Eye Opening Prayer


Man praying in the grassy field

Thought you might enjoy this prayer given in Kansas at the opening session of their Senate. It seems prayer still upsets some people…

 When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:

Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask Your forgiveness and to seek your direction and Guidance.

We know Your Word says,’ Woe to those who call evil good,’ but that is exactly what we have done.

We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.

We have exploited the poor and called it The lottery.

We have rewarded laziness and called it Welfare.

We have killed our unborn and called it Choice.

We have shot abortionists and called it Justifiable.

We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem..

Cute Overload


Dorothy brought the twins tonight.

It was sooooo cute. While one stayed by Mom for a moment the other one was racing around the hill.

I think Buckley is Daddy because one of the fawns would go over to him and give him a kiss. Dorothy continued to eat her corn and told Buckley, “You watch the kids.”

I absolutely love having these beautiful deer come visit. Especially when they bring the little ones.







The Juicy Stuff

Yesterday was an exciting day. Not just because of the small herd of deer that were in my back yard enjoying the corn I put out for them but being in church, and listening to a testimony from one of the congregates, that also mentioned, “Sue, our new visitor, has written some books.”

I was surprised to say the least. I’ve only visited three times and the Lord has confirmed to me that this is the church He wants me to worship at now. I miss the people from my last church but am glad I’m not having to drive the 30 miles to go there.

I had carried one book in to show the pastor yesterday and had a couple more in the car. By the end of the service I sold two books just like that. No effort on my part other than having one available in hand and someone mentioning I have published books. (besides me, that is)

Word of mouth is another great way to sell our books. My first book I took with me to my Mammogram appointment and sold the first  book I had ever written, just like that, to two people.

If we let people know we are writers and have written a book, they are naturally curious. Have a couple handy to be able to show them and you may have a sale. I mentioned writing with some new acquaintances at a lunch one day and sold four books right out of the backseat of my car.

Of course we advertise on social media but word of mouth sometimes goes much faster than someone hunting it up on a computer. Its much like gossip, the “juicy stuff” travels fast. 🙂


Come on back – More excitement to come.
