A Pretty Sweet Deal

When my book of daily encouragements, Be Still, came out, my publisher encouraged me to do the whole advertising, book signings, etc., thing, and I did so with great expectations. Visions of grandeur danced in my head, as I bounced merrily on the springboard of what I perceived to be success, fame and fortune.

sweet dealUnfortunately, no one had filled the proverbial pool, and I hit bottom hard and quick. It was painful, but then, gradually, God began to remind me of something I’d lost sight of. I heard His voice–a loving whisper–telling me, “It’s not about you, Charlie.”

No, it’s not about me, it’s about God, it’s about each one of you, and it’s about each and every person I come in contact with for the rest of my days.

Across A Crowded Room

This morning, after having returned from the recent book signing event in Borger, I reflect upon the fact that though I was with so many family members during the short visit, I had very few opportunities to “visit” with most of them. I didn’t even get to have a conversation with Mom! Read the rest of this entry »

We’re back from the Borger book signing, and the dog was sure glad to see us! She’s sound asleep now! She doesn’t sleep much while were gone; too worried, I reckon. Read the rest of this entry »
