What a long week – I had to remind myself that it was Sunday.
I’ve got a few posts ready for the week, but only a few. I plan on taking off this week to write my epic account of a story so startling that it will change the world forever. (Of course, it will have to be edited, and as Jeff pointed out on Facebook, I would hate to be that person.) Of course, it may or may never see completion and if it does, it may or may never see a publisher, and if it does, it may or may never see a printing. But, at least I can say I wrote something, right? It’s a rather familiar story, with a different setting, style, etc…
Maybe some of my dear reader’s could help me out when I am finished with the first draft?
I hope that all of your holiday celebrations went well, and that each of your arrived through it safely. Of course, we still have the new year coming, and people tend to celebrate making it through a year by compiling a year’s worth of daring stupidity in one night. Stay safe out there.
We have a good morning reading out of our Mosaic and found Psalm 98 especially joyful this morning.
Sing a new song to the LORD, for he has done wonderful deeds. His right hand has won a mighty victory; his holy arm has shown his saving power!
The LORD has announced his victory and has revealed his righteousness to every nation!
He has remembered his promise to love and be faithful to Israel. The ends of the earth have seen the victory of our God.
Shout to the LORD, all the earth; break out in praise and sing for joy!
Sing your praise to the LORD with the harp, with the harp and melodious song, with trumpets and the sound of the ram’s horn. Make a joyful symphony before the LORD, the King!
Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise! Let the earth and all living things join in.
Let the rivers clap their hands in glee! Let the hills sing out their songs of joy
before the LORD. For the LORD is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world with justice, and the nations with fairness. (Psa 98:1-9)
I have a few ideas of the New Year concerning posting, such as blogging through books, as James has done, perhaps concerning Greek books, and having reflections on others like Rodney. Both are inspiring bloggers in their own spectrum. I am soon approaching my second year of blogging, so maybe a change-up will keep it fresh. We’ll see. I will be starting school in January – I have two classes left. I took time off a long time ago for several reasons, went back to school, then because of a wonderful job opportunity I had to take more time off. Well, I have two classes left (5 hours) which I will finish in June and then apply for a Master’s program in December.
(That is, of course, if get publish and my book enters the 49th printing in two years I might have to reconsider my plans.)
I’ve tried to find this song on youtube, etc… but to no avail. It’s by Willie Nelson from the Songbird album, and the only portion I could find was on Amazon, which is where I downloaded it. Just really wanted to share with you the style which I found interesting:
One of my favorite songs, which seems to be played only around the holiday season is ‘Beautiful Star of Bethlehem’ and especially in the bluegrass style. Hey, I live in the mountains of West Virginia, so enjoying bluegrass is almost a prerequisite:
Have a great one, my friends.
