Rocky Mountain Oasis

Congratulations, Lynnette!!! We are SO proud of you. We wish we could be there to help you celebrate.

Today is the book launch party for Rocky Mountain Oasis, our daughter's book that came out a week or so ago.

If you would like to read an excerpt of her book, go to lynnettebonner.com. You can also order a signed copy from her site. Or order an unsigned copy for a little more moola from Amazon and some of the other big on-line book companies.

African Diamonds

I lived in Africa for many years. We once visited a diamond mine. I expected to see glinting lights when we looked into a hopper of stones cascading out of the washer. Disappointment flooded over me when the stones looked like ordinary gravel.

Diamonds need to be cut, faceted and polished to become jewels. The same is true with each of us who want to become "precious jewels" to our Lord. The first cleaving happens when we place our wills at His feet and accept Him as Lord and Savior of our lives. Then the faceting and polishing can begin.

I had a distinct polish to my humility facet this week. I've connected with my grandniece on Facebook. On her "wall" she posted a picture of her pet. "Nice puppy!" I commented. It turns out, on MUCH closer inspection, that the creature is not a dog at all -- but a goat! Oh well, my brother got a rib-shaking laugh at his sister's expense. (Sigh) I've made an appointment with my ophthalmologist. I DID tell you, didn't I, that I'm almost 70? Cataracts are forming!
