Would You Read A Book on a Blog?

Would you read a book on a blog?  How about a book on this blog site?
I am now revamping Inspiration Point to do just that.  Once done, I can share what I’m going to write for the 2nd book.

There is more to this story! Continue reading “Would You Read A Book on a Blog?”

Published My First Book!!

bookcoverFor the record, Inspiration Point is far from dead. If you read my last blog post, then you already know what happened. For some time, I attempted to write a book, maintain my blog and care for my mother. It’s not an easy juggling act.

Last December, I decided to focus on the book and finish writing it. Two months later, I finished “A Lesser Human: An Anthology of Overcoming” and it saw publication in February 2016.🙂 Continue reading “Published My First Book!!”

The Coming New Year

https://insppoint.files.wordpress.com/2015/12/8d283-christmas-day-and-happy-new-year-religious-verses.jpeg?w=863The New Year is fast approaching and I will make one definite prediction. Someone is going to make a resolution and they hope to keep it. How can I know? It happens every year and it will likely continue.  What resolution are you considering?

If you’re reading this and it’s not January 1st; it’s not too late.  A good time to start a smart diet is often today. The same thing can be applied to reading certain books. Reading the Bible in a year is a popular resolution.  Of course, it is not the only one. What’s your resolution for the coming year?

A Columbus Day Retreat

ThreeSpringsDuring the Columbus Day weekend, I’ll be heading to Three Springs for a needed vacation. Did you ever have one of those days? I have been in need of one, for quite some time.

Three Springs is located in the mountains, past Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The mountain scenery is gorgeous; especially during the autumn season. My church regularly goes there, every year. I’ve been there, a few times and I love it. You can find out more, by visiting their web site at http://www.threespringsministries.org/

My only regrets is that I can’t go horseback riding. Then again, I’m 50 years old and I haven’t ridden a horse, since ’92. Don’t you think it’s time that I rethink that idea? However, there are activities that I can do and enjoy. If you have a mobility problem, then I’d not recommend this place.

I should be back in town, on Columbus Day. That’s a Monday. It’s unlikely that I’ll sit and write an article, the following day. Plus, I have another writing project in the wing. On June 2014, I wrote an article called “The Builder” and I’d like to use a retooled version of it in a chapter in a book or e-book.

Before I can use it; a model will have to be created. Why? I have trouble in painting a picture of something I’ve not seen. Hence, I need to create a visual reference. My only tool is Minecraft. Minecraft is a sandbox game and you can build some beautiful structures in it.

If you have any alternative ideas that I can use on my PC, then I’d like to hear it. Of course, I can also use my large tablet and it’s more powerful than my desktop.  I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas.


Dealing With Changes

A week ago, Shore Vineyard held a discussion called “How to Thrive in the Upcoming Financial Crisis”. The discussion centers on a book called “The Mystery of the Shemitah It’s a book written by Jonathan Cahn. I saw the video based on this book and it’s pretty good.

If you took the time and listened to the audio, then you will discover that we did more than talk about the book. We talked about solutions and a willingness to listen to God’s Word. I’ll give you, a hint. We did not talk about owning gold; as not everyone can afford it.

I am one of those people, who can’t afford to buy gold. What about me? How should I prepare for something, that may or may not happen? A wise man sees the upcoming trouble and takes prudent steps; so that he is not reacting to fear. 

As the discussion continues, I quietly asked Jesus and myself, “What should I do? How do I prepare for potential changes?” One thing certain, our country is definitely in a financial mess. You simply need to turn on Fox News or CNN. What’s next? Continue reading “Dealing With Changes”
