I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! And an intense Black Friday! I just finished the bulk of my Christmas shopping, after rising at 3:30am and braving the crowds for a few hours, before sleeping and finishing everything up online! … I love the holidays! (:^D
November started out with the Monthly Feature of Gun Lake, Travis Thrasher’s novel about five escaped convicts scrabbling for a new life and wondering if it’s possible. An excerpt from Gun Lake in the first Weekly Blog also showed the devastation that can come about when we refuse to leave our old ways behind.
Another Weekly Blog showed the value of finding peace, relaxation and even a sense of God in times of stillness in “Prison Break”.
And we learned the importance of knowing you’re unconditionally loved and accepted, and the dire consequences of seeking it from the wrong places, in “August Rush”. My wife, Nicki, and I made sure our daughter Abby knows that we will always love her, no matter what.
Finally, in honor of Thanksgiving and the accompanying Black Friday mall rush, “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” showed that staying honest, decent and compassionate has its rewards, even when it seems like less scrupulous people have outclassed you.
Have a great week!
