  1. Everything that we see, God’s fingerprint is there. It seems inconspicuous in such a big world! Take a moment, please, to stop and stare. Look at the sunset in the night Exploding with rose, orange, and violet. If you look closely, it resembles a painting With the paints accenting the twilight. Notice the strokes of the paintbrush As it glides it to and fro. Who handled this brush? It was God, of course! He overlapped each crevice high and low. Now take a look at the closest tree- Run your fingers down the bar

  3. We discussed backups for websites quite sometime ago. So I thought we ought to do it again. Especially since @suspensewriter has encountered the daunting task of redoing all his site as they were infected. And so were his backups. Carolina asked if backing up to the cloud was safe. I believe it is. And I believe some servers use the cloud. But I could be wrong. So I'm hoping Rebecca will jump in on this conversation. Now, SW's server handles his backups. (SW, jump in if I'm wrong.) When you have a dedicated server for your own domain, they handle backups and a host of o

  4. I've stood here watching For so many long years now; Watching as the world has changed, Watching to keep myself changeless for you. I've stood here watching, Wondering when the day might come That I could take your hand And dance with you to life's gentle love song. The thought leaves me breathless. I've stood here watching, Guarding the way to you heart, Watching as each day passes on, Watching so you'll know you're treasured. I've stood here watching, Wondering as the days have passed At the legacy of love that

  5. The sun sets low on a pink horizon, Its hues cascading o'er drowsy hills and plains. The earth swallows this glorious fire, Welcoming darkness as the daylight wains. Cooling under evening's purple cover, Slumber eases the day's many pains. Our bright star sinks low each twilight, Burning flames now shadows o'er the fading earth. Evening's hush brings rejuvenation, Calming the earth in silent dearth. Welcomed sleep covers the waiting ground, Rest arriving in the day's rebirth.

  11. Ky, So well written and your passions and realizations of what this world with it's overseeing God means to you. The blessing you have given us in this one poem will help sustain among us both those that need help in their 'unbelief' and the strong. I too love writing about these grand and powerful subjects because they exalt the I in me. Beauty= that which exalts. Well done. Very well done.

  12. Man, thanks everyone for your prayers. I've been busy all day restoring them and I'm not even a tenth of the way done! By the way, Rebecca, I had backups, but those were infected, too. Thanks for the offer of help, though!

  14. This is for employees/employers, but it's something to consider when we're writing dialogue for our characters. https://getpocket.com/explore/item/six-verbs-that-make-you-sound-weak-no-matter-your-job-title?utm_source=pocket-newtab

  15. I've held off commenting because...well, I wanted to see what others thought. I rather disagree with some of that article. And I agree with Accord. In the business world, what Accord has said is true. I can't see that the suggested alternatives would work. Now, that said, writing dialogue would be a different matter.

  16. Interesting, but ultimately subjective. I think it depends on the situation and how any of these words are used. (And yes, I intentionally used think, because it's my opinion.) For instance, under the word need, the proposed weak use is “I need this report as soon as possible.” I worked in the business world for over 30 years, and this was a clear, common way to express a request. I would never consider it weak. The only thing I'd change is to state a more defined time that the report is needed. "As soon as possible" should be more clear, like "by the end of the day."

  18. Great question, @RockyMtn Gal. I'd recommend the Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn series by Tad Williams. One warning, though: it's not Christian. But I really enjoyed it and am about to re-read it. I've only read the first of Brandon Sandersons' Mistborn series. It was good, and worth a read. Patrick Rothfuss' The Name of the Wind. Beautiful. Engaging story. A magic system that maintains the mystery but is also grounded in logic. Only downside: it's the first in a trilogy and he still hasn't published the last book. Bummer. Other than that (and ignorin

  19. The Neverending Story by Michael Ende is a fantastic fantasy. It is a Christian refutation of Buddhism, and is brilliantly done overall. Highly recommend. Phantastes by George MacDonald is a classic every fantasy author should read. So far, I have never found a contemporary book that I've really liked. (Maybe I should check out the Mistborn series!) Perhaps if you like thrillers or dark fantasy (think Hunger Games), Map of Shadows by J.F. Penn could be interesting. It is definitely a page turner, but too dark and suspenseful for my taste. I also am suspicious of it nea

  20. It depends on your purpose. If you want to sell books, you should look at books that sold very well. One that I would suggest looking at that most folks don't think of is Green Ember. It is about bunnies. With swords and magic. Not kidding. These books will, by and large, be what authors often think of as "poorly written" because we focus so much on the little picture of line edits and prose style. But, these books that succeed all have engaging, page-turning stories that keep readers guessing about what will happen to characters that fulfill well known tropes and roles with the g

  21. I've tried so many modern Fantasy books in my time, I read maybe a few chapters and put them down. It's part of the reason why I started writing my own. I've tried the first book in the Mistborn series. The writing is OK. But I quickly got bored with the story. I'm a big believer that when it comes to magic, some things are best left unsaid, and left to the arcane. I've heard reviews of The Savior's Champion. It sounds to me like chick-lit with gore and magic added. That's not my cup of tea. The best modern Fantasy book that I've read, and finished, w

  23. I got attacked by vicious Malware, and my service provider--whom I've been with for 10 years--had to take down on my websites. So now I've got to rebuild them all. So, please pray for me while I do this!
