Injury

Fiction Writing Practice 2014/01/27The bombs are exploding around him. Joe can hear the bullets slam into the roof of the structure, another plane raid. He should be brave, strong, he should be out in the fray attacking back, like all his fellow soldiers. He doesn't understand this. He is paralyzed, he can't move. It's not like him to be this afraid. The rain is leaking through the holes in the roof and soaking him from head to toe. He closes his eyes and takes a deep breath...

When Joe opens his eyes the building is gone. He's laying in his bed, back home in Joshua Tree, CA. There is no raid. It's just a dream... or is it a memory... He's not sure anymore. It's the same one he's had every night for two years now. The rain was just night sweats. The feeling of not being able to move is because he cannot, in fact, move. Gunshot wound to the spine paralyzed him from the waste down. This dream was more vivid than his usual dreams.

As he comes to he realizes …

How to use Blogger to set up your own domain name for less than $10 a year!

A step by step guide to setting up a hosted top level domain name on Blogger. 
Wanting my own domain:
I've always wanted my own domain name. I kept thinking it would be too expensive to host a full website on my starting budget. So I settled for using Wordpress and Blogger subdomains. And that wasn't bad. But it wasn't great either.

Have you ever wanted your website, non profit website, business website, or blog to have a more professional web address or domain name? But you just don't want to pay the big bucks for a "real website". At least not yet.

Maybe when you become more successful, but you are still trying to keep the rent/mortgage paid. Therefore you must keep costs down. So you came to Blogger because you tried Wordpress.com and you got tired of them stopping you from entering your own html and affiliate links. In the end, whether you chose Wordpress or Blogger  or both, you settled for a subdomain.
So instead of getting that cool "MyAwesomenessOfASi…

An orange sits on a table. The shine of it's shell picking up the light of the morning sun through the window. Next to it, coffee and a donut. Earl left this morning without taking any of them, because he was late... again.

The Plight of the Black Pen

2014/01/24 Writing Practice
It's laying on the desk, next to several other pens. The only difference is it's color. Black and Silver pick up more of the light from the room than the other pens do. Maybe this is why he is more aware of his plight then they are. They lay there, simple, content to do nothing. Some are prettier, but less functional than he is. But they all lay, unchosen, for now. Is Black the only pen that chooses to ponder his fate, his plight, his meaning in this life?

Each pen is different, but this pen feels more different. He lays there. Incapable of moving until The Author chooses him for his craft. He was not chosen today. He will remain until he is either chosen, or discarded. The pen has no choice but to wait, and find out his fate. To see if The Author will use him today.
 Allas, The Author gets up to leave, off to work for the day. The pen was not chosen this day... but there is hope, tomorrow may be different. The pen will keep being who the pen is. Becau…

2 Corinthians 10:3–5For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.2 CORINTHIANS 10:3–5- See more at: http://gatewaydevotions.com/it-is-written/day-20#sthash.Q7Ifrj4u.dpuf

HEARIn the devotional today The author tells this story:
...I was at the church teaching a Bible class and one of those wild, Texas storms came blowing in from the west. My wife was at home with our children and the storm sirens began to go off, signaling there was a tornado nearby. She turned on The Weather Channel and the radar map showed the tornados were in our neighborhood. So she grabbed the kids and went into the safest room in the house. They were huddled in there for about 15 minutes and my son, Seth, was tired of cowering under the t…

I am a WRITER!

WRITERI am a writer:Yesterday was incredible! I received revelation and clarity for 2014. I AM A WRITER! Jeff Goins talks about making that declaration being the most revolutionary part of his career. Everything changed when he decided that. It's amazing what clarity will do for you.

I was being torn between what I was becoming passionate about and what I thought I was supposed to be doing. For years everyone has told me that I should be a musician and in audio mixing. I pursued that career this year. I even took an audio course. I know that is still part of my calling. Music and Audio is in there somewhere. But it's not my focus for 2014. I am a writer. I'm going to explore that solely this year.

The moment of realization hit me when my wife, who has always seen more in me than I see in myself turned to me pointed out that even during my audio class I didn't talk about it. I didn't read the books and find new books and get "into it". It was mostly focused …

Armor of God

COME:
http://gatewaydevotions.com/it-is-written/day-17Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.EPHESIANS 6:11–12- See more at: http://gatewaydevotions.com/it-is-written/day-17#sthash.UVwCoELa.dpuf
HEAR:I need to spend more time in the word. And put that before the other things. Even in my new dovotional schedule it seem to be the one thing that get's pressed out for time.


DO:Put the WORD first, then prayer, then journal, then the quite time. Maybe I could even incorporate my reading for the day as a section of my journal and save posts on this site for longer studies... something to ponder.







The Tale Overdraft Prevention Pt 1

Bad DayThe sizzle of steaming milk hits his ears as Joe releases the cold aluminum handle of the glass door. He heads in for his morning Venti Javachip Frap 3 extra shots. It would cost $4 of his last $10, but it was worth it.

The subtle murmur of 20 conversations bounce around him accented by a soft soprano and warm saxophone wafting down from above. He takes a deep breath as he is assaulted by syrup flavors and brewed coffees, a warm welcome before a long cold day.

His next client should be here in just over an hour, just enough time to prepare and get the jitters out. I really need this one.  As he makes his way through the line, images of stacks of unopened mail rise, as reminders of debts and overdue bills threatening to steal his one moment of morning peace... he brushes those thoughts aside as he takes a deep inhale of the coffee and pastries around him. It's his turn. He hands his card to the cashier and scans the cafe'.

People are sitting around talking with one another.…

The Tale Overdraft Prevention Pt 2

The Tale Overdraft Prevention Pt 2...
"Well let's see. We stopped fees for purchases, which was 75-80% of your battle. Now let's deal with those last pesky payments. Anytime you use your account number or card number to pay a bill you run risks. The company takes days to clear the payment. The company takes a payment they weren't supposed to, take a payment after you told them to stop, they take the wrong amount, on the wrong date, and basically just mess up your account. So we need to completely stop giving your card or account number to other companies. Even checks can be turned into electronic items and mis-processed or you simply forget to write it down. The more you control things, the less they control things, the better. We need to pay bills without using checks, account numbers or debit card numbers."

"How am I supposed to do that?"

"Now you have options. You pay in person with cash. You take out cash and buy money orders and mail them..."…

It Is Written - 21 Day Gateway Church Devotional Challenge Day 9
I've decided that if you miss days you just miss them. Keep your mind in the now and not the past. If you want to go back and re-read missed devotional days that's ok. But do NOT allow this feeling of being "behind" and needing to "catch up". You don't catch up in life. You either walk closer to or further from the plan of God. There is no catch up. That's an illusion. Just start where you are and walk.


COME:Job 32:88 But it is the spirit in a man, the breath of the Almighty, that gives him understanding.

Job 12:13
13 "To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are his.

Psalm 119:34
34 Give me understanding, and I will keep your law and obey it with all my heart.

Luke 24:45

I'm way behind, but I'm doing these in order because they are building on one another. See the link above to view these devotionals yourself. 
COME:
Psalm 105:41
41 He opened the rock, and water gushed out; like a river it flowed in the desert.

Psalm 1:1-3
1 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. 3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

Joshua 1:8
8 Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

Ok, so it's Jan 7th and I'm on day two? Yes I'm behind. I'll be catching up tomorrow probably.  Come:Matthew 4:4 (New International Version)
4 Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.' "

Joshua 1:8 (New International Version)
8 Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.


Job 23:12 (New International Version)
12 I have not departed from the commands of his lips; I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread.


Isaiah 55:2 (New International Version)
2 Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.
Hear:Daily time is paramount to succ…
