"Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life." Proverbs 13:12

defer: postpone
desire: wish or long for; want

Our world as we know it is looking bleaker every day. In fact I won't lie I thought today my heart might faint within me. As I type this out I'm still unsteady, but my heart of renewed some after reading something in the book "Aristotle Owl and the Beckoning Bottoms." I told you that the man who wrote the book is a preacher, well he quoted a verse from Proverbs (the verse above) and as I said it renewed me.

If you listen to the news then you might feel like your hope is being postponed, but don't lose hope because our desire which is Jesus is coming. And the verse states that when desire cometh, it is a tree of life. We still have life because of Jesus and no one can take that away if we don't let them.

I feel the need to tell everyone out there if you are reading this and you are not a Christian and you feel the need to be saved then pray. Well how do I do that you may ask? Admit that you have sinned and believe in Jesus. You don't have to name every sin in your life just ask to be forgiven of them. Then find yourself a Bible and I would suggest you start reading the gospel of John. Also you should find a good church to go to, also the Bible says this...

"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light." 1 Peter 2:9

When I think of peculiar I think of the word weird. We are a weird people (I'm laughing because I know I'm strange and weird). We are different. Some Christians might not like me saying this but the Christians who have morals are consider weird people to the world and other Christians who are different. So when you get saved try not to cuss people out or party it up. Love every one and be kind. Try to live the best you can live while we still have time to live here in this world.

LOL!!! (One of my favorite commercials.)

Well this may sound a little strange, but I wanted to thank God for not letting me catch myself on fire or my house on fire the other night. I was washing dishes and I was drying a cookie sheet, well sometimes cookie sheets still feel damp after you have dried all the water off of it. So I lay them on the burners of the stove and turn a really low fire on to dry them faster. Well I laid down the pan and turned the knob and fire shot out from under the pan. I mean it touched me and everything, but I wasn't burned any where on my body. It happened so fast I don't know if I would even thought about stop, drop, and roll.

Other news happening in my life. I went to the eye doctor in Columbus, Ohio on Monday to have the glaucoma pressure in my eyes checked. The doctor was pleased with the numbers. Also that day I finished reading "The Shack" which I was so glad to finish because that book is really out there. I'm use to reading strange Christian fiction books because I read Ted Dekker books, but that guy was totally different. After I finished that book I started reading "Aristotle Owl and the Beckoning Bottoms" (fiction/fantasy) this book is wrote by a local man here in our area. He is a preacher and he is a school teacher and the book came about because he was teaching writing skills and he came up with the character. Then after he wrote one chapter his class wanted him to write another and he ended up writing a book. I will write a review after I read it all. Also I will say one thing about the book, I've read words I've never heard of before and I've had to look them up to know what the meaning is. So I guess I'm learning.
