Had a wonderful Easter with my family.

All my children were there. Lots of good food. Lots of laughter and story telling about each other. No masks, and lots of hugging.

We must not forget

those brothers and sisters who had to spend Easter out in the cold, with not much good to eat. They are sacrificing their time to keep us free.

President Biden

is quickly turning both parties against him. His policies are causing havoc. He made the Major League Offices move the All Star Game away from Atlanta, because of the new legislation the state had put in place. It was strict rules on voting, and Biden didn’t like it.

He seems to be causing his own demise.

During my deployment to South Korea,

I wasn’t happy when the holidays came. I wasn’t with my family,

I so appreciate those who are serving during these times.

Update on my new book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In an Out of the Trenches of life.

Just need to clean up some interviews

The more I see the results of them the more I am sure you will like them.

I am also adding a new appendix

It will share some titles of good books for the military. There are some outstanding books that are very accurate and have amazing true stories.

Then it will be off to the publisher.

I have one picked out that I have already checked out. They will do a fabulous job.

I hope to have it ready for fall this year.

I have been working very hard on my new book, “Signs of Hope: For the Military. I feel that it will help many soldiers and their families. The appendix for this book will have one of the most complete lists available for finding help in any area a person may be searching for pertaining to the military.

As of 3-31-15 I have connected with a military expert from Alabama. His name is Leroy Hurt. He is a West Point Graduate, and will be advising me through-out the process of writing the book.I also have been connecting with many retired officers from various segments of the military. This will be very valuable to have their knowledge in putting together the book.

Be looking for updates on the book and other news at this site, or at http://www.dailysignsofhope.com.

I am going to be completely changing the format on this site. I will now be spending much more time on updating you and sharing on the progress of the new book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches,” (working title) along with some excerpts from the book from time to time.

I have now talked to many officers and soldiers that are either in the military now, or have retired. I am hoping they might endorse the book when it is completed.

The appendix is growing daily. It will be one of the most complete resources for the military around, It will cover everything from babysitting help to Crises Center numbers to call if people are hurting mentally.

I have been writing every day and I am about half way finished. As I see the book unfolding, I see hope. I see practical suggestions for finding ways to cope.

I am living the book daily. I am writing about my own experiences while I was in the service. I will sharing my own self-doubts, fears, and depression to show that I am one of the military, and not an outsider who thinks he knows what to say.

I have been checking out other books about the military, and there are some very good ones, but I am having a hard time where one puts the reader first and talks directly to them. Many of them are memoirs, or sharing accounts of certain phases of one soldiers life.

Stay with me! I am on your side! Let me put this together for you and hopefully give you some strength, and perseverance.

+ Update: April 8th, 2015

I have been in contact with many military people on Facebook, and Twitter.

I am especially having great success adding many military people to my Twitter account. If you  are a military person and want to connect with me on Twitter, put in @heavenencounter and follow. I will follow back every time if I know you are connected to the military somehow. You can also connect with me on Facebook. Just put my name Doug Bolton in the Facebook search area. I also have an author Facebook page at: “Fans of Doug Bolton.” I will be glad to return the favor of liking your page.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

As we start a new year, we wonder what is ahead of us. We wonder if the seas will be calm, and if we can achieve more this year.

We don’t need to worry about tomorrow. Jesus  tells us that tomorrow has enough worries of its own. We need to concentrate on the here and now. What can we do today to make our future brighter?

We all make our New Year’s resolutions, but in reality they are only a list. They don’t happen if we don’t take action.

Think about what you want to accomplish this year, and go for it. No stammering. No hesitation. Just plodding ahead and making those dreams come true.

So many of us think we know what we want, and then never do it. We just need to take that first step.

I have committed myself to get back to writing on my books everyday. I never did nearly enough writing last year. I stumbled around wondering if I was good enough to be an author. Well, I already am one with my first book being published and doing well.

Check out:

Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World, by clicking on the “Bookstore,” tab at the top of this page.

Never feel you aren’t wise enough to accomplish your goals and dream. Go for it, and you will see that you are a much better person than you ever thought you could be!

Remember:

You are not alone.

You are not forsaken.

You are not unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
