Spring Celebration at Great America

Captain's Log, Stardate 05.09.2006

Blog book giveaway:
My Thursday book giveaway is SHADOW BONES by Colleen Rhoads (aka Colleen Coble).
My Monday book giveaway is PINK by Marilynn Griffith.
You can still enter both giveaways. Just post a comment on each of those blog posts. On Thursday, I'll draw the winner for SHADOW BONES and post the title for another book I'm giving away. Stay tuned.

Spring Celebration: Every year, a whole slew of Christian bands gather to perform all day at Paramount's Great America Theme Park here in the Bay Area.

No, I didn’t go. But the high school kids from my youth group did!

Eric videotaped their ride on the Invertigo Rollercoaster (the one that goes through a crazy ride in one direction , then repeats the same track in the other direction ).

I might be the only one who thinks these guys are insane and insanely funny at the same time, but hey! These are the teens from my church youth group. I love them on most days.

(For my 200th video posted, I thought I'd better do something special. So I recorded Tim and Brett on a roller-coaster...the only one where the cars are facing each other. I dunno how well it came out, but it was a pretty crazy ride!)

TMI:

I Samuel 8: I had kind of a weird suspicion today. When Israel's elders demanded that Samuel find them a king, they said they wanted to be like the nations around them. But they also said they wanted "a king to lead us."

That got me thinking. I'm not a Bible scholar, but I wondered if they wanted a man because they could talk to him, persuade him, change his mind, manipulate him, influence him. And that's a pretty selfish reason to want a man to lead the nation.

With God as their king, they certainly couldn't do that with Him. His word was It.

That seemed pretty underhanded to me. "We want someone we can corrupt." That's just plain depressing.

I guess that's why God wants us to submit fully to Him. His word is It.

Writing: Please keep praying for me, prayer warriors! I'm struggling with spiritual warfare as I write. I'm hoping to finish by May 15th, but I have a lot of words to go.

Diet: I don't even want to go there. Writing deadline = dump the diet.

  1. Father, you said we would have everything we need in Christ, so I pray today that you fill Camy with your Spirit mightily, with your might dynamically, so that she may overcome all the attacks, within and without, that are coming against her. In you, victory. I ask for grace and mercy and peace and strength on Camy and on us all who daily fight against all the forces that try to keep us from our narrow walk and our missions. I bless you, Lord. I praise you, Lord. I call upon you, Father, for aid and comfort.

    In the name of Christ. Amen.

    Can I get some sisters to agree with me?

  4. Can't post on Wednesday's blog. No verication letters visible.

    Bless Camy as she seeks to do your will by writing the books you have laid upon her heart. Prepare also the hearts of those who will eventually read these books. May they read them with open hearts and minds to truly understand the message that she wants to convey for your glory. Let Camy stand firm as the Evit One is attacking her. Make us firm in our beliefs as we all go through the same strife. Bless all of us who believe in your saving grace and help us show others that you are there for them. You know whom I mean in particular today. Heal their grieving hearts.

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
