I have started work on a couple of new projects, and shelved an old project that was getting in the way; I will share more on those subjects later. At this point in time I am reading three books at once. I am in the middle of William Zinsser’s book, “On Writing Well”, a very good book for all who care to share their ideas with others. I am finishing up a book I have had for a while. It is a bit dry but filled with important information to those who write. It is much like the good pig; you can’t eat it all at one time. The book I am referring to is called “The Craft of Research”, by Booth, Colomb, and Williams. I have discovered it is a good book to read just before bed time.
The third piece I am reading is “Fox’s Book of Martyrs” By John Fox. I highly recommend this book to all, Christian or not. It will open your eyes to what the faithful before us have suffered for placing their faith in Christ Jesus during periods of persecution of those who swam against the flow of the social norm (does that sound familiar to anyone, except for the pain of death). Conversely, I found out the hard way this is NOT a good book to read at bed time, unless you want dreams of having boiling water poured on your head and then being burnt at the stake. All the same, it is a must read for those of us who have been saved for years, and complacency has set in. I pulled out the soap box and started to climb on board, but I will save my breath for another time.
So, you are up to date with my life, what is happening in yours? My daughter Keri has started a new project called “Unscripted Craftiness” keri77.blogspot.com. Stop by and see what is new.
