Rejoice In Repentence Sermon

This is the first sermon archived in my church’s homepage, Blue Ridge Church of Christ. It is the introduction of How We Mature featuring James. Enjoy. Even as I am writing this, I am re-listening to the sermon. And I like it. I like reviewing what was taught before and refreshing my memory of what was taught in this or that sermon.


On a personal note, I am sorry for the lack of substance in my posts today. I am not feeling my best, and work is such that I can’t call in sick. So I’ll probably be even more tired and blah tomorrow. But hopefully, I will have something interesting for Brony Week at least! Maybe something else. And I found out that smiling even when you absolutely don’t feel like it, make you feel a little happier despite yourself.

So, have an AWESOME DAY!!


A Head’s Up

Well, I was going to watch My Little Pony The Movie today, and start Sunday with a review! Well, waking up with a migraine put that to bed, both literally and figuratively. So I would have to postpone the plan. But I will watch it by Wednesday at the very latest and will write a review no later than Thursday.

On a personal note, I am really glad right now that I said I would start tomorrow and not today. I will try to write something today to post tomorrow. But with this migraine…well, I’ll see what I can do.

An Awkward Post

Well, I had obviously not been following my schedule like I planned. I am sorry. I had a lot of things going wrong this summer, including a heat wave! Heat waves are evil. I found out that when temperatures go past a certain point, my brain goes into hibernation. This made me sad. Nothing creative came out of my brain in the last two month. But on the up side, I been reading on a fairly steady clip, so as soon as I settle down to the task, I should have plenty of reviews, and finished the first season to a theme I wanted to review for this month! YAY!!! So…kinda productive??

Anyway, I will most likely get back in gear this Thursday/Wednesday. Expect a post no later than then, and have an awesome day!

What to expect in july

Working schedule for my blog

Mondays will be movie reviews, and possibly a personal news blog. Might also do a quick show review.

Tuesdays will be sharing my personal writing in the form of excerpts and poems and flash fiction, as well as the sharing of fanfiction.

Wednesdays will be book reviews, and/or book news

Thursdays will be the one day of the week that won’t have a new blog post. But will possibly when I get them organized and ready for posting

Fridays will be youtube reviews and book reviews

Saturday will be essays, book reviews/news and a post of one of my ‘living like a…” Chapters

Sundays would be posting a review on sermons, and posting links to sermons, and books reviews. And overview of the last week, and an outlook of what could be expected in the week to come. Maybe poems shared.

An Apology and An Update

Sorry for not writing for a bit now. But I have been on a kind of high over two discoveries I made over the last couple of weeks. The first was the idea of something called a readathon. I know, welcome to the internet, right? But the idea of a readathon never once even came to me. At least not one that was not some summer reading program that the local library ran. Just imagine, people getting together online to read books and talk about them! It’s like the internet just gave me this brightly wrapped present with a chipper little Your Welcome song in the background. I was stoked.

Number two was that one was going to start the next week, of me learning about them in the first place, and it was a three-month long readathon, all about Harry Potter! Enter hyper-excited fangirl squeal! It started with Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, both the book and the screenplay, and goes on from there. It is called The Annual Harry Potter Readathon.
As you can guess, it is already underway, and we are now reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s stone. There are great challenges, and questions that make you think about what you, or rather, your character would be during the books. There are quizzes, and a photo contest, and book-based contests and it’s just a wonderful, well thought out event. I’m glad this is my first foray into readathons!

By the way, my character is a Ravenclaw named Scarlett Hughes. I might end up writing some fanfiction about her…you have been warned.

An Update and some art…

Just a quick heads up, to show you some of the goings on in my life. I am working on some challenges currently. One is a walking challenge, where I follow the steps of Bilbo Baggins and company from Bag’s End all the way to Lonely Mountain. When I walk the collective miles to another spot, then I reach a new section of the novel. While I’m keeping track of this, I will also be reading The Hobbit through all the places I walked to so far. Almost caught up! So far I have been to The Green Dragon, The Floating Log at Frogmorton, and soon will be camping at Woody End. ^_^ This makes walking an adventure!

I have been writing something now almost every day for at east a week. A good streak for me! Lord wills, I will be able to keep this streak alive with few if any breaks. Some of my attention is on getting this blog going at last, and not letting it die like I did so many times before. I really hope to gain discipline in this.

Lastly, some art to share!! Yay! One is a drawing I did, in charcoal. A rough sketch, I know. The other is a bookmark I made from plastic canvas, shown earlier on facebook. Enjoy!


Hey, about my pledge back in 2016? I lied. I’m going to give this another good try. This time, by posting an actual blog post! I had been working on that one for a time, and I hope you all like it.

I won’t try to guilt myself into writing. I know now that won’t work. It is all about building habits, not guilting myself into doing what I know I should do. So, I will build a habit of writing, and if I have something worthy of sharing, I’ll post it. And if I don’t, I’ll keep working at it.

Anyone who is still actually reading what I write, thank you for being so very loyal. For the new readers, I may or may not get, welcome. I hope to not disappoint, in any case.

Go in peace, and have an awesome day!

A Drabble of a fanfiction

I am currently working on a hundred theme challenge on I thought I would share one of them here with you today. It is based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, one of my personal favorite fandoms. I have a fair few. But this will work for the first go. I got a number of other fictions either done or in the works. so far, they are either about the Turtles, Gargoyles, or Little Women.

I hope you like this peek into my fanfiction writing.

Breathe Again

Okay. One minute. I can feel the sweat running down my face as I worked at the contraption the enemy of the week set up to kill us. There was still a large tangle of wires and explosives in front of me. Fun.

Hmm, red wire. Check! Oh, good. No big boom. So far so good.

Next wire, let me think. why am I sweating anyway? I’m a turtle. Turtles don’t sweat. Black wire, check No boom. Keep going.

Fifty seconds. I wonder if I’m about to die? May I should just tell the others to make a run for it. Dang the sound-sensitive trigger! Um..there. Green wire, great. Still ticking, not so great. Five wires to go.

Forty seconds. Sewer apples! Um…I’m stuck here. Blue wire? Or green and blue? Which one is next! I really hope the guys don’t figure out I’m starting to guess now…blue! Come on, no time to hesitate, commit! Oh, thank you! Thank you, whatever God is out there! Okay, that makes the next wire easy. Green and blue. Wait a minute…twenty seconds! NO fair! No fair no fair!

Gah, just calm down. Wait, I don’t have time to calm down!Um…okay, focus then. Orange! Check. Whew. Three to go. Then I’m going to die either way. By boom or an aneurysm.

Okay, brown is next? Or is it the grey! Ahh! I can’t’ work with all this pressure! Ack! No time! Fifteen minutes! Errrrrr…..Grey….no, wait! Brown.

One more after the grey. Annnnd, Done! The bomb is completely defused. Nobody died in a massive explosion of flying limbs and innards today. I…I think I can breathe again. And I had better before I faint from stress and lack of oxygen. when did I start holding my breath anyway? And a whole seven seconds to spare. Maybe I might faint anyway. Or that Aneurysm is going to hit about now.

I smiled weakly, and announce, “Okay, and done.”

The smile turned wry when I heard Leo say confidently. “See? I told you Donnie had everything under control.”

Hello, again!

Hi, there friends. I just wanted to do a quick update here.
While I won’t be posting as much here as I would like, I want everyone to know that I am going to try to do NaBloPoMo at my other blog. It is on Blogger and is titled Bookworm Notes. I might do updates here too, and if I have some writing I am particularly proud of, I will post it here as the proper place for such things.

Thank you for reading this humble blurb, and I hope that more, and more substantial will soon be on its way.

Also, anyone else going after NaBloPoMo, hope it all goes well with you. Just keep plugging at it, and if real life happens, don’t sweat it. It’s just a silly challenge.

A word, a ramble scramble word.

I was reading a post from “Alcott is my Passion”. First off, this is book news. Her novel, A Little Woman In Blue, Come out Sept. 15! New Books are the best!

Also, It is refreshing to hear about a project involving the Alcott family that is not about Louisa. I was always curious about May, and will be looking over this book. I’ll probably have to wait longer, for it to be found in a library. But I will be looking for it! Maybe I’ll be able to skim it in a bookstore?
I just know that she would do a great job here. Check out her blog and find out for yourself.

On a more personal note. I hit a bit of a busy time, and won’t have time to post as much. Before I would forget to write and just leave you hanging. But this time, I am trying to learn to be more considerate. I might be able to post something short tomorrow, but no promises after that.

Have a blessed day!
