Thoughts and Ideas from my followers

Hey Ladies and Gentleman,

I just wanted to get your input on how the blog looks since using the new Mayer theme? I am planning on doing a Mon., Wed., and Fri., posting schedule. Mondays would be about my writing journey, and how things are going as far as getting name recognition and so on. Wednesdays would be Photo day from somewhere in DC. Fridays would be a Q and A type blog. You all can send questions and I will pick a couple to answer.

Let me know what you think in the comments sention below.

Peace,

Josh

Rant against Facebook pages

This is a rant against facebook.
SO facebook is being a real pain the the you know what. It sucks because unless you have 29 likes you can not see your page stats or activity. This blows because there is only so much that you can do with a page. Your stats and activity numbers help you with how to better promote your page. Anyways check it out at http://www.facebook.com/samaelandtheguardians

Granted after all is said and done at least the page is up and running.

Recommended Reading: Bird By Bird

This is a great post. I am ordering this book for myself soon.

The Daily Post

I referenced Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird: Some Instructions in Writing and Life in last week’s “Five Posts to Write Right Now,” and we’ve used her in Blogging 101 assignments as well. Personally, I turn to this book again and again — when I’m staring down a blank screen and a deadline or feeling just not good enough, flipping to any page usually restores my perspective and helps unclog my thorniest word-jam.

The story of the book’s title sums it up perfectly:

Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report on birds written that he’d had three months to write, which was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books on birds…

Good Friday reflections and looking toward to the future

I know this is a day late, but better late than never. In Christian circles the Easter weekend beginning with Good friday is a time of Prayer, Praise, Salvation and Thanksgiving. It is a time to reflect on the human condition as well as ourselves personally. We look to the one who is our Eternal Hope, and Salvation. It is only through His sacrifice that we have been redeemed, and may come boldly before the throne of grace with no need for a human mediator.

The past couple of years have been tough for myself and my family. It was only through our faith in God, the support of our church family and the strength that God gives us when we have used the last of ours. I have read some articles that debunk the verse “God will no give you more than you are able to bear.” Some cite the death of a child, disease, death of a family member,loss of job or some horrible catastrophic incident that happens. All of those would bring anybody to their knees, and make you want to scream, yell, shake your fist, or even go off on God with a long string of expletives.

When there is nothing else that we can hold onto to and when you have reached your last thread of sanity that is where Hope shines its brightest helping and guiding you back from the edge of destruction. I believe God does not give us more than we are able to bear because it is HE who created us in the womb. It is HE who knows how much we can bear, and we as human beings can only view oue strengths and weaknesses through finite eyes and mental faculties.

Loss, death, and tragic things are all a part of life. My intention is to in no way diminsh the pain and anguish that people go through. There is a God who took human form in the person of Christ Jesus. He lived on this earth for 33 years and suffered everything that humanity goes through so that he could be the perfect sacrfice. The only person who could take your place. He is our Hope, and our futre. He is the reason that we celebrate on Sunday morning. Were it not for His resurrection what hope would humanity have in the end.

To the people who say God is dead or God is not real. I would rather live my life like there is a God, and die finding out there isn’t; than to live my life like there is no God and to die only to find out HE is real. There is no condemnation here because I know I have made my fair share of mistakes.

This is my prayer and blessing to you all whether or not you believe in God or another god.

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious unto you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.” Num. 6:24-26

“who I am and why I’m here”

Hey All,

My
Name is Josh, and I am from Dale City, VA. I have decided to come “out” in terms of being online. I believe as human being we learn from the experiences that we have, and that the knowledged gained should be shared. Also you are never to old to learn and never too young to start learning. We feed off of experiences, and I believe that I might be able to help people out there I do not know. I may have gone through something that you are currently going through, and I may write something that with help you through it.

I am also trying to become an author as well. I mainly write paranormal/supernatural/action/romance type stuff, but I am not afraid to branch out and try something new, I already have my first book in the series I am writing planned out, and have started writing character profiles and developing the plot lines. All in all it should be an exciting series though.

Welcome!!!

Hey You,

Thanks for checking out my blog. This is the first entry of many, but this blog will be mixed with various stuff. I may throw in a personal blog sometime, or somthing about my writing another. It depends on my mood. The one thing you can always count on though is that this will be a positive blog with a positive message threaded throughout.
