Deep thoughts to ponder...

If you ever thought you couldn't liken the scriptures to yourself, please consider the following:

Job 5:6

"Can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egg?"

If that isn't applicable to my daily life, I don't know what is. I mean, have you ever eaten just an egg white? Especially without salt?

Which brings me to the next question. Did Job have high blood pressure so he had to restrict his sodium intake? or high cholesterol, that he had to limit the egg yolks?

I'm thinking that food played a more serious role in Job's life than I first thought. He was going through some mighty harsh times and yet his wits were about him enough to know that some of us really relate to things better when they are phrased in terms of food.

Or bathrooms.

Consider the age-old question--Does a bear [potty] in the woods? (G-rating added)

My answer is--Not if there's a flush toilet around.

Anything else would be just too hard to bear--or bare.

At any rate, it's the reason I prefer camping at an ocean-front, five-star resort in Cancun.

No bears, an abundance of salt, and hold the eggs entirely.

Did I mention cabana boys bearing diet Coke?

Having Hope is here!

My new book is finally out and it looks great!

Having Hope continues the story of Kit Matthews and takes her to Romania where she has to make some tough choices.

There is absolutely nothing like holding a brand new book in your hands, breathing in the aroma of ink and paper, and anticipating the journey you're about to travel. I love reading and I love writing.

The book will be on the bookstore shelves in 2-4 weeks. Meanwhile, you can order an autographed copy directly from my website

In this moment, Steve Martin (the actor), comes to my mind:

1) From the movie, The Jerk - "The new phone books are here, the new phone books are here! I am somebody!" and:

2) Fromthe movie, Mixed Nuts - "In every pothole there is hope. You have to drop the "o" "t" and "l" and move the "p" over, but in every pothole there is hope!"

I am also a Steve Martin fan!

Happy reading!
