Took a week off from writing, but time to hit the story again. Still thinking about writing another science-fiction story when I finish my current project. Might try a collection of short stories referring to the paranormal and God. Right now in my daily Bible Reading I'm going through the Book of Job. Old Testament makes for some good, but often extremely tough reading. I get so fed up with the Israelites and how often they turned against God and got clobbered for it. If you haven't read the whole Bible, I really recommend it. A lot of insight into who the Father, the Lamb of God and the Holy Spirit, are. My Dad was a confirmed Atheist, who married Bea, a strong Christian lady. He was out to prove the Bible was filled with mistakes, lies and fables. He made it about halfway and gave his life to the Lord. Really changed him, like it does for most of us. Sure changed me, a bit slow in some areas but I caught on.
The tensions around the globe dishearten me, especially with so many countries in possession of nuclear weapons and sop full of hate and anger. If you keep an eye on the typhoons, hurricanes and major storms and how early they are hitting this year, it can really convince you that climate change is quickening at an alarming rate. Twice as many tropical storms in the Pacific turning into hurricanes and another one just now reported to be upgraded to a category 5 . Taiwan is about to be smacked by major typhoon and the Rockies got smacked with an early snowfall of four feet. I'm not sure, but I think the changing of the leaves from green to gold, and falling is a bit early. What does it mean, only time will tell. Even the different protester groups around the world are now listing climate change as one of their concerns.
Here's the headlines I listed for last three days, maybe you didn't catch these: " UK Supreme Court Rules Prime Minister Johnson Illegally Suspended Parliament"....

Hope you all had a great weekend and have a glorious week before you. For all you Alaskans, I wish you all a fantastic Dividend Day and please, do not be too depressed on Friday after you've spent all the money paying bills. I've always thought they should give the dividends the week before Christmas, but then all the tourists industries would lose out as a lot of Alaskans pay for their winter vacations. Remember that one year when we were given $3, 200 or father back when it was I believe $360.
God Bless, Bill
