Sunday Prayer

Captain’s Log, Stardate 01.15.2006

Leave any prayer requests in the comments and I’ll be praying this week. You don’t have to be Christian to leave a prayer request. If you’d rather not advertise to everyone on the blogosphere, just leave an unspoken prayer request or email me.

I’m getting paranoid I’m forgetting somebody. If you don’t see yourself and you want to, email me or leave a comment. I never promised I had a better memory than a goldfish. “Oh! I have a castle!”

Not to be mean or anything, but if you don't email me or comment to update your prayer request, I'm only going to pray 3 Sundays. I've got a couple fly-by prayer requests and a growing list.

Father, thank you for your grace on us, and your sovereign will. We trust you in all things.

I lift up Wintervision retreat to you. Lay your hand over all the kids, the cabin leaders, the staff. Rain down your power and your glory and your grace. Change lives and reveal yourself powerfully to everyone there.

Please give wisdom and skill to Squirl's doctors so that they can treat her hip. I pray for healing for her so she doesn't have to live in pain.

Give Pammer your affirmation for her writing, Lord. Help her to seek your will alone, and lead and guide her in her writing. Help her to resist the spiritual warfare making her feel insecure. Help her ground herself in you.

I pray Julie's lumps are benign, and that you will not only heal her completely, but that you will heal her wounded spirit, too.

Give Heather strength to do what she needs to do for you. I pray you blessed her at the retreat this weekend and gave her direction for her writing.

Give Dineen guidance in her writing for 2006. Lead her and encourage her.

Be with Robin as she waits for replies to proposals. Give her the right agent soon. Continue to protect Emily.

Lord, please guide and direct Ronie in her writing. She only desires your will Lord—please reveal it to her. Help her to know what you want her to write and where to submit, so that she can be used for your glory alone.

Lead and guide Ron in his writing. Help him to write for you.

Be with Gina as she waits, and give her the assurance that you will provide her with the agent you want for her.

Encourage Crystal in her writing and give her comfort and direction.

Thank you that Mir had a great ACT ONE workshop. Lord, I pray for healing for Mir--her carpal tunnel and everything else. Please ease her pain and touch her body with your power. Give wisdom to her doctors. Please continue to motivate her and give her strength for her diet and exercise (me too, Lord). Also give her discipline and inspiration on her writing this next week. And lastly, I pray for her family's salvation.

Help Paula continue to keep her eyes on you as she juggles her writing and family. Give her affirmation in her priorities.

Please give Megan guidance and direction about this new part-time job she’s been offered. Help her to know your will for her so that she can follow you alone.

Please give Lori and her doctors wisdom about her ACL after they look at her MRI.

Help Donna continue to dedicate book #4 to you.

Please continue to help Gail heal quickly from her surgery. I pray for healing for Brenda and that you will ease her discomfort from the chemotherapy.

Help Heather G. to both find good friends at school and find a closer walk with you.

Give Malia and her doctors wisdom as they look at her knee. Please also give her guidance about her schoolwork, patience with her teachers, and direction as she figures out what you want her to do.

Be with Yim in her writing, her job, and her career direction.

Lord, please heal Amber from her injuries. Give wisdom to the doctors and strength to her body.

Be with Glynna as she waits on her query to JKG. Assure her of your love for her and your plans for her writing. Give her guidance and encouragement.

Be with Tina F. and help her to prioritize her writing/editing, her family, and her work. Give her your peace and guidance.

Provide a job or income to Becky, so that she can continue to care for her children and attend school. Give her wisdom and guidance. Help her to look to you and to trust in whatever direction you take her.

Be with Angie P. and continue to help her and guide her. Heal any hurts, lift her spirits. I also pray for healing for Pattie. Give her your strength and power.

Please heal Margaret's husband. I pray he responds well to the new medication.

Please provide Audra with a good accountability partner, and help her through these last weeks of her pregnancy.

Lord, please be with Margo as she starts up a new Bible study. Please give her guidance and descend your spirit upon everyone in the group. Grow them into women who will know you, love you, and serve you.

Lord, I lift up Kelly to you and ask for your hand over her right now.

Thank you for helping LaShaunda reach her goal on her writing retreat!

Father, thank you so much for fixing Lynette's Alphasmart! Please help her as she races toward her deadline.

Please be with Tiff as she starts her new job. Thank you for providing for her!

Lord, I lift up all my friends who are married to non-believers. Give them love and perseverance and grace. Encourage and bless them as only you can.

Lord, I pray my ACL isn't torn. If it is, give me peace about what has happened and wisdom about what to do next.

Cover your persecuted church with your wings, and give them strength to continue to persevere. Shower them with your power and might.

All your people worship you. Amen.

Bible in 90 Days: day 7. I'm in the dreaded Leviticus. It's actually not bad because I'm reading it so fast and flying through. If I were reading fewer chapters a day, I think it would be harder to keep moving through it. My Life Application notes say to think of Leviticus as God's instructions in worship, which is an interesting attitude to take as I read it.

Writing: This is my day of rest from my manuscript, but I'm hoping to get another Swain article done today. I'll also be interviewing TRACEY BATEMAN on my blog in a week or so--I'll have to figure out some great questions for her.

Diet: Didn't do great yesterday, but I was still in comfort food mode. I had four cookies for dessert. :)

Today, I had a Greek steak sandwich--really great. Tonight...maybe some vegetable soup.

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

Year of the Dog serial novel, chapter 19

I’m posting a Humorous Christian Romantic Suspense serial novel here on my blog! Year of the Dog is a (second) prequel to my Warubozu Spa Chronicles series. Year of the Dog serial novel by Camy Tang Mari Mutou, a professional dog trainer, is having a bad year. While renovating her new dog kenneling and training facility, she needs to move in with her disapproving family, who have always made her feel inadequate—according to them, a job requiring her to be covered in dog hair and slobber is an embarrassment to the family. She convinces her ex-boyfriend to take her dog for a few months … but discovers that his brother is the irate security expert whose car she accidentally rear-ended a few weeks earlier. Ashwin Keitou has enough problems. His aunt has just shown up on his doorstep, expecting to move in with him, and he can’t say no because he owes her everything—after his mother walked out on them, Auntie Nell took in Ashwin and his brother and raised them in a loving Chri

Year of the Dog serial novel

About Year of the Dog : A month or two ago, I remembered an old manuscript I had completed but which hadn’t sold. It was a contemporary romance meant for Zondervan, titled Year of the Dog . The book had gone into the pipeline and I even got another title ( Bad Dog ) and a cover for it, but eventually my editor at the time decided she didn’t want to publish it, for various reasons. She instead requested a romantic suspense, and so I cannibalized some of the characters from Year of the Dog and thrust them into the next book I wrote, which was Protection for Hire . Honestly, I didn’t take a lot from Year of the Dog to put in Protection for Hire , aside from character names and a few relationship ties. I was originally thinking I’d post Year of the Dog as-is on my blog as a free read, but then it occurred to me that I could revamp it into a romantic suspense and change the setting to Hawaii. It would work out perfectly as (yet another) prequel to the Warubozu series and introduc

Grace Livingston Hill romances free to read online

I wanted to update my old post on Grace Livingston Hill romances because now there are tons more options for you to be able to read her books for free online! I’m a huge Grace Livingston Hill fan. Granted, not all her books resonate with me, but there are a few that I absolutely love, like The Enchanted Barn and Crimson Roses . And the best part is that she wrote over 100 books and I haven’t yet read them all! When I have time, I like to dive into a new GLH novel. I like the fact that most of them are romances, and I especially appreciate that they all have strong Christian themes. Occasionally the Christian content is a little heavy-handed for my taste, but it’s so interesting to see what the Christian faith was like in the early part of the 20th century. These books are often Cinderella-type stories or A Little Princess (Frances Hodgson Burnett) type stories, which I love. And the best part is that they’re all set in the early 1900s, so the time period is absolutely fasci


Source: via Camy on Pinterest In-N-Out, one of my fav burger joints, makes an appearance in the first chapter of A Dangerous Stage . It's a chain on the West Coast and Hawaii, I'm not sure how far east they have restaurants. They don't freeze any of their food, it's all fresh, including the buns and the french fries. When you order, you can see them use this french fry hand-crank machine to make their fries, it's pretty cool. The specific restaurant in A Dangerous Stage doesn't exist at that location, but there's a couple of them near me and I go there way too often than is good for me, but it's oh-so-yummy!

Daniel 9:9

Dear Lord, Thank you for being so merciful and forgiving to us no matter what we’ve done or where we’ve been. Thank you for loving us so much, even when we find it hard to love ourselves. Even if we have rejected you, you still reach out to us and want us to come to you for love and comfort and forgiveness. Thank you for your magnificent grace. Amen 主よ、 私たちが何をしようと、どこにいようと、私たちを憐れみ、赦してくださりありがとうございます。私たちが自分自身を愛することが難しいときでさえ、私たちをこんなにも愛してくださってありがとうございます。たとえ私たちがあなたを拒んだとしても、あなたは私たちに手を差し伸べ、愛と慰めと赦しを求めてあなたのもとに来ることを望んでくださいます。あなたの素晴らしい恵みに感謝します。 アーメン

Michael’s Scarf knitting pattern

Michael’s Gray and Brown Scarf I had just written a scene in Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 5: Prisoner where my character Michael gives the heroine a very significant scarf. When looking for a stitch pattern, I found the one used in “#31 Comfort either for a Lady or Gentleman” in The Lady's Assistant , volume 2 , published in 1842 by Mrs. Jane Gaugain, pages 125-126 (click on the link to view and/or download the free PDF of the digitally scanned book). When I did test swatches, it turned out to be a pretty eyelet pattern that looks like branches or vines winding upward. I tried the pattern as a parallelogram scarf and discovered that the pattern has a changeable orientation, looking vertical or diagonal depending on how you looked at it. So I decided to use this pattern, knitted as a parallelogram, as Michael’s scarf. I decided to use a smaller needle and add a slip stitch in the pattern to make the eyelets a bit more close and less lacy. When paired with a brown an

Tabi socks, part deux

Captain's Log, Stardate 07.25.2008 (If you're on Ravelry, friend me! I'm camytang.) I made tabi socks again! (At the bottom of the pattern is the calculation for the toe split if you're not using the same weight yarn that I did for this pattern (fingering). I also give an example from when I used worsted weight yarn with this pattern.) I used Opal yarn, Petticoat colorway. It’s a finer yarn than my last pair of tabi socks, so I altered the pattern a bit. Okay, so here’s my first foray into giving a knitting pattern. Camy’s top-down Tabi Socks I’m assuming you already know the basics of knitting socks. If you’re a beginner, here are some great tutorials: Socks 101 How to Knit Socks The Sock Knitter’s Companion A video of turning the heel Sock Knitting Tips Yarn: I have used both fingering weight and worsted weight yarn with this pattern. You just change the number of cast on stitches according to your gauge and the circumference of your ankle. Th
