Spiritually Unequal Marriages

Captain’s Log, Stardate 05.23.2006

Blog book giveaway:
My Thursday book giveaway is ONCE UPON A CHOCOLATE KISS by Cheryl Wolverton.
My Monday book giveaway is A GIRL’S BEST FRIEND by Kristin Billerbeck.
You can still enter both giveaways. Just post a comment on each of those blog posts. On Thursday, I'll draw the winner for ONCE UPON A CHOCOLATE KISS and post the title for another book I'm giving away. Stay tuned.

Unequally yoked: I have a lot of Christian friends married to non-believers, or who used to be non-believers. I can’t even fathom the kinds of issues they have to deal with on a daily basis.

This new blog Spiritually Unequal Marriage is for encouragement and practical advice. It’s a totally awesome ministry. Even if you’re not in a spiritually unequal marriage, please go show your support and say a prayer.

TMI:

Writing:
Several friends insisted I need to reward myself for finishing my manuscript, so I went to Safeway and bought four pounds of bing cherries. These were not cheap, mind you. I love cherries. This is one of the best parts of living in California.

The cherries are in a Japanese bowl I got as part of a set for my wedding.


Diet: Not doing too badly considering I’ve been busy. No over-2000-calorie days, anyway, but I’m also not exercising, which is bad. I have to get back into the rhythm of that once my workload eases up.

  1. OOOOOOhhh....Cherries! I'm so envious.

    They're really expensive in Japan -- like $5 for 4 oz or something. >.<

  2. Sounds like a great way to celebrate. Nothing canned compares to fresh cherries. Now if they were dipped in chocolate . . . ;)

  3. Yum, those cherries look delicious. Guess why I don't buy cherries or strawberries and other fruit like that. Most of ours come from places like Florida or California. With a couple of 1000 miles to go on today's gas prices, imagine how expensive they are here.

    I also love that boowl. Reminds me of my almost-see-through china tea set. I love that color of blue with white and the yummy red cherries. Even a feast for the eyes.

    I couldn't image marrying a non-Christian. In some ways it would probably be almost more difficult to become a Christian while you're already married. The conflicts could be staggering. I'm having a hard time coping on my own so I can see why you're always praying for your friends who are in situations like that.

    I grew up in a Christian family and it's still amazing to me sometimes how other people live who don't know Jesus as Saviour. I didn't realize how sheltered I've actually been from a lot of life's realities. Even when I lived alone in Europe, that lifestyle stayed with me: no bar-hopping, going dancing or things like that. I've never minded going into restaurants on my own and except for a few incidents, I've rarely even come close to trouble. He's really been watching over me and that is such a freeing feeling--as long as you don't do anything that people might misinterpret.

Year of the Dog serial novel, chapter 5

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 Marisol 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, Aunt Nell took in Ashwin and his brother and raised them in a loving Christ

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
