Saturday, January 01, 2005



Oh Mary! I'm so sorry I wasn't there for you! What a glaring contrast to the night before when I WAS there for my daughter and her charge. It felt so good to be there for someone, and in contrast it feels awful NOT to be there when someone needs you. Greg and I didn't even make it until midnight. We turned off the TV at 11:15 and were both asleep by 11:30. In defense, I DID have one last thought to get online, just in case, before I drifted off.

One thought dominated my mind as I read your entry and that was that your nephew and his wife sure do need prayer! I am asking God to use you in their life and then be open to whatever He leads you to do or say... which might be nothing but prayer. I'm also asking Him for strength and insight for you to get through this with JOY and not with dread.


Don't feel bad- I had very low expectations of anyone being awake at that time, honestly. You wouldn't have seen my email if you'd gotten online before falling asleep - It was another hour before I sent it to you, or posted this blog entry.

Saturday was better than I expected it would be, and today I fly back to Georgia. I'll post an update once I'm back in the land of high-speed internet and away from 24K dialup.

My Commitment

  • Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior. Hab. 3:17-18

Authors I enjoy

  • Angela Elwell Hunt
    Everything Angie writes is well-written. Not always easy to read, but definitely *worth* reading.
  • Anne McCaffrey
    One of the reigning queens of Science Fiction.
  • C.S. Lewis
  • Celia Hayes
    Celia Hayes is not only a favorite author but a personal friend. If you like historical fiction, especially thoroughly researched, well-written historical fiction about Texas, you need to read her books.
  • Dick Francis
  • Earlene Fowler
    If Benni Harper were a real person, I'd want to be her friend.
  • Elizabeth Moon
    Sci-Fi/Fantasy. LOVE her Deed of Paksenarrion, and her entire Heris Serrano/Esmay Suiva series.
  • J.R.R. Tolkien
  • Kristen Britain
  • Louis L'Amour
    He wrote more than just westerns, people....
  • Madeleine L'Engle
    My all-time fave. Both her fiction and non-fiction are very readable, and always thought-provoking.
  • S.M. Stirling
    Time-travel/Alternate Histories.
  • Terri Blackstock
    Some of the best legal thrillers (for lack of a better term) I've read. Believable characters that it's easy to care about, as well.
  • Terry Pratchett
