Maybe your weekend needs a random art/Veith sale. Wonder what that means? Dr. Gene Edward Veith has frankly probably written more books than you realize. He really is a culture guy, as well as vocation expert. So, he’s been commissioned to write various stuff, including the beautiful book, Painters of Faith: The Spiritual Landscape in Nineteenth-Century America.

It’s a real blow to me that I lost a slip of paper. I’d charted out my blog week and wrote three themes for poetry. And, isn’t it easy to just sink into a loss sometimes? It’s a piece of paper. It’s probably sitting at church in the Bible study room where I wrote it. But it’s given me the blahs. What do you do when your creativity runs low?
I lost my list outlining my blog for the week. I forgot entry day for the county fair. I got lost TWICE on a single trip yesterday!!! And, I totally cannot get on Facebook on 9/11 anniversaries. But today, today, is a new day.
You know how I am about resources. I want them sound, ample, and free! 🙂 So my next resource project is going to be looking for human care topics, especially those that need to tread careful lines between honesty, Scriptural teaching, and avoiding abject despair. You know the ones. Often about sexuality but increasingly covering so many human care topics!
I’ve had two totally great ideas this weekend. I just hope I remember them!!! Because, while I did do a bunch of outdoorsy work on our first beautiful day in forever, I did NOT get the writing done I thought I would! But, please, (don’t steal this!) tell me: what do you think about poetry fighting heresies?
Today I read a short story/ deleted scene, which I loved, by Vanessa Rasanen as she gears up to release the first novel in her Hearts on Guard series. Woo hoo! I’ll try to type up a review of that over the weekend for next week. Meanwhile I picked up a book to pre-read for my kiddos and realized, “I’ve absolutely read this before! And forgotten everything except a single scene at the very end!”
Let me tell you about the latest book I love: Aslan’s World: Biblical Images and Themes in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, a Bible study by Dr. Angus Menuge.
Still reflecting from yesterday, perhaps something is good if it is a gift from God used wisely. I tend to think that sin is a twisting of something good: man is not in essence sin, even though sin has twisted up his every aspect. Are you with me? So, those who are gifted as writers, whether they believe or not, do something good when they write and write well. God’s gift is producing fruit much as a physical tree.
Hello. I must be inconsistent. The other day I vented about reading hopeless books and largely blamed it on lack of belief. I want to be fair now: I read another dark secular book and LOVED it! What is it that makes a book so good?
I may or may not make up genre names, but this one is from Amazon (!): 45-Minute Religious & Spirituality Short Reads! I just found out that Jonathan Fisk and Bryan Wolfmueller have stuff in it, including their latest, Understanding the End Times: Theif in the Night Vol. 1, Part 2.
