Monday: 17June'13--what's with the future?
This can be a bit "nasty" in a weird and fun sort of way. Nasty may not be the best word in the world, due to it's connotations. But hey, in the pop use of words today, often the opposite is meant of what is said.
.......this weekend I finished reading a book (being real careful here to give nuthin' away! We're watchin' The Voice with all THAT great country western music happenin' right now as I type.) that this olde man was invited to read, pre-publication. Why me? Not sure. But the invitation was to read it, and offer some words of endorsement.
Honored by the one who asked. But, whoa, so many other people should be doing this (.....I know the author is far from hard up for those who would, should endorse this significant work).
My biggest problem with the book was that I lost sleep. Dang! lol Honestly. It was hard to put it down. Finally, at 10:47 last night I arrived at the last page (lost sleep the two nights before). Whew. What was really wild was that last night I even had a dream about the concluding scenes. Impacting.
What's the book? I'll let you know when it's finally out.
In the economy of endorsements, I will be more than way surprised if what I sent to the author today shows up. That is not a problem. Truly. Was a quiet delight to even be asked. What's far more important is for this book to be read, pondered, purposefully allowed to get others responding to its message.
Yesterday, while grocery shopping with my wife, I saw this card in a rack. Someone reading this is also longing to stretch and create and write, climb, draw, run, or sing, or ___________________ (fill in the blank). Few are destined to write a book like I read in the past 72 hours.
We are, that be thee, those you know, have yet to meet, me, we all have not yet arrived at what we are capable of. I know some extraordinarily talented people around the globe. I am not them. They are not me. Nor are you them, or they you.
The question for both thee and me, that we do need to ponder often is formed from what you read here. Don't let what our Triune God has designed you to be and do go to waste.......don't let any of it, known or unknown right now, go unfulfilled.
