Captain’s Log, Stardate 02.07.2006

Runningfawn: My online friend’s husband died unexpectedly yesterday. I want to open in prayer: Father God, I lift up Runningfawn to You. Please comfort her as only You can. I can’t imagine what her pain must be like. Lord, cover her with Your grace and power. Make her acutely aware that she is not alone. Hold Your child close, Father. Amen.

Book giveaway:
My Thursday book giveaway (HIDDEN MOTIVES) is here.
My Monday book giveaway (SAVANNAH FROM SAVANNAH) is here.
You can still enter both of them. Just post a comment on those blog posts.
On Thursday, I'll draw the winner for HIDDEN MOTIVES and post the title for another book I'm giving away. Stay tuned.

Bible in 90 Days: Day 30. I’m in Nehemiah now. What struck me today was when the people were listening to the Law of Moses being read and weeping, but he told them, “Don’t be dejected or sad, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” And he told them to celebrate with a rich feast because it was a sacred day. I forget often that God is a God of joy.

Writing: Yesterday I did a lot of work for my blog and book giveaways. Today I have to get some of the outline done.

Diet: I didn’t do terrific yesterday (1800) but I did go to PT. I’m okay today so far (600 soup lunch). We have Bible study tonight, which includes dinner (duty shifts every meeting). Hopefully I will have some self-control.


  1. I'm agreeing with you in prayer for your friend. May God comfort her and provide for her and her family in every way.

  2. Awww, poor Runningfawn. I will be praying for her.

    So is PT getting any easier for you? Hang in there!

    Praying for you too.


  3. My heart and prayers go out to Runningfawn. I just can't imagine.

    SELF control???? We're supposed to have THAT too??? Oh, man....lol

  4. God is a God of joy! Many look at the laws of Moses and cry "I'll never be good enough to belong to God!" Praise Him for His son Jesus, through whom we are not required to be "good enough" but to simply "believe".
    I am about to begin the Bible in 90 days and am really looking forward to it!

  5. What is self control? Umm...not in my vocabulary!

  6. Hi VAIL, Amen! Thanks for commenting!
