Post Hole Faith?

Normally

© Mattographyhttp://www.stockfreeimages.com
Normally, I'd write a post today. Because I committed to writing one every Monday. However, today it will be a really short one. Today I had to do "Man's Work". The fence fell down. And being responsible home owners we had to fix. Thank our precious Lord it was only one post that had issues. Some of the concrete opened up and allowed dirt in next to the wood. It rotted out the wood. The only thing holding that post in was the fence it was nailed to. It wasn't even pretending to be hooked to the ground anymore.

The other section of post, however, that was a different problem altogether. It was rooted and grounded! There was cement going down another 2-3 feet. In order to pull out the old post I had to break up all the concrete piece by piece. My lovely wife had great ideas to make the job go smoother and focus the work. In the end, after several house of digging and prying it all came out. The new pole went in the established hole. I made the new hole so big I ended up using TWO 80 lbs bags of Quickcrete to fill in around that pole. It's never moving again! LOL

It's now 10:57 PM CT on Monday. The kids went to bed late, the dogs have to go out on leashes because the post is in but it has to dry and set before we can load pressure onto it by putting the fencing back on. The whole project took longer than I thought, and yet it went easier than I thought too, in a sense. Aspects were harder, and easier. It's hard to explain really. In the end that part is done. I'm going to work tomorrow. I'm coming home to complete this project. While that was setting up we've done other things to improve our landscaping too. One project led to another. Who knows, if the fence hadn't fallen down maybe we'd never have gotten to all that other work?

Conclusions?

  • Some jobs look harder than they are...
  • Projects have a way of expanding on themselves, and that can be a great thing, so take one step and then another...
  • It looks hard, it is hard, but it's not THAT bad, just take it moment by moment, stop to breath every once in a while, and then go back at it...
  • Maybe I CAN be an outdoors person after all... 
  • God created a GREAT planet, I should enjoy it more...
  • It's interesting how dirt goes to try and grow whatever it can. It rots out material to make it into soil and uses that soil to grow plants and things we need. 
    • Parts of the wood were nearly turned to dirt themselves. 
    • It's interesting how that works. Our spirit is that way. It tries to dissolve  absorb, and grow whatever we put into it. What are you putting into your spirit today?

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Writing Prompt | Room and Bored

At the Heart Writers group meeting tonight, led by Lauren Stinton, we did a short writing prompt.

You have seven minutes to write (fiction or nonfiction) and it must include these three items/themes:

Jesus is Lord of allPrincessCat
Here is my result, with a bit of post-meeting editing and addition. Keep in mind, I wrote it in OneNote on my phone...

*** Room and Bored The light amplified through the double glass window pane, despite the clawed dusty drapes, warming Princess' furry belly. She was Queen of this castle and she held the honor with dignity.

Her human was a good servant. He brought her food at the appointed time. He changed her box. He performed his part admirably.

Then her life shattered.

Her human walked in the front door and laid a box on the table. "Princess, I have a surprise for you, " He said.

She rolled off the couch back and sauntered over. The pawed the box. It moved. She jumped back, "Moew," she cried.

A soft rumble came from the box.

Her hu…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

TEMAN


te'-man (teman, "on the right," i.e. "south"; Thaiman): The name of a district and town in the land of Edom, named after Teman the grandson of Esau, the son of his firstborn, Eliphaz (Genesis 36:11 1 Chronicles 1:36). A duke Teman is named among the chiefs or clans of Edom (Genesis 36:42 1 Chronicles 1:53). He does not however appear first, in the place of the firstborn. Husham of the land of the Temanites was one of the ancient kings of Edom (Genesis 36:34 1 Chronicles 1:45). From Obad 1:9 we gather that Teman was in the land of Esau (Edom). In Amos 1:12 it is named along with Bozrah, the capital of Edom. In Ezekiel 25:13 desolation is denounced upon Edom: "From Teman even unto Dedan shall they fall by the sword." Dedan being in the South, Teman must be sought in the North Eusebius, Onomasticon knows a district in the Gebalene region called Theman, and also a town with the same name, occupied by a Roman garrison, 1…
