish her decision.

The week was over, as she made preparations to get ready for bed she knew her decision would come that next morning with an answer from God.  She again prayed and as she layed down to go to sleep, she again felt that same calm and peacefulness that she had not felt for a while.  She felt as if she had again drank from that bottle of magic potion.

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 6


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

 

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html
http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/p/2012-to-z-challenge-sign-up-list.html

So excited to start the journey today to tell you about an awesome site that found me…

http://homecomingvets.com/

About

 

This blog is dedicated to Canada’s homecoming vets and their families.

People forget that soldiers returning home are not the only victims of the wars they’ve fought. So are their loved ones, families and friends. They need as much social assistance as the soldiers themselves. Those coming home are forever changed. They have experienced things the rest of us can’t imagine. They carry this psychological burden for the rest of their lives.

After eight years of fighting in Afghanistan, the public needs to get behind our vets and demand the social services they deserve and need. This is the most important tribute we can give our returning vets for the sacrifices they’ve made on behalf of our country.

Our next stop on the road trip is to a different type of blog that I really love a DIY spot.

http://diaryofamadcrafter.wordpress.com

I’m an avid crafter, and I love cooking and baking. I’m a nail technician and a salesassociate at Michael’s Art’s & Crafts (where I spend my entire paycheck before I get it each week). When I’m not working, I’m crafting and spending time with my husband and our pupperoni, Roscoe. I made my first shirt when I was 5 years old on my little, yellow, plastic sewing machine. I have my Mom to thank for that! I always remember crafting with her since before I can remember. When I was about 20, I became a vegan and started cooking up a storm, because if you’re a vegan, you better learn to cook! I started off with the Boca burgers and all that processed stuff, and realized that although it was vegan, wasn’t too healthy. Enter The Natural Gourmet Institute. GREAT experience, but I’d NEVER do it again….I had a 2 hour commute every morning and evening, and once I started my internship at Pure Food and Wine, I would be in the city ALL day and then come home, pass out and wake up to do it all over again. On my weekends, I’d have my nail clients, leaving me with no time to do anything! After school, I began working at Pure Food and Wine, in which I still had a pretty sucky commute, but LOVED the job. After I left Pure, I pretty much enjoyed having about half a year doing NOTHING, and then began working at Michaels. Two months after I started there, my husband proposed to me, and alllll the stressfulness of planning a wedding left me with no time, or energy to cook, or craft. FINALLY, about 5 months after the wedding, I’m back!! It took way too long, but I’m LOVING it.

So anyyyways, I started this blog because whenever I’d post something on Pinterest, I’d have to try to describe how I made it in as little words as possible in a little comment box….obnoxious. So now that I have a blog (which everyone on my Facebook prompted me to create after my endless picture posts of what I created throughout the day) and I can finally share with everyone what I’ve made, and help them create it too! Because there is nothing in the world I love more than getting someone as excited as I do about making something your own! Pretty much everything that I’ve been making lately has been inspired by Pinterest; in my opinion, the best invention EVER.

Be sure to like her on Face Book while you are there too…

Next stop is for a great place to find a good laugh or two…

http://imagesonconcretewordsonpaper.wordpress.com

just as the title says this blog is about words, images, solid, statements, foundations, what goes on paper, what is on the ground, growth, and whatever the blogger

SAMSUNG

part of my family knows about a terrifying moment of my life when I was finding myself as a teen. I was routinely use for sexual purposes by a man who at first I thought was a friend, I could trust. He took me to a place an apartment suite in the west end of Edmonton. A suite he had access to which became a part of my dirty secret for over 3 years. He even took me to his home and had on the bed he shared with his wife, I felt evil I hate myself for not saying anything at the time.
He gave me money and made sex into means of gaining favour from others. I was confused and hurt.
I had come out of the Glenrose School Hospital for sick children’s, 3rd floor mental health ward for children. I was not behaving like a boy, more like a female. I love sewing, cooking, flowers, crafts, etc. I was told that I could not do those things and put in a workshop to do so called ‘boys’ stuff. I was so confused and struggled with the fact that I was called a fag or sissy yet confused, I liked others boys I wanted to be housewife one day. The sexual things started as I was beginning to come out of the hospital at a family gathering, a engagement party with both families of my brother and sister-in-law. He tickled me, he fed me grapes made me feel, confused. He confused me.
I held that into myself from my family and friends until I was thirty some. Most of my family believed me and accepted me except the man’s side of our family, my brother. It hurt me to share it. I was treated like I did an evil thing.
When I was in my forty’s I struggle for the last time with being in the body. I had tried prayer, religion, spirituality, and more religion, you get the picture. Then I decided to transition to have Gender Reassignment Surgery to bring my body to meet my mind and soul of a woman. In January 2009 my body match with my mind and soul. I am now a female.
Weird, that some members of my family decided to agree with my brother and say I was the liar.
I was not always honesty or truthful, I hide my desire to be a woman, even made statements against it. Yet always finding the woman the female inside of me.
I have been very alone. Very little acceptance by my family or even attempts of getting to know the female I have become. My friends I could understand but my family, not all a few of my nephews have talked to me and keep in touch with me, a few hellos from some.
I would love to go to family events. Yet from a few contacts early in my transition to weddings, felt like my family was uncomfortable with me.
I just feel like a outcast the black evil,….
I live a moral life, in that I care about others. I am more of a humanist then a Christian, actually more of a agnostic or atheist if you want a title.
I am though Axcella the daughter of Peter and Ruth. I am related to my the sons and daughter of Peter and Ruth.
This is written as a result of watching the movie, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” check it out if you want.
This was what was on my mind.

A succinct and eclectic Electronics Engineer by profession although I preferred to teach as a passion. In this journey called life all i can say is : C’EST LA VIE ! CHEERS!

Since these sites are so full of information to check out for you I will only visit one more today so that you do not spend the entire day lost in information.

SERENDIPITY

A friend told me she never knows what I’m going to write about, so it’s always a surprise. That makes at least two of us. Until my little lightbulb goes off, I don’t know what I’m going to say either. I have a lot of varied interests: history, photography, philosophy, religion, politics, ecology, technology. I’m a bit of a geek and I do enjoy my toys. Serendipity is appropriate, I guess. Grab bag would work too.

I try to be on the right side of issues. I do my best to align with the righteous on the side of justice, kindness, and giving everyone the benefit of a doubt. I don’t always live up to my own best self, but I try. You are welcome here and I ask only that you don’t insult anyone, not me or anyone who comments here. I reserve the right to delete or edit your comments. Sometimes I delete comments because they’re too long. Extended interchanges are better done in private email. I prefer not to have essays in comments. You are welcome to email me directly at fivedawgz@gmail.com. I find it awkward when a comment exceeds the length of the original post.

Did I mention that I love dogs? And photography? Words? I am perhaps excessively fond of cleverness and clever people. Plays on words make me giggle. My favorite piece of music is Beethoven’s 6th Symphony. Which doesn’t mean I don’t love country music, folk music, some very hard rock … I’m nothing if not eclectic.

As far as participating on this site, civility counts. Please be nice. We can be civil, even if we are not of the same mind.

This is not a public forum. For good or ill, democracy does not prevail here. If you want a fight, you can’t have it  here. I don’t want this site to be a battleground, nor do I want long disputes. There’s more than enough of that on social media sites. Therefore, on my site, when I say the conversation is over when I’ve had enough.

I write about everything and nothing. Sometimes I’m current, sometimes I wander off into stuff that I find interesting and maybe you won’t. That’s the joy of writing without a boss looking over my shoulder. After a lifetime of writing for a living, I treasure the freedom to say whatever I want.

I offer you some memories, many thoughts, stories, and pictures. The photographs are mine unless obviously otherwise or credited to someone else. If it’s a picture of me, it’s a good bet I didn’t take it. I also reblog postings that I think you will find interesting … or that I find interesting or funny or in some other way special.

Welcome, whoever you are, wherever you are.

So double check what you about page says because you never know, I may be stopping at your site tomorrow…

This has been a fun road trip and I can’t wait to see what day 7 brings.
