Twelve Traditions of Christmas

Hey, everyone! I’m here to ask you to tell me about any traditions that you and your family have for Christmas. I have a couple to share, but certainly not twelve! If I get twelve traditions, I’ll share them over the twelve days of Christmas. Please please share with me! Thanks!



Hey, everybody! I’m in the middle of deciding whether I want to use wordpress, blogger, or both. In the meantime… I guess I’ve kinda neglected ya’ll, haven’t I? All of last week I posted on my blogger: so you can go there to see what I said. Please also tell me which blog YOU like better and find it easier to follow. You can comment on either blog or both! TTYL!

Several Random Topics

Topic 1: My blog. I still have one! I don’t know how many of you even noticed, but yesterday I did not have a blog. It was deactivated due to a violation of the terms of service… leaving me somewhat panicky and rather angry and heartbroken. I reread the terms of service and didn’t see anything wrong, but when I read the message that came up when I tried logging in it was talking about advertising. The closest thing I could come up with is all of my cool little buttons on the side of my blog. BUT EVERYBODY HAS THOSE, I protested. I emailed wordpress within minutes of discovering my problem. Their reply wasn’t as quick as it could have been, but the problem was resolved. There’s a website which I shall not name (Due to the fact that even linking to them will shut me down again) who does wordpress themes but they have junk in their codes. I tried using one of their themes and got shut down in consequence. BUT I changed over to a wordpress theme that’s actually here on wordpress, and here I go again! SO happy!

Now for topic #2! I am getting into this habit of posting lyrics to songs that have music I don’t agree with, but I wanted to share this song from Fireproof. It’s written by John Waller. Again, I do not support the type of music that is used with this song, but I wanted to share the lyrics:

I’m waiting
I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident
Taking every step in obedience
While I’m waiting
I will serve You
While I’m waiting
I will worship
While I’m waiting
I will not faint
I’ll be running the race
Even while I wait

That’s just the first verse and chorus, but that’s the best part anyhow, so there you have it! I think that the lines that really mean the most to me are where it says, “I will move ahead…” and “I’ll be running in the race even while I wait” It’s so easy for me to just stop and wait for God to make the next move when I should be pressing on!

Now that I’ve mentioned Fireproof, I’ll move on to my third topic: Courageous. I’m sure you all know about this movie by now, but just in case you don’t, Courageous is the next film that Sherwood Pictures is going to do. I’m really excited to see how it goes. It’s about… I wanna say 4 cops, but I’m not positive about that. Anyhow, it’ll be a “police movie” as Seth would call it. 😀
Now this may make ya’ll think that I’m totally nuts, but I’m not really happy with the way that Sherwood has gone about advertising for their new movie. I realize that the more viewers they have, the better. I just feel like the way they’ve gone about it is SO in tune with the ways of the world. Why aren’t they just stepping aside and trusting God to bring in the necessary viewers and money? Do any of you have thoughts on this? Feel free to call me a jerk… It won’t change anything, but if it makes you feel better, go right ahead!

So there’s my three topics for the day. 🙂 You know, I love blogging, but it’s even more fun when I get comments! So please be sure to let me know you dropped by!

Bay’s Book Blog Button

After toying around with several ideas for a button, I finally came up with something I liked for my friend Bailey. I mentioned her before in my post “The Blog Around the Corner.”


If you want the button, let me know and I’ll give you the code. Unfortunately, I lost my code for putting a code box in my post…

The Looking Glass

I have had several people from facebook, blogs, and forums ask me about my book, so here is a little bit about it! Today I reached 20,000 words, so that leaves 30,000 words to get in the next… 17 days? Oh, boy! I’d better go write there instead of here!!!

Title: The Looking Glass

Summary: (Subject to change! LOL)”Things are not always as they seem.” Holly and Jared’s grandfather had said to them before his death. Puzzled by his meaning, Holly and Jared go on to discover the secret behind two ordinary-looking mirrors. Finding themselves transported to another world, the pair must fight a force that seeks to destroy an entire universe – and search for a way back home.

Excerpt: ‘He was lost in the woods, and stopped at this cottage to see if anyone could help him. The old woman who opened the door was ancient looking, but beautiful. He asked if she could help him and she said, ‘Come in and have something warm to drink. I’ll see you right.’ So he went into the house. On one wall was a painting of one of the most beautiful women he had ever seen. Her hair was blacker than a starless night, and her skin was as fair and white as clean snow. He commented to the old woman about the painting and she replied, ‘Ah, yes. It is a painting of one of my ancestors. Perhaps you are familiar with her story?’ He cleared his throat and said, ‘If you’ll tell me her name, I would be better able to tell you whether or not I’m familiar with her.’ The old woman smiled and said, ‘She was called Snow White. The looking glass on the wall is the one which was once owned by the evil queen.’ He looked at her incredulously. ‘How is that possible?’ he asked. ‘There are many worlds,’ the old woman replied, ‘And the world which I come from is called Aeroth. It is the land where most of your fairy tales come from, because it is the land where every girl finds her prince charming and every lad finds his princess bride. For many, it is the land of happily ever after.’
