I have decided to participate in the National Novel Writing Month.  It is a project to get people to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. (the month of November)

I have decided to write a young adult novel called "There Is No Such Thing as Vampires."  It is about Sophie Anderson, a pragmatic 7th grader who likes science and silent movies. When Dimitrie Tudose arrives from Romania as a foreign exchange student, everyone is convinced he is a vampire. Sophie sets out to prove everyone, including her best friend, is wrong.

We'll see how it goes.

Sooners Top BCS Poll

Much to the dismay and whining of lots of disgruntled Longhorns, Bulldogs, Tides, Tigers, Hogs, etc, the Oklahoma Sooners are currently number one on the BCS poll!

Oh that we can maintain our standing!

Chilean Miner Rescue a Picture of Jesus

As we were studying Scripture tonight at our mid-week Bible Study, it came to mind that the Chilean miner rescue is a picture of salvation through Jesus Christ.

  • The miners couldn't do anything to rescue themselves.  (Ephesians 2:9)
  • When the "capsule" arrived, they had a choice to get in or to not get in.  (Acts 4:12, Romans 10:13)
  • Even inside the capsule, they had to depend on something greater than themselves to get to the destination. (Ephesians 2:8)
  • They weren't rescued as soon as they stepped into the capsule, but had to go on the 1/2 hour trip to the top, but they couldn't be rescued UNLESS they got in the capsule. (Romans 8:24-25)
  • If they chose to not get in the capsule, they would surely die. (Romans 6:23)
  • There was only one way out. (John 14:6)
I'm sure there are other similarities.  Can you think of some?

New Sight

What would you do if somehow you had the ability to see beyond the physical world?  How would you respond?   Would it be a blessing? or a curse?

Julie Drake was approached by an old woman who laid her hands upon Julie's eyes and pronounced "may you be granted new sight with which to see."  Julie doens't think much more about until she begins to see things which she has never noticed before.  But what is she to do with her newly gained ability?

NEW SIGHT is my new work in progress.  Like JACKPOT! it will take place in Tulsa.  I estimate it to have about 90,000 words.  Unlike JACKPOT! I will not be creating an online persona for Julie Drake.
