May 2 – Of All the Days I’ve Ever Had, This Was One Of Them.

Today just happened. Nothing spectacular went on. I wrote my devotional…took a while because things weren’t clicking. It ended up about 380 words. I took care of trash and recycling. Then I got ready to do laundry. I’ve taken to writing at the laundromat, so I got a little bit of writing done while there. Then, it was home for lunch, took care of a few other things. Only then did I remember that I needed to shower. Like I said…one of those days. I brought my daughter to class, along with dinner for all of us, then went to church. Made arrangements with my pastor to write the forward to the next volume of devotionals I’ll be publishing. Then came home and finished my writing challenge.

April 23 – Another Day, Another Book Cover, Moving Along

Today was a busy day. You’d think a guy could take it easy when he gains a year, but nope, still a busy day. Devotional was written, then after making arrangements and acknowledging birthday wishes on Facebook, I went to do laundry. I did about half of my writing challenge there while waiting for laundry to finish. (We have an issue with our washing machine and dryer now, so everything’s at the laundromat.) Then, lunch, a bit of work around the house, reviewing the covers for my edited devotional books (!!!), and on to chess clubs. After that, I had a fundraising banquet to attend. No, I didn’t fall for a trap pitch. I knew what it was going into it. This was to support Baptist Student work in Texas. Back when I was in college (TCU) it was called Baptist Student Union. It was there that I met Jesus Christ and gave my life to Him. It was there I met my wife. I owe that ministry for some wonderful things in my life. I’m happy to help support their work. When I got home, I finished my writing challenge. I’m completely reworking my short story involving time travel.

April 3 – What a Day!

It was a long year today. Think about it…anyway, that’s the best way to describe today. I got up and worked on my devotional after breakfast. It was 458 words. I took a little liberty with the words of Jesus to the Pharisees. After that I posted the same blog on all three of my blogs about helping finance our Rwanda trip. Then, I had to get some laundry done. My daughter asked if I was going to do towels, and when I said yes, she asked if I’d do some for her. No problem. It took me an hour longer to finish because I folded up all her washcloths. I came home, and before I put the laundry away, I had to go get groceries. When I got back, I had to get ready to leave immediately for a chess lesson. I finished the lesson and came home for a bit, then headed to my wife’s college for an international dinner made by the culinary arts department. (It was delicious.) I finally got home and started working on editing around 9:00. I got 6 days worth of devotionals edited and I should finish this book tomorrow. So, today’s recap:

Devotional – 458 Words: April 3 – You Can’t Make Everybody Happy
