I will be doing a short post tonight. I am ill with some kind of crud.

I got the crude from a plane ride full of sick people. Talk about a trapped environment.

I was coming home from San Antonio, Texas, after my team, The Oregon State University Beavers football team lost to Texas, in a heart breaker. We were ahead the whole game except for the last two minutes. We lost 31-27.

It was a great trip except for that loss. Lots of great restaurants, and many fun times with friends.

_______________________________________________________________

How do you handle a loss? In our lives we face many losses and victories. The victories are nice, but those losses seem to come around when you least want them to.

I was devastated for a while. Especially after the game when we had to hear the taunts from the Texas fans.

The hurt was hard to handle, but I regrouped and went on.

That is what we need to do with life in general. “Things,” will happen to us. We will feel devastated. That is the point we will have to get ourselves up off the ground and keep going.

By the way… God is always there for you. He won’t stop the trials and storms, but He will be there to calm them.

Remember:

 You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I had the joyous moment of being able to tell my children that my books has received a national award. I wasn’t bragging, I was wanting them to know that hard work will lead you to rewards like this.

You too can get a few treats, and endorsements if you also work hard and apply to the many award programs.

My award is from the Reader’s Favorite Awards. It gives out awards every years for the top books in various categories. My category was Christian self-help. They sent me stickers to put on my books, and it will help in the sales of the books in the future.

I am so saddened by the recent events in the United States where the shootings took so many lives. The last one there were 20 children between the ages of 5-8 years old.

Why did these horrendous acts happen. Why would God allows this?

I can only say that our God is a livening God. he is such a loving God that He allows us to make choices, and then we have to face Him later for the decisions we make.

God will deal with the people who caused these horrible acts, and since some were little children, I am sure He won’t be very understanding with the people who caused their deaths.

God made you and I in His own image. he didn’t even do that for the angels. If he loves us that much, you can know that he wants only the best for each of us. You can also knows that he is very sad about the happens not only in the United States, but around the world.

Remember:

You are not alone.

You are not forsaken.

You are not unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I got a call from my dentist yesterday. No, it wasn’t to set-up an appointment. It was a call to tell me they had sold out of my book, “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World.”

Yes, I have a free book sitting in the waiting room for the clients to look at. You sometimes have to use a free book to sell many others.  It has a card and a little note in it to check with the receptionist if they are interested in buying it. That’s it. No more promotion than that.

I have sold over ten books right from my dentist’s office.

You can do the same thing. If your dentist is not in a clinic (they are by themselves) ask if you can leave a book in their waiting room; leave two or three books with the receptionist, and wait for the money to start coming in. Be sure to have a note on the inside cover about the books available.

There are many unusual places to sell your books, and there is very little effort to do it. I will share more in my next post.

Do you sometimes feel that God isn’t listening. Do you think He doesn’t care. Have you felt God doesn’t even know who you are?

God is a very loving God. We just need to let Him show us that. We don’t need to wonder if He loves us. He created us in His own image. He didn’t even do that for the angels. If He went as far as to do that for you, don’t you think He loves you? Read the versus below and see God has made you His adopted child. He loves you and will care for you like any earthly father would for their child.

 “But when the appropriate time had come, God sent out his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we may be adopted as sons with full rights. And because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, who calls “Abba! Father!  Galatians 4:4-6″

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
