Gideon’s International

On Sunday morning, a member of the Gideon’s International spoke to our church congregation. We watched two video clips because the speaker told the technician the wrong title. We didn’t mind!

The first showed Tempe Brown’s testimony of how she came to Christ. As a single mom she needed to earn money and yet be home more than she was at the time working two jobs. She found out she could sing and she looked something like Cher decades ago. So she auditioned to sing for a rock band and made it.

Her girls were becoming wild and actually ended up in prison. She never felt so low in her life. As a singer, she spent lots of time in hotels. Most of them held Gideon Bibles. Eventually she picked one up and started reading it. She went into some detail and then she wiped tears away as she thanked the Gideon’s.

One of her comments, she met Christians that accepted her with love.

May God bless you. If you’ve never read a Bible, maybe you could pick one up somewhere and give it a try.

Life System Set Up

I posted a comment on’s blog and clicked to my site. I haven’t posted for a month now! Yowza! My daughter and her four children left our house after spending about twenty-four hours here, eight of the hours sleeping. I’ve been working through the system suggested in the book by David Allen entitled, “Getting Things Done.” I’ve been getting a freelance writing business started. I’ve been cleaning house, and hosting a writers group. I’ve been writing! I’ve been preparing for worship services at our church. I’ve been connecting with relatives from out of state via phone. I’ve been reading the Word of God and soaking in God’s presence! My family got invited to a Messianic Passover Seder the night before Easter (or Resurrection Sunday), as many like to call Easter. So, now that I’m on this roll of “Getting Things Done,” I should be more consistent on my blog. Praise God!
